Suggestions and problems about the map editor.

Post by Quxzcover » Mon Nov 02, 2015 3:13 am

Ive been playing around with the map editor and ive run into problems and features that could use quite a bit of revamp.

1) The Crashes.
The Editor crashes whenever you select too big of a radius for the paint or spray tool. usually happens at 200 or over.This might just be my computer but i doubt it. (probably belongs in the reporting bugs section.)

*2) The ability to be able to adjust the width and height of the spray tool independently.
So instead of having to adjust the hight and width of your spray to 4x4 or 2x2 you can do things like 4x8. makes making rows of ores less tedious.

3) The placing of entities.
Anything bigger than 1x1 is annoying to place. i think it would be better to be able to place things like you do in the actual game so making custom maps or being able to plan ahead is done much faster and easier. instead of having the placement of things on the single dropper tool right click and the removal on spray right click just have it left click for both and right click a universal removal button.

4) being able to edit already existing maps.
Being able to edit maps i have already started playing on. pretty simple idea but needed.

these are justs a few things i could list off the top of my head and i hope some of these are implemented. please leave you own ideas in the comment section.

Reason: Deleted the poll, cause it makes no sense to choose, which to be fixed first; that is alone the task of developers.

I deleted the poll (one vote only till here), cause it makes no sense for us players, to decide in which order bugs or ugly behavior needs to be fixed.
A poll don't needs a reason, it is just to decide between some options. But when we are speaking from the map-editor we don't have not only these 4 options, there are many more...

Which doesn't mean, that it should not be discussed. But in a discussion I also want to read the reason for an opinion.
Cool suggestion: Eatable MOUSE-pointers.
