A lot of people were asking how to use the editor in the latest Overgrowth alpha, so we decided to make a video to show off all the tools! It stars John as the narrator, and includes a tools tutorial, timelapse building construction, and exclusive footage of the elusive Rabbot.
Be sure to watch it in HD!

As always, please let us know what you think in the comments. I received a lot of really good suggestions in the comments on my last map editor post. As you may have noticed, I implemented a few of them and lots more are now on my list! For example, a few days ago, Jo-Shadow, in the forums, suggested making the editor grid from Alpha 11 remain stationary as objects move across it. I thought this was a great idea, so I added it just in time for the video -- the grid lines are now stationary and just fade in and out around the object.
