Attention Mappers!


One thing I've wanted to ensure since I began is to offer a version of the mod that will work with Worldbuilder for anyone who wanted to tinker with maps and scripting and whatever is wanted. I also viewed this as an option so that anyone who wanted to create a map based on the mod would be able to. And if you wanted, I would include any created maps within the mod. I feel this helps modding become more of a community event than just a smaller team.

With the 1.05.06 release I'm also releasing it in a _.big format with an asset.dat and such to view everything in WB. So below you will find a link to everything you need to get a RJ-RotWK version of worldbuilder.
