VIDE "Advanced Map Editor" Plugin

DanB has just released even another great plugin for Virtual-Environment aka VIDE.

Features:

-Select/copy/paste/flip large areas at once
-Fill large areas with a single tile, or with a repeating pattern of tiles
-Delete cells on the map
-Remembers the flip state when pasting a tile
-Set the palette to be used for individual map cells
-Play around with the different palette configurations to see the effect it will have
-Keyboard hotkeys for all options
-Set the unused bit 11 of each map cell. I figured it can be used as a flag for starting positions
of objects/enemies or for map collision detection or whatever
-Options to easily see which cells are flipped/have a different palette/are flagged
-As you move around the map, the current tile can be highlighted in the charmap below
-'Replace all' option. Copy and paste a single tile, and all other cells using that same tile will be
modyfied as well.
-Unlimited undo steps for all map modifications
-Animation preview. Set up a sub-sequence of tiles for any char on the charmap, adjust the
timer interval in ms, and watch the action as it would look on the VB!
-Complete source code (ugly, but well-commented) is included as a Visual Studio 2008 project (Hi RunnerPack )
-I'm also including all source code for my previous VIDE plugins (*AS IS*)

I see the original link is broken, but you can get it on the
VIDE page still.

I should, I'm the one who made it (the plugin, not VIDE)
Is there anything in particular you're wondering?
