Soon
I started working on units. I already have code that can load all units with their blueprints, models and textures. Still i need to spend lot of time creating tools to manage them. Lot of work need to be done before I release them, but we are slowly getting there.
I was also in meantime working on water waves. I want to release easy tool for generating waves on map, with few good presets. I know how to display them, but still need to find a way for generating waves.

0.520 looks and feels really good and heightloss seems to be fixed

bugs with 0.519:
it is now possible to connect different types of marker togehter like amphibious and land.
it seems any alteration on the script file(like default options for the map) dont get carried over when creating table file.
saving as v60 still results in map not loading.
play map still same error 5:0000065434.
when painting heightmap really fast now, the shadow is not updated in realtime anymore.
0.520
importing/exporting stratum mask is broken
i often paint heightmap with 0-4 brush strength, actual painting strength is way too high now when painting with small brushsize.
painting with 0 is very important because it the primary tool for filling holes and retaining terrain.
painting near the mapborder has a very high fps impact, both shown here:

a hotkey for rotating brush would be awesome.

I've made map using this editor recently and making new one right now. So far i really like it. Thank you for developing this software.

Here are some issues i've encountered:
-can't create new map from scratch ( have to create it in official editor first);
-low fps when painting heightmap on border of the map;
-can't remove and move decals in list;
-sometimes Undo command not working when placing markers;
-ARMY_9 and NEUTRAL_CIVILIAN appearing in Armies menu by themself;
-names of path nodes causing small problem: map in lobby defined like map without AI markers ( for example LandPathNode_00 should be LandPN00, WaterPathNode_00 --> WaterPN00, AmphibiousPathNode_00 --> AmphPN00, AirPathNode_00 --> AirPN00 ). But AI using them fine.

Looking forward for new updates. And sorry for broken English.

Thanks guys! Thats lot of feedback and it help me a lot.

- Painting near borders has already been fixed.
- Just hanged default path node names to correct ones (but this is actually FA and FAF bug, not editor, but since fixing them is not that easy, then better just change these names)
- If you cant create new map, then please send me editor log after that happen. For me it works fine, but i got reports that its sometimes not working
- Just changed that connection, so path nodes of different type, can no longer be connected (but can be disconnected)
- Shadow/Lighting/Normalmap of terrain sometimes not updating is now fixed

- Editor is not changing anything in script file. Its scripting file, not simple values file like the other ones, so making parser for it is hard and risk. Right now editor only change script file when creating new map, or creating tables.
- Importing/exporting works for me, tested on few maps. Can you explain it more? Maybe some examples with maps
- For filling holes "Target height" is a great feature. Strength should not be 0, i will change that. Minimum value is 1, even if UI was displaing it as 0. I reduced strenght for values lower than 20, so now it should give more control.
- Yes, rotating brush will be great, but current implementation is not allowing for that. Updating brushes is slow and laggy. Maybe in a future I will find a way to do it better.

i can confirm when starting editor from clean install,clicking on create map does nothing,
changing the name to sth. else helps as a workaround.
also base height seems to have no effect.
deleting all registry entries has fixed the import/export mask button doin nothing problem.

filling the hole in the video with "target height" would result in changes to the cliff right next to it,
thats why "minimum height" is far superior method as it has been the case in the official editor.

I've noticed some bug with this case: when i'm pressing Create New Map button, editor creates empty folder with map name and same "Map folder already exist" error is occurred.

EDIT: Now it works, i don't know what i have fixed, but some times it happening.
