    You can build a prefab and then select it (z):



    Then press K and choose Dynamic Prefab. Then select Save Prefab. It will be saved to the default prefab folder.



    You can then past it in again by selecting a region, select load in prefab and then replace block/instance.

    Thanks Sorrow, Spider, Alphado and Guppy. I'm not a prefabber so I don't know how most of that works, I'll leave it at that for the moment. I will make an alternative dll to replace the creative mode so that it can be used with the "normal" game folder.

    Yes, it takes whatever is in the prefabs folder.

    Yes, it can. You have to save the prefab though before you leave the game since it doesn't create region files in this mode.

    What's this about the region files? Can you elaborate more?

    There's no region folder created, so you can't load an old map in this mode, it's purely for creating prefabs from what I see. I initially thought it was a world editor seeing only the terrain tools at first. So you have to save your prefab before leaving the game.

    I wonder if this will be updated with future patches. Would hate to fall in love with it and then its gone. Unless you will be updating?

    So I'm more interested in the terra forming tools (prefabbing I got)... are you saying that I can terraform, but not save the region, therefore making terraforming not useful? Or would I have to save the terraformed area as a prefab?

    (man I wish I could try it myself, but I have to wait a few hours!)

    Maybe if he changes to the regular game it will be able to create and save region files
