I made lot of changes and fixes in creating new map. It now displays message when something is wrong.
Initial height is fixed, was changeing terrain to wrong height.
There is new dropdown when we can select initial number of players (1-16)
New map will have spawn points for every army, so you can just play it right after creating it.
It will also create "NEUTRAL_CIVILIAN" and "ARMY_17" by default.

thats why "minimum height" is far superior method as it has been the case in the official editor.

oh, get it now why you want paint with 0 strength - to just use mini/max. Just added support for 0 strength.

v0.507
...
- Many changes with water rendering (imports most of water settings like water mask, water color, normal textures, animation, scale, foam)


I have a question: how can i import water settings with foam? I've tried importing water settings from original map with waves ( SCMP_001 ), but it imports everything except waves. Buttons in Waves tool are not working and log file doesn't saying anything. I suppose this tool not working yet.

Waves are not ready yet :/ I want to work on them after units are ready, so right now you need to make them in official editor.

- Path nodes of different type, can no longer be connected (but can be disconnected)
- Fixed terrain normal not updating in some cases
- Fixed wrong minimum numbers for heightmap brush size and strength
- Reduced strength of heightmap brush for values lower than 20 (should give more control)
- Added option "Player count" to creating new map
- Editor now create army markers when creating new map. New map can now be played by default.
- Fixed initial height when creating new map
- For new maps editor will add extra armies "ARMY_17" and "NEUTRAL_CIVILIAN"

Units
Work in Progress units are in this build. They are not finished, but you can move and rotate them. Still have lot of work, but I decided to release new build because some bug fixes.
I'm also thinking if and how to do UnitBrowser. Making full browser will take a lot of time and I need to learn first how to display them in UI. Maybe just field with code name will be enough for now? There are some unit databeses so its quite easy to find it.

impressive, heightmap painting is spot on now.

i sometimes get strange numbers overwriting windows clipboard content.
all units are orientated north to south.
except some are tilted a bit and iam unable to center them with rotation tool.
t3 SAM/t1 pgen appear to be a half grid buildings while in fact they are full grid.
half grip buildings can be build on steeper slope. walls have no limit on slope.

about the unit browser, how about a small scrollable window on the left like the brush shape/markers window.
one dropdown field/button above for race and maybe another for simple categories (defence/base/land/Tier 1.2.3.)
left mouse then heighlights selected unit. left mouse places 1 unit under the cursor. deselecting unit-type lets user drag mouse again to select multiple units.
also ctrl-c/x/v paste and copy.
