Shrink & Grow!

Hi everyone, here's what's new recently!

- You can now shrink to tiny sizes... or become giant! Check it out by pressing Me -> "...", and paging to the last settings page.

- You can now copy & paste thing part position, rotation & size during editing! Just click on a part's "..." dialog, the last page there contains the buttons. This also allows you to reset a state to its original first state position if you accidentally moved it in a succeeding state.

- There's new trumpet sounds in 3 octaves you can use!

- Overvisor has been streaming Anyland a lot! Check out his channel and YouTube

- We fixed an issue where "tell" triggers on holdables would cause haptic buzz! Thanks Nic & Pickles Baby!

- We've added missing new materials for the "do creation parts" command!

- We fixed an issue where you weren't able to delete thing parts during editing if you had minimized the Create dialog!

- Now when you context-laser a thing part to edit it, or switch its states using the top number buttons, its current animation transition will be stopped & reset so you don't have to wait for long current transitions! Thanks Lynk, Jinx, everyone!

- We optimized scaling of a whole thing during editing by not having it try to reposition!

- If your favorited area count allows, the area favorites teleport buttons are now spaced out more for quicker clicks & less misclicks!

- There's the new commands "send all to" and "send all onto"! It affects everyone in the area without the need for them to be nearby the thing. Also, all "send" commands are now sorted in their own group for easier use!

- You can now like/ star forum comments!

- There's a new script command: "... then all parts face nearest [thing name]"! Thanks Nic, Michael, Fazzi, everyone!

- By default, the two old particle-material buttons will not show anymore, as particles are now handled by the particles tab. They'll appear though if the thing you're editing used them, or if you fully page through the material buttons 5 times :)

- You can now grip-delete objects stuck on you!

- There are new transparent material variants, from very transparent to slightly transparent to more shiny and reflective ones! Thanks Nic & everyone!

- is now also allowed for pasting images onto shapes! It's an archive I made with over 400,000 covers of books, magazines, music albums, comics and more. As with Steam images, just copy the image URL (like ), then context-laser a thing part, and hit the Paste button at the bottom of the dialog.

- A new inventory button which appears when paging takes you back home to the inventory home page in one click! Thanks Fazzi, OP, Lynk, Jinx!

Thanks everyone for feedback & suggestions, and hope you enjoy!

Nearing Halloween news bulletin!

Hello everyone! Here's what's new recently, and thanks to all of your feedback & suggestions!

- For Halloween spooks & parties, check out the fantastic newly opened area Haunted Woods Trails by Delco & Jinx! Here's a behind the scenes gallery of how they created this area over the course of months:

- We have a fresh Steam image! Thanks everyone!

- There's a great new time machine hub with keys taking you to different locations at Time Keys, created by Graphics. Also, check out Axel's area Stretching Room.

- You can now paste Imgur and Steam screenshot & artwork urls into Anyland boards! Copy a URL similar to the following, and hit Ctrl+V while typing a comment:

- The backside of the main ring dialog now also includes today's date!

- You can now use the following placeholders in text: [year] [month] [day]!

- The following new thing "..." options are available: "Don't cast shadow" and "Don't receive shadow"! Thing parts also have the "Don't receive shadow" option now.

- You can now give Nifts!

- We fixed an issue where deleting a script line wouldn't properly immediately remove that functionality from the thing part while editing! Thanks Lynk & Jinx!

- We increased the maximum times you can rename an area from 2 to 4!

- We fixed multiple instances of dialog texts (like forum descriptions or area names) sometimes overlapping with buttons!

- You can now paste Steam screenshots & artworks onto every shape, not just the cube! There's also a new "Paste image" button at the bottom of the thing part dialog if your clipboard contains a Steam URL

- We've slightly optimized some sounds which might have been too loud, like the teleport laser. Thanks Jinx & Delco!

- Bullets now don't have to be made sticky to take effect on someone, like by using "Send one nearby"!

- The following body tell commands will now automatically arrive for you, usable with attachments or holdables (we also fixed issues with old auto-tell events not showing for others around): "When told by body someone was born", "When told by body ping received", and "When told by body ping sent"!

- When you picked a play sound command and add "with", there's now auto-completion help! Thanks Lynk!

- You can now change heads & bodies with the "change head" commands! Here's more info on how to have the head then auto-position itself & attach a full body:

- The friends dialog has been redesigned! Check out all the details here:

- If someone pinged you but you didn't immediately follow to their area, you can now still find more ping info logged in your friends list to go there later!

- We fixed issues with 12-hour type clocks at midnight and noon! Thanks Overvisor & Jinx!

- We fixed an issue where when placing snapping objects from the inventory, they'd sometimes be dropped in the wrong spot! Thanks Jinx & everyone!

- We've added a new dialog showing people currently in the area, and people you recently saw! Go to the Area "..." page, and click on the new people icon in the bottom right. Thanks Fazzi!

- Special areas which want to allow hide and seek games or similar can now use the script command "allow invisiblity", like "When someone new arrives then allow invisibility"... this will hide body spheres and name tags! For privacy reasons, a warning dialog will pop up if you enter such areas.

- We now have a clearer warning message when a required update restart is ahead, with more time given to prepare! Thanks Captain Spesey & Graphics!

- Thing parts can now be locked during editing, just click the new lock icon on their dialog! Locked parts cannot be touched or moved during editing (your hand will go right through them, also useful if you want to reach other parts inside them), they can't be accidentally painted on or changed by scripted commands, and they'll also guard against adding new states or pasting states into them.

- There are two new thing part "..." attributes: "Snap parts to this angle" and "Snap parts to this position"! Only one thing part at a time holds these attributes, and all other parts of the thing will then adjust themselves in relation to that part when moved. Thanks Axel & Kung!

- We fixed an issue where when consuming objects which are then destroyed, they'd sometimes linger on for others!

- Flag icons are now glowing (with a red label text) when active, this should help clarify that you can click them again to delete the report! Thanks Wiiplay!

- We optimized the display of body spheres! Now, body spheres will turn invisible in several contexts. For instance, you won't see the arm sphere if you have something attached there.

- Placed holdables are now merged to optimize graphics speed in the area (picking them up will retrieve the unmerged version as before)!

- Check out the Undertale speedbuild by Emily & Pigsty:

- There's a new creation attribute: "Replace instances in area (one-time)"! It's just like the existing "Replace instances in area", except the setting itself will not remain ticked for the saved version. Thanks Jinx!

- There's two new metallic material variants! Thanks GraphicsMonkey!

In other news, Anyland turned 1 year old! Congrats everyone, and see you in Anyland!
