I had the editing process a little different, but your idea makes much more sense. I was going to build the basic map in iBZEdit and then build individual objects in blender and then export and import by hand with a text editor. It does make much more sense to import the basic BZW file into blender ...

Ok, the general impression that I am getting from this is that you should create the basic structure of your map (bases, teleporters, basic boxes, etc.) in either a text editor or simple map creator (iBZEdit, BZEdit, ...). Then use a 3D program to create more complex 3D objects and import and manual...

There is also a BZW exporter plugin for Wings3D, but that doesn't make it a map editor... What is it lacking then? 3d modelers can only do meshes and materials. Meshes and materials are only 2 of the map objects that bzflag supports. The you will also need objects such as, teleporters,lings, physic...

Wings3D and Blender themselves are not "2.0 compliant creators". They are 3D modeling tools. You can install the BZWTools plugin for Blender to turn it into a full fledge mapping tool. This is what I meant when I said it was 2.0 compliant There is also a BZW exporter plugin for Wings3D, but that do...

Wings3D vs Blender

--> I'm using a PPC Mac I have been using iBZEdit and a text editor for my map making, but I now want to step it up to a fully 2.0 compliant creator. I've done research and found out that the two options are Wings3D and Blender. People have said that Blender has a steeper learning curve. If so what ...

i have a mac so i would have to mess around with compiling that test launcher.

i guess ill just use windowed bzflag and save my set options in the bzw file, and always keep the terminal window open so i can just hit ctr-c then up-arrow to restart the server.

thanks for your input
