Generate circle tool
« on: January 28, 2018, 11:58:00 AM »
This idea should be pretty self explanatory. I propose that a creative tool for creating circles is added to the game. It would work much like the sphere tool that we have now but instead of creating a sphere it would simply create a circle around a marker. You could choose to either have it be filled in or remain empty.

This would help reduce the work required for creating perfect circles, especially larger ones.

Can't you just use the line tool for this?

Not without doing math. Even then, It would be more accurate to just build a quarter of the circle and copy it around than it would to use the line tool.

Spheres work like the flood tool don't they, where if it hits a block, it stops?


Why not just put a marker on the ground, and set the sphere to be the desired size, and fill it it. If you're worried about it being filled, outline it with a block that is different than the fill block, and replace the fill block to air, and you'll be left with an outline.

The alternative is to use the sphere tool and copy a slice out of it but true it is annoying and I'd bump this to say we need a circle tool.
