Quake3 BSP CompilerCommunity Forums/Developer Stations/Quake3 BSP Compiler
| I have found this GPL tool, which generates a BSP file from a Quake3 MAP file.|
This would remove any id Software licence issues, as long as the BSP format is not licenced itself, is the compiling tools which have restricted use. It is intended to use with 3rd-party engines which uses the BSP format for levels.
MAP3BSPC doesn't produce fully compliant .bsp-files, and may never do. The aim is at the moment to generate enough correct information into the BSP file so that 3rd party Quake 3 renderers can reproduce the level correctly.
Hmm.. a bit of wait and see, I guess. Definitely worth keeping an eye on though. Until Maplet 2.0 comes along and we don't need BSP's any more ;)
