Importing structures from another author

Post by suga » 28 Dec 2020, 08:47

Hi, that would be very nice if we could import a structure of a map from another guy, to build a new map.
Even a guy making a map wanting to import his work on a previous map he made.

Giving this idea and wishing to have a tool to transforme tm2 maps in tmnf.

thx ;)

To reuse parts of a map, this is partially possible using the macro block selection tool.
Obviously you need to be able to edit the map (no password protection).

Converting TM² maps into TMNF maps is not possible due to the newer blocks TM² Stadium has.

The games gives so many possibilities, you should create new stuff instead of copying existing things ;)

Might be worth asking the map author for permission before doing something like this though. :D

(A little off topic, but consider using singular they instead of he/him pronouns if you're not talking about any specific person. It's both more inclusive and grammatically more correct! :thumbsup:)

But can we take a map structure to another ? or is it only possible with the working map (the map in work process) ?

thx !

This only works in the editor mode. You can select a set of blocks and save them as macroblock.
But i don't know if it gets persisted into a file which you could transfer to a friend's PC so he can use it.
I guess you need to try on your own.
