Title: Edit CW3 maps in external tools
Post by: DoubleSwitch on August 09, 2020, 06:34:28 am
I'm getting started in map editor, and the lack of a option to select/copy/mirror areas of terrain is getting frustrating...

So... I checked the files, and I figured how to open the .cw3 file, get the xml data, and copy it to a excel sheet

The problem I face now is doing the reverse, seems that the .cw3 needs a specific compression method (LZMA:23) to be readable by the game

Anyone else tried this? Do you have a way? Thanks
...and sorry if this isn't the correct placed for this question, looked like the best option to me
