Is there editor or World Builder that allows you to create a terrain (world), assign different textures to different locations and then let you place objects (meshes). Essentially a world builder.

If not, how does everyone else create their terrains, textures, and add objects to the terrain??
Do I have to build everything seperately and combine them programmatically later on?

Maplet is nice, but it appears to only be able to handle indoor environments.

Have a look on www.blitzshowcase.com I'm pretty sure there are several around.

There's HomeSpun. I used to have it at Blitz Showcase but removed it from there. Give me a day or two and I'll get it re-upped and post a link where you can get it.
Watch this space.


I just checked and there's so much work I'd need to do
to get a copy of the latest(unfinished by far)edition
to an uploadable,useable condition...
Would some kind soul who has a copy of the HomeSpun
zip file that came from the showcase please provide
a link for it so people can still get it?
I'm looking at first quarter 2004 for the new version
to be ready.

Try this world builder out LuckyPhil... It's called CSP WorldBuilder 2.0 and it will do what your asking to do!
This is a really cool world builder and is right up your alley!

Hey guys,

Some of these links are great! Many thanks.

I can now spend the weekend building my new world. ;)

Lucky Phil.

BTW, the CSP Worldbuilder 0.2 might be a bit unflexible. Because of that I have released the Source some time ago:
BTW2 - you need the BBGUI Include Files too:

Also: the heighttexturing might look not so nice. Have a look on Dr.Av's Texture Transition Creator at

@ jfk

I recently used your CSP WorldBuilder 0.2 and found it to be almost the same thing I was designing awhile back in darkbasic but I more or less abandoned the editor due to other issue's with darkbasic that just pissed me off and now with Blitz3D I find that I can do what I wanted to do and even more.. But I gotta' tell ya' here now... A many thanks for the source to your CSP Worldbuilder 0.2 as I would definately would like to take a look at it and see your fine coding at work here! BTW too! Is the BBGUI still available for download? I know you said the include files are at the above link above in your post, But does the include files also include the documentation explaining how to write GUI-windows for other applications and such as Im' currently looking into finding a decent GUI for my new upcoming world editor called QoolEdit v1.0
Any information where i can find the documentation on how to use the BBGUI would be greatly appreciated very much!
And thanks again for the above links you posted!
I also do believe I sent you an email..

Thank's again!
