What commands you often use in UnrealEd console?

What commands you often use in UnrealEd console?

I talk about this:
viewtopic.php?f=5&t=14060

For me it is
MODE SELECTIONLOCK=1
ACTOR SELECT OFCLASS CLASS=...
ACTOR SELECT OFSUBCLASS CLASS=...

What commands you use, for what and in which context?
(This info can help improve UnrealEd v469)

Button13=Select Class LiftCenter,USelectLiftCenter, SETCURRENTCLASS CLASS=LiftCenter
Button14=Select Class JumpSpot,USelectJumpSpot, SETCURRENTCLASS CLASS=JumpSpot
Button15=Apply the current texture to all selected surfaces,UDApplyTexture, POLY SETTEXTURE
Button16=Poly Select - Adjacent walls,UDSelAdjWalls, POLY SELECT ADJACENT WALLS
Button17=Poly Select - Adjacent slants,UDSelAdjSlants, POLY SELECT ADJACENT SLANTS
Button18=Selects all actors within the builder brush,UDSelWithinB, ACTOR SELECT INSIDE
Button19=Copy builder brush to selected poly,UDPolyToBrush, MAP BRUSH GET
Button20=Show Pathnodes,UDShowPaths, PATHS SHOW
Button21=Hide Pathnodes,UDHidePaths, PATHS HIDE
Button22=Select All Movers,SelectMover, actor select ofclass class=Mover
Button23=Add Semisolid Brush,AddSemiSolid, brush add flags=32
Button24=Resetting Pivot,BrushResPivot, actor reset pivot
Button25=Shows FPS Statistics,StatFPS, stat fps
Button26=Remove Unused Textures,TexCull, texture cull
Button27=Align This Actor,ActorAligner, actor align
Button28=Actor Properties,UActorProperty, hook actorproperties
Button29=Remove PathNodes,UPathsRemove, PATHS REMOVE
Button30=Delete Red Builder Brush,UTempRemove, brush set
Button31=Load Monster Hunt,MHEnd, obj load file="MonsterHunt.u"
Button32=Flush Cache,UGarbPurge, FLUSH
Button33=FaceDrag Mode,ModeFaceDrag,MODE FACEDRAG
Button34=Mover Key 0(Base),Key0,Actor KEYFRAME NUM=0
Button35=Mover Key 1,Key1,Actor KEYFRAME NUM=1
Button36=Mover Key 2,Key2,Actor KEYFRAME NUM=2
Button37=Mover Key 3,Key3,Actor KEYFRAME NUM=3
Button38=Mover Key 4,Key4,Actor KEYFRAME NUM=4
Button39=Mover Key 5,Key5,Actor KEYFRAME NUM=5
Button40=Mover Key 6,Key6,Actor KEYFRAME NUM=6
Button41=Mover Key 7,Key7,Actor KEYFRAME NUM=7
Then
- Set <classname> bSelected 1
- Set <classname> bSelected 0
- Set <classname> <whatever> <value>
The rest are embedded in MapGarbage for preventing me from writing stories all day long (importing All Stock textures, All Stock sounds).

Perhaps I cannot explain all context usage because a forum post is limited in length to not be considered spam.

But I can summarize:
- I'm often call Select None after automatic setup of combo navigation for deselecting them without any click on any point from map;
- I'm often selecting combos actors for being added not before setting up other properties for being placed everywhere when are needed;
- I'm often removing Red Brush Builder because it has no use if map is ready/already build;
- I'm often undefining paths, ordering to last and defining paths - this is preventing junks from being added;
- I'm often checking mover keys - if are not good I'm editing data without to mess with mouse dragging because I'm editing Actor Name not Actor Class;
- and so on.

And... it's place for more buttons limited perhaps by some internal bytes...

My fun party trick is MAP GRID X=0.5 Y=0.5 Z=0.5
It switches grid spacing to 0.5 unit.
I am not very fun at parties.
You must construct additional pylons.

// Texture Culling added by Legend on 4/12/2000
//
// Editor Command: TEXTURE CULL
//
// Build a "ReferencedTextures" list of all textures referenced on surfaces
// (Surfs and Mover Polys). This is the visible texture list.
//
// Then, traverse all polys in the level, eliminating textures that
// are not contained in the ReferencedTextures list.
//
// When the level is saved, all back-facing textures (textures that were
// beling loaded -- consuming memory -- but never visible to the player,
// will have been removed.)

Because I'm having the same memory problem I implemented this option in MapGarbage and all I'm doing is writing a package name and click on build. Command is created automatically... But I would like to figure any other useful command.
