We’ve been hard at work preparing for the release our Radiant modification & other mod tools enhancements, but before they can be released, we needed to update Game_Mod at least one more time. The old version has a number of rather annoying bugs, and was missing a number of features that would’ve made using the mod tools (including Radiant) rather irritating. Today, we are releasing a somewhat large update for Game_Mod which contains a number of badly needed improvements and bug fixes. It’s also worth noting, (especially for those who are waiting patiently for Radiant, etc.), that this update was developed alongside working on the other tools, Radiant, and the other tools, have not been forgotten and are approaching their initial release.
