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.

I used to play Mayhem Intergalactic before it was cool.

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
