View Full Version : IDEA: Grid square map revealing tool

Here is my suggestion:

In addition to the freehand lasso, there could be a grid square revealing tool. This way you could lay down the grid over your map, select this tool, and reveal a whole grid square one at a time.

This tool would be very helpful for those of us who can't draw a straight line with the mouse. The freehand lasso is very useful for caverns and things like that, but regular straight and neat dungeons is difficult not to reveal other parts.

In a lot of graphics programs, like PS, if you use the shift key while you are drawing, it makes what you are drawing 'snap' to a straight line, or a perfect circle or square.

Maybe this is a solution?

I guess that's a way around it, to implement the SHIFT key functionality. But I think it still would be faster (for us users) to reveal one grid square at a time instead of trying to outline it with the freehand lasso. Especially if when you make a mistake there is no way back, no undo.
