    I'd just like to say thanks to the Eleon devs for adding the symmetry functionality to the paint/texture tools. I didn't expect to see that anytime soon and you went and did it and didn't even wait for 7.0 to release it. Love the quick fix you did too. Working great! It is fan-freaking-tastic! This is going to save me so much time. Much appreciated.

    Could we maybe get some more textures next? :D

    "- Added possibility to enable/disable the "auto-brake" of vessels. You can toggle the auto-break on/off with the default key "i" (key can be re-mapped)"

    Thank you!!

    I immediately swapped the shortcut key on this with the other new function, hiding the tool bar....

    as a guy that likes to build, and is more of a pirate than a fighter, and really bad at twitch games, makes good sense to me ;)

    So I can't seem to get any of the symmetry options to work. It should be pretty self-explanatory in game (considering I have a lot of hours in SE, Starmade and the like - I think I get the general concept) but it isn't.

    Equip a block in your toolbar. Now hold down the N key & select which plane you wish to use & then with the N key still held down aim & left click where you want it to be.

    Yeah, that hasn't worked, and there isn't any kind of visual feedback either - like both of the other games I mentioned have pretty much the same thing, you get a red/blue/green overlay. Guessing that there was no overlay I did try the various toggles and tried placing some steel blocks and nada. This was latest experimental build yesterday even.

    I know it works because I'm using it as I type this.
    Have a quick watch of this from liftpizza's older video from 06:08

    Ahhh...I wasn't holding it down and clicking, I was going into the menu, selecting XZwhatever, closing the menu out and then clicking.
    Not exactly intuitive. I shouldn't need to watch a video to figure out how a game feature works, but other than that little detail, yes, it works as I would expect it to. Thanks!

    If the blocks themselves are not exactly mirrored that you are working with, the results can be a bit odd.

    Its a great start though!
