Allows to place natural resources in-game + provides configurable tree brush&pencil, terraform and water tool. This mod was previously called ' In-game Natural Resources Tool '

Provides some Map Editor tools in-game (like Resources Tool) and movable 'Brush Options' toolbar. Available through a main toolbar icon (see screenshots). This mod also provides its own tree brush which can be customized via 'Brush Options' toolbar. Tree density ('Strength') can be customized as well as brush size and shape. To use tree pencil mode hold left mouse button pressed and move mouse in single tree mode. It's handy for painting lines of trees or filling tighter areas like roundabouts. In tree pencil mode tree dencity depends on strength slider.

Another tool is Water Tool which is available through a main toolbar icon and can be configured from 'Water Options' toolbar. Use manual input field to set capacity values smaller than 0.01 (0.0001 minimum).

In addition to that this mod extends Terrain Tool which is almost the same as rollo's Terraform Tool, but uses vanilla tool and has slightly different implementation of ditch tool. Pros: it's configurable and free, and allows undoing terrain modification. These two mods are compatible so you can use both at the same time though I don't see any reason to use rollo's mod now.

All tools work exactly like their Map Editor counterparts and use the same keyboard keys and mouse buttons (+,- to zoom, right mouse button to erase).

This mod provides 'Options' button. You can configure which tools will be available in-game via options entry.

If you want to plant trees or place water sources anywhere on the map use my Cross The Line mod.

Known conflicts:
- Find It!'s 'Enhance all panels' feature makes this mod's surface selection panel blank. You don't have to turn off the entire Find It! to make it compatible with this mod and Extra Landscaping Tools. Just go to Find It!'s options and disable 'Enhance all menus' option there.
- Because this mod provides its own tree brush, it's incompatible with Tree Brush mod by Destroyer. This mod doesn't reuse any of Tree Brush source code.

Possible future features:
- wildlife spawn points
- Prop pencil
- brush rotation
- random trees placement (if it's possible)

This mod doesn't provide any custom brushes. To get custom brushes, check out this discussion.

Thanks GitHub user martinrlilja for the code that loads Map Editor icons in-game. Thanks SamsamTS for his UI elements examples. Thanks reddit user thebigeasy67 for inspiring me to do tree pencil mode.

This mod uses awesome detours C# library[] by cope. Without it, this mod would've been impossible to make.

Hi, I am happy with EXTRA landscaping tools, but this mod seems to REPLACE my old landscaping tools, which I preferred to use like 80% of the time. They're much slower and easier to control, etc. Am I just blind and there's a way to still access the default tools, or no? I want both.

There's a minor bug with this mod and the Parklife park paths. For some reason, enabling this mod (or Surface Painter) makes it so that you can't use the upgrade road tool with the paths from the Parklife DLC.

I have used this mod for a long time. So glad it exists. A couple months back I noticed the "natural resource" portion was not working. Yet everything else is. Today I disabled all my mods, which isnt that many, really. And only had this mod enabled. Again, everything works but the resource portion. Could an asset be causing this? Or am I missing something?

Hmmm this mod works, but the game randomly crashes after it is enabled.

@codaho, rashaunjames95: It must be a compatibility issue with another mod. I've used this mod every day for weeks and everything works great, including the water tool. Try disabling all other mods and running just this one.

natural resources work random

Water source isn't working for me either

for some reason the water source tool is suddenly broken for me, can click on the icon, am able to remove sources and change their water level but cant spawn new sources.

Great mod, but for some reason the Ore/Oil resources painted in-game drain almost immediately. It function more like "cosmetic resoucer" then actual source of resource.

Just wanted to say 'thank you', this mod is awesome!
