NOTE 1: Use the COMMA or PERIOD keys to rotate the object. Some large (for example, multi-tile) objects may not visually appear correct at 45 degree angles. This should not be used on windows or doors, as they will already snap to diagonal walls. There is no guarantee that Sims can interact with all objects that are at this orientation, but most should work. Use this with the boolProp snapObjectsToGrid code.
