Z_Tools (beta version) - create single plyer map for Z

Post by BallWin » 2007-02-18, 21:55

Hi, Z people!

Try the tools - http://GeneralZod.narod.ru/file/Z_Tools_beta_09.rar
It allows to create own single levels for Z. For preparation use ZEditor. Then include Z _ Tools.

Example of a map for Z95 (first level addon Expansh) - http://GeneralZod.narod.ru/file/LEVEL41.rar

I shall write a help later. If it is required... ;)

============================================

The reference to the freshest version:
Try new version ZTools (0.932). Size - 260 kB

Unoff the mod-pack (for Z DOS, Z95) is changed -- now it has version ZTools 0.932). Size - 1.75 mB

Well that?s what I just waited for , i even created a thread where I wanted to know how to make those single player levels (and ballwin answered something that i - as usual - didn?t get^^).
i?ll try it as soon as i can.
thx

edit1: the download-servers u are using are just terrebly sloooooow , with a long "o" ^^.I think any other (free) upload-site would be better than this one.
..downloading with 300bytes/s , what the hell man?^^

Is this Z95 only or is the original Z also supported?

yeah made to replace (right?) original Z maps , just like ballwin did with the example map (replaces level04:desert islands).
So I think it has to work with Z , not sure if it does with Z95...

Detailed help for use Z Tools is placed here:
http://x-strategy.com/help_ZTools_English.rar
http://GeneralZod.narod.ru/file/help_Z_Tools_Rus.rar
The text explains all stages of work on creation of a new single level step-by-step. Is written in Russian, but in the text contains many pictures.
Besides in archive:
- The new level for addon (LEVEL42), is established instead of the second level Expansion
- For an example the same level at different stages of readiness.

The new version Z Tools is placed here:
http://GeneralZod.narod.ru/file/Z_Tools_beta_09.rar

I recommend you to use this version instead of 08. In this version some serious mistakes are corrected.

To ZOnline - I ask to place these files on your resource. Mine server "narod" too bad.

I?ll just try it. All in all it got easier to understand with the tutorial (nice that the pictures are in english), and btw: the russian version of windows looks just overfunny.

So , if I finally got it , I?d like to write a german tutorial ( :shake: )

Jeez! Creating single player maps for Z has always been a dream that has never died up to this day. I'm very glad to hear this is finally possible due the honorable work of some great individuals. :cheers:

I will try it out and let you know about the ease to create maps.
