I've never seen Python... I would stick with BZEdit most likely. (then again I would love to see a Python screenshot - weird name same as the programming langauge...)

I used Py/BZe for a bit before I got into model maps, Python was certainly better. Not so good graphics but drag and drop was a lovely feature.

What do you meen drag and drop? I thought Python was a language and you have to convert it into a .bzw file?

There's a Python GUI map editor. I thought that's what you were talking about. :)

It's on SF

Wooo! BZFed! I vote for BZFed, only problem is, the compilers on this system are to new for it, so I have to reboot to use it. :(

I use BZEdit 1.6.5, works fine for what i need, as my maps are probably always gonna be 1.x maps.

Python is a programming language, if im remembering right. not exactly for making text files...
