NewVillageEditMode

  • Summary
    • Introduced in the Halloween update on September 30, 2013, Village Edit Mode is unlocked when your Town Hall reaches level 3.
    • It enables the user to quickly clear their village space, so they can spend more time carefully designing their new base.
    • Your village layouts are saved automatically when you close the app in Village Edit Mode.
    • There are two seperate categories of saved layouts: those to be used as your normal village and those to be used as your war base in Clan Wars. Both categories allow you to save up to 3 different layouts of each.
      • The 2nd layout slot for both is unlocked at Town Hall level 5, while the 3rd layout slot is unlocked at Town Hall level 7.
    • You can remove buildings and put them into your inventory, allowing you to change your village more efficiently. Your inventory is separated by building type and level. In addition, you will be told how many of each building you have.

  • Mechanics
Village Edit Mode Icon GeorgeYao
  • Village Edit Mode can be accessed from the icon that looks like this (located on the right side of your screen).
VEMToolbar
  • On the right side of the Village Edit Mode interface, is this toolbar containing the buttons for all other tools. Tapping this button shows or hides the toolbar on the right side of the interface.
EraseOff
RemoveAll
  • Removes all buildings currently on the screen and into the inventory. This requires confirmation on the user's behalf in order to do this. It can help to notice new obstacles and remove them, as well as locate the Loot Cart and collect it.
MoveAll
  • When this button is tapped on, the user can move all the buildings placed thus far with the use of four arrow buttons, each one moving the current layout by one tile in the direction it points towards. If the arrow is grayed out, you cannot move the entire layout as such due to this movement being restricted by Obstacles, the Loot Cart or the edge of the base area.
ViewWalls
  • When toggled on, this hides all Traps, Buildings and Decorations while leaving only the Walls. The hidden objects will still be placed, however; the grass around buildings will still be shown.
ScoutMode
  • Hides all Traps and Hidden Teslas, leaving a look of your current layout as if an enemy player were to scout it.
VEMPhotoMode
  • Hides the interface entirely, allowing the user a clear, unobstructed view of their current layout. Users can screenshot (take a photo) their layout if they wish, hence the name.
SaveBase
FinishLater
  • If a layout is incomplete, this button allows the user to save the layout in its current state and allow them to finish it later. This cannot be used if the layout the user is editing is their active layout.
CancelBase
  • This button cancels all changes made to the layout thus far, without saving.

  • Trivia
    • Village edit mode allows you to see the invalid/valid spawn locations of raiding players, previously only seen for a few seconds after you click on Buildings or Walls.
    • As of the 29 January 2014 update, Obstacles can now be cleared in Village Edit Mode, though they still require resources, time and a free Builder.
    • As of the December 2014 update, you can now save multiple bases and switch between them quickly.
    • As of the May 2016 update, more functions (move all, view walls, scout view and photo mode) are added.
    • You are not able to upgrade Buildings while in this mode.
    • In a case of a disconnection, you can go back to Village Edit Mode and, upon being prompted with the recovered state of your edited village layout, you can continue editing your layout in its current state before the disconnection happened.
