Tread 3D Coming to Mac
6:14 PM | Michael Eilers | Comment on this story
MacCentral has posted a report on Tread3D, an amazing open-source tool for the PC which allows users to edit and create levels for a slew of 3D games including Quake, Quake 2, Hexen 2, Kingpin and soon Quake 3 Arena. Early this Summer, Tread3D author Joe Riedel promised that a Mac OS version of this tool was forthcoming -- however, as the report details, this deal fell through:
Back in June, Riedel reported that they were working with a third party to port Tread3D to the Macintosh. Apparently things didn't work out too well in that arrangement. Riedel explains. Read the rest of this article for more details. We look forward to seeing what Mac level designers can create with such a tool -- if the quality of the Marathon maps and scenarios we have seen is any indication, there should be some amazing results.

"Here's the scoop on the Mac version of Tread3D," posted Riedel recently. "The deal that was made and announced weeks ago fell through shortly after. I decided to port it myself, and I must say it is very fun. I started about 8 hours ago. It's going to take at least 4 weeks. Remember, that is at least 4 weeks, not definitely 4 weeks. So I leave you with that. Tread3D will be on the Mac cause I'm doing it."
