Default Tool to edit / modify static objects in a zone?

I'm looking for a tool that would let me go through a zone like echo.s3d and move / remove objects (ie: the objects outputted by listobj)

For example, with echo.s3d, there are 611 Placeable Objects throughout the zone: rocks, plants etc. I'd like to remove these entries:

Placeable Object 234 @ ( -422.98, 874.73, -47.25 uses model 64 VSBSTOOL301_DMSPRITEDEF
Placeable Object 235 @ ( -435.67, 874.82, -47.49 uses model 64 VSBSTOOL301_DMSPRITEDEF
Placeable Object 439 @ ( -429.82, 869.49, -47.90 uses model 6 ECTABLE301_DMSPRITEDEF


To get rid of the table and stools at that location.

Is there a tool that can do this? I know they are contained in the zone.wld file from within the zone.s3d. I can, of course, use S3DSpy to extract this file, but I haven't found any tools that allow objects to be moved or deleted.

Give me a little bit. I'm in school right now but I should have a basic GUI tool ready in a few hours. The operations required are fairly simple as far as editing WLD data goes.

Well, turned out to be more complicated for some zones, at least for removing object placements.

For now though, a quick and dirty tool: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/...ct%20Mover.zip

Should be able to change coordinates for objects in any s3d-based zone. The remove option will be greyed out for zones where things are more complicated, for now. Haven't confirmed that edited files still work right in game but I think it should be fine. I recommend backing up any files before editing them, though.

Haven't put the code up anywhere but it's all just scripts except for the exe, which is just a shell that loads the script interpreter and gui library before handing off to them entirely.

Let me know if there's issues.

There's no 'Open' or 'Load' option. I modified loader.lua to add one to the menu, to call Loader:Open() which gives a dialog, but ultimately that simply calls Loader:Load() which simply sets Loader.path but doesn't actually load anything.

I do see S3D.open() in s3d.lua, so I might be able to figure out how to hook that in

Whoops, accidentally left in my local settings file. And forgot to put Settings.SetSearchFolder in the menu.

Redownload, should be fixed.
