Release Notes

1.0.0 (2022-12-05)

This is the official 1.0.0 release of RoomBox for SketchUp 🎉

1.0.0-beta7 (2022-12-02)

Changes
  • Added an animation to the Custom maps tab to illustrate how it works.
  • Show “X rooms selected” in the editor instead of all the room names when several rooms are selected.
Bugfixes
  • Fixed alpha maps not working.
  • Fixed some tooltips preventing from clicking buttons that they cover.

1.0.0-beta6 (2022-11-30)

Changes
  • Added an icon to free/purchased rooms in the library to better distinguish them from rooms that are available for purchase.
Bugfixes
  • Fixed the box selection not working accurately in some cases.
  • Fixed an error that occurred when deleting rooms being currently selected.
  • Fixed an error that occurred when loading custom maps with unicode characters in their name.
  • Fixed an error that sometimes occurred when loading custom PNG maps.
  • Fixed an error that occurred when opening a new model after using RoomBox.

1.0.0-beta5 (2022-11-25)

Features
  • It is now possible to create rooms anywhere, even if the creation tool is not touching an existing surface.
  • Added an option to pick a separate resolution for the room shown in SketchUp’s viewport (previously, a low-resolution version of the room map was always used). This is especially useful with renderers that do not support proxy maps, such as Enscape. However, please note that this increases the size of the model.
  • Added more information in the pack section: price and room count.
Changes
  • Changed the preview when creating rooms from a single purple rectangle showing the front window to a full box showing the future room’s volume.
  • Changed the icons in the RoomBox toolbar.
  • Thea: lower the lighting intensity to produce better-looking renders.
Bugfixes
  • Fixed the “Assign to selection” command not copying the sprites’ enabled/disabled option, which could produce unexpected results depending on the selected room type.
  • Fixed the room names not updating when assigning a different room type.
  • Fixed the room order changing in the library in each session.
  • Fixed packs sometimes being mixed up in the purchase interface.
  • Fixed the “Delete” button for custom maps sometimes being invisible.
  • Fixed the toolbar buttons being disabled when a window is already opened/a tool is already active. Now, they can also be clicked in that case, which focuses the window/goes back to the previous tool.
  • Fixed the room editor not opening when selecting rooms.
  • Fixed some rooms appearing blurry in the room editor’s thumbnail.
  • Fixed the position of room sprites not updating in real-time when changing it from the editor.

1.0.0-beta4 (2022-11-03)

Changes
  • The purchase interface now shows all the packs that contain the clicked room.
  • A new button in the RoomBox toolbar explictly activates the room selection tool (previously, the tool was only activated automatically when clicking in the room editor).
  • The room library window now shows in its title when the Pro version is unlocked.
Bugfixes
  • Fixed the selection tool not showing the outlines of hovered rooms anymore.
  • Fixed the selection tool “box selection” not working in some cases.
  • Fixed the “Update available” overlay showing Feature/Changes/Bugfixes categories even if they contain no entries.
  • Fixed rooms sometimes showing light bleeding artifacts at their corners when rendered.

1.0.0-beta3 (2022-10-21)

Changes

  • Fixed errors occurring when the download directory has been deleted.
  • Fixed the layout of the room library being broken in older versions of SketchUp (there was no spacing between rooms).
  • Fixed the library toolbar sometimes not responding after typing search terms.
