I like my maps to be symmetrical, and I wanted to know since a casual poking around didn't find anything: Are there any commands or tools in the Starcraft 2 Galaxy editor to assist with making my maps symmetrical? Even an ability to export the heightmap for editing would work.

  • Highlight the terrain, copy and paste it, but don't place the copied terrain yet.

  • Under the Edit menu, use the Flip and Rotate options to get it symmetric.

  • I can't seem to find the tool that highlights terrain >.<

    Ok, figured it out! Use Selection Mode (space, or Tools > Selection Mode) with Use Group Selection on. Thanks :)

Map -> Symmetry

if you set it up before drawing on your map, all your changes to the terrain, decorations, units (e.g. minerals) will be automatically replicated on your map.


For anyone who runs into this and has set

Map -> Symmetry

and you've tried everything and it still doesn't seem to work, or you had it working and it all of a sudden stops...

You also have to have it toggled ON:

Tools->Use Symmetry or CMD+\
