Sony has Released an Open-Source Level Editor Development Tool

By   /   Sep 3, 2014

Sony has released an open source Level Editor development tool that will allow its users to create their own video game maps, levels and even a whole campaign.

This new tool from Sony is built from the ATF, which is short for Authoring Tools Framework with C# based Level Editor that uses DirectX 11 to render the 3D environments.

In addition to that, it has a ‘WYSIWYG interface’ that allows you to edit Terrain, edit properties, place objects and create as many levels as you want for your favorite video game engine.

Following are some of features that will help you in constructing the video game’s levels:

  • Work with a variety of file formats
  • Associate assets with game objects
  • Position, rotate, scale, and snap game objects precisely
  • Edit game object properties
  • Show or hide groups of game objects to unclutter the view as you work
  • Construct Linears (lines and curves)

However, to use this tool, you will need to have Windows 7 Service Pack 1 or higher and the DirectX SDK.

If you are interested in trying out this new level editor, then Sony is providing you an opportunity as it is available to be downloaded right here.

If you are looking to get more information on Sony’s new creation, then check out Github’s wiki page about this level editor.
