For anyone that has ever thought it'd be cool to design levels for a game: I've got your back in this latest feature dump.

If you want to try it for yourself, feel free to send me a message! I'm happy to connect.

The workflow of level design as it stands is:
1. Make a model in Sketchup (or otherwise, but Sketchup is officially supported), save to a .dae
2. Load up the level in game, reiterate on the model and reload until satisfied
3. Modify the generated .xml file to add, remove or change spawn points, lights, the skybox etc.
I'm hoping to make the process more fluid and intuitive down the line, but this is a good start.

A first public release will hopefully be ready in a week or two so keep your ears perked!
