- A resize feature has been added, allowing a column or row to be added or removed in any direction.
- The map can now be saved without refreshing the page.
- An auto-save feature has been added (1-5 minute intervals, or OFF).

509 The design map editor has been updated to allow teleport tiles to be placed. Note that predeployed units can not be placed on teleport tiles! 2023-10-30
508 Teleport tiles have been added as an official supported feature, replacing the previous 'black tiles'. Teleport tiles function as a 0-cost tile that units cannot land on or have vision on, and units traveling over them will appear to teleport from the first to last tile in the chain.

NOTE: All maps containing the old black tiles will be converted to use teleport tiles -- this may take a few hours! Contact walkerboh01 after that if you have an unconverted map.
