Firstly, I've changed the name - it's now Omen. This is a better name, but as I'm planning on opening the code up to the community it also removes my username from the name.
I'm working on putting together some proper documentation together too, not in the zip but expect it. Now I need to sleep. Feel free to find many, many bugs!

UPDATE - 23/06/09 - Version 0.4 is now out!
File removed - see newest version above
UPDATE - 22/06/09
It will be out tomorrow - really! Everything is more or less done, need to do some testing then bundle it up. I've work tomorrow, so it won't be out until (Monday) night.
All the features that I said I would add are done apart from tree prefabs (which I will do tomorrow) and animated gif support (which I'm putting on hold for now). In addition, I added multiple views, a dropper, zooming, support for creating maps from scratch plus all the new blocks.
Here's how the editor looks on a Mac:
Here's it in Vista:
It was developed on the Mac and works fine, but is having some drawing problems on Vista so I need to fix that.
Over the weekend I modified a previous program I had written to be a map editor for Minecraft. It's not yet done as there are still some things I want to do with it, but it should be out soon. I thought I'd announce it here as a couple of other people seem to be working on the same thing.
So far OME can:
Load and save maps
Create blank maps
Displays slices of the map as images, and allows scrolling between layers
Allows for drawing in 2d and 3d with round and square brushes with any block type
Can copy layers up and down
Can import and export layers as PNG images (to allow editing in photoshop etc)
Can generate maps from greyscale heightmap images
Prior to release I hope to add:
Support for animated GIFs (each frame representing a layer of the map)
Flood Fill/Paintbucket in 2d and 3d
Block replace brush
A better interface
Control over map properties (size, spawn points etc)
Kinda a cool idea, but hey, DING DING, isn't this game about creating stuff in-game :S?
Damn people are lazy. :3
As far as I can tell the point behind this is creating custom level bases, so instead of having a randomly generated map that you have no control over, you build your own map with this then anyone can build over it. For example, you could build a giant castle and have users modify it in game, or a big city where users can design their own building insides, which would take hundreds of hours to do manually.
<TrueWolves> That's what I meant Iguana, I'm like an Extra+, to just fill in tiny cracks... right?
<Iguana> YUS. <Iguana> BUT WE NEED YOU
