A lot of people are always complaining that they can't twist bodies in the building creator. But I have found a glitch. First you get a normal body, and put any old connectors onto it. Then put a body onto the connector, and twist the connector and you will have a twisted body. THEN, hold alt and click once. Another body should appear inside the already twisted one. Then, throw away the connector and the copied body should be left at an angle without a connector. Just remember that the only way to move it easily is using shift and ctrl. I hope this guide helps. It helps me make this kind of thing:



Pic is clicky.

Try it for yourself!

Well I discovered it before, but I would really like it if you got every node for every part.

That took what seemed like 3 years to make...

Has anyone else found this useful in anyway at all? If you make a creation with this strategy please post it here.

P.S Do you think this could be a sticky?

That is one method... but actually you do not even need to use 'Alt'/make copies. Use the connector to rotate your building part to the angle you want... then simply use 'Shift' & 'Ctrl' keys to move the piece in question off of the connector. You can also use 'Shift' and 'Ctrl' to float parts, and/or to move detail parts away from the primary building parts (so that they do not need to be connected to a base part at all).

Here is an example of a GA prop which includes both tilted base parts, and also 'unattached' detail parts, constructed using 'Shift' & 'Ctrl'. (It is tough to see in the Sporpedia preview... but neither the ink well nor the pen are touching the main parts/book stand.)

But if you don't want the connector to be there, you DO have to copy.

Does tab work for this? I know tab does allow rotation in all directions, but am not sure what all you can use it on.
