Map Flatten
« on: July 31, 2013, 09:21:04 PM »
I dunno how many other people have played Stronghold, but one feature I love in that game is the ability to flatten the map by hitting the space bar. All walls and other large items are immediately flattened with only filled tiles indicating where they are, making it a lot easier to see and manage objects that are in awkward positions.

For example, if I build a 3-tile wide corridor north-west to south east, then one side of the corridor is facing toward me, and the other is facing away. The side facing toward me is easy to position benches, radiators etc. onto, but the other side of the corridor is very hard to see; you can usually just guess or try putting something down to see if a tile is already occupied, but by "flattening" the map it would be a lot easier.

We have an invisible walls feature, press x to toggle on or off.  At the moment this is available in debug mode only, but that could change soon.
