V0.6xx Series
I decided to start new series of the builds. Editor is now quite stable and most maps are now made using FAF Map Editor. All bigger core features are already implemented. Its in much better state than when i started releasing 0.5xx builds.

Units
First iteration of units are now in map editor, so you can now try to add units to your maps. It was designed in cooperation with the creators of the coop missions.
In next releases I want to work on improving that tool and units itself. I want to add wreckage reclaim counters and display of information about selected units (their army, group, mass, energy, HP, DPS)

TerrainType
Zkov created tool for modifying map TerrainType. This is useful for selecting particle effect of units moving over terrain and also defining unpassable areas.

Project cleanup & workflow changes
We want to clean up sourcode and make it easier to work for many developers. So far I was working alone and that was not a big issue. Now, when editor is more popular and more people wants to do something in it.
I also changed how changelog is written, to be easier to find interesting changes.

It support unit groups and areas, but missions need to be scripted in script.lua file manually. Don't know how to do it exactly, you need to ask people who make missions or coop mission map.

Well, I'm trying to use it to load a mission I was working on earlier. It's stuck on Loading map.... (Loading units 1/3103)
Edit: I turned it off and turned it back on again and it is working now

I downloaded and ran the editor but whenever I try to open a map it says there is no files in whatever pathway I've told it to go to, and default doesn't work either.

Edit: I fixed it, just had to tell it to pen through steam>steamapps>common>Supcom FA. Great work!

Make sure there is _script.lua file in your map and it named the same way as its configured in scenario.lua (edit with notepad). If its missing, then you can copy it from any standard multiplayer map.

Is there a way to make the ACU spawn points and terrain symmetrical automatically, or do you have to do the same thing to the other side of the map manually?

That is the core feature of this editor. Press Symmetry/Symmetry settings... and chose symmetry that you want to use. Now everything you do will be symmetrycal. Works with every tool.
