PR: Drop Team Beta Scenario Editor released

Armchair General

Beta Scenario Editor released!

TBG Software and are thrilled to announce the release of a public beta version of the full featured Scenario Editor for "DropTeam"!

"Dropteam" is TBG’s exciting new game about mechanized combat in the far future , based on the powerful 3D Demeter engine developed by TBG Software used by the U.S. Army Research Labs and Northrop Grumman featuring real-world physics, and compatible with PC, Mac (OS X and Intel Macs) and Linux !

This brand new Scenario editor allows for the creation of entirely new worlds , maps and missions, including Physical Properties, Skybox, Ambient Sounds, Particle Emitters, Elevation Data, Textures, Terrain Types, Fluids, Game Types and Objects and more.


This takes the already powerful phsyics engine to new heights and allows players to create brand new maps of up to 1000 square kilometers, including all deformable terrain, its own unique physics (gravitation, atmosphere.) and more! Dropteam is already using XML files for modding and reads data from professional GIS (Geographic Information Systems) packages such as ArcGIS and Terragen, and as such is becoming one of the most extensively moddable game packages available. An expansion to the Sci-Fi themed base game covering World War Two is already planned.

The Scenario Editor is available as a free download, and is even available with source code in an open license to encourage users to create new exciting missions and battles for DropTeamT – mechanized combat in the far future !
