Stuff you need Edit
- A Supreme Commander map editor. There exist two versions:
- Some sort of texteditor, to edit the script files. Notepad is ok, but you'll be better off with Notepad++ as it features syntax highlighting.
- A lot of time >.<
Stuff that comes in handy Edit
- an image manipulation program, to edit/mirror your heightmaps and texture layers, e.g. Adobe Photoshop, GIMP, Corel Paint Shop Pro, or paint.net.
- a few other tools and pieces of information that are available on the FAF forums, for example those here.
