Here’s a question I’ve had for a while now: How does one copy a segment of a map to move it? Let’s say I draw a whole church, and a dozen events, in the SE corner of my map. After some thought, I want to place a graveyard near that church, but there’s no open tiles left around to build one. However, the NW corner of my map is still undeveloped and has lots of room for both…

How can I easily select all the relevant tiles at once, and then cut/move them to their new position?

right-click in mapping mode to draw a selection, then the usual copy&paste with keyboard or menu for that selection (the right-click allows you to draw a larger rectangle.

you might also want to experiment with shift-click-mapping if you need to preserve or ignore the autotile function, but probably not in this specific case

Ahhhh…. It’s a right-click and hold event, which is a little difficult to do on my laptop. I’d been right clicking and selecting a single tile; never thought of holding it to select multiple. Many thanks for the fast response.

So apparently the surprise Google Search page browser game saves your progress when you close the browser.

This really makes me miss the golden age of Flash gaming.
