Working with collections (grouped objects)

collection is a group of objects that has been saved into your inventory as a single inventory item to be either sold in the Sansar Store or placed back into a scene in the same relative orientation the objects were saved in.

Creating a collection

You can create a collection by selecting multiple objects in your scene and then saving them to your inventory:

  1. Select multiple objects in your scene by holding Ctrl and clicking them, either directly in the scene or in the Scene Objects panel.
  2. Right-click one of the selected objects, either directly in the scene or in the Scene Objects panel, and choose Save to inventory.
  3. Choose an appropriate name for the collection, then click Ok.
  4. The collection appears in your inventory as a single item with a distinctive icon indicating that it is a collection.

To save a selected group of objects to your inventory as a collection, right-click one of the selected objects and choose Save to inventory. Collections in your inventory have a distinctive icon to differentiate them from single objects.

Using a collection in a scene

To put a collection into your scene, simply drag it into the scene as you would with a regular object. The objects from the collection appear in the same orientation in which they were saved, and are grouped into a new folder in the Scene Objects panel. Once in the scene, the objects may be moved and edited individually.

Selling collections in the Sansar Store

Collections may be sold in the Sansar Store exactly the same way that individual items are sold. Licensing and buyer permissions still apply to all objects in the collection. For information on how to sell items, see Selling items in the Sansar Store.
