The TrenchBroom Level Editor
Today I am releasing TrenchBroom 1.0 for Windows and Mac OS X. TrenchBroom is a modern cross-platform level editor for Quake.

Features
- True 3D editing, no 2D views required
- High performance renderer with support for huge maps
- Vertex editing with edge and face splitting
- Manipulation of multiple vertices at once (great for trisoup editing)
- Smart clip tool
- Move, rotate and flip brushes and entities
- Precise texture lock for all operations
- Smart entity property editors
- Graphical entity browser with drag and drop support
- Comprehensive texture application and manipulation tools
- Search and filter functions
- Unlimited undo and redo
- Point file support
- Automatic backup
- Support for .def and .fdg files, mods and multiple wad files
- Free (as in beer) and open source (GPLv3)
- Cross platform (Windows, Mac OS X and Linux supported)

Check out a video of TrenchBroom in action here.

You can download the editor here.

If you would like to give feedback, please do that in this thread. If you find a bug or have a feature suggestion, please submit them at the issue tracker.

If you are wondering where the Linux binaries are then sorry, but currently there are none. The Linux version has a few problems which I could not fix before this release. I will get working on those right away so that the Linux version should be available in a couple of weeks, too.

Finally, I would like to thank necros for all his work over the past year. Without his tireless efforts, TrenchBroom would simply not exist. Or it would suck.

Alright, enough of this. Have fun with the editor!

Update: 2.1 here:

TrenchBroom 2019.2 
TrenchBroom 2019.2 is out with md3 support and some fixes and performance improvements | https://github.com/kduske/TrenchBroom/releases/tag/v2019.2 
TrenchBroom 2019.3 
TB 2019.3 is out with several bug fixes: https://github.com/kduske/TrenchBroom/releases/tag/v2019.3 
Hiding Vertices/edges/faces Behind Brushes? 
Is there a way to do this, or in the works? The screen can be a real mess when working with a lot of grouped brushes. 
I Don‘t Understand What You Mean 
Please explain in more detail. 
Re: I Don‘t Understand What You Mean 
Ah sorry, I see there's already an issue open under "Draw occluded vertex handles shaded #1568" detailing pretty much the same request. 
 
imagine how cluttered it got when Vertex, Edge, and Face nodes were all displayed at the same time. 
Quake 3 Bug 
I am sorry, may be I am just stupid but seems like I found a strange bug. When I open quake 3 .map in TB and then save, it turns into quake 1 map (I use windows version of TB 2019.3). I asked few people to do the same on their PCs and they have same bug. Seems like TB converting quake 3 maps into quake 1 format when it opens it. 
Also Quake 3 Bug 
Also wierd bug. Not all md3 models are displayed in TB. Check it out, here are some models that I use:


https://drive.google.com/file/d/1bc81Dhe8Twj02pVVvaMhC0HuH6j-6QgG/view?usp=sharing 
Wad3 Textures 
Seems like wad3 textures can not be loaded in TB 
Q3 Maps 
As per the output in the log, TB does not fully support Quake 3 maps. Quake 3 maps are Quake 2 maps with two additional structures: Patches and brush primitives. Neither are supported, so when you save a map, these structures will be lost.

TB also won‘t display models that consist of multiple md3s that are connected by tags, or models with external skins.

The Quake 3 config expects tga, jpg or png textures. WAD3 is a Quake 1 thing, if you want to use it, you need to create a custom game config. See the manual. 
Wad3 Support 
Got wad3 textures with this confing
"textures": {
"package": { "type": "file", "format": { "extension": "wad", "format": "wad3" } },
"format": { "extension": "C", "format": "hlmip" },
"attribute": "wad"
}, 
So I Hear There's A New Quake Engine-based Game Announced. 
Might be a good opportunity to hype up Trenchbroom and get new people interesting in Quake modding and mapping. ;) 
Agreed 
I think this release will be huge for our community. 
Rotating 2D View? 
Is this is secret feature or a bug? It's happened a couple of times now while I've been editing but not sure how. 
I Don‘t Know What You Mean 
How does it rotate? Did you take a screenshot? 
TrenchBroom 2019.4 
As If It Was Rotated 180° 
I'll take a screenshot and create issue if it happens again, as I'm not quite sure how to reproduce it yet. 
Oh, I Was Using 2014.4 RC1 
I'll update and see if I can repro it. 
 
I'm using Trenchbroom for my UE4 game and I just wanted to say thanks to you SleepwalkR. This is the most intuitive and fun map editor out there. The fact that its open also allows me to tweak stuff to my workflow and it works great. 
Thanks! 
Glad it is helpful to you!
