Trenches and Embankments (Dragging slope tools)
« on: January 29, 2012, 11:17:10 AM »
I miss the possibility of dragging raise- and lower-slope tools to create embankments and trenches faster... Would it be doable?

This post can be split to different extension request, in order to move the thread to tips & tricks board...

I think that this is already possible, isn't it...?

It's possible for "raise land" and "lower land", but not for "build artificial slopes" -- which I suppose is what you'd want to build a 'trench'.

Precisely! Raise/lower uses too many tiles and look like hills/depressions, slope tools look better IMHO for trenches and embankments.
