Resources on level editor creation?

Recommended Posts

vinnyvicious    692

I'm looking for a few resources on creating level editors, specially helpful libraries or tutorials on the topic. I'm planning to write a small 2D level editor, something similar to Tiled, as a learning exercise for my game. But i also intend to write a level editor for a few 3D experiments, so, it would be nice to see some info. Thanks people! :)

The book "Game Coding Complete: Fourth Edition" has a section that covers setting up a C# level editor for 3D. It shows how to interface with your game engine .dll file (which was made in C++), how you can place objects, etc. I drew from this setup myself and it's worked out well so far!

No, just no.

 

Picking MFC to do anything in this day and age would be the pure definition of insanity.

 

If you must use C++ for your tooling ( which generally is a bad idea ), then use Qt.

Absolutely what Serapth said. Either Qt, if you really want to. C++ is very nice and all that.

Or, as I would personally recommend, C#. It can't get any easier than that. Making an editor is generally not the fun part, so the fact that it's easy to do can be a huge deal.
