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.

@LeoBron23 -- Make the brush size "single" by dragging the slider all the way to the left.

Does someone knows how to disable the brush at the game? I want to hold props individually but I cant stop using the brush XD

An update on the mod issue. It was an incompatablity issue between this mod and another one. I have, unfortunately, no idea which mode was causing the issue.

uh... @BloodyPenguin, I have no idea if this is because of this mod or of an incompatibility issue but I am issues with this mod. When I have this mod enabled I am unable to actually use it until I disable it.

Hey, I subscribed, and some of my mods are not not compatiable with the game, is that the mods problem?

Has anyone else experienced an issue where only the graphic is updated? I levelled a bunch of terrain, particularly near a sandy beach, and for some reason only the graphics is updated (although it shows sand instead of the proper grassy terrain for the height...)?
If I build a road on that terrain it goes into tunnel mode, so the game obviously thinks that the height I "see" is not the correct one...
This is a great mod! :D
