Minor change to the way WrapperDealer instantiates wrappers it's dealing with.
Oops: Multiple spaces need to be collapsed when parsing RCOLResource.txt.
New SlotAdjust/"BOND" RCOL Chunk handler.

RavenShadow (and anyone else), could you please hammer the VPXY editor :). A lot of those library changes were to fix the problems in it.

In the container slot part of the RSLT, x rot1, y rot2, and z rot3 affect the scale of an object placed in the slot.
Didn't know if you knew that already...

No we thought they were rotation

An object could--change size--depending on how the target-surface's RSLT slot is setup? :wtf:
Maybe someone could use that to make a slot for a surface object that will act as either an 'enlarger' or 'shrinker' for objects placed on it. :rofl:
--namely the current usage of: x rot1, y rot2, and z rot3

ok, let's be very careful not make assumptions, like I did :)
If EA is following the rules on transform matrices, even if only to a degree,
Then the matrices maybe multi-purpose, meaning that the combination of values used tells the game what to do with it.
Right off the top of my mind , cribs use x3 = 1, y2 = 1, z3 = -1, to rotate an infant 90 degrees counter-clockwise in the crib.
All sofas, couches, livving room chairs, dinning room chairs and to a leeser degree lounge chairs have 3 routing slots for each
sim slot, 2 of these are at a 45 degree angle to the slot and thus use number similar to :
all to get a sim to turn +/-45 degrees before interacting with that slot or its occupant.
If they are following the rules, then the following would be used to indicate what kind of matrix it is on a slot by slot bases:
1 0 0
0 1 0
0 0 1
Identity Matrix.make no changes
1 0 0
0 ? ?
0 ? ?
Rotation Matrix. X-Axis Rotation
? 0 ?
0 1 0
? 0 ?
Rotation Matrix. Y-Axis Rotation
? ? 0
? ? 0
0 0 1
Rotation Matrix. Z-Axis Rotation
? 0 0
0 ? 0
0 0 ?
Is a Scale Matrix only if it 1 or more ? are not equal to 1 or -1.
a Value of -1 should usually mean the same as a value of 1 except that Axis is mirrored.
In all cases ? should be a value between 0.00 & 1.00
only continued experimentation will help us figure out
what craziness they actually are.

I'm continuing this in the modding forum (http://www.modthesims.info/showthread.php?p=3147925&posted=1#post3147925) so we don't get yelled at for being off topic
for this forum :)
