Housing Icons


And now, some housing icons to indicate which tool you're currently using!
...Cause there are quite a few tools, actually. First up, the carpet tool:


This tool is used to edit the size of the carpets. You'll be able to change the size of many of our carpets freely, and this icon will help indicate what you're currently doing. The upper version is Fred's basic version, but we'll also make one featuring the carpet design beneath to see which one we like the best. 


Next up, the move tool, which is rather straight forward:

Select a piece of furniture with the hand tool, and move it around to wherever you wanna put it. We'll probably add some kind of animation to the arrows, as most of the tool indicators will be animated in some basic way (much like the carpet tool) 

Next, the stack tool:


This "tool" appears when you try to select a square that has multiple objects stacked on it, and helps you select which parts of it you want to edit or move. Do you only want to select the top object, the topmost two or the whole stack?

Below's a test animation I did to make the indicator easier to understand, and beneath it is Fred's finished version:



Finally, the style tool, which allows you to change the basic appearance of an object. This is indicated by a painter's brush and palette. The first version had a rather  crude version of the brush, so it was quickly changed:


And beneath we have the full lineup:
