Tile Atribute Editor

TileAtrEditor

Mod Type: Mod Tool

Author: Klofkac

A tool for editing TILEATR*.BIN files where tileset attributes are stored (they mean for example where vehicles or infantry can or cannot pass, where you can build etc).

Feature set:

  • Open both tileset image and TILEATRx.BIN file
  • Quick open feature
  • Tiles are marked with a color which is made of RGB combination of attributes they have.
  • Filter tiles by their attributes in several ways.
  • Copy attributes from a tile. Set attributes to single tile or multiple tiles at once. Add or remove selected attributes.
  • Check block preset coverage feature – it can help you with setting up block presets for custom tilesets.
  • Editor attributes

Additional attributes used only by the editor, not by the game. They tell the editor which tiles are for example sand or rock tiles and are used in Fill area and Auto-smooth rock/dunes edge feature. Modified TILEATRx.BIN files having these attributes are distributed with D2kEditor.

Mission Editor

HuGbu

Mod Type: Mod Tool

Author: MVI

Feature Set:
* Supports editing tech levels, starting money, index allocations, diplomacy, tileset references and time limit
* Also supports modifying, adding and deleting of events, conditions and event-condition mappings
* Supporting AI segment exporting and importing (via new .misai files)
* As of 0.3 supports preset building types (as well as unit types since 0.1)

Future Work Will Include:
* Colored diplomacy icons for the three diplomacy types
* Support for unused event types, current build only works with event types present in the campaign mission files. However I believe there are a number of other event types that are possible, this will require more research as there are no working examples of how to use these event types present in the game’s mission files.

Special thanks to jbsplash, DaxxXyrax, Devasta and Gruntlord6.
Please note: This is an Alpha release, it is unlikely to be stable and may suffer from bugs. I recommend you back up your mission files/installation before editing.

Map Renderer

sBmIVCG

Mod Type: Mod Tool

Author: MVI

The Dune 2000 Map Renderer allows the user to load a map file and export a PNG image displaying its terrain, spice, buildings and starting units.

The Map Renderer is bundled with a folder containing PNG images of each tileset and will automatically pick the correct tileset image for a loaded map if there is a matching mission file at the same location as the map file. If you modify the game’s tileset or add a new one, you will need to make the corresponding changes to the tool’s tileset folder.

The map renderer is not intended to replicate the in-game look perfectly and there are some relatively unimportant differences in how the game and the Map Renderer display: walls do not perfectly align; spice has hard edges and buildings do not display the concrete beneath them.
