There's not much point in me reiterating myself, though I did say we don't need a fanfare but at least releasing the Darwinia editor for free so it may be used for Multiwinia by those with the patience to do so would be a step in the right direction. I don't have a means to get it, for one, because I'm broke and in the process of getting a job, and for two, because I do not have a credit card. That said, it all boils down to this. I bought Multiwinia years ago and was told there was a map editor shortly on it's way. Years. I really shouldn't have to buy another of their games just to access a map editor that just happens to work for Multiwinia as well when I was already told Multiwinia was really meant to have it's own editor from the get-go. To be honest, with incredibly indepth knowledge of the game's functions, I'm sure someone's bare minimum would be a text pad to make maps. But that's hardly the point. Even if the current Multiwinia editor is the Darwinia editor with very minor changes, that's at least something approaching the promised editor. Much more than my current notepad is, anyway.
TL;DR, To me at least it reflects more poorly that were approaching a quarter decade and still have nothing at all approaching the promised editor, than if we at least had a start in that direction. The current map tools released without fanfare and with an explanation to the public that they are very incomplete would suffice for those like myself that would delve into it regardless. The average Joe just wants to play maps anyhow, not be arsed to make 'em. :X
EDIT; Oh, and I meant to say. I really do appreciate you guys at least conversing about the issue with me. Better than me just throwing my two cents out with no response.
