Wrp Editors: Tools and Resources
« on: 28 May 2005, 16:16:19 »
This thread lists tools and resources relating to .wrp file creation and editing which are available in the Editors Depot and elsewhere, where appropriate, along with links.


WrpEdit is available from the Editors Depot.

This was the first .wrp editor that was available for the community.
It is still in its first beta form and it will not be updated, however, it is still a very good program.
It is more powerful than many give it credit for, it is also, to my mind at least, the easiest to use although laying roads and fences can be a little tedious as there is no automatic road or fence laying functions and no copy/paste functions either.

Visitor is the .wrp editor from BIS; it was used to make the default game .wrp files.
Buldozer is the viewer that is used by Visitor; alternatively, both are available from the Breathe site.


This .wrp editor seems to be quite popular, although it doesn't appear to work very well, if at all, on Win98 or WinMe systems.  WinXP is recommended if you wish to use this one.

It comes with a fairly comprehensive manual which has lots of additional, but relevant information included in it.
WrpTool is available from nekromantix.com.
