STV: Elite Force .map Source Released
9:58 AM | Ben Boffey | Comment on this story

James Monroe of RavenSoft has updated his .plan file with news of the release of the source .map files for Star Trek Voyager: Elite Force. Although there are currently no official Mac tools for viewing and creating such maps, PC developers can use their tools to examine them and discover the tricks of the trade. This is a great opportunity for those interested in map and level development to see how the pros do it. As James says:

If you've always wondered how we managed to make the "awesome swinging pendulums(tm)" or wondered about the finer points of scripting NPCs, grab these files now, and examine away!
While, as we noted, this will not bring Mac users any closer to making their own maps, it will significantly enhance the chances of third-party maps and mods for Elite Force being created; it is our assumption that, as with Quake 3 Arena, these maps will also work with the Mac version of Elite Force and extend gameplay for fans of the game.
