I am currently planning to go to quakecon 2001. I just heard that some new software is going to be released and also taught at the con. The people who made 3ds max have made a new level editor for almost any game. The level editor will be free. Exept if you want your engine to run it. They will charge for a licence for the software and give you the sdk. After that you have to write alittle script and boom you have a level editor for your engine. The script works just like the 3ds max script does. The price for the license hasn''t been released but i plan on talking about it with the Project Designer at the con. It looks really cool.
