Line 1: Line 1:
The group object allows a map-maker to bring together a number of elements and refer to them as a single object. The group of elements is created in the [[define]] object and then called by name with the group object.  The group of elements can then be placed, copied, and/or modified as a whole instead of having to re-create separate objects.  Group creates an "instance" of something defined.
+
A group will recall map objects within a define obect. I must be used after the define object in question.
  
Unlike most other objects, the group object can come before the definition in the bzw file.  This may help make the bzw file more readable.  
+
Group goes hand-in-hand with the [[define]] object.
