A couple, yes. But both quantity and quality would take a huge step up with some tools available. :(

That is to say, no offense to the makers of those maps, some of them are pretty nifty and you all should be commended just for doing it in the first place all things considered.

You do realize that the process for making most of those maps was just make map in darwinia and then paste some fairly standard extra stuff into the text file? Currently its actually harder to distribute maps than it is to make them.

Of course I do. My point is merely that even if that's the case, the Darwinia editor should at the very least be made readily available. Honestly, there's really no excuse for it to not be. An editor was promised, and not even a stopgap measure has been provided, even years afterwards. The only possibilities that have been brought to light has been a result of the community tinkering, not an official "look, we don't have the editor ready yet, but if you just can't wait.." (to the extent of my knowledge, I'll admit, anyway).

Obviously debating it doesn't do much good but I feel like shutting up about it accomplishes even less. There's just no good reason for it being the way it is right now.

I'm pretty sure that it would take longer create a map-editor only version of darwinia than to actually finish the multiwinia map editor.

It's good that they're at least showing signs of heading back into the past to add a final content release for Defcon, because something tells me they are going to target Darwinia afterwards and FINALLY finish the modding features mentioned here: http://forums.introversion.co.uk/darwin ... php?t=3657

This also gives me hope that after Darwinia, the Multiwinia map editor will be released at the same time (if not a little bit later), allowing for the finalization of the three games.

At long last...

Indeed, to paraphrase... :P

This makes me wonder, are they going to remove assault from the pc version of Multiwinia, or will it be kept?

I have no clue about IV's plans, but my personal guess is that you should just give up all hope for an official patch. I think the small group with its source code mods might get you something like this, but if you're not willing to pay for it, I'd start moving on.

No, and to quote Jelco:

So, then. What kind of time table are we looking at?
