RAGE Tool Kit

The Bethesda Blog announces the RAGE Tool Kit is now available on Steam for those that want to work on modifications or other new content for RAGE, id Software's recent first-person shooter. Here's word, which notes these are "complex and aimed towards 'technically sophisticated and adventurous' modders":

Later today on Steam we will be releasing the official tool kit for RAGE – the same tools used to create RAGE and it’s DLC, The Scorchers. From the game’s world building tool, idStudio, to game maps and assets, the kit provides everything you need to get started with modding the first-ever idTech 5 title.

Interested? Before you start downloading the hefty 35+ GB file, the RAGE team has provided some documents to read. As described in the welcome document, these tools provided are complex and aimed towards “technically sophisticated and adventurous” modders.

    Welcome to the RAGE Tool Kit

    RAGE Tool Kit FAQ and EULA

To download the kit itself, be on the lookout for the RAGE Tool Kit in the Tools section of Steam (the same place you’d download Skyrim’s Creation Kit).

On behalf of everyone at id, we look forward to seeing your creations. If you have something to share, shoot us an email or share it with our id Software Facebook and Twitter accounts.

Virtual Texture really is (well, could be) the way of the future. But it's easy to see the role it played in damaging RAGE. Taking hours to see changes in a level is going to slow down content production to a halt. The dev systems couldn't have been very stable either. It must have been a pain in the ass to work on this stuff. Now the modding community can suffer too

The problem with new technology is it always comes with the tool issue.

Ok you know what, I'm DEAD wrong. There was this game a while back, I think it was called Doom 3. It had this new unified lighting that took away the step of designers trying to painstakingly get lighting right and generate lightmaps. Just throw some dynamic lights in there, move them around until it looks good, and you are good to go.

Of course there were sacrifices in rendering technique from that, but at least it didn't cripple their ability to make a decent game.

They left that problem to their design decisions.
