BZWTools is the name of a plug-in for the open source 3d modeler blender that allows it to read, write, and edit BZW formated files

Overview

BZWTools leverages the existing power of blender and extends it to allow it to be the only full featured map editor for 2.0 map features.

Development

BZWTools was written by Teppic in the python programing language to work with blender. Teppic maintains a website dedicated to the project. While the project is not maintained by the BZFlag developer community, Teppic is active in the community, and BZWTools is considered to be the most full featured way to edit BZW maps.

Use of blender in the future

It is expected that all new map features will be added to the blender plug-in as they are developed in the future.
