    Indeed. Speaking of that, if you had a tall building, perhaps you could move the build plate down and up. Or is that already in the game?

    I like the idea of having limited build plate sizes. it makes you be creative

    Agreed.

    Having to re-place the Buildmap when I need to move around/get closer/be more precise works, but is kinda frustrating.
    Especially because the AR automatically tries to size it for you, and sometimes that means it doesn't fit properly in my play area, or is super small relative to my location.

    Yes! It’s really hard to find a good angle to set down my build plates because they’re so large. I don’t have a coffee table, and usually I end up needing to set up my build plate on the floor anyway because the blocks are large enough that if I set more than 1 or two high, I have to stand up and reposition myself. It’s not conducive for casual play. I keep wanting to put the build plate on my lap so I can have a bird’s eye view when I’m building (and because that’s the most comfortable position to play in), but I can’t because it’s too large and I have to contort my position to place or see what I’m doing.

    The ability to resize would be very helpful for times when playing on a small table or when you have the room (and weather) to play outside and want something a little bigger for build mode

    I would like to be able to manipulate where my build plate is in front of me, including it's scaling. The scene in the first advertisement with peeps sitting in a cafe working on a build plate is not a reality due to the default size of the build plate.

    I planned a date with my wife in hopes that we could plop down a build plate between us at a starbucks and work on a build together.  In reality, we looked like weirdos because we had to stand up and step back to do anything due to the size of the plot! We ended up giving up, and just enjoyed our cups of coffee concluding that I'd make a feature request in hopes that this kind of experience could become a reality.

    When using the build mode, it really is necessary to be able to rotate it around and move the baseplate.... It's very frustrating when you can't get the angle you are wanting and end up not being able to build what you want.... I would go further as to suggest a zoom feature for the adventure mode... Too many times I'll set the adventure plate down and not be physically capable of going far enough to actually see into the hole... Just now I set my adventure plate down and it was so far away from me I would have had to walk thru a filing cabinet and a wall in order look down into it 🤦🏻‍♀️ could only get the top level of blocks and had to go back to map😭

    Not only have the option of scaling before dropping your build plate but also add better way to rotate and scale after your place in Top Table mode because right now it's very clunky.
