Friends can i create a map and save it to use later. I have a village for hunters and all of the base layouts will be the same so i figure why not just make a single template that i can paste in some way.

Also is there a optimal or preferred map size for house interiors. I made mine one size which i thought was nice and roomy but when i looked at it in the game WOW did it look empty.

you can make up to 999 maps in a project, and you don't need to use everyone of them.

And it takes experience to plan a map to get it right in first try - expect to redo some of your first maps a lot until you're satisfied.

I just wanted to be able to copy from the same map as the layout will be used multiple times.

You can right click the name of the map in the list in the editor and then copy it.

As Mlogan mentioned, once you make a map you can copy and paste it. In this sense, yes you could make a template, then copy --> paste it and make whatever modifications needed.

There isn't exactly an optimal size for interior maps. A lot of people use a rule of thumb where you start off small, building in what you want, then expand as needed. This way you don't have this vast empty space that you are trying to fill.
Example: Lets say you used the default map size of 17 x 13. Then you decide to make the living room combined with the kitchen. Next you add in a bedroom and find that you need more room. Click on your map, press space to bring up the details and change the settings.

If you need to move the map a bit there is a setting named "Shift" that you can access by right-clicking on your map name in the left-hand pane.

Ok, what if you want that map in another project? How do you save it as a template and use it on a different project?

Or is it the same? Just copy the map that you want from Project 1 and paste it on Project 2?

Edit: Nvm. I got the answer thanks. And also I'm in the wrong game. I'm using VXACE.
Also this post is 1 year dead. I can't see the "delete post" option.

welp, I literally can't continue working on ALEX now that my MZ trial is up (unless I somehow place in the jam which I don't remotely deserve to for my unfinished crap) so I am back on my bullshit
some test stuff. Empty for now. My other project (this project) needs more attention. The lagging really kicks up when I try to capture gameplay. ✨

When your side job becomes more interesting than your dayjob and you think "do I quit again or finally actually do the same thing for more than five consecutive years..." I don't think I'll ever be able to say that though, I just cannot stick with one thing like you're 'supposed to'.
Does the word "research" imply that you're searching for something that had been found before?
