MG and Vanilla Glest Map Editing Tools
« on: 20 April 2018, 01:44:50 »
Hi. I'm looking for a download link for latest version megaglest map editor? Not the one inside the Megaglest client download. I just want  the map editor. Is there a link for that somewhere here on the site and I'm simply not seeing it? I understand the editor is in the client file. 

Is the online editor okay to use in its present state? Are people still downloading and playing vanilla Glest?

I'm wondering which map file types to host. I can duplicate maps and file types for both Glest and MG. That's easy. I just need to reformat all my mediafire maps because some are in a .rar form. Fom the days when, you know, people complained about the cost of downloading 5k files. I may as well do all of this at once. That's why I'm asking.

PS: I've received an invite from Andy to join a modder group. Hello Andy. That's nice. I mashed a few tilesets together, but that was just copying XML stuff and cutting textures. I can't actually code or write XML/LUA stuff or mod. Hah. But I still joined the team!

Many questions, many answers.

---
Map editor download:

https://megaglest.org -> Download -> All available downloads. Then download the megaglest-binary archive which matches your OS + architecture.

Alternatively click here: https://github.com/MegaGlest/megaglest-source/releases/latest

Unpack the archive and you should see a megaglest_editor binary you can run. That's if you system provides the dependencies it requires.

If this doesn't work you can always download the full thing. In the end you'll probably want access to existing data anyways, since you'll want to load existing maps to get an idea of what's already there / how things work.

---

Online map editor:

I don't know about the state of the online editor, I don't think it was complete when I last looked at it, but this was a good while ago. So things may have changed. Where to find it?

---

Map file hosting:

I guess map file (on disk) and download sizes are not an issue, they can just be stored uncompressed and transferred compressed on the fly (if the webserver wants it).

Infringement claim:

If MegaMap_eight_gradient.rar contains what the name suggests (have not checked) then Mediafire has the most useless copyright monitoring system I've ever come across. You should probably 'submit a counterclaim' or just tell them how much you appreciate their tremendous efforts in verifying random copyright claims and host elsewhere.

Please consider posting separate topics for separate topics (even if they may seem closely related fomr your perspective they are maybe not for others, and those searching the forums) in the future. Thanks.

Thanks Tom. I'll go ahead and get the MG map editor via the link you provided.

As far as the copyright infringement? The whole thing is kinda funny and silly. I think it possible that the film production company uploads dailies to a server host like mediafire - and - a snooping algorithym identified one of my file numbers as being similar to one of their 'dailies' file number uploads. Just a guess. Considering that my file predates their film production by eight years or more.

Mediafire have been hosting my map files for ten years at no cost to me, so I've not a lot to complain about.

PS: I've received an invite from Andy to join a modder group. Hello Andy. That's nice. I mashed a few tilesets together, but that was just copying XML stuff and cutting textures. I can't actually code or write XML/LUA stuff or mod. Hah. But I still joined the team!

I noticed that a few days ago. Great!

Glad to see you popped in Andy. I rarely visit mod database. Possibly the first time in five or six years. I even stopped checking some of the old open source game websites. So much of the new stuff is for mobiles, something I'm just not interested in.
