OOK, Once I Owned a Kestrel, is now being revamped. Previously, it was to be released solely on iPhone and iPad. Now, iPhone, iPad, and other mobile devices are dropped and it will be primarily a desktop project. Welcome to the new OOK. Enjoy.

For the love of play-on words, and perhaps the need for a good way of mapping the OOK universe, I have created and nearly finished Universal Layout. It's fairly simple...

Shift+click to add systems or objects
Ctrl+click to remove them
Option(Alt)+click to edit a system's layout
Cmd+click to move an object.

Right-clicking an object will let you edit the object's details. For systems this is only the name, but for objects within a system there are other options.

The few features I have left to add include copying objects, icon-detection (based on supplied object type) and a combo box(drop-down menu) for the object type selection. Additionally, I have a few graphical bugs to fix. At this point the editor is around 95% done and I am proud to present it here. Sit back, enjoy, and let me know what you think.



Coming up in the near future - In-game map generation from the completed Universal Layout app.
