Placing objects in TresEd around high-detail terrain gets complicated, the only fix being to go into Terrain Edit Mode while moving the instance. This means having to go in and out when fixing multiple objects, or dozens...

And then you also run the risk of misclicking and damaging your terrain as well in the process.

I have a question. As I know Trespasser was reverse-engineered for ATX, would this be possible for TresEd too?
Is there any way to hack in a way for the TresEd to view the terrain by default in Terrain edit mode but without the possibility to edit it? And be able to select objects while in it? It would help a lot as the terrain don't show properly in normal view, specially not big ones, while it does in Terrain edit mode. Like locking TresEd in Terrain Edit mode but with the possibility to select and move objects?
Would this be possible? Like making a special exe only for this?

Anything is possible, but you need to find someone willing to do it...

Oh, and in Terrain Edit mode, the terrain isn't "smoothed out" while rendered, that's it, I'd say...


Could you take a look?

Probably. I guess Andres never got around to fix all the issues with that.

Tips for modders: TresEd allows you to save objects in groups so you can later select that group if you want, which mean you can "organize" a level and it is quite helpful if you don't wanna reselect for example a whole building mesh by mesh if you wanna move it later and have the risk of missing something. This function can be found at "View->Show Named Selection..." and is really helpful. The groups you make are stored in a ".tresed" in the same folder as the level and uses the level name. :)

..For example, if you import a building and want to be able to select just-the-building later, a named selection can let you do that without lots of selection hassal.

Future (probably never-will-happen) request: Look for the TPA files inside the TresEd folder instead of where the game is installed.

In the zip below, tatu. Make certain that the folder containing TresEd is labeled 'Tres_Ed'. I tried it on my desktop and C:\Tres_Ed and it worked fine. Just toss your tpas inside the editor's folder. The only catch is, is that if you're loading up a retail level, you have to select the grf and pid file after you select the swp. For stand_alone levels, that isn't necessary (you'd just select the swap file as normal) since all level files are in the same location -

What's this? You hacked TresEd, or had Andres at some time made a custom version on request?

I'm guessing he did some sort of hex-edit to redirect the folders. Or he rebuilt TresEd from scratch with the intention to add a bunch of new features? :P

Oh thank you very much!

I ignore your instruction and put it in my "Level Editing" folder at "D:\Trespasser\Modding Suite\Level Editing". Put the TPAs there and it worked fine as well. I also didn't have to select the grf or pid. It work just like the "normal" TresEd. :D

THANK YOU!

My ex-wife used to do the same thing (note the ex). :lol: Anyways, it's like T.I. surmized, it was nothing more than a little hex editing job. Unfortunately, without the actual code you really can't change TresEd in any substantial way. Glad it worked for you though, tatu, and you're welcome. ;)
