This is awesome. I would like to see it function similar to Ked and Map Viewer.

*When an archive file is selected, show a list of all files on the left sidebar. When something is selected in that sidebar, show a preview if available (like selecting a model should show a preview of the model).

*Ability to manually edit the files (mainly those involving just text like IPL/WPL and DAT) through the map viewer, like a regular Notepad.

*When double-clicking on a map object, have a small pop up that shows the object and let the user be able to rotate it as a preview. The pop up should show the object's model name and hash number, and list its corresponding texture file and an option to preview that texture.

*Place a map of Liberty City using its radar files. Double clicking a radar tile should pop up a preview of the texture.

*Press a key to take a screenshot.

*Some place to show the current position of the camera.

*An option to not load the textures and show only the models.

*An option to adjust the field of view of the editor.

*Google Maps-styled water would be nice if you can do that. A flat blue surface look too bland.

*Support for LUA scripting like in Steve-M's Map Viewer?

*2dfx/particle viewing possible?

*Garage zone editing included?

*Train track editor included?

*If a custom model/texture is corrupted/incompatible, maybe show an error/list of errors in a box?

 

Finally, what's up with this image?

http://www.shadow-link.nl/gallery/gtaedit1.jpg

It's showing SA files while the next image shows IV files.

Lol if you look at screens like this, when it's so clear without shadows and stuff, it looks like GTAIII! tounge.gif

That's because III era games were the base for IV era games, IV era games being, most likely, the base for V era games wink.gif

 

Looking good shadow, I can't wait to play around with it - question - it DOES allow ME to choose what and where to mod, right? None of that Spark IV bullsh*t where I can only access certain files if I look in my actual clean install directory?

Thanks for the suggestions spaceeinstein biggrin.gif that's exacltly what this topic is for wink.gif

 

This is awesome. I would like to see it function similar to Ked and Map Viewer.

At the moment movement and rendering is exactly like in MEd, want the movement to be like Ked (I thought it worked better).

 

*When an archive file is selected, show a list of all files on the left sidebar. When something is selected in that sidebar, show a preview if available (like selecting a model should show a preview of the model).

I could add a 3d model preview in the recourse browser (shown in the concept pic).

*Ability to manually edit the files (mainly those involving just text like IPL/WPL and DAT) through the map viewer, like a regular Notepad.

WPL files are binary in IV so having a text editor for that will not work, just the DAT file and a few IPL files will work.

*When double-clicking on a map object, have a small pop up that shows the object and let the user be able to rotate it as a preview. The pop up should show the object's model name and hash number, and list its corresponding texture file and an option to preview that texture.

Don't know if the preview render is really needed, it will only slow the app down tounge.gif but if more people think it's a good idea I will look into it

*Place a map of Liberty City using its radar files. Double clicking a radar tile should pop up a preview of the texture.

The radar was on my to-do list really liked that option in Ked.

*Press a key to take a screenshot.

Screenshots will be ugly because it's all rendered really ugly, but it might be a nice feature. Will put it on my to-do list.

*Some place to show the current position of the camera.

Current camera position is shown in the three boxes under the opengl window. You can even adjust the coords of the cam with it smile.gif

*An option to not load the textures and show only the models.

That's what the 3 buttons are for on the top bar smile.gif (1. wireframe, 2. without textures, 3 with textures)

*An option to adjust the field of view of the editor.

Added on my todo list

*Google Maps-styled water would be nice if you can do that. A flat blue surface look too bland.

In this pic I used the GTA IV water texture. I think it's ok to use that?

*Support for LUA scripting like in Steve-M's Map Viewer?

I might add this later, want to get the map rendering/editing done first.

*2dfx/particle viewing possible?

Is on my todo list tounge.gif

*Garage zone editing included?

Also on my todo list

*Train track editor included?

Also on my todo list, hehe

*If a custom model/texture is corrupted/incompatible, maybe show an error/list of errors in a box?

Was thinking about putting a debug console in the app that shows stuff like, loading model example.wdr and if there are errors display them in red.

 

Finally, what's up with this image?

http://www.shadow-link.nl/gallery/gtaedit1.jpg

It's showing SA files while the next image shows IV files.

That's an old image where I was testing GTA.dat loading (the checkbox list wasn't working back then). So what the app did was load a IV wpl and render it and load an SA gta.dat. (hope this is a clear explanation tounge.gif)

 

@supermortalhuman, you can mod exactly the same as MEd and more tounge.gif.

 

Thanks again for the suggestions, like to hear more suggestions from the community.

The main feature i really want is the ability to view the loaded map in 3D with textures just like in Ked. I cant wait until this is done. Oh and maybe chosen times like in Med where you choose say 22:00 and it will darken the area and the city lights will come on. Hope this becomes available soon!

An wdr2fbx or every other format that have 3ds Max support !

Why would you want that? wow.gif

Hey man, are you working on a Player Model filter? I know i should ask that for Oleg

 

But are you working on DFF2WDD, or a new version of DFF2WDR that supports Player Model

That doesn't look good. I thought it was the sea floor when I first looked at it. Maybe a little transparency to it might be good.

Better water is with alpha.

Oh my gosh! This program is AWESOME! I am SO downloading this when it's released! biggrin.gif

I think you should make it so that when the user right-clicks on a building, up in the top-right hand corner of the 3D interface, it tells you what the object's .wdr and .wtd are called. Of course, some objects don't have a .wtd to go with them.

 

Good work man!
