Creating a non-letter can message on a brick
To create a non-letter can message on a brick hit Ctrl+S and type your message in the message box at the very bottom (Note: Some users may not see the message box if in 640X480 resolution). After you write your message click on  apply message  and exit the window. Scroll through the wrench mode settings (Ctrl+W) until you see  Brick message mode  or the such. Take out your wrench (In inventory 5) and hit your brick. The message should appear.

Using the editor wand
The editor wand in its basic state can move already placed bricks. By going in its more advanced mode (Ctrl+E) the user can scale the bricks differently, rotate them, or even manually move them. Scaling is based on the X Y Z system. When you hit a brick with the wand you should see its scale as 1 1 1. Thatís its default. 1 1 2 will make the brick taller. 1 2 1 will make the brick wider and 2 1 1 will make the brick  fatter .

Making a mover (basic)
To start creating a mover the wrench setting must be at  brick mover mode . Hit the block that you wish to become a mover with the wrench and a window will appear. Moving is again based on the X Y Z system. If you want the block to become a door Click the  Normal  radio button. If you want to make the block to be an elevator check the Elevator checkmark.

Use the Ezy-mover-mode if the above is too hard.

Making a mover (advanced)
Triggered movers are quite fun to make once you get the hang of it. Create your door/elevator first but this time when in the mover window click on  Triggered . Assign that  Triggered  a number. Make another block and make its movers are at 0 0 0 or your button shall move. Make your button  Trigger  and assign it the same number as  Triggered . Jump/run into your button and the elevator/door should move. If you do not want people to use the door/elevator unless they hit the button simply click  No collision  on the door.

Cloak - Clocks the mover when activated.
Password - puts a password on the mover or  Trigger

To lock your mover or  trigger  use the Key (Located in inventory 5)
