Katia Builder Toolkit

A toolkit designed to speed things up (and fix various Carbine bugs) for Housing builders!

To start, enter /katia.


Short demo and tutorial video:

(This video is waaay out of date.  Although everything in it works, KBT does so much more now, I will hopefully make a new video some time soon).


This tool supports:

- Paste multiple times per copy

- Save copies to multiple slots, which persist when you go to different plots

- A 'clone' function which pastes directly from the crate or vendor

- Crating a whole linked set at once

- A 'diff' function which lets you save a set of changes between two copies and apply those changes over and over to another object

- An 'average' function which lets you place an object exactly between two other objects (also averages rotation and size)

- A set manager tool that lets you save decor constructions or entire plots and recreate them multiple times or on other plots (even after relogging), as well as share sets with other users!

- A /visit <plotname> command line function to visit anybody by name.

- Tools for automatic creation of linked decor

- A more compact replacement to the in-game advanced controls

- A plot finder tool that helps you find public plots if you only remember part of the player or plot name.

- A decor shopping tool that lets you search and browse decor models then find the decor you want on the Jabbithole website or auction house.

- A /kget or /ksummon command that can quickly fetch decor from crate or vendor for easy placement.  Takes a list of namepieces to look for (i.e. "/kget med hoog" to find a "Medium Green Hoogle Statue")

- /kfind followed by search terms will pop up a list of all matching decor on your plot and help you quickly find them.  The first term can optionally be a range from your character to search.  For example, /kfind 15 ruby thin  will find all The Ruby-Eyed Thinker within 15m of you.  All found decor can be linked at once.

- /kfindplot followed by search terms will pop up a list of all matching public plots.  The first term can optionally be a number of scan attempts to help the search, default is 100.

- Reconstruct lost decor from placing fabkits or changing houses by running /ksnapshot first and /kreconstruct after.


Has several slash commands you can use to macro actions for faster building:

/kcopy, /kpaste, /kclone, /kplace, /kcrate, /kcratelink (crate an item and everything linked to it), /kdiff, /kaverage, /ktarget, /kltt (link selected item to targeted item), /visit, /ksummon (type along with an item name to summon an item directly from crate or vendor above your character's head for quick placement)


And slash commands for set management:

/kadd, /kaddall, /kaddlinkedset, /kaudit, /kremove, /kreloc, /kplaceall, /kplacealllink (place and create a linked set), /kclear


And fixes the following bugs:

- The bug that interferes with interactable chairs and doors.  Clicking 'fix chairs' will fix all of them (until you log).

- The bug that causes a decor to crash your client when selected.  Clicking 'fix links' will fix all of these.

- The bug that causes decor to slowly rotate as you move them (passive fix).

- The bug that prevents you from deleting decor form your crate (passive fix).

- The bug that prevents you from searching your crate (passive fix).

- The bug that causes some decor to be unselectable.  Clicking 'fix ghosts' will remove these.

- Slash commands for bug fixing: /kfixlinks, /kfixchairs, /kfixghosts, /krevertskyiunderstandtherisk (returns the original sky that is not listed in the in-game UI, use this at your own risk)


And various quality-of-life for AH and CX:

- No more page resets when you bid or buy

- No more limits on CX and AH search results (large searches on AH can cause delays)


Many more features are incoming from a list my many beta testers have given me.  A big thanks is owed to all of them!


If you like this addon, there is an in-game plat donation button in the tools menu <3  (only works on Entity and Jabbit).

Version 1.3 update


- Fixed various bugs that caused problems in combination with DecorSetManager, and improves the reliability of the "Clone" function.

- The "Clone" function now no longer automatically places the new object, giving you a chance to make modifications before you place it.

- There is now a context-sensitive "Place" button that will finalize whatever you are doing with the current selected object (buy from the vendor, place from crate, etc.)

- There is now a "Target" button that will remember the selected object.  While it is remembered, any use of the "Diff" or "Average" functions will work on this object instead of whatever you have selected.  You can click it again to forget it.

- There are now slash commands for most of the functions that you can macro and hotkey, /kcopy <slot>, /kpaste <slot>, /kclone <slot>, /kdiff <fromslot> <toslot>, /kaverage <fromslot> <toslot>, /ktarget, /kdeshift, /kfixchairs

- The macro commands use the selected slots from the UI if left blank.


Additionally, I have added a function to restore the original sky which many builders have been missing.  (The original sky is different from "default sky", and in-game there is no way to get the original sky back once you change it.  Many prefer it over "default" because it has a different moon, and shows Nexus below you whereas default does not).


I want to point out, that this does not "legitimately" restore the original sky.  It is instead using a bug to "trick" the client into loading the original sky.  I am 99% sure it is safe, and you can always undo it by going back to any of the other skies.  However, since it is technically using a bug, I want to make sure everybody understands the risks.  Activate it by using /krevertskyiunderstandtherisk, which shows that you have read this disclaimer.
