Corners are added automatically and the modular set is extracted from a data table, making the tool flexible and easy to expand. The UI is updated automatically from the data table as well.
Set pieces can be easily swapped between several modular sets.
Additional controls are provided for easy manipulation such as grid snapping, angle snapping, mirroring, incremental rotation.
Flexible rail system compatible with a push-pull system from which is derived a wagon class. Each wagon can navigate between rails, rails can be moved and rearranged at runtime. Easily accessible to artists and level designers.
