From the FAQ:

How do I make sloped "roofs" like those in house?
Note, this refers to sloped geometry in general

A1: Hold the middle mouse button (or third), and selected the vertices (point were 2 or more edges meet) you wish to edit, and scroll up/down to deform the cube
A2: Select 1 or more cubes, and hold in Q. Scroll while hovering over a vertice to deform that specific vertice in the whole selection
A3: select 1 or more cubes, and hold F. Scroll the wheel to deform the whole face (collection of 3 or 4 vertices, note computers are limited to triangles and quadrilaterals, a circle for example is a series of triangles).

Take care :)

That's shouldn't be to difficult of a question to answer. Let me lay it out to you straight: All you have to do is go is go into the game (whichever you please), select the side you want to bend the corner of (the white selector color means that you've selected that side. Blue is not select the side, but the geometry), then, while holding q, (and hopefully your mouse has a wheel, because you'll need it...badly! I'M SERIOUS!) use your mouse wheel to scroll towards yourself to change the vertice (please note that you must point, with your mouse, which vertice you wish to change). It will start to go inwards if you scroll towards yourself, but if you scroll away from yourself, it will go back the regular shape.

I hope that helps. If you have any questions, regarding what I've just explained (or anything else), please ask. ;)

Hi,

I'm new here but I just wanted to dangle an idea around about editing the game world, which seemed relevant to this topic. It's really too bad they can't design a way to use shapes to do this type of thing. like legos stuck together, there should be a way to design even something approximating an editing sphere with cubes.... you can do it with legos!

of course, the preferable way, for me anyhow, would be to paint it on the scene, like a canvas. :D the engine's smart enough to recognize a straight line. heck if they could interface a graphics engine with a paint program, game designing would be amazingly fun for artists. still not sure why they haven't. of course we know the paint program is 2d, but we also know we can paint all four faces of an object in a paint program, add textures, even bump map.

sigh, can dream anyway........

Just use blendmap, especially in the SVN version :) Here is an example:
Hirato's village before:

Hirato's village after:
http://www.moddb.com/games/platinum-art ... ore-after1

:D In 2.3 it looks kind of rough, but you use P with one of those textures that has a small texture in the lower corner. It is much more refined in our new version coming out. Take care.
