Is there a way to easily select all the polygons in a map to move them or to copy and mirror them to make symetrical maps? If not, that would be a very helpful tool in future Map Makers.

Also, it would be nice to have many sided polygons not just triangles. You could hold Control and click a bunch of points and it would connect them and make a single polygon.

You can hold down the alt key and select one after the other, but not all at once.

Edit: I know it sucks, but you'll just have to deal like the rest of us...

I know, but with complicated maps and several layers of polys, that is very very difficult.

You should be able to multi-select while in the transparent vector mode so you can easily see which polygons you're choosing.

You should just delete the superfluous polys because all they end up doing is lagging slower computers and creating tons of polybugs.

Hey Rubber, most new users don't read the FAQ, or the stickies in each forum (at the top of the threads lists) before posting and end up getting into a lot of trouble. I hope you at least glance over those so you understand how things work.

Hey, it's you bro! Hiya Ducky! Now do as Vijch says, he is always nice to new members, so at least follow his advice...

Anyway, I have to say that this isn't too bad an idea, I see it's use in CTF and symetrical maps.
Also I see its use for compiling many maps together.
Really, this may come in a custom map maker, like MM+ or oM.

I like this idea for bridges, bunkers and anything else like that but i don't think symetrical maps are very good. It's not realistic at all. Can be good for CTF maps, but don't expect to see symetrical DM, TM, PM, RM and INF maps.
