Mac Tropico OS X, Editor Status
9:08 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

A patch for the PC version of Tropico was recently released along with a small map editor for the game. Since Mac users often get the short end of the stick when it comes to editors (Tomb Raider Chronicles being the exception), we asked Phil Steinmeyer of PopTop Software if it would be possible to include in the almost-complete Mac version of this sim game. Here's his reply:

I'm not sure about the editor for the Mac - I'd have to port a couple
utility files that do some file manipulation for the editor. I'm on the
fence about this - I'll see how long the rest of the port takes.
So, while not a direct confirmation, at least there is a possibility. We'll keep you posted on any new developments with the editor. Phil was also able to give us a quick status check on the rest of the Mac port:
I'm currently working on the OS-X stuff - things are still going pretty
smoothly overall.
While this is no major change since we last heard from him (see our interview posted last week), it's great to hear the Mac version is doing so well. Look for Tropico to be completed in the coming weeks. The game will be published by MacSoft, and is expected to be out by Macworld New York in July at the latest.
