Shortcuts That Make Level Design Easier

When it comes to level design is very time-consuming. Here are a few tips to help streamline this phase of your project.

Moving, rotating, or scaling an object in increments

When moving an object around you may need to move it one unit to the left. Hold down the CTRL key while moving and it will move in 0.25 unit increments.

Holding CTRL and Move
Holding CTRL and Rotate

Change pivot to Centre will rotate the objects to their combined centre.

Duplicate an Object(s)

Select an object and press CTRL + D to duplicate it (make a copy).

Vertex Snapping

You can move an object around by its corner vertex and snap it to another object's vertex by holding on to the V key.

With these tips, you can build out a level so much quicker!
