I am seriously missing having my avatar in build mode (too many years free form building in SL) - as a point of reference and also for checking out the 'user experience' of what I am building. Please put us first person in build mode, or give us the option.
I realize I could just upload a reference dummy, but it still is not the same as *being there* - at least not for me.
I am not asking for VR mode - might be cool someday when the tech catches up but just being able to stand in the scene would go a long way. Having to continuously go build and visit is time consuming and a pita.
