Hi Guys.

Is there any way to reset the height of an area of the map back to the original or at least make a small area completely flat? If there is not now, could it be something that might be put into a future editor?

So an explanation of my issue - when I decide to make a mountain or a valley I choose the height tool and begin to make the adjustments to the area. I get it almost perfect but when I try to play the map, there are only flags on the side of the slope. I need at least a small red building so that I can expand my area. Even if I do have a red building, if the flags are really close together because the ground is steep I can't reach the building site.

If I could just select a small portion of the map and choose to reset it so that it is flat I would be able to have my building site. I know we can use the shift key to reverse the tool but I am an old guy and maybe I do not have the same amount of skill as many who can get the result they need easily.

Sorry to be a pain face-smile.png

Perhaps I could find someone who would be willing to help me fix my maps when I can't get them the way they need to be. Any volunteers?

You can use the CTRL (STRG) key to set the height to the value of "Set height to". The mouse pointer changes to have two vertical arrows then. A new map has a default height of 10.

Thank you so much for your speedy and extremely helpfull reply, kaputtnik :-).

That is exactly the solution to my problem. (Breathes deep sigh of relief)

I am almost finished my next map. I just have to play it through one more time to be certain I do not want to add anything else.

Thank you all once again for developing such an awseome game.
