Even though game is quite old as of 2021, many maps and mods are developed by the community. There is another map editor called XMapedit, and it may be better, but we haven't tried it. What I know is it may not open all maps. If you'd like to stick to original Mapedit, you'll need these shortcuts.

Sector tricks

Additional info: First select a group of sectors by drawing a box around it in 2D mode with Right Alt + Mouse. Example;
- 10 small rectangular sectors are created and then selected with group box.
- In 3D mode, while pointing at the ceiling, press F10.
- Enter a value of 16 and click Step Height button.
This will create a ceiling with steps of 16 units going up. If you need to reset, simply enter 0 as the value and press Step Height again. A positive value is always up, a negative is down.
Same is valid with the Light Phase (if set) of multi sectors.
