copy and paste between maps is a great time saver but no there is no way to rotate a part.

Diuring the fixing of community ufos I ipotized to join an UFO class 110 over a UFO class 120
but they have a different orientation.
These two ufo are new both, but they appear  so much similar on others that as is is useless add them to pack)

Rotating part of maps is it a feature usefull in other scenarious ?

It could be a my future task after complete those already opened, that are
-convert terrain PCK of TFTD and
-complete UFO community pack [I am studing about it  ;) ]

bye

You'll need to redesign the map if you want to rotate it. I did that with Mad City terrain where I manually redesigned each of the Terror Site's map blocks so that they would be facing the 4 possible directions.

Sounds like fun, but the worst part i think it would be rotating doors and walls cuz at least on "MapView" there are only 2 walls insteed of 4 per tile, so some items could be lost in the rotation, plus it would need a mapping of the tiles (Left door, Right door)
