PointEdit: Advanced level editor [v1.3.1]

Recommended Posts

Have you ever wanted to add some sound detectors or fancy looking walls in a level without having to manually edit the .lvl files? Or to be able to place entities anywhere without limitations? Or more?

 

PointEdit is a custom-made level editor for Gunpoint. Its purpose is to complement the in-game level editor by offering new features and possibilities. Note that it is in no way meant to be a replacement for the in-game editor, but a side tool that can be used to do things that the in-game editor cannot.

 

Main features:

 


  • [*:1649h9q3] Loads and saves the same .lvl files that the in-game editor uses
    [*:1649h9q3] Large list of entities that aren't available in the in-game editor
    [*:1649h9q3] Entities can be placed anywhere inside or outside the level borders
    [*:1649h9q3] Copy/paste and duplicate functions
    [*:1649h9q3] Multiple entities can be selected and moved/copied/duplicated/deleted at once
    [*:1649h9q3] Import/export of prefabs
    [*:1649h9q3] Changeable grid size

 

The entity database (IDs and some descriptions) was created using the discoveries of Andor and Edwardo from the following thread:

It's been a huge help, so thanks to them!

 

Any suggestions/bug reports/remarks are welcome.

I've been using this tool a lot lately. Its a very very helpful way to make massive changes. The duplicate feature will help reduce the time it takes to put together a level. Nice!

Could you make it so the items actually show up? Instead of just blocks. Otherwise, the editor is perfect. :D Its difficult to make levels without really knowing what I'm placing all that much, so could you work on it maybe?
