    Okay so basically..I'm mainly a dude thats looking to modding for Making serious maps that are meant to be played on. With this in mind I would REALLY like to know more about the coordinates on foundry so I can either easy geomerge boxes walls etc in a modded map so yeah.

    Basically here is the layout of foundry



    [​IMG]

    I would like to know some things if you know them.

    1. What way on the map would an object move if I - numbers off of the X coordinate (In the program forge)

    2. What way on the map would an object move if I + numbers on the X coordinate (In the program forge)

    3. What way on the map would an object move if I - numbers off of the Y coordinate (In the program forge)

    4. What way on the map would an object move if I + numbers on the Y coordinate (In the program forge)

    5. Does anyone know how much I would -Z coordinate to make lets say a double box half way into the ground. (Upside down box so the light green is showing)

    6. How much would you -Z coordinate to make it so that a double box is just "Barely" showing through foundry floor (Low enough that you can walk over it without a bump but still high enough so you can see the top of the box) (Upside down box so the light green is showing)

    7. Would much would I move the box in either the X or Y coordinate so it geomerges flushly with foundries wall (The box would already be as close as possible to foundries wall before changing the coordinate)

    Thanks and if I think of anymore questions I'll add them here....but if there is ANY program ANY where that you can just like click on a 2d foundry and it pops up the coordinates...that would be so helpful but I doubt there is.

    1-4. I believe the line down the middle of the map separates positive and negitive, so if your facing away from the 2 bases, the right side is negitive, the left is positive
    5. -0.5 gets it about half way
    6. -1.5
    7. idk yet

    Im still testing this out at the moment.

    Okay thanks for number 6 and 1 and 2 but do you know what way is positive for Y? I assume its towards the base and I have yet to test.

    Also technically if its -1.5 to get it flush wouldn't to be half it would be -.75? because -.5 is not half of -1.5

    And my guess is that if -.75 is half way then to get it flush with the wall it would be around -.2 or -.3?

    Can anyone clarify this? And or answer the questions again.

    Adelyss do you have aim or msn? I want to experiment this with you. I'm doing it right now, because I too have been wanting to do this.
