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.
