Really depends on what you mean by "map." To have game-specific data, you'll need your own program to build your levels with some sort of interface allowing you to put in events, drop in entities, etc. to make the actual 3D map data, you can use most model editors like Blender, Maya, etc. and then export them to some format that jme can read (OBJ, FBX, etc.).

Hello heX-

Search this forum for : "2D Map editor"
It is a map editor from juddman and it is pretty good.

There are so many different ways of implementing a map.
The map editor you refer to have a tile-based system which
means that each tile is basically a separate image.

pseudo code:
1  
2  
3  
4  
5  
6  
7  
8  
for(int i=0; i < images; i++)
   image[i]=readImage("tile"+i+".gif");

int GRID=16;
int TILESIZE=32;
for(int i=0; i < GRID*GRID; i++){
  getGraphics().drawImage(image[map[i]], X+( (i%GRID)*TILESIZE ), Y+((i/GRID)*TILESIZE), this);
}

Hope this helps.

Best regards from

M.E.

I used to play Conquer Online all the time. Like I was a total addict when I was 14, prob spent 6 hours a day playing at least for like 6 months.  Building a game like that from scratch in Java is going to be one hell of a project.  If you use some kind of abstraction or engine you'll lose low level customization and control.

If you really plan to use it a little bit, I will have to implement the export into OBJ WaveFront format so that you can load your levels in JMonkeyEngine 3. My tool is very rudimentary but it allows to create simple maps very quickly. I will write a tutorial about it in some weeks (or months?).

You're welcome. I'm not yet able to support Counterstrike maps but maps with a single floor and orthogonal walls work fine, it is a bit limited  Sad
