WYSWIG editors are supporting only new titles so mappers that are working in VHE, UED or GTKR need to get used to new mapping technique. It's a lot different (no BSP, brushwork and static lightning) but still it's fun :)

Nice tool! It's cool to have modular editors like this these days but it's obviously very tricky for amatures to make the kind of unique art assets to conform to all the rules. That is if you're trying to make something unique not just slap together stuff like in this video.

How are the cinematics and scripting tools?
