[Plugin] Symmetry - Build Royal & Battle maps faster

Hello everyone :)

Here is a new plugin called "Symmetry". It was made especially for Battle and Royal maps. All you need is to create a part of your map and the other part(s) of the map will be automatically synchronized each time you place a new block.

This idea came to me from another game that have a similar tool. A plugin like this already exists but isn't up to date anymore. See Auto Symmetry by CroissantNinja

At the bottom (Red rectangular) : Icon & checkbox for enabling, disabling the plugin / the panel


Features
  • 4 symmetry modes : (Half reflection, Quarter reflection, Half rotation, Quarter rotation)
  • Ability to choose the size of the map : Odd / Even X and Z Size map
  • All ShootMania blocs supported
  • Terraforming is, of course, supported
  • Air mapping supported
What's the difference between Reflection & Rotation

How to install ?
Place the script Symmetry.Script.txt in the folder :
C:\Users\<Username>\Documents\ManiaPlanet\Scripts\EditorPlugins\ShootMania

Symmetry is still limited
Unfortunately, Symmetry is too limited. There are many functionnality missing in ManiaScript so I can't support everything.
- Items (Yellow and Blue crystals) are not supported (Missing functionnality in ManiaScript)
- Macroblocks are not supported (Impossible)
- OffZone is not supported (Missing functionnality in ManiaScript)
- GhostBlocks are not supported (Functionnality doesn't work properly)

I'm sorry to deliver a half-finished plugin but I can't do more at the moment. Hopefully this plugin will be helpful for simple projects.

Thank you fix, Nerpson & Hype :thx:

I had doubt about relasing this plugin. There are so much functionalities missing (And a small bug i'm trying to fix :teub:). It's really comforting to see your messages :3 .

I'll still prefer using copy paste tool (because I'm placing a lot of items for my title), but this plugin is really nice addition to the editor. Good work! :thumbsup:

Edit: topkek for using both cursor coords and Essentials :mrgreen:
