Sandbox could use a few extra tools

Recommended Posts

So I was tinkering around in sandbox mode while I had some free time and didn't feel like digging into my base.  I'm still trying to setup my McMorb's franchise, but that's another point.  While attempting to use it, I kept finding I wanted tools from debug instead.

Items of particular interest:

  • I couldn't see the map without randomly spawning dupes all over the place.  If there's a way to get instavision with the sandbox I couldn't find it.  I'm sure I'm going to get four responses on that before I can even refresh with the directions to do it, so... thanks in advance?  I can't seem to find it.
  • Unable to insta-spawn buildings without having the base of the building available.  ie: putting blocks down first, then building your generator.  This can help me organize my thoughts without having to rebuild the blocks a bunch of times.  Oddly enough, you CAN put them in underground to be dug out. XD
  • Plants only have first growths.  There's no option to determine % of growth.  In particular rather handy for testing ranching for Drecko
  • Being able to spawn things inside of other things.  Containers, food storage, coal generators, etc.  Handy to be able to bring power online for testing immediately instead of getting a dupe to kickstart the process on a manual or loading material.

Overall a great toy, it's certainly letting us just 'play' in the engine, so thanks for that.  It's a nice in-between ground of the depth of debug and tinkering with the game in survival mode directly, so thanks.

You can steel use debug mode for that, but ur right, the sandbox mode is a better version of the debug, so it should have all the features and more
