    Mallet Map Editor - Browser Tile-Based Map Editor

    Access it here: https://slayerofdrosophila.github.io/homepage/ - Browser-based! No download!

    This is not a totally finished product is pretty darn finished by my standards

    Inspired by the Easy TF2 Mapper by toads_tf, this browser-based map maker is a great tool for people who don't know Hammer, for quick prototyping for experienced people, or just for fun. For you people it will probably be just for fun.

    Place prefab blocks into a 3D grid (which you see 2D slices of). Each block is 256^3 hu. The grid is currently 17x9x10 but can be changed easily.

    Each square can hold every prefab in it at the same time, if desired.



    Current prefabs include:
    Wall
    Shutter Door
    Ramp
    Spawn Room
    KOTH Point
    Medium Health/Ammo
    Light
    Floor

    Maps can be exported as VMF or as a JSON file to be loaded later.

    Planned features:
    More gamemodes (CTF / 5CP / A/D (maybe))
    Grid resizing
    Skybox


    Fun fact: I called it "mallet" because it's like a hammer but weaker and less precise.

    This is a cool program!

    Here's my little test map. I added a glass-window wall, and made some red/blue dev texture walls. Maybe those could be prefabs? I played it with bots it was endearing. :p

    Also it would be great to see a ghost-image / onion-layer preview of the floors below the one you're currently looking at. I had to keep flipping between the floors to remember where all the walls were below.
