    Decal roads have been sluggish to refresh to terrain shaping after v0.22. Tested in safemode on many maps. Grid snap options won't help. Sometimes a road node must be selected and moved a bit to refresh the road to terrain underneath... just to see that it needs more smoothing and more unnecessary node movements to check the progress.
    Other than that the editor changes are excellent.

    Yes, we made a change (i think it was in 0.21 already) to not make as many unnecessary decal road updates when changing the terrain, so that terrain editing will have less lag

    Maybe a setting for refresh rate or a button then. I don't mind the lag vs getting stuck with this:

    I will make the reloading of the decal roads part of "Rebuild Collision" in the menu bar. This can be triggered by selecting the item in the menu, by pressing "Ctrl+F7" and it will be run automatically when closing the editor if anything has changed.

    Sounds even worse than selecting the road and shaking a node to refresh it (which feels like hammering a nail with a nail).

    -edit-
    The best way to cope with this "improvement" is to keep the road in inspector window, shape the road blindly a few sweeps and click one of those decalroad +,- fields to refresh the road to terrain. The workflow is about ten times slower than it used to be and I'd happily pay another 20 coins just for a WE 2.0 Legacy Road Shaper -addon.

    Yes, this issue is known. Unfortunately we havent found a reliable way to reproduce this issue yet. Until then, you can enable the vehicle controls by clicking on the "Enable driving" button in the editors toolbar and then closing the editor again.

    They are either the symbols in the toolbar or they are under the "Window" tab

    The new world editor is shaping up to be pretty awesome, great work so far.
    Have some wishes for it:
    - Be able to change the color and width of the terrain brush boundaries square/circle
    (I can hardly see it)
    - Be able to type in the size of the terrain/paint/texture brush
    (so hard to be precise with the sliders)

    Brilliant, thank you :) what button did you press to move the slider without the mouse, at the beginning of the clip? That looked precis.

    Mouse Wheel controls the size of the brush (in most edit mods that uses a brush).
    At the bottom of the editor is a bar that shows the shortcuts each edit mode has by the way.

    my only complaint is I can't grab terrain with 2.0, is it a feature that'll be removed or just hasn't been moved over from the old editor, it's the only reason I still have to go back to 1.0, of course I could just be missing something but the option is always grayed out for me

    It hasn't been moved yet, but it is planned to get moved over as well.

    I don't appear to be able to change lua function scripts for triggers, usually a text editor like this:

    pops up but not in the new world editor.
    This might just be me not knowing how to use the newer editor correctly, but for now I have to use the old one everytime I want to change something (e.g. teleporters).
    Is there a way for me to do this inside the world editor 2.0?

    When you open older maps like Altitude in the new editor everything works just fine. But when you make timetrial with race tool and put the *.race.json file in quickrace folder the map won't load anymore. Remove the race.json and the map loads. If I'm to use old editor to mess with older maps please don't remove it from the game

    But what does have to do with new editor ? Will it load if the new editor is not active ? It seems to be a race tool issue, please post your logs, maybe there is some Lua error. Try to provide a bulleted list of detailed bug reproduction steps so we can file it in our bug tracker. Thanks

    I tried to make timetrial in the old editor "the old way" and no go, it didn't work. I have 2 maps so far that do this when you put something in the quickrace folder.
    All the stuff I added shows up in the time trial menu but when you start the race it doesn't load. The loading screen appears but none of the boxes fill, no text like adding meshes ever appears. It just sits there and when you hit esc the game goes back to main menu. And here it gets funky, now when you go to that map in freeroam it never spawns a car there and the camera is in freemode. If you spawn a car manually the camera doesn't get attached to that car, it still acts like freemode even when you try to disable it, it says orbit or whatever you try to change it to but the camera just floats there and when you hit acceleration you see your car leaving you behind. When you delete quickrace folder the map works and loads correctly. I don't know what to do
