    Are you a member of the community that enjoys being creative and making your in-game house stand out? Maybe you are an upcoming designer wanting to enter the SWG Legends Galactic Homeshow contest? Interior decorators can add even more of a personal touch with rotation commands which were added in SOE’s Chapter 8 version of the game. These commands are ready and available for use within Omega and can be used to make moving furniture easier and more fun! Home designers can use pitch and roll abilities when they complete the Force Shui collections!

    What are the Force Shui collections?

    The Force Shui collections are a series of two in-game collections which are named “The Master of Force Shui” after completing these collections they will allow you to have more customization upon placing items into your house.

    Firstly. There is Force Shui Pitch - This will require you to explore the galaxy and click on certain pieces of strangely placed furniture. Don’t worry, we will give you the waypoints; We aren’t that mean!


    Force Shui - Pitch

    These are five items needed to complete this collection.
    /way rori -5050 -2272 Force Shui - Pitch #1
    /way tatooine -1141 -3605 Force Shui - Pitch #2
    /way endor -866 1558 Force Shui - Pitch #3
    /way dathomir -45 -1616 Force Shui - Pitch #4
    /way corellia -5514 -2690 Force Shui - Pitch #5


    Force Shui - Roll

    These are five items needed to complete this collection.

    /way talus 4324 5185 Force Shui - Roll #1
    /way naboo -5513 -45 Force Shui - Roll #2
    /way yavin4 -6880 -5660 Force Shui - Roll #3
    /way dantooine 1593 -6361 Force Shui - Roll #4
    /way lok 529 5088 Force Shui - Roll #5


    What are Pitch, Yaw, and Roll?
    Pitch, yaw, and roll refer to the rotation axis for an object.
    The image below of an X-Wing fighter displays each axis.

    Rotation around the front-to-back axis is called roll and rotation around the lateral (side-to-side) axis is called pitch. Yaw is being able to rotate an object left to right.

    The left and right furniture rotation commands use yaw commands. Open the radial menu on the furniture you would like to adjust.
    Under Rotate, select Yaw + and Yaw - or use the slash command /rotateFurniture yaw The selected degree value is reflected in the Rotate radial sub-menu; the default value is 90.


    Copying a Rotation

    You can also copy the rotation of one object and apply it to another. Select copy rotate radial menu or the slash command /rotateFurniture copy while you have one object selected in the green bracket and one selected in the blue bracket. This is especially useful if you are decorating something fiddly like a Fish Tank!

    The current look at target (blue bracket) will change to the same rotation and orientation as the current intended target (green bracket).


    Pitch and Roll

    Once you have completed the collection to be able to rotate objects around the pitch and roll axes these commands are at your disposal to add even more flair and fire to your decorating!

    Please note these decoration options are only available after completing the collection and won’t be visible until they are completed.

    Pitch + and Pitch - on the Rotate radial menu, or the command /rotateFurniture pitch rotate the object around the pitch axis.
    Use Roll + and Roll - on the Rotate radial menu or command /rotateFurniture roll ) to rotate an object around the roll axis.

    Copying Location and Height
    You can use copy commands to move objects quickly and easily.

    When you select Copy Location in the Move radial menu, or use the command /moveFurniture copy location the current look at (blue bracket) target will move to the same horizontal location as the current intended (green bracket) target.
    Copy Height which is very similar to Copy Location is also in the Move radial menu. Selecting Copy Height or typing /moveFurniture copy height will move the current look at (blue bracket) target to the same height as the current intended (green bracket) target.
    Both objects must be located in the same room in order to use the Copy Height and Copy Location commands.


    Random Rotations

    If you're looking to add some originality or craziness inside your house you can also randomly rotate objects for some interesting results.. Use the slash command /rotateFurniture yaw random or choose Yaw Random to randomly rotate around the yaw axis only.
    Choose Roll Random or /rotateFurniture roll random to randomly rotate around the roll axis only. Pitch Random on the Rotate menu or /rotateFurniture pitch random randomly rotates around the pitch axis only.

    To really take a chance on an innovative design choose Random on the Rotate radial sub-menu or type /rotateFurniture random to randomly rotate the object around all 3 axes.

    If the results end up being to much or if you just want to start from scratch then choose the reset option in the Rotate radial sub-menu or type /rotateFurniture reset to reset the object's placement to its original position.

    Vendors are not fond of being moved into odd positions around your store, so please keep in mind that you cannot rotate a vendor around its pitch or roll axes! You also cannot use /rotateFurniture copy to rotate a vendor. /rotateFurniture random on a vendor will only rotate the vendor around the yaw axis.

    Other useful commands

    /PickupAllRoomItemsIntoInventory - will attempt to pickup all items in the room you are currently in.
    /PickupAllRoomItemsIntoInventory -overload - will attempt to pickup all items in the room you are currently in while ignoring inventory overload.
    /DropAllInventoryItemsIntoRoom - will attempt to drop all items in your inventory into the room you are currently in.
    /saveDecorationLayout - will attempt to save the current decoration layout of the room you are in - ideal if your trying something new but want the option to go back to how things were before you started
    /restoreDecorationLayout - will attempt to restore a previously saved decoration layout.

    We hope that this inspires you to enter our Galactic Homeshow contest that we conduct each month!
