Duke Builder Unfinished Build

Not sure a lot people know this but a guy named MXD was working on a level editor for Duke3D called Duke Builder, unfortunately the project was discontinued for some reason, until another guy on the ZDoom Discord posted an unfinished version of the Build, here's a video showing the Build in action.

Unfinished? Damn, it would have been really cool to have a level editor for Duke 3D like Doom Builder. I know almost everything about Mapster32, but I'm sure that having a more intuitive editor like that would have been attracted the atention of more mappers.

That's pretty slick. Song is catchy too.

So is it actually being developed, or is it where MXD had left it?

Not sure if i'm just getting old, but I would still prefer the Mapster editor. Personally, I find Mapster to be more efficient at tiling walls, aligning textures, and positioning sprites than using what was demonstrated. Another reason why I never took to the Hammer Editor. Also, wasn't a fan of seeing the focused wall illuminate when the cursor was on it, I found it to be very distracting possibly leading to a lot of eye strain. But then again I'm probably just old. =P

Nice find though, had no idea people were working on an alternate editor. Really looked like they were striving for a more true 3D look and feel.

Is this the same build that can be found here, or is it something unreleased?

https://github.com/m-x-d/Duke-Builder

Also, some interesting trivia on this editor:
The author, MaxEd, was originally the developer of GZDoombuilder, when one day in early 2017, he got really pissed off at users making suggestions and demands he didn't want to implement.
His final post was this:

I think I'll better go and make Duke Builder or something. See ya.


And here we are.

A friend of mine found the Build on the ZDoom discord server, not sure if the link its still there, but i will search it and post it here if i find it.

Edit: so i actually found the build, I'd recommend downloading it before MXD takes it down if it was leaked unintentionally https://app.box.com/...0byosy0z4ds44im

I gave it a quick spin. Very un-mapster, but it seems to work with EDuke32.exe, and it reads existing maps.

Who knows, what will happen with it. For now, it shows a lot of promises. :)

It is the same build as the git repo, and it's licensed under the GPL, so feel free to fork it if someone else wants to continue developing the editor.

So this is true...(WARNING: Drama happened inside the thread), MaxED decided to make a Build/Duke editor after ragequit-ed of his GZDoom-Builder works last year...

EDIT: Doom64hunter's post already nailed it.

Well, looks like it's dead too(he now focused on Quake 2 mod now)...I'm not surprise at all...but Duke/Build really needs more editors for sure...but looks like it's still looks just something like "the curse of Duke" too...

I'm the guy at 3DRealms Forum...

Sometimes, I act like a stupid asshole. I know, and I'm sorry about that. :(
