Storm Map Editor - Hidden blocks list

Post by PapyChampy » 29 Jul 2013, 16:44

Hey. Here is a guide that could help some map builders.
I'll try to list the hidden blocks/combinations in the map editor, which appear when you combine 2 specific blocks correctly. I'll use X-X-X in order to determine which blocks to use. Maybe I'll add screenshots later if needed.

- Terraforming

Maybe the most obvious one.

You can combine Terraforming 1, 2 and 3 together to create small hills and transitions between terraforming levels. You can also combine Terraforming 3 and 4 : Hills on water.
Combine terraforming 4 and 5 for shallow water/deep water.

- Blocks

2-4-3 : can be combined with 6-7-X and 7-7-X to create a bumper roof for the cave area.

2-5-2 : can be combined with 4-1-1, 4-1-3, 5-1-5, 5-3-X except 5-3-5, 5-4-3, 5-5-1, 5-5-3, 5-6-3

2-5-3 : can be combined with 5-1-3, 5-1-4, 5-1-6, 5-1-7

2-5-4 : can be combined with 3-1-1, 3-3-2, 4-1-1, 5-3-1, 5-5-1, 8-3-1

2-5-5 : can be combined with 4-1-1, 5-3-1, 5-5-1, 8-3-1

2-5-6 : can be combined with 2-5-5, 4-1-1, 4-1-3, 4-2-1, 5-5-1, 5-8-6, 6-1-1, 8-2-1, 8-2-2, 8-2-3, 8-2-4, 8-2-7, 9-1-5, 9-2-4, 9-2-5, 9-3-5, 9-4-4, 9-4-5

2-5-7 : can be combined with 4-1-1, 6-1-1, 8-2-1

3-1-1 and 3-1-6 : can be combined with 4-1-1, 4-1-3

3-2-1 and 3-2-2 : can be combined with 4-1-1, 4-1-3

3-3-1 : same behaviour as 2-5-4

3-3-4 => 3-3-10 : can be combined with 3-3-3, 4-1-1, 4-4-1

4-4-1 : 2-5-7 : can be combined with 4-1-1, 6-1-1, 8-2-1

3-1-1 and 3-1-6 : can be combined with 4-1-1, 4-1-3

3-2-1 and 3-2-2 : can be combined with 4-1-1, 4-1-3

3-3-1 : same behaviour as 2-5-4

3-3-4 => 3-3-10 : can be combined with 3-3-3, 4-1-1, 4-4-1

4-1-1 : can be combined with most castle blocks and techno blocks

4-2-4 : can be combined with 4-1-1, 4-1-3, 8-3-1

4-4-1, 4-4-6, 4-4-7, 4-4-8 : same behaviour as 2-5-6

4-4-X : can be combined with 5-8-X (Lights)

5-1-2 : can be combined with 4-4-1, 5-1-3, 5-1-4, 5-1-6, 5-1-7, 6-1-1

5-1-3, 5-1-4 : same behaviour as 2-5-2 + 6-1-1

5-8-X : can be combined with blocks with the same shape (lights) : 3-1-X, 4-1-X, 4-4-X

6-1-1 : can be combined with some castle and techno blocks

8-2-X : can be combined with 4-4-1, 4-4-8, 9-2-3, 9-4-3

8-3-1 : can be combined with 8-3-X, 8-4-X, and castle blocks listed previously

9-1-3, 9-1-4,1 9-1-5,9-1-6 : can be combined with 3-1-X, 3-3-X and 4-1-X

9-2-5 : same behaviour as 2-5-5

9-3-3, etc : same behaviour as white blocks (9-1-3, etc)

9-4-5 : same behaviour as 2-5-5

10-6 : allows to place HD textures and the terraforming.

-Terraforming + blocks

You can usually place blocks on the edge of the terraforming when using a "straight" variant of the block. ( 4-1-1 or 4-4-1 for example. Some techno blocks will be added in the future for this : 5-1-1 and 5-1-2. )


Please let me know if I forgot something that I'm not aware of.

Have fun building !

Really big thanks for creating such a nice list!
It will definitely help map-editor-beginner. Even 'experts' will discover some new cool possibilities! ;)

I am working on a list, where I suggest new block-combinations e.g. 3-1-1 on 4-1-3 but in every direction.

Anyway, good job and thanks for your effort!

This should be 2-4-3 : can be combined with 7-6-X and 7-7-X

Nice list :thumbsup:

Ty for the list, I might try out some of them, when I find some time.

I haven't noticed it until now, but 3-1-1 gets a new texture when placed at the edge of water.

It looks interesting but you can clearly see that there is no transition from that texture to the normal texture.
Is there a way to get the 'normal' texture for the blocks on the edge or the 'other' texture for any other block?

Yeah, I noticed it a while ago, it it indeed the wrong texture. Already reported.

And thx Killa for the awesome screens, very informative. =)
