DarkRadiant is a customised version basing on GtkRadiant designed for use with the upcoming Dark Mod, a Thief-inspired modification of the Doom 3 game engine. The project is open source (written in C++).
Massive improvements have been made since development started: a good deal of the code has already been refactored, improved or fully replaced by superior code.
The goal is to provide the Dark Mod fan-mission community with a capable and easy-to-use editor. To achieve this, specialised plugins are being developed to assist Dark Mod mappers with tackling the complex mission creating tasks - we already have Dark Mod-specific plug-ins for editing Stim/Response, Objectives, Difficulty Settings and Conversations.
Here are some key features of "DarkRadiant":
- Highlights include the new or improved browsers for textures, models and skins as well as sound shaders.
- Texture Manipulation tools have been vastly improved and make seamless texturing a matter of seconds.
- A completely new U/V editor for patches is also included.
- All Inspectors have been redesigned/rewritten.
- Light volumes and vertices of projected/point lights are draggable and so on and so forth.
- OS: Windows Vista/7
- Doom 3
