Is there a simple method of making an active object (set to the position of the mouse cursor) snap to an isometric grid without the use of any extensions?

Hi Buster, long time no see dude. Have you gone for the typical 1:2 ratio ?

Whoops. I made an example but I didn't see you said "isometric grid".

Here it is if anybody is interested anyway:

Ohhh man I appreciate you going though the trouble! But yeah, unfortunately I need it to be isometric which is proving to be a little more challenging than I thought!

Hmm I have tried projecting a 2d Grid into ISO, trouble is due to the scaling the mouse only works for half of the isometric projection.

Attempting a crafty bodge attack now

Very nicely done Sketchy . My bodge was a calamitous affair (looking for even lines and adding half a tile width to the cursor position).

I just googled "snap to isometric" and came up with this:

All I did was make an MMF2 example out of it.
