please find the following link to a russian spawn editor(google translated site): http://188.8.131.52/translate_c?hl=en-GB&u=http://stalkerin.gameru.net/modules.php%3Fname%3DDownloads%26d_op%3Dviewtheoned%26lid%3D84 It beats Hex editing.
oops, my bad... not the google translated link, its a download page anyway... I'm sure you'll spot the link. Here is the translated readme for a slightly earlier version: xrSpawner v0.12.1Beta
0.12.1 fixed: - now, while adding or replacing object, it's level_id would be set by it's "Level_ID" field (before you was supposed to press "accept changes" to do that)
0.12 fixed: - on removing or replacing object there was a crash before (since version 0.11) - direction vectors(*translator note: translation could be wrong here) was written wrong while getting coordinats from save-file. that was leading to new objects appearing in different place that was supposed
0.11 fixed: - loosing of direction vectors on form - changed objects binding on form - fixed movement using keyboard arrows
Program for editing all.spawn from S.T.A.L.K.E.R.
First version. That means a very far from being finished. Could edit only "spawn" section. Some of parameters was skipped coz not well understandable.
Would be developed until official SDK or more comfortable editor would be released (one, i know, is developing now ).
Programs window separated into three zones: Objects - namings of objects Object's parameters - Here you can edit object parameters Add Object - for adding new objects
Objects. Here everything is clear to understand - after loading all.spawn a list "Entity" would be shown (it could be switched to "Objects Name" where you can choose object you need to edit.
Field "search" for searching objects. And button "Next" to search for next object. in field "Objects Number" shown an objects number. so you can easy go to needed number just entering it end hitting "return" after... in "version" field there is a version of game shown
Field "Entity" - look in (gamedataconfigcreatures*.ltx)
"Objects Name" - enter name you wish
"Level_ID" - for choosing needed level
Objects CLASS you can check in "gamedatascriptslua_help.script" for new "-1" could be used
"Path to objectName of file" - enter path and filename here, relative to gamedata without extension
"Script" - section with script Coord.X, Coord.Z, Coord.Y - objects coordinates on map Vector.X, Vector.Z, Vector.Y - objects directions(rotation)
Coordinates could be retrieved in two ways: 1) In game console enter command "rs_stats" and then look at lower row of statistic that would be shown. There should be coordinates. Write them down on paper and then enter them in Coord fields in original sequence. Camera would be on height of eyes of actor so from coordinate "Z" you should remove ~1.5 meters Vector you should guess by your self. Later i will try to add an arrow pointing North.
In "second game-patch" console command "demo_record 1" 1-could be any other name. First way better to use in this demo_record mode. Decimals delimiter is coma ","
2) Get from file *_quick.sav pressing buttin "Get coordinates from savefile" Before that you should setup the name of quicksave file in options
All changed saving by pressing "Apply changes"
Adding object Here you can add object that is already saved in database. Just choose group from list and then object.
You can add object to database by yourself through "Editing" menu". Just choose "Add to base..." and then enter needed name.
All objects would be saved in "spawn.base" in root of programs directory

Gone over this quite a bit. It looks like it will do the job, just needs a translation.

How do you save it? I've managed to open and edit, but can't save. I think it did create a file in my spawns folder called "spawn.base" but it's empty. Like everyone else, I shur would like to get my hands on an english version.:}

I think you have to save each individual part, (the base files?) put them together and then save as an all file. Atleast thats the only logic I can put into it
its the third button in the first drop down, looks like COXPAH something it wont wont if you've had an error
