EDIT: zolop 11.22.2011: Add Bethesda/TES games to the mod links...MAya PLE no longer able to download from developer and XSI Softimage Mod Tool no longer able to download/supported

Well since we can broaden the community involvement in the mapping department and modification in the games that we play, why not list the tools for these games.

Feel free to PM me Links for the Tools For Map Modification/General Modification of the games we play. This is alphabetical order for your Viewing Pleasure. If I list the tool multiple times, it is because the tool can be used across multiple games.

-Map Editor tutorial (download the version 4 Map Editor for both games SC/SCFA in the GPG Vault)
NOTE: You must put the editor in the bin folder of Sup Com to make it work. Maps made by the editor also work with barely work with SCFA AI, because the official editor does not include the map markers for the Forged Alliance AI. ... r_tutorial

Use this by the communuity member called hazard, on your saved maps. The AI won't function completely without the FA markers.
