How do I select units and doodads like in Starcraft and then clickdelete and right click forproperties. I hate going to the object manager, its like a downgrade from SC's interface.

And how do I delete doodads. Some doodads I have to use the annoying method of building cliffs over it but stuff like barricades that I want to move and place somewhere else I can't drown or raise. Its weird because the object manager doesnt let you do anything to doodads, so they cant be deleted.

Maybe I just dont know how to use the edittor, or I was spoiled by SC's editorred, but i think it really blows.

Toolbars :)

In the editor, in the main toolbar (like under the file, edit, view, scenario, module pull down menus) there is a button with a picture of a square drawn with a dotted line. Use that tool to select the object on the screen and then press the <del> key. That should help. I know its annoying and isnt as easy to use as the War3 editor or the SC editor, but it sure does a lot more cool things.

Actually, BKnight, this is a real problem, my select (which I DO know how to use) will not work on my computer, but it works when I try it at a friend's house. The problem is simple, RAM problems. If you are experiencing this, you should also not be seeing any grid

Actually, this is what we call a "User" error.
To select something, either go to tools and click "Selection brush" or just press the space bar. Now you can highlight, delete, move, whatever, your units/doodads/etc. (that button also works, it's right below the tools heading, but you're description of it was bad so I thought I'd clarify)

Now, if you're selection brush isn't working, you've got some real problems.

    My boyfriend is super into Bethesda modding so I'm probably going to join him in that for a bit, then move on to making mobile/browser games.

    I think you can still run the original game, just there's a chance your map won't work with the newer patches

    what development framework have you been looking at for mobile development?

    mostly failing at life through adulthood really demotivated me for a while
  • C Cherry.Grove:
    ....what I don't get is why the fuck they would force us to permanently convert to a version of the game everyone fucking hated : \

    Raid Shadow Legends texture pack smh
  • jonas jonas:
    Most people fail at life throughout their adulthood. Sometimes we get to learn from it. Usually it just feels like crap.
