Game Level Builder 2.22 (for 3ds max 3, 4, 5.1, 6, 7, 8, Viz and gmax®) updated:17 Nov 2005

Game Level Builder 2.2 Rated Champion of the Month by Pixel (France) in magazine No. 85.

GLB 2.22 is a tool set for building game levels in discreets 3ds max™ and gmax, It is an essential tool for building Half-Life®, Counter-Strike® and Quake® Levels. Building your level is easy, all you have to do is draw where you want your walls to be created, and then click on the walls where you would like doors or windows placed. Floors can be created with a single click and then copied to make ceilings. GLB2 is very useful for making buildings of any kind in max. You can make pipes or any other loft based object with PipeMax script (included). It's possible with PipeMax to make, Pipes, Tunnels, Arches, Roofs, Stairs, and even any lathe type object such as a hollow sphere or vase. GLB2 also includes 'Handy Cam' a first person camera that lets you walk around your level easily. 'Handy Cam' can be set to create a spline along the path of the camera, which can then be used to make roller-coaster shaped walls or pipes. Another use for this path is to render walk-throughs of your level. Ever wanted to make a fly-through animation of a building but found moving and keyframing the camera a pain, well not anymore. GLB now includes Map Exporter 1.0 Limited Edition. A custom written script to export your levels to .map files in seconds, allowing you to add entities in WorldCraft® or a similar level editior. Map Exporter LE is faster and easier to use than the previously used 3ds2map converter.

NEW features in Version 2.22:

  • Updated Map Exporter LE so map files are now compatible with GTK Radiant.

  • All walls are now made convex, so you don't have to worry so much about making walls turn on the level to stop twisted faces.

  • Floor tool has been improved so that floors created on slopes work more reliably.

  • Holes that could sometimes occur in floors due to a spline not being correctly extruded have been fixed. Floor pieces are now editable meshes, not extruded splines.

03 version just updated for 3ds max 8.

If you're interested in GLB but don't have 3ds max, try getting gmax . (It's free)

Note: Exporting is done through the Listener window in gmax, and so is considerably slower than the max versions when working with large scenes.


Note: You need WinRAR 3.0 or greater to extract these files.

You can download WinRAR for extracting .rar files from .
