I've read in the forum that levels will be exportable for DB Pro. In what format will they be exported (.x, other)?

Would you be able to use them with other development languages that support .X files, BSP, etc.?

Thanks,

I'm not sure that the format will be .X - I think it might be DBPro's internal mesh format (.DBO), or maybe the source code for a FPSC level loader. To export to .X, Lee would have to write a .X file system - which is probably not something that would take him too long, however he might not consider it important enough to include just yet.

It could be in .fpm, with lee either supplying a tpc or snippet to load it.

I don't think its just one model, as FPSC levels have other properties besides their geometry.

But I don't think those are relevant anymore once you export it for use with DBP.

While we wait for FPSC, does anyone know of a good level editor that can export .X or BSP file formats? I am looking at Cartography Shop, but not real happy with it at this point. I am a programmer that is artistically challenged (to say the least). I really need a good editor I can easily create rooms, create doors, stairs, etc. and have a decent level quickly so I can spend my time working on the code.

The reason I am looking for .X or BSP formats is because I am trying a new SDK for Visual Basic and it support importing .X and BSP formats.

I've looked at MilkShape, Cartography Shop, and have Hammer but not really tried it out yet. Anyone know of any others that might be better for the artistically challenged?

Thanks,

Aoneweb,

Thank you very much for the list. I will check them out. A quick glance over each of them looks like I will find what I need.

Thanks again!

Thanks again. DeleD is currently my favorite. I really like how easy it is to use and it sounds like they are working on it to make it more powerful (adding light mapping).
