Swarm Keeper is a Dungeon Keeper inspired modification for Alien Swarm. It offers the following features: Build a dungeon for your creatures (aliens), imps which perform tasks for you (like digging blocks away, collecting gold), a portal through which creatures enter your dungeon, different room types (treasure, lair, hatchery and training), a dungeon heart, which must be protected from enemies and invading marines as enemies. This mod should be considered as an experiment to bring a Dungeon Keeper like game to the Source Engine.

"- Rooms can now be created by dragging a square at the target area with your mouse."
think you should make it just click, without dragging, it may cause some "misdrags" when you accidently release button and place thing where its not supposed to be. Misclicks are common too, but not so as these ones.
