Section for resource maps in regions

For most people who use regions, it can be annoying to get a map for a resource and then build it. I think there should be a section dedicated to this so we can share useful maps quickly.

A section ? How ?

We would have a thread in the forum, possibly.

Or in the coloniae where we could post ideas for a map to build to maximize resource production

There's lots of places that have layouts already. Like in the discord federation you are a part of for example :)

yes, but I think there could be ways to make these maps more accessible. Also, there could be a way that in the game that you could "screenshot" the map so people could see it in my colony but not interact with it.

Well I'll be honest. Being able to send someone a fully finished map that they can just plop into one of their region maps could not only break their colony big time, but could also prove overpowered. Image if someone sent you a mid-sized map just full of pre-built alu gens when you're just starting to hit the alien art bottleneck. Then Image that you could duplicate that file over and over agin to file half of your region with these maps, each copy having maximum population and perfect education and happiness. That would be cheating.

however, being able to take a snapshout of an entire colony that you can send to others would be nice, and would definately not be cheating.

No, I mean that you have the layout, not the actual thing. It would be nice to have some sort of highlight to place things down so you can finish the map how it is, not doing some weird thing then accidentally breaking it (Ahem)

I see. That would require a lot of programming, especially since some buildings take up multiple tiles and there are many buildings to account for. I think that's something that bast wouldn't have time to work on since it would be a pretty big undertaking.
