Level Editor

Welcome to the level editor’s documentation. Here you can learn how to use the level editor.

Overview

The level editor is a fast to learn and easy to use tool for creating levels.

Level geometry is represented as shapes. Each shape is made out of faces. A face contains a polygon, and material properties: name, projection UV plane, and transformation.

Entities are used to describe things other than geometry, for example a light source or a moving shape. There are two types of entities:

  • Point entities, which use a position.
  • Shape entities, which use shapes.

The level editor uses two kind of views:

  • 3D view
  • Grid view

Levels are saved in human readable JSON file with .lvl file extension.

The level editor also has a general level compiler. Compiled levels use .clvl file extension.
