Community App [Open Source] Map Editor 1.3.1

A simple yet powerful Map Editor for King Arthur's Gold! Officially discontinued but Open Source!

    King Arthur's Gold - Map Editor
    An easy-to-use yet powerful Editor to create and edit Maps.
    Java is required.

    Every Block, Item and Vehicle currently in the game is in the editor. If this is not enough, you can simply add Blocks, Items and Vehicles to it by changing one file.
    Use given scripts to cover dirt with grass, to generate gold or to place bedrock at the bottom of the map. Or create your own script with simple JavaScript.
    Work with 3 different types of symmetry (None, Normal, Team) to create maps fast and easy. Change pen sizes and import maps.
    Cross-Platform, Portable and light!
    Works on every OS with Java installed. Does not need to be installed and is lightweight.
    And it grows!
    While still in development, the Editor grows and is extending.

    The main view of the editor. Tiles, Items, Entities (Blobs) can be placed here.
    To control it, use the left and right mousebuttons to place and delete blocks. WASD or the middle mousebutton to move and drag the camera and UP/DOWN arrowkeys to zoom.
    Uses one button to export and import maps and to configure the editor and another one to select blocks.

    A zoomed view. Shows the pen using size 3.


    Another map. Created with some water, a raft and two mines demonstrating the third symmetry type, Team-symmetry which basically changes the "color" of the item based on direction to the center. A blue mine for example, which is placed on the left side, turns red on the right side. This sure works with a red mine and/or the right side. Remember that normal symmetry won't change the color of the item.

    The screen for block selection.You can either just click on any name to select it or type in the name of it. If you add a block, item or entity yourself, it will be listed here, too.

    The new sidebar (Big thanks to RadioActive!) can be used to select blocks. The green arrow can be used to hide and open it.​
    The editor in it's current state is fully functional but lacks on some polish regarding export and import.

    Q: There are blocks/items/entities displayed as colors?!
    A: These blocks/items/entities currently have no image. This will be changed very soon!

    Q: How do I make scripts?
    A: Tutorial will come. Look at the example scripts ;-)

    Q: How do I move the camera / zoom?
    A: Use your WASD keys to move the camera, the middle mousebutton to drag the camera and UP / DOWN (Arrow Keys) to zoom.

    Q: What are you currently working at / improving?
    A: Check out the ToDo.

    Yup, looks good, but the interface - I mean the window with blocks could be better designed. It could be smaller and always visible on the left/right. The field of the editor should cover the entire window (except the list of blocks). I know well that this is the first version, and you Numpad_ may not have enough skills, but something like this below would look great:
    Anyway good job and keep it up!

    Wow, this is one hell of a nice map editor! Gj there buddy, the devs should totally use it in-game and upload your maps directly to the rescource section of the forum. Devs should give a look at this thread, so beautiful.

    Haha Thank you. I've been working on it for quite some time, so yours might get nicer too ;-)

    I've been waiting for something like this for ages, ever since I started map making. I didn't mind using Paint.NET and that but it can get quite annoying and time consuming so kudos to you!

    This looks great! Will definitely cut on the map making time, as less time playtesting is required.

    Holy tits, I love you so much. Gold generator, grass generator, all the tedious bits covered. You sir, are now my favourite person in the world.

    Edit: Does it currently, or will it ever, allow the placement of an item on top of a background tile? (Ex: placing a bush on a tile with stone background behind it)

    Haha thank you very much <3
    The placement of an item on background is currently not possible because of there can be only one color at one position on a png-file. However, KAG automatically generates background tiles at likely positions. (If a lantern in a cave is surrounded by dirt backgrounds, the game automatically places a dirt background behind the lantern. The problem here is that this is not very controllable :-(

    I have been asking Geti for layered .png maps for ages, it's probably not going to happen though.

    Sad that this is not happening but I guess it's not very important for Standard-Maps.
