When you're using BGtext or Text, it is uncomfortable to make custom tiles because the trigger mark prevents you, look at that:

I would like to at least recommend adding:

Far background wall tile with text color palette + one pixel tile with same options
Background wall tile with text color palette + one pixel tile with same options
Foreground wall tile with text color palette + one pixel tile with same options

Or same tiles structure as placeholders, but with RGB color palette

So, this will allow you to choose any color from RGB palette and you can make different locations or custom objects.

Notice: This could a bit allow the game to live longer because sometimes it will be useful and players could somehow easily make new custom tiles

I want to have doves that can carry items or cargo containers with ease. Atm it is not possible in sfd, but by adding a trigger of some sort that makes stuff weightless, doves can carry me around while I am sitting in WC or subway train

I would like to see the addition of a marker that can be toggled on or off. not quite like a switch. I couldn’t find anything like it when looking for it. The closest/only thing I could find was a made up thing when moving a solid object into an area marker. So far the way the game seams to read markers is just by a single blip or pulse, but what my suggestion is to add something that can input and output either a 1 or 0 at all times (just like electricity and transistors)

either this, or this and input it with logic gates

When you make campaigns, sometimes you'll have to make different types of bots and some of them may be civilians and if you already have some weapons or throwable items, you can still damage them. I'd like to suggest possibility to disable friendly fire and add some additional modifiers.

1.Friendly fire/throwing modifier - may be disabled or enabled;
-first of all if you disabled this option, projectiles/throwables will go through the bots and cant damage them.

2.Explosion critical damage - may be disabled or enabled;
-if it's disabled, bots or players can no longer get stun or fly away from the explosion.

Merged standalone thread with this existing one.

This new area trigger is for a consecutive activation with <ms> delay option (you can set the time it takes to activate again) if the player is inside it. It would helpful in map editor players to make especial zones where there is radiation, hot steam, hp regeneration zone, poison, etc. Also to create a mechanism to detect if the player is still in an arena.

Example: https://i.imgur.com/LM0z79g.mp4 (this is just montage)

Before, I tried to make the "consecutive activation" by using a dynamic Arena Trigger to moving it from side to side, but sometimes it was lagging and staggered...

A trigger that serves to activate when player does a specified move.

Example:

You must select the move that player must do (kick, roll, grab...) in options that this trigger has to activate the object that you want to activate.

(I think I'll stop suggesting ideas for a while because game will not update in a long time, there are no servers available, they delete the help that I want to give and my head explodes to see if grammar is correct...)

-I hope one day to have green ping on most servers...
-SFD is a good game that inspired people to make friends, be artists and "YouTubers". I hope one day SFD becomes famous and everyone recognizes it.

Adobe Slopes

Dirt and asphalt are my favorite tiles to make custom maps with because they have 3 types of slopes. It’s great for creating natural type shapes for organic styled maps. This is why I build many of my maps out of dirt.

It is for this reason that I would be so grateful if there were adobe slopes. Either that or add a dark gray alternate color for the asphalt tiles, whichever is easier to implement. Then there would be the possibility to build with dirt and stone together.

———————————————————————

Lava

We have acid and water, so why not add in the classic video game liquid known as lava? Lava would be great for creating a spooky atmosphere. We could make dungeons, volcanoes, hell, evil lairs, etc. Working together with adobe slopes we could make some awesome stuff

———————————————————————

The map editor is already so awesome and versatile but with the addition of adobe slopes and lava, it would be even greater than it already is. Thank you for reading my suggestion.

Simple suggestion:
FgRailing, as simple as that, yet I think we need these, these could look like metal objects, may be slightly bigger because, bgrailing is supposed to be on the background, as it is foreground these are in front of players like most of foreground tiles and that would be pretty much it.
