GIANTS Editor 4.1.8 is part of the GIANTS SDK. You can purchase the SDK here:

Or wait for our next game to be released and purchase that ;-)

Oh okay then its to expensive for me. Why aren't there some Free Versions? like the GE 4.2 or other?

Christian Ammann - GIANTS Software 04.01.2011 21:37
If you buy one of our games you get the GE for free with the game.

Tobias Reichenbach (Unknown) 05.01.2011 15:50
Yes thats right but when is the release? maybe in april/may ..Before ls11 the newest GE was here for free download. Why did you change this?

Friedrich L. (Unknown) 05.01.2011 19:18
The GE 4.1.7 wasn't for free download, only the FS11 includes the GE 4.1.7 for free ;)

Christian Ammann - GIANTS Software 06.01.2011 12:34
@Tobias: Skully is right we release the current GE version at that time with each game. That is always the GE version that we used to build the game in the first place. GE 4.1.7 is the version for LS 11 modding. 95% of the new things in GE 4.1.8 are for convenience and not new features anyway. For us its important that we can change the GE and the i3d format for future games. If we would support all released games with the most recent GE version we couldn't do that.

Thanks for the help

Little question for you. Why can't I download those older versions of GE for free? Like 4.1.2 or 4.1.6.
Because when using 4.1.7 it often says to me, that the file I try to open has a wrong .i3D version. And previously, I got rid of that whit saving the file again in the 4.1.2 or 4.1.6. But now, after a stupid mistake when I formated my Harddrive, I don't have them anymore!

Strange that when other software companies sell a game with an editor, then subsequently bring out a updated editor it is usually offered to users FREE not sold for over £120, and when you think the game only costs £40 at most this is rather excessive and could put people off modding this game altogether and without mods a simulation game like this is doomed to die. This surely is not in Giants Software's best interest, or am I being naive.

Christian Ammann - GIANTS Software 23.01.2011 23:18
@James: We don't sell the GIANTS Editor for £120. Its the GIANTS Engine SDK that is £120. With the SDK you can create your own home brew games.

What version must be used for the Gold edition of FS?
I bought the newer version of the SDK but cant save my maps after making changes

Richard Van De Ruit (Unknown) 23.02.2011 10:27
I have bought the SDK version and I import my map from the data file everything seems ok. When i want to edit the terrain etc. I cant see the "terrain editing" window and after doing all the changes i can't save the i3D file overiding the origional. I to have tried saving it in another folder but when you open the game none of the changes have taken effect.
I would hate to think I have wasted $'s for nothing. I am running Windows 7 64x anyone out there to help me?

Kamion Matris (Unknown) 24.02.2011 20:59
Hahaha, don`t buy it. You just did biggest mistake! Ok, now its a warn to other...

Christian Ammann - GIANTS Software 25.03.2011 15:16
Hi Mike,

Why do you need a Linux version if you have vmware running?
