The patch (update1.1) is out and although Ive tested our past mods and they work has anyone seen anything Instant Action or Single Player that has been changed in regard to editing, any code changes to make modding these .lvl files easier?

I think we all agree patches are better than nothing, I just want some feedback on what everyone thinks of it and the apparent lack of modding ability tools ...

The only way we will see tools to make our own content is if somebody in the comunity makes them. Maybe lucas arts will release something when they release the expansion pack but that will probably be 6 months down the line when the game is loosing popularity.

Don't forget Halflife 2 comes out in just over a week and everyone and his dog will be modding for that, so i don't hold out much hope of tools coming our way :(

Ok, from the views of a Modding leader, who's waiting for the SDK's to be released, i'm F@#kin pissed off, because our mod is at a stand still, except for the modelling....

but from the views of just a gamer, i'm still pissed off, i was bored with this game within the first 3 days.... i haven't played multiplayer much, cos there are no decent servers running in Australia, and until this new patch, the lagg.... but if the SDK's were released there would be new maps, mod ect...

i'd just like to get an estimation from lucasarts of when they plan to realease the modding tools, thats all, it's not asking too much, right...?

Cheers,

(keep up the good work guru and team!)

well, it appears we're getting a new official map, and with it they say we'll be able to add new maps to instant action. as of right now, there's still no official word on when we will have modding tool, but modding is coming right along over at Gametoast.com (http://www.gametoast.com) . check there to see the real modding news, we already are almost to the point of a funtional mesh extractor, and, as you know, we've made a texture extractor, and i've managed to get 2 lost vehicles back ingam and i'm working on being able to expand mission.lvl to include tweaks in levels (like replace names with longer ones)

Never fear, mate!
RE: decent servers running in Australia!

Im sure with the recent 1.1 patch release there are hordes of nice Aussie servers running. I've seen a few already...

and with the news from devs it appears true that with the new map we will all be able to make/show our own maps in the instant action area...this is VERY good news and proves that this game hasnt been released and shelved, kudos to LA , pandemic, and secret agent fred...hehe

Instant action?

So, the maps won't work in MP?

MP mode ("duel") is instant action as well. He meant that you'll be able to play the map in MP and in SP instant action.
