Have you ever dreamed about building multiple foundations in a few seconds? Now with Smart Foundations you actually can!

How to use: Just start building and if you want a long foundation hold 'LEFT SHIFT' and then scroll your mouse wheel.
If you want to make them wider: hold 'LEFT ALT' and your mouse wheel.
While 'SHIFT' or 'ALT' are pressed - the foundation will not rotate or move.
Alternative way: use arrow keys instead of Shift or Alt
Hold 'U' and scroll your mouse to step up or down
Hold 'T' and scroll your mouse to twirl(offset) left or right.
Hold 'E' and scroll your mouse to elevate the whole thing up in the sky.
Press 'H' to turn on HOLD mode that will allow you to run/fly around making sure that everything fits perfectly. This also turns on automatically when you do some other action. Press 'H' again to turn HOLD mode off.

Here is why Smart Foundations are awesome:
