X-Cam is an InGame 3D object placement tool with many different functions. All these functions make it much easier to place objects on any terrain.

You can export your work as a terrain builder import file, but also as a mission or script file. So X-Cam supports both mapmakers, as well as missionmakers.

There are too many features and functions included to list them all here.

Installation / Usage:
Simply watch the following video to learn to install X-Cam and how to start your first X-Cam session:

There is only a keyboard shortcut pdf file included and the whole user manual is only available as a 20 part tutorial video.
You can find all these videos by following this link:
