Also, will this map editor be like Gen 3, where you can make new areas just by placing tiles, or do all new maps have to be made in a 3d model editor?
Well, to put it mildly... the only thing that works in the same way as Generation III is the movement permissions, where they have square-by-square movement, as for maps... you have to create the maps through an object editing program, I'd recommend using 3ds Max 6, 7 or 8 with the Nitro plugin, or even Maya 7 with the Nitro plugin for Maya 7. 'Cause you see... the game uses 3D models, unlike the games on the GBA where they just used only parts of textures to create maps.

Always focus on the present, best thing to do! Never look back into the past and never worry about anything bad of the future!
