Fellow C&C entheusiasts, modders, programmers,

For quite some time now, I have been working on an ambitious map editor for the Command and Conquer classic titles: Tiberian Sun, Firestorm, Red Alert 2 and Yuri's Revenge.
During its development I was able to develop myself as well, challenge new issues and work with a very old, yet popular game.
My life has come at a point where I am no longer able to work on this massive project myself.
The back-end of the editor is largely set up and ready for integration into the rendering engine. Yet this big part of the editor, which has to be a very efficient engine, is too big of a task for me alone.

That is why I am asking for your help. What I am looking for is people who are willing to contribute to a new map editor.
The aspects that need working is mainly the rendering engine. Basically that has to be made from scratch. Whatever gets used for that is fine, be it SDL, OpenGL or DirectX.
Other contributions are welcome as well.

The code is on GitHub.
Undoubtedly some of you may disagree with the current (state of the) code, which is good as it can only improve the overall quality.

Some details:
- Language: C/C++
- Frameworks: wxWidgets

Please let me know if you are interested so that hopefully the editor will get back on track.

As someone who makes maps but doesn't want to learn yet another programming lang at this time, I can at least offer interface input, drawing/manipulation glitches or issues I think need more elegant solutions, and I even have suggestions on a debug-mode vertical view for accurate tile placement on complicated maps with lots of occlusion.

RA and TD use a different editor entirely. That, and TS and RA2 DID come out during Westwood's time, so they do count as classics (but it's a stretch)...

Yeah, but they aren't what I would call "the Command and Conquer classic titles" #Tongue
