Hi guys!

I make 2x2 and 3x3 large facilities. But the problem is in game can not work the walls (when builded next to the othe building, the wall can not disappear), so tis need doors, but it not looks good. So its needed to cut 1x1 pieces, but its uncomfortable..  how to cut easier?

Thank you!

Base facilities can only be 1x1.
We must live with it.

What do you mean by "how"?

Make 9 copies and modify each to remove the unwanted parts... Or do you mean something else?

Its terrible.. i think have some option i can automaticly cut 9 pieces.. now can only copy and paste many times, because can not copy 2 levels just 1. and counting the 10 from left and upper corner..

Eh, it's 5 minutes of copy-paste.
If routes are involved, then it's much worse, as you have to do it anew for every map block.

the code is opensource

/go nutz, it'd take a lot longer than 5 min to implement ...

( for me at least )
