Its from the PC that, I don't have an Xbox 360 any more but back then it was a lot easier to make things by snapping them together, not everything worked though it was more fences etc
So Far Cry 4 on PC has a snap feature I believe it is similar to Magnet in Forge where you can join almost any item with another and can select which pivot point it joins to.

That would be really good to have on console and would speed things up a lot.

I was actually compiling a list of all the features id like to have to post about here soon and that one is at the top! Not only does it work with fences but it works while grouped with other objects, so technically you could rotate anything at precise angles. it was amazing for making custom vehicles and perfect custom circles!

Dont get why some handy features dissapeared from the editor like the snaptool.

This isnt the only little thing that vanished in time. Thought the item search in fc3 was pretty usefaul aswell. In time i needed just to type 2 or 3 letters i had the item i needed.

Or if you closed the item menu and then reopened it, you back again where you last were. Nowwa days you have to scroll the entire menu again.

All these small features save time in the end.

The edit by coordinates is really good on FC4 (Console) for precise movement but it's also slow - we should have the option to quickly rotate 45 degree at a time in any direction and then use the edit by coordinates if we need to move things more.

Also it only works for one item at a time so you can't move multiple objects with edit by coordinates - The actual rotation wheel on console is a pile of crap it is just too difficult to get any precision they should have it stop every 45 degrees in whichever way you are turning the object, Also if the Gizmo worked like it does on PC where you can move assets in only the direction you want then I would use that a whole lot more.

I always had an issue with this tool, and I'm sure you guys can probably attest to this. For some objects, the colonial wall in particular, always had this gab in the hand railing portion where it didn't clip properly or sometimes the clipping would produce a "flashy." Other objects had horizontal pieces attached where parts of the texture were missing/ invisible and that would become obvious when you clip the items together. These are just small complaints to an overall amazing tool to use when crafting buildings and other various custom assets. If the tool does make a return, this would be awesome :).
