Unlock the Zone Planner tool with Electronics. The Zone Planner allows you to select a zone colour and pattern. You can then drag areas on the landscape placing that zone down. Zones can be placed over any tile or under any entity. Think of zones like an augmented reality overlay that only really exists in your force’s memory. You can use them for base planning or decoration, or much more with other mods enabled.
Left drag to place the selected zone type. Shift+Left drag to remove.
With AAI Programmable Structures:
Unlock the Zone Scanner and Zone Controller with Circuit Network. The Zone Controller allows you to place zone tiles automatically by feeding in Signals. The Zone Scanner allows you to get the position of the nth zone tile placed of a certain type. See AAI Programmable Structures for more details.
With AAI Programmable Vehicles:
Vehicles can detect if they are on a zone to alter their behavior, or they can be sent to a zone location. A wide range of options are available depending on how you set up the control structures.
