KEd
KEd
Current version:1.0
Developed by:User.pngJernejL
Type:map editor

KEd is an extended version of Moomapper programmed by JernejL, with help from the community at GTAForums.com. A stable version of KEd is available and no more development is expected.

Some users feel the tool was not perfect but it had far greater capabilities than any other tool at the time. A newer tool called "MapEditor" (normally called MEd) is becoming a likely replacement for KEd, particularly as MEd features GTA SA support.
