OK all, I do love what Spritecraft has done and I am sure you do too but I think I have an alternate program to use and it does seem to be way more up to date. I am yet to use it but it does look promising. I'm not sure if I am allowed to mention another program on a similar program's thread so I might avoid that but I just wanted to let you guys know there is something for those who did want more options with your creations
That looks like a cool tool! We are still updating Spritecraft, and in fact just updated today! Support for a lot of new block is in, although the block UI is getting a little out of control at this point.
Also you can change the axis by switch the "top view" or "side view" option in the Options menu. The "top view" option will lay it horizontally while the "side view" option will make it vertical.
