Hello.

Does anybody know how to make level editor? I want to make my own because Blender is too hard and there is no any free and good one(and I don't own 3DS MAX or Maya). I have googled for tutorials but nothing was found. I have took lessons for C++ and I almost handle the basics. :)

I know this is the hard part but I don't want to give up (yet).

I use OGRE for graphics rendering and i have asked about this at ogre forums but nobody has answered.

If you know what elements your level will contain you could start by defining the data structures that will represent it. Then you code something to display that data and handle input in such a way that it allows you to place stuff where you want it. You also have to decide how are you going to save your level to disk.

That's pretty much how it's done.
