Hi, Chris. Given that there's currently no map editor for MI, and the open-ness of the map format, I've been considering writing one myself and releasing it on the forums.

There are a few things I'd like to ask:
- Firstly, is this okay? I wouldn't want to step on any fingers or anything. Basically, do you mind?
- Secondly, assuming it is okay, would you like to see in-progress versions before they go anywhere public?
- Thirdly, are there any gotchas with the map format that aren't currently documented on the forum? Any characters not allowed in descriptions, for example?

I think that's about it.

Not at all! I'd be thrilled.

Feel free to show it to me as it progresses if you like. Don't feel obliged either.

No gotchas that I can think of. International characters are fine as long as you use UTF-8 encoding (Mayhem almost always uses UTF-8 internally). Remember to support rifts as well as planets. Pay attention to UI design. That's all the advice I have.

Good luck! Smiley
