This is great. Thank you!

Can you also update with best ways to contacts for questions? Community? Advanced map for showcase?

Yes maybe we could make a list of interesting modded maps. I actually once download quite a few, I'm not sure however if I kept track of them ... I'll have a look

As for contacts and community links, they're all on the OpenRA website, but I can link them again, np

Is there away to copy paste elements from one map to another?

I've made a few revisions of a large map and after adjusting it, found I just needed tiny bit more for what I was aiming for.

I SHOULD have just made the map bigger and then added to it
with the utility in the first place. However, now I am stuck with some work done and not wanting to go back and re-do it.

So is it possible to copy paste between maps?

You can copy-paste / rename the actors in the map.yaml file. Trees, taks and starting positions.
