Creative - Fill / Clear / Replace Region - How to define it
« on: April 13, 2013, 01:55:00 PM »
Originally posted by Craig:

I'm seeing a lot of people are placing redundant marker blocks when defining their regions.

You only need to place 2 marker blocks to define a cuboid region.


MXXXXX
XXXXXX
XXXXXX
XXXXXX
XXXXXM

XXXXXM
XXXXXX
XXXXXX
XXXXXX
MXXXXX

You can see here you can define the rectangle with only two Marker blocks (M)

Extrude this into 3D for 3D regions. Again you only need 2, one for each diagonally opposite corner.

Hope this helps


P.S. You don't need to 'clean up' excess marker blocks. The game will do that for you.

e.g.

MXXXMMM
XXXMMMX
XXXXMXX

is identical to

MXXXXXXX
XXXXXXXX
XXXXXXXM

the game will clear out those redundant blocks before doing the operation.

Will there be a marker region increase in the near future?
