The highlight of the Modderís Pack is the powerful ChromED editor. Itís a complete solution for creating and modifying fully functional multiplayer and single-player maps. It offers two modes of operation. In Simple Mode (default setting) it offers a step-by-step wizard which guides users through the process of establishing all basic parameters of the map and features a simplified interface. The Advanced Mode boasts full capabilities of the professional tools used in the development of CoJ: Bound in Blood. Itís recommended for experienced modders and offers unrivaled power and control over the content.
Together with ChromED, Techland provides an exporter for the industry standard 3D Studio Max, allowing users to import their own models into the game (custom textures, animations, effects, music and sounds are also supported).
In addition, the editor puts all the content of Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood at its userís disposal. All the assets used to build the game can be rearranged, combined and used in new creations.
