Map Editor is almost Beta!

31-Aug-2015

Map Editor! Steam and PC builds fixed!

Minor update to fix the issues with Steam and PC builds getting on the wrong version. Everyone should be on the same patch now and you can see the notes for that just below. Sorry for the trouble!

Map Editor is almost Beta!

A new skin is available in the Shop: BlackOps Neo! We're getting closer to completing the BlackOps set, only a couple left. There might even be a sneak peek at the next BlackOps in the Collections page of your Inventory.

The Map Editor continues to be improved with this update. You'll immediately notice the UI changes, but there are lots more features and fixes to be found. Canyon tiles can now be raised or lowered by clicking and dragging while Elevation mode is active (support for more tilesets coming soon). The Paint Mat button will allow you to easily draw roads and paths onto the terrain. You'll also find more scripting options as requested by map makers. If you have ideas for new maps that the editor doesn't support yet, don't hesitate to let us know on the forums.
