The in-browser mapping tool.

    A project I've been working on for a while, and will likely continue to strip down and rebuild as I learn more and find better approaches.

    This tool is an in browser map maker that allows you to draw room outlines and building blue prints then automatically generate geometry and entities and export them to a VMF.
    Features I will eventually include:
    • Complete Geometry Generation
    • Objective Objects
    • Lighting Generation
    • Displacement Generation
    • Detail Generation
    • More procedural tools!
    ===============================================

    To Use:
    1. Extract the zip file contents wherever you like
    2. Open building.html in Chrome/Firefox
    3. Make sure Hardware Acceleration / webGL is enabled
    The UI starts with a world, which you can add buildings to.
    Buildings are composed of:
    • Floors (the outer wall)
    • Rooms (inner areas)
    • Portals (windows/doors)
    Floors and Rooms have a drag-able border that you add/delete points to with the add / remove tools.

    ===============================================

    Controls:

    Left click: edit / drag
    Middle click: select
    WASD: fly around
    Arrow Keys: look around
    Scroll: fly forward and back

    You can also select from the hierarchy on the right

    ===============================================

    1. Click Save

    4. Save like you would any file
    To Export:
    1. Click Save
    2. Right click the newly opened tab

    ===============================================
    Feedback on the interface itself as well as desired features are fully welcomed.

    Currently I am working on:
    • Stairs/walkways/platforms bugs/updates
