EasyED

Post by makemeunreal » Wed Dec 13, 2017 1:59 pm

EasyED is an extension of the Unreal Dungeon Maker by de Jongh.

What is this Dungeon Maker stuff?
A program that let's you create maps so easy it feels like usin' Paint.

What does this "extension" mean?
Well. I added a lot of really useful, pre textured prefabs, with custom icons and so.
This makes it even more easier to use.

People use Unreal's built in editor to make all these awesome custom made, levels, campaigns.

Using UnrealEd is not that hard as it may look like. I remember launchin' it for the first time only to get totally embarassed. Seeing the blank viewports, the horde of buttons made me pretty frightened, so did it frighten others.

This program offers a lot easier yet more basic way to make your own maps and publicate them so does it encourages you to try UnrealEd and make something more advanced.


Here's an example map I made about five minutes ago, using the "ancient-prefabs":

The whole process took me 'bout 5 mins. I didn't even think 'bout a nice layout or anything like that, so note that more advanced stuff can be created too!

How does the map look in EasyED? (Unreal Dungeon maker)

It really is like drawing in paint, needs a bit of "space-sense" tho which is another great thing to have in real life.

We can get a lot of new maps from people who found UED too hard.
The problem lies in diversity.
I could use a few more hands importing prefabs into EasyED. I'll show them how.

I never used it but the basic idea is quite interesting for building less complex maps.
just a question. I've download the latest version of this tool from Oldunreal website (http://www.oldunreal.com/tools.html). well, after opening software, I noticed that toolbox did not contain the brushes I see in your screenshot ("Ancient_xxxxx" brushes). where did you get these ? where can I find them ?
I tried to update resources (Extras ---> Update resources) but the operation failed (henry00.ftpaccess.cc cannot be resolved)...this website is definitively offline ?

cheers,
Pietro

The version you can find there has a lot of bugs. "Hallway" won't even work.
The one the screenshots are from is my own version with prefabs added by myself, and some bugs fixed.

-creeping lurker bumps thread-

i'd love to mess around with your version of the program. i remember trying the original and getting fed up with it very quickly, so your version looks like a lot more fun. think it will bring me back to the old days of timesplitters mapping :P

Reminds me of Wolf3D's editor (although it probably works more like Doom map editing).

Anyway, did you do that GUI yourself? And what GUI toolkit did you use?

Well. It's a heavily-updated version of UDM, with a ton of new features(gui as well) as I have the basic sourcecode from the author.

yeah man why not upload it to moddb or at least mega or mediafire or something, i've been really interested in trying your version.

EasyED is an extension of the Unreal Dungeon Maker by de Jongh.
Why is that in super small font at the beginning of your post?????
