An artist's depiction of an Extended Unit Death



ScmDraft 2 Version 0.9.0

Most mapmakers are familiar with ScmDraft, a feature-rich map editor created by Suicidal Insanity.
Now, the most popular editor returns, packed with a wide variety of enhancements.

This contains many many changes compared to the previous 0.8.0 and 0.8.1 versions. While the full set of changes is too large to list, here is an overview of the major features:

  • Vastly expanded visual overlay abilities. (Terrain properties, unit ranges, transparent creep among others)
  • New unit, unit sprite, pure sprite palette windows.
  • Completely redone doodad, user-defined brush, and terrain palettes
  • Completely redone map properties window, including string filtering.
  • Overhaul of the entire UI to support HiDPI / font scaling, nicer looking controls, better resizing, etc.
  • Expanded terrain symmetry options, to support rotational symmetry with various parameters.
  • Added support for the vorbis OGG sound file format in triggers.
  • Preview of the in-game pathfinder regions
  • Lots and lots of performance improvements and bug fixes
  • Much nicer code, and cleaner error handling
  • Enhanced logging, available via -console command line or in the debug menu.

O)FaRTy1billion[MM] -- I think I still have a couple dat files to finish, and people have complained about save games being broken with it D:

O)FaRTy1billion[MM] -- not as big of a pain as updating the static arrays in SC's code, I imagine

Suicidal Insanity -- FaRTy1billion
FaRTy1billion shouted: Suicidal Insanity dat files are easy though :( datext just scales the file to the new number of dat entries, and then gets rid of silly things like restricting only certain IDs having certain properties (mostly to make it easier for scaling)
Well I have static arrays and consts for the lengths that are used in dozens of places, just a pain to update. And many dat files have like 3 or 4 different lengths that they use
