Does anyone know where the sdk map tools are, or indeed if there are any that have been released that are currently up to date that can be used with either Maya 2016 or 3dsMax 2010 x64 or above? Thank you.
AFAIK Map tools are only given to official 3rd party devs by ED.

Hi QuiGon. Thanks for the reply.


Somehow that doesn't make sense for ED to be doing that as they have already created a sticky and WIKI thread promoting map creation within the community? Surely if they were only allowing official 3rd party devs to do it then all those official sticky/WKI threads would be deleted?
Plus the old official tools are still freely available for download. Maybe they still work? But I doubt it very much considering their age and all the DCS World updates that have been released since then.

I really would like to know for sure what's happening with the Map SDK Tools.

They did that? I was not aware of that. Where can I find it?

I dont think the wiki is ED controlled and/or maintained, either way, that map making info is for the old version and probably should be removed, or marked as old.

If you want access to the new tools, you need to apply to ED for a 3rd Party agreement.
