I just dug up another ziped program I found deep inside my thumbdrive, but this one I thought was worth while! :)

This is MW2EDIT3D, I believe it was made by those two brothers nicknamed "Hammer Wolf" and "Jammer Wolf". This program I got came from in the Mercs download section somewhere, I'll have to grab a link sometime tomorrow.

The whole purpose of this was so people could construct their own MercNet maps using an easy to learn UI and a drop-and-place 3D world. I was just tinkering around with this, I found out that it is not limited to just the Mercs PRJ, it can also use 31cc or GBL.
When in "3D mode", you can just point, click, and move/rotate any object you please to wherever you want. Just about every option is customizable, very fun, and again, easy to use. And when you have compiled it into a MWM file, you can unpack it to get those AREx.BWD files so you can be on your way to making your own map. I am not sure if the proper OBJ tags come with the geometry you place, it should if it is using the 31cc PRJ. But give it a try! It's fun! :)
