Games with downloadable official map/level editors

Group Description

This group isn't for any game editors on their own, official or unofficial, but games that have an editor where players can create their own maps or levels for either singleplayer or multiplayer gaming, but was published on the game's official website or was created by fans and then officially supported. They were most often downloadable individually, but sometimes they came as part of an official modding tools package or SDK. Whether created maps/levels are tied to a game copy or can be exported and shared with other players doesn't matter.

Editors included with the game must be able to do at least one of the below mentioned actions for game to be added to this group:
  • editor can create a playable map/level in singleplayer or multiplayer
  • editor can create new scenario, goals and object placement on one of the existing game maps (terrain itself cannot be altered)

If editors include only below mentioned features, games should not be added to this group:
  • editors can create new world objects
  • editors can create or edit existing characters and NPCs

Example of some games that would qualify:
  • Quake III: Arena -- a map editor is included in the official modding tools package that was made freely downloadable
  • Thief: The Dark Project -- an official map editor (DromEd) was made as a downloadable archive, and was included in the Thief: Gold re-release
  • Command & Conquer: Red Alert 2 -- the de facto map editor (FinalAlert) was created by a fan, but the game's developers hosted it on the company's official FTP server and made changes to the game to support the maps made in the editor (as of patch 1.005)
