UGEN Sandbox wouldn't be a sandbox if the player couldn't edit objects inside the game. So, our solution is UGEN Map Maker.

Posted by on

UGEN Sandbox can now load far larger maps this month than in november because we have changed the way textures work in UGEN.

Here is (What I think) a large Counter Strike 1.6 map is.

Island

It has been loaded into UGEN Sandbox. The player can then walk around the map.


UGEN Map Maker


Coming with UGEN will be map maker, it is currently a tool that can edit existing Goldsource or Quake maps by editing existing objects or by loading .obj models into the map. The user can also specify spawn points. These maps can then be played on Singleplayer and Multiplayer modes.


Current features:


-Play map maker maps on singleplayer and multiplayer modes.

-Load Quake and Goldsource maps

-Add .obj models to the map

-Add explosives



-Features to add to map maker before release:


-Better object tools (position, rotation, size)
