I'm no expert builder, but I bought Zimberlab's mesh wall pack and have been playing with it for some time.

I'm working on the fourth prototype of this particular house, after learning more and more tools that help me make it perfect. I last learned about the align tool.

I've made a floor or two before calling it a day and I know that everything was lined up PERFECTLY.

I've found out that linking it causes it to screw up, so I've left it unlinked, and scooped it all up. This time when I rezzed it, pieces are STILL becoming unaligned. I see the edges of a straight wall that took multiple pieces and it's bugging the heck out of me. I can't keep fixing it and I rather not put it in a rez-box just yet. I don't even know if it will work like that. I could try for test #4. There's just so many mesh pieces I was hoping I wouldn't have to do that.

I've been in the same sandbox building it the whole time.

Any suggestions? Thanks. I haven't posted in forums before so I don't know if there's an answer out there.

Let me guess, some of the mesh modules are rotated 180 or 270 degrees, yes? Maybe the root even?

There's a rounding error in the way SL handles rotation of child prims in a linkset that causes that kind of problem. The solution is to link first and then correct the rotation of the misbehaving parts.

THAT is amazing. I never would have guessed the pieces were being SLIGHTLY rotated. Only the affected pieces, when selected, were 359.95 instead of 0. Wtf? When I put them back, it fixes my wall!! This helps so much!
