NeoArmageddon informed us he released an updated version of his Map Builder Tool, an in-game 3D-Editor for terrain creation, on the BI forums.
Quote : Today I want to present a little project I had laying around for quite some time but finally finished a working alpha. The project is called "Map Builder" and it is an ingame 3D-editor with the purpose of help in placing objects, compositions and vegetation when creating new terrains (kind of an improved Buldozer).
This project is in an alpha-state. It is neither featurecomplete nor fully tested/bugfree. I am releasing a first unfinished alpha to collect feedback, ideas and bug reports. I want this project to be as open to the community as possible.
version 0.6.1 Alpha:
- Changed: Floats are converted to string to increase decimal precision to 8 digits at every coordinate. Fixes missaligned objects on large terrains.
version 0.6 Alpha:
- Fixed: Broken relative position and rotation with copied selections (Copy and Paste).
- Fixed: Keypresses are resettet if the mouse leaves the main view. Prevents stuck movement keys.
- Added: Map dialog with fast travel (single leftclick).
- Added: Experimental SQM export.
- Added: All A3 objects are nor placeable thanks to CypeRevenge. They have the "(MB)"-Suffix in the list of objects.
Austin_medic released an updated version of his AUSMD Editing Tool on the BI forums.
Quote : This tool is a combination of a few smaller programs that can help speed up some repetitive tasks by generating SQF code based on the parmeters you enter. This oculd also help by preventing you from making accidental typos and breaking the command/function you are trying to use.
Added a few little notes to some of the forms.
Resized the task form to make it a bit easier to use.
Austin(medic) released his Hex to A3 calculator on the BI forums.
Quote : Tired of playing guess the value when it comes to colors in arma? With this little tool you can use a RGB value (0-255) and convert it into something arma can use. It also shows you what color (should) come out in game as well (which is the main point). Simply put in values then click the calculate button.
Requires Microsoft .NET 4.5 framework so it won't work on PC's still using windows XP (if for some reason a windows 7 user still doesn't have the framework running setup.exe will download it and install for you).
