Hi! New and wondering about tools

First off all I want to say hello :smiley:

I’m new to JME and certainly gonne play around with it to eventually create a game I have in mind for a long long time.

I’m use to mapping for games like half-life and half-life 2, and wondering if there is any tools to create a map that looks simular like hammer editor valve has.

I’m trying to create a fps game with maps like the ones hl uses.

Now i’m trying to find out what would be the best way to create maps ‘simular’ like that.

Cause I don’t need maps like terrain but just indoor maps and offcourse later in the development I would need outside to.

Hope somone can give me a direction I could look into

Simple FPS Creator seems like the exact thing you are looking for. http://lmgtfy.com/?q=Simple+FPS+Creator. Nah just joking :wink:

The jMonkeyPlatform has a Terrain Editor. Take a peek in the docs. That could sure proove useful for outdoor terrains; unfortunately i wouldnt know about an easy way to create indoor levels.

My first guess is to build your level using the SceneComposer in jMonkeyPlatform: In the simplest case, creating Planes for walls and floors and sticking them together and adding materials to them. Of course that means manual work, and thus not a tool-approach exactly.
