RE: the 'view' key.

Moving and Looking Around Wrote:All movement and looking will be done using the mouse. In a nutshell, there are three basic movements that can be done, all need the 'view' key to be pressed (default left Alt). When this key is held, the red focus frame will turn yellow. These movements are listed next:

Left Alt

RE: the 'view' key.

Haha you are awesome, lol that is the only thing i didn try xD thanks.
How about we make a thread with all this useful information where it all keeps get added to the first post. so other people can find it ?.

Do you happen to know how you copy walls and such, ive seen it done in the timelapse, but i just cant see that he clicks anything to do it, ive found out that a piece of wall or walls becomes red when selected and if you click B, but i cannot find the copy / past button option Confused

RE: the 'view' key.

Ctrl-D to duplicate something.

Is there a way to move vertically. I can use alt-middlemouse to move horizontally, but can't do anything vertically.

RE: the 'view' key.

You can change the camera mode by clicking of LT, which will allow you to move vertical. Another tip is that you select an object and press F, this will focus on the object and also move the height of the grid to the base of that object. So by using F you can quickly move around in a level and change height too.

You can also duplicate by holding D only and move an object, then it will duplicate as soon as it moves, so really fast for when for example build a wall for a room.
