This is currently a small topic on the Trello board, though I feel like the comments made there are often unread by the developers, so I’m making a statement here. There are two options for a map editor/selector as I have observed, and I will list both below.
- World map (hardest to implement): Inside the Play menu, scrolling all the way to the right will reveal a ‘World’ option. Selecting this will move the camera to the world map screen (screen design here) in which all of the continents on Earth are mapped by a large grid. The player can select a piece of the first grid, which will reveal a smaller grid. Selecting a piece from this second grid will showcase the selected landform and ask the player for confirmation. Any grid items that contain only water or only land cannot be selected. Also, stickers will appear over any commonly selected grid item.
- Steam Workshop: A new menu will be created called ‘Workshop’, in which players have the option of creating their own landforms (by drawing rivers and customising the light and dark themes) or subscribing to and playing on landforms created by other people. The puzzle elements available on a particular landform as well as the speed of these elements can also be customisable.
