TDU World Editor


After editing by hand some sectors for the next update of Project Paradise, I thought it could be nice to create a proper map editor for TDU. After all, that's the only part of the game which has never been modded before. 🙂 (and yes, next pp update should come soon, so less pm spam everyone thanks)





Even if it's called "Editor", this tool is a toolbox to export your files in your favorite 3D editor (maya, 3DS max, blender,... any editor as long as it's compatible with .obj) and obviously do the opposite. 😛

This choice as been made simply because I didn't want to make the usage of a cheap and badly written 3D editor an obligation. 😄

.obj has a pretty basic structure making easy to build an object from nothing.
