In case someone didn't know it yet. Owners of the game can opt in for the 1.4 beta. With it comes the map editor as well (albeit a bit flaunky at the moment)
Whats it like compared to the DoW1 map editor? Is it the same thing?
a lot of things the same, but a lot different. The biggest difference I see is in ground texture applying.
Otherwise loads of improvements, better fog control, grass etc etc, completely vertical heightmap (no slanted walls if you don't want them).
just to show what I sort of doodled up
So just for a map and quickly doodled together a quick heightmap. I love the new fog and bridges :)
If only there was a slighly more solid platform instead of the grate. Of course will still have to test if the bridges and grates are actually walkable and if I can put gameplay object on them.
