Is there a pictorial list of the objects listed anyplace in regards to buildings listed in Full Mission Builder. Its a real pain to have to click on each item to see what it is as the names of the objects are just numbers.

Several documents available at M4T:

http://www.mission4today.com/i...name=Downloads&c=516 (http://www.mission4today.com/index.php?name=Downloads&c=516)

I've used Porsimo's PDFs, 5th down, as well as rxman's 4.08 list in .doc format, 8th down.

Haven't found updated lists anywhere, for the newest modded games.

A trick I use is to open the "View Object" window, then position the mouse cursor over the second bar, where "Object #X" is displayed. I can then use the mouse wheel to super-quickly skim through the objects. This has the advantage that it allows you to see pictures of the objects as you're scanning through them.

Oh yeah thats a pain in the butt alright without a photographic list.
Just incase; in M4T if you have trouble downloading stuff, you have to register or log in.

Oh My God.
I didn't know you could do that.
I just tried it.
Holy Cheeze whiz.
WTF, all this time, I never knew...
That's awesome.

Excuse me while I do a face palm.

I have been using a photo list outside of the game. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_eek.gif

You're excused! It took me quite a while to find that gem, myself.

Here's another that I was told of/rediscovered (I believe this was rfxcasey who told me):

If you press and hold the ALT button then click right mouse button and drag the box around multiple objects, you can select those multiple objects simultaneously. You can then right mouse click and copy them, then move where you want another of the same set, right click again and paste. Works great for setting up multiple AA sites, for example. Make one position (sandbags, people, guns and all), make copies until you've set up the larger site, then copy the entire site and copy/paste someplace else. Saves a bunch of time. Unfortunately, I have yet to learn how to get multiple selected objects to rotate together, so if I make an origional site facing east, all my copies face east, too. I've tried the keypad to rotate multiple selected units, which I use to rotate singular objects, but it rotates around a central point or something, and gets it all out of sync. Grumble.

***EDIT***

Ooh, Ooh, Ooh! My Turn! *Facepalm*!!

Okay, so apparently, there's this nice little submenu under the "EDIT" menu that says "Rotate_Objects". Select it, and guess what it does? Yep, rotates objects! Wow, what a concept. (Sigh...) So, if you select this first, then use the multiple selection, and then the keypad rotation, it'll rotate them all simultaneously.

Good to know stuff for sure. It will be used.
