Just a short update to state that this is not dead, but I have been short on time and energy lately, which has hurt progress. The plan is as follows: Finish the editor itself (currently working on the last item on the TODO list) Make a new mod for Colonization containing just the editor Add the ability to set a path to the mod to edit xml files in Convert the mod to BTS Things shouldn't be too time consuming once I reach step 2. The code is designed to be moved between mods with minimum effort. It should be noted that I recommend using the Colonization version of the editor (step 3) even for modding BTS mods since the BTS exe lacks drag-n-drop support. Step 4 is a slightly inferior version of the editor meant for people without Colonization. With standalone versions of the editor, I'm no longer convinced it's a good idea to add this editor to existing mods themselves. It does make the DLL bigger and it serves no purpose for the players, just modders.
