I have made a fairly large map and when I tested it out in ZH, (was using ZH editor to build it) I realized that I could only navigate about 1/8 of it. I found that the issue was the orange bounding box. So I tried to make it larger, to stretch to the outside of my level, and it moved. It stretched, but it did not relocate, I can make it bigger if I pull it to the upper right, but I can't pull it down to the left, without it drawing a different colored box that doesn't actually do anything. What should I do to get my level playable?

You know, besides making a 10 Star map, this is the other thing I cannot do. I swear to you I have tried every trick in the book. The ONE thing that gives at least some result was when I messed with the border size. You can somehow manuever the anchors and resize the borders or even the map to make that orange bounding box fit. My word of advice, next time leave the box alone...lol :nodding:

As for the pink, blue, green, ect. boxes...Beats me, they must serve some point for the scripts or something...

OMG, it just dawned on me!!! Try removing the bounding box by making it so small it dissapears/deletes like the others do! Maybe then you can make a new one?!?!!? This I have got to try! :type:

Nope, scratch that, only makes different colors like before...Man I hate it when that happens... :uhoh:

Thanks, but it just seems stupid on EA's part for letting you only adjust a four corner box in only two directions! They need to release an official tutorial.

They did.....it's crap. It tells you HOW to make a map. I can sum it up for you what they say:

1) Make it good (wow that's an amazing tip) 2) Make it symmetrical (aka don't be creative) 3) Be creative (contradicts tip #2)

And that's about all you will get out of thier "tutorial" it tells nothing of HOW to use it...Lame :fistpunch:
