File Description

This is an unofficial Scenario Editor for the game Supreme Commander. This tools is just an early version and doesn't include all planned features yet.

It is here, the first (unofficial) map editor for SupCom!

What it does: - Edit terrain and texturing of maps (real 3D display of the terrain) - Add/Remove/Edit start locations, mass points, AI markers, etc. - Add/Remove/Edit Decals and Props to decorate your maps - Resize Maps - Restrict build options on a map

What it does NOT do (yet): - Editing of Singleplayer missions (only multiplayer maps for now) - Adding units or wreckage to a map - Individual scripting

BE AWARE that this is just a Beta version. There might be errors, bugs, crashes and maybe even corrupted files. You are using this at you own risk! (I don't expect any massively bad things to happen, but you never know. )

Since the editor supports the full SCMAP format now, the loading times and the memory usage have increased alot! Especially on larger maps it does need alot of (Video- and System-)RAM. Functions like Resize, Load/Save and Import/Export may need a while to complete. Just don't panic when the app freezes for some time.

The overall performance is quite bad! Loading times are horrid and the whole thing runs SLOW. I haven't done ANY optimizations yet! In example a 80x80km map is rendered in full detail with all of its 33.000.000 polygons... There is a lot potential for optimizations.

version 0.45 Beta HERE!

6. Known Issues
---------------

- Mouse<->Terrain intersection is still buggy. Items may
not be attachted to the mouse correctly while dragging.
In some situations you might not be able to select an
item due to this bug. In this case flatten the terrain
display by pressing Ctrl+T and select the item now.

- Props can't be rotated for now.
