Follow up - Tread 3D for Mac
11:46 AM | Toby Allen | Comment on this story

Yesterday we posed the news that Tread 3D, a multi-game map editor, may be ported to the Mac OS. We contacted one of their main programmers, Nick Randal, to obtain details on this port. Randal told us that either they will find a Mac programmer or they will try and develop this port in-house, although that will reduce the chances of tread 3D coming to Mac:

We do not have a lot of information at this point. The idea is not set in stone but we are going to give it our best shot. We are looking for a talented Mac programmer to do the port. If we cannot find one we will attempt to do the port in house. Since we are not Mac programmers this will lessen the chance of a successful port.

There is some possibility that the team behind PakRat, a Mac 3D model viewer for the Quake series, will help out with this conversion; the two teams are currently in discussion. Meanwhile we have received word that the Mac OS X port of Q3Radient, the Quake 3 Arena map editor, is still in the works, so watch for that as well.
