Map Editor Suggestions

Post by ssilk »

Ideas around the map editor.

Not much to say here. The map editor is a bit unloved and is not used very often.
It is unclear why, cause some reasons are thinkable:
- It's not used, cause it is still a very basic tool.
- It's not used, cause not needed.
- It'd not used, cause the maps are edited in the game.

Another reason, why the map editor is not used very often is, that the maps are so much bigger! Compared to the game OpenTTD one can say (more or less), that Factorio maps are about 50 times bigger. Or better: They have 50 time more resolution. Which means 50 times more stuff, you need to edit. Which means in general: When you need an hour to create a more or less fine OpenTTD-map you need (not 50 hours, but) much, much more time for a good Factorio-map.

I think this is also the reason, why the World-Generator is much more important, than in other similar games. So please look into

Nevertheless: Something like an editor is needed. :)
