Summary0000059: Optional Bounding Walls on Save Region
DescriptionRegions are very useful for quick testing and reduction in compiling times when maps start getting really big - you can leave whole completed sections of the map untouched, while you work in one confined region.

In DoomEd, you can export a region and launch it; DoomEd will intelligently build a bounding box around the exported region, so that it will be sealed for BSP. That is what this request entry is for.

Note: File | Save Region apparently saves the whole map. That's not very useful. However a selected area can still be saved out with Save Selected, giving basically the same effect. But! Save Selected doesn't specify that it is a region - it could be .map or .reg. So DR must be able to handle if the user wanted to export an unsealed region as opposed to saving a map portion. Perhaps a checkbox on the save dialog, offering to construct a bounding box around the saved geometry?
TagsNo tags attached.

Interesting, I don't know much about the existing Region functionality so I will have to see how it behaves currently.

This was already functioning. Activate a region by choosing any of the available methods and click File > Save Region. Bounding walls and info_player_start are set automatically.
