map-area copy tool - like copy and paste
« on: September 08, 2010, 06:19:14 PM »
The 'public service' map editing tool is great. I like it.

But, creating maps with cities, Buildings, factories, roads, tracks,...
takes it times. When it's finished and saved, a great game can start.
When I like to use parts of the created game/map in a new game or
only several times in the same map (e.g. Farm+Fields or Oldtown-Center)
I have to do it manually.

The tool :
  • select some fields (like the 'add forest' function)
  • ask user which mode (underground/normal/ only one level)
  • mark the selected objects and copy them to a clipboard
  • ask user for a place to paste
  • check the terrain height and shape
  • paste it at the new place

This copy function should work also between two running simutrans
games to use parts from a savegame.
