Entities in the scenario can be quickly manipulated using the basic transformation.


To change the entity's position, simply drag it around with the Left Mouse Button.

By default, the entity's altitude above the terrain is maintained while dragging it, and it cannot be moved underground.Toggle Vertical Mode to make it follow the sea surface instead, allowing it to be moved underground as well.

When an entity gets near any surface while its altitude is being changed, it will be snapped to it. This is useful for quick positioning on building floors or terraces. You can Toggle Surface Snap to disable this behavior when necessary.
