a random map maker(RANDOM) for the more simple minded like me :)

this is NOT for 2.0 objects...

i wanted it to be 100% BEZDIT compat.....it is so far...
its BARE BONES SIMPLE....

yes i'm a dinosaur...

yes tim already has a random mapmaker bulit in
but i wanted to try and make one myself....mine
has more varied shapes then his...

you can get it here:
http://hosted.rangfar.com/bzflagworld/f ... sc&start=0

EDIT:
when you join there in your profile
change your theme to sub-silver
to see file attachments...


i dont want to have to re-write this SO READ that thread
it explains most of it...


did i mention its NOT for 2.0 objects?...
did i mention its RANDOM?...



you know its RANDOM right?
you know its NOT for 2.0 objects right?


there are a couple bugs but since its 100% compat
with bzedit you can fix them easy and quickly..

thanks...

i did find 1 thing where its NOT compat with
BZedit 1.62 OR 1.65 world weapons still get
deleted in BZedit... :(

so that will kind make it akward...

you'll have to open up the map in
a text editor before you open it in
BZedit copy the world weapons to
your clipboard....go ahead and use
BZedit...save...

then re-open in text editor and copy
weapons back in...

sorry..didnt notice that....

An example of a map made by BZRand.

I suggest this be moved to Map Makers!

it took about 2 hours before i released the first version

with BIYA and ducatii and me1 looking at it we've
been trying to refine it for about 3 days...

me1 wins the ****** prize he was able to use BZrand
to crash BZedit.... :shock: i guess i may have
to set upper limits for objects on 800 size maps...

Hannibal
if it sees an object it dosn't have an editor for, it keeps the object around just as text, lets you edit it as text, and then saves it back out into the file. so if it didn't have support for world weapons, it would not strip all the world weapons from a map that had them, it would just let them "pass thru".

it is the core of the "future safe" map parser that it uses.

thats cool...if you could keep it to about 5 combined boxes and pyr's for
your TOTAL object size that would help...keep it SIMPLE...

we have 4 diffferent objects now + normal boxes and pyrs

i doubt it .. like RPG said...too much coding for
my simple brain....plus i am making this 100%
compatible with BZedit..and BZedit can't show
those new obejcts so you'd never be able to
see the map in BZedit and work on it..
