Update 29.1

Planetscaping now has an eyedropper tool to sample the surface of an object to make creating (or flooding) land even smoother. We’ve also improved fragmentation during collisions, among other things.

Fragmentation

We’ve updated how we determine the number of fragments during collisions. This allows fragments to last longer in simulations with numerous collisions and makes collisions more consistent across different simulation speeds.

Planetscaping Eyedropper

There’s now an eyedropper in the Planetscaping tool so you can easily sample and set the Depth, Temperature, and Pressure to match those of the object you are Planetscaping.

More Highlights
  • Surface Lock is now a manual toggle, but turns on automatically when you are using the Planetscaping or Laser Tools
