Making the World Editor usable!
on: January 26, 2020, 07:47:46 AM

Hey there,

I found the default controls of the Editor rather limiting and slow.
On top of that i have a 60% Keyboard without a numblock.
Therefore i decided to remap my editor controls to "wasd".
It turned out to be quite usable and fast thus im sharing my configuration with you.


Note: some of the defaults had to go, just be aware that you might have to relearn muscle memory a tiny bit.

Here are my bindings:

ALT+S: Save map (Had to move from CTRL+S because of wasd mapping)

W: Move doodad forward
A: Move doodad left
S: Move doodad backward
D: Move doodad right

CTRL+W: Move doodad up (Z axis)
CTRL+A: Rotate doodad left
CTRL+S: Move doodad down (Z axis)
CTRL+D: Rotate doodad right

SHIFT+W: Scale doodad up
SHIFT+A: Scale doodad down on X/Y axis
SHIFT+S: Scale doodad down
SHIFT+D: Scale doodad up on X/Y axis

CTRL+SHIFT+W: Scale doodad up on Z axis
CTRL+SHIFT+S: Scale doodad down on Z axis

Q: Special select - selects all doodads of the same kind
CTRL+Q: Opens the Object-Editor for the currently selected doodad

F: Shows doodads on map and opens the doodad palette
CTRL+F: Hides doodads

X: Toggle Grid
P: Toggle Pallete
E: Edit Doodad Properties
CTRL+E: Show whole Map
Ctrl+R: Show Pathing

Thats about it, for me i didnt have to lift a finger of my "WASD" keys as soon as the terrain was set.

To use the bindings, locate the WorldEditPreferences.txt under C:\Users\<YOURUSERNAME>\Documents\Warcraft III Beta and paste this under Controls:

Hi @feebreeze !!

Nice to see this implementation. Right now I dont' know where it can fit, because in the tools section this idea should be like an app which let's you set the keyboard commands. I moved (temporally) to the General Help and WC3 Discussion board while we set a better place.

Could this topic be a tutorial? I ask because I'd like to know the logic in the symbols assigned in this file. :)

The codes are gibberish from the editor itself no real logic there as far as i see xD
Might be a tutorial yes. I could add a tiny tutorial where to adjust the settings and why i did it.

yes, It would be nice, and this could be a good tutorial for something that nobody knows how to implement.
