Map Exporter AI

A group AI for the Spring Engine, it allows the user to export the map being played as a set of TGA images. The Group AI interface has been deprecated and removed as of 2009, making this project obsolete.

Using the group AI API as a means of acquiring the height map and other map data, the map exporter AI would save the current heightmap, metal map, and a mapconv.exe compatible feature map. In the absence of a decompiler for the SM2 map format, the AI became popular with map builders.

Newer tools such as Spring Map Editor have obsoleted the tool. In 2009 the arrival of the new C AI interface sounded the death knell of the project. The new C API lacked an equivalent for group AIs, as it was deemed anything group AIs could do, was already being done by lua widgets.
