Oh and also, you know what would be the single most amazing thing to have in your editor? A layer manager for decals!

So you can create management layers, and select them, then you will be able to only select decals on that layer. Because as it is right now, accessing lower decals is very annoying. If you had created a layer before though which you assigned the lower decals to, then you could later just select that layer and easily select he lower lying decals.

Another great addition would be a list that shows all currently selected decals, clicking on one of the decals n the list once would highlight it in a different color, double clicking the the entry would select it. This feature would be even better than the layer manager.

I dont know how to use system file browser from game. Unity give functions to that, but they work only in unity editor, not in builded app.

Added that decals features to TODO list.

Do you then have the ability to write a console app that could load a map and render a high quality png/jpeg if a map to a file?

Ckitching wants such a tool and will put the hires images in the lobby.

I can load and render png of any resolution, but I'm not sure about that console options.

Need to read if this is possible in unity. If not, then we can create app that only do this. It will take settings from txt and generate file in that direction.

I can also add option to editor - render hires screenshot and save it as preview image in map folder.

but I don't have @faforever.com email

Just found how to get command line arguments:
Code: Select all
string[] Args = System.Environment.GetCommandLineArgs();


So yes, it is possible. We can send arguments to mapeditor and it will start, load map from path, render image and save it and then close.

Done ;)

Starting app with arguments -renderPreviewImage [width] [height] [lua path] [save.png path] will render and save png image. It will be available in next version.

Example:
Code: Select all
C:\Users\ozone_000\Desktop\FAForeverMapEditor.exe -renderPreviewImage 4096 4096 "U:/Github/FAForeverMapEditor/maps/hexagonian_drylands.v0005/hexagonian_drylands_scenario.lua" "C:/Users/ozone_000/Documents/New folder/testrender.png"


Rendered 4k orthographic image of map:

v0.418
- Render image from command line arguments: -renderPreviewImage [width] [height] [lua path] [save.png path]
- Changed texture load from gamedata - its not unpacking and then loading, but now its loading them directly. Thanks to that loading is much faster.

Seton load now in 2s.
Load and render of 2k image of seton takes 3s. Is quite fast now, but i can't find a way to do it in background. Unity need to start its window to be able to render camera.

8k seton render

This is very cool, I tried messing around with super sampling at some point to get bigger overview pictures, but that didn't work out.
