In the NMS Beyond release patch notes they mention “Scaling” and “Rotation on more than one axis” for “Some” building parts.
I believe that with the latest 8/30 experimental build, some of this is finally working as far as the rotation part goes. Scaling, so far, seems to be limited to only the decals, as far as I can tell.
If anyone has found any new building mechanics, capabilities, or glitch building, please share it here.
Also, if anyone hears or sees anything regarding the old Infrastructure parts that came with the Foundation Update (the Walls, Curved Walls, Linking Posts, etc) that now seem to be gone for good, please post here. I can see those old parts in the Save Editor, but they don’t show up in the game, even after “adding” everything with the Save editor and playing in Creative.
