I thought that it makes no sense that I develop my own map editor when there are others that are already developed. So I am looking for any 3D World Editor, that implements Lightmapping, and that exports files that are easy to parse.
Up to now the only one I found is DeleD Edtior Lite
(http://www.delgine.com/) which is free and has those features but I don't trust very much...
DeleD seems fine, and I would be willing to buy the Pro version (USD $60) but I read in the forums that it has bugs and the site lacks documentation, so I am not willing to spend time and money adapting all my engine to that editor if it's not good enough.
The feature that I am most interested is the lightmapping feature since I am not willing to create all the algorithms for baking lightmaps as I read it's a very complicated topic (altough I couldn't find any detailed tutorials).
I would really appreciate if you could recommend me an editor.
By the way, do you guys use any external editor for your engines?!
Thanks so much!
[Edit: Anyone tried FreeWorld -http://freeworld3d.org- it's half the price of DeleD? What about IrrEdit? I tried it and it's really good but I can't find the documentation that tells me how to parse the files. Obviously they won't post that so that you just use IrrEdit for Irrlicht, but it would be great...]
