Moving and Rotating Map Geometry

Postby DreamBliss » December 29th, 2012, 7:17 am

OK so I know how to copy paste. Holding R while using the mouse wheel rotates in 90 degree segments. Now how do I move map geometry around? How do I rotate in finer segments, like say 15 degrees? Also how in the heck do I use the mirror option? I press X and push the mouse wheel, my geometry just disappears :( How do I properly use Mirroring?

Go ahead and give me default mouse/keyboard controls. I got a mouse and keyboard for Christmas.

UPDATE: Change 45 degree to 90 degree. I still can't get flip to work right...

You can rotate the map geometry only in steps of 45°.
How the selection is rotated, depends on the selected side.
I didn't know there exist an additional mirror function. You simply can rotate things, to mirror them.

last I checked, the flip keybind was changed from x to ctrl+x, if that doesn't work than you can select the geometry, select the axis to flip along, and use /flip in the console to get it done.

OK, thank you. I take it moving geometry is not allowed?

You can simply copy&paste a selection with C and V.

X is bound to the moving operation, thing is, it's not working right when bound to X :(
This is not a url, clicking it is pointless

I'm afraid Shift+R+Scroll Mouse Wheel does not allow finer rotations. Also no matter what I type after rotate in the console I still end up only rotating in 90 degree increments.

Moving geometry should work, because it does in Red Eclipse. For that game they press and hold U to move things around. But U is assigned to undo in Sandbox. This makes no sense as Z is already undo.

Someone is screwing up the controls here. I would humbly advise that the Sandbox editing controls remain similar to Cube 2/Red Eclipse where the actions in the editing mode is the same. Why cause confusion? Where things may be different assign unique controls.

I'll look into assigning U to Move, spend some time in the configuration files. Maybe install Red Eclipse and see if I can apply what they use.

I'll be back with an update -
