    7979The Move/Rotate Tool is what you use when you want to either move or rotate objects (everything in the 3D world/map except the terrain are objects). To move/rotate, first select the object you want to manipulate by left-clicking on it, or by dragging a selection box over them. To select actors (visual objects with no gameplay impact) press the Alt-key and then left-click or drag with the left mouse button pressed.. After selecting the object you can use the left mouse button to move the object and the right mouse button to rotate it. If you right click after selecting an object it rotates to face in the direction you clicked and if you press and hold the right mouse button while moving the mouse around the object rotates with it.

    106106The Alter terrain tool affects a greater or smaller area depending on settings on the Terrain Tab, we will look closer at that later but for now it's enough to know that it's possible to change and that you can see how large part of the map that will be influenced by looking at the bright green grid on the map. You can also see how much it will change the map in different parts of the grid, the more transparent the tile in the grid is the less the terrain below it will be affected by the tool.

    117117''The Smooth/Flatten elevation tools''
     
    119119The Smooth/Flatten elevation tools are used when the terrain needs to be smoothed/flattened, and literally flattens the terrain. To use them, just click using the left mouse button on terrain you want to flatten/smooth. It is affected by options on the Terrain tab and more info on those can be found in that section of this document. The Flatten elevation tool is extra useful to flatten terrain under large entities (like structures) so that they don't appear like they are floating. The Smooth tool can also be used to roughen things a bit by using it with the right-mouse button instead of the left. It only affects areas you already have edited though (you can affect other areas by starting in the area you've already raised/lowered the terrain and move into the rest of the map).
