The main opsticale for making a Great projects are bad IDE's
They dont think outside of the box when making them.. and they dont use todays techonology

If i would set a new project for myself it would be making one that rocks..
but first i must finish my game editor.

Hey HC, are you talking about Blitz only compatible IDEs? Have you also tried the newest ones that does support Blitz compilers?

Im talking generally although i dont know enough IDE's to be sure im correct..
All I want to say is that a Good advanced IDE would give you more flexability in viewing a large project..
when you deal with small projects its no big deal..
but on the scale of what im doing it is..

Ive learnt to get along.. but i promiss you it effects the quality of my editor.

BlitzCoder commented:

Ok I see. You can check out Sublime Text 3 and Atom.IO which are now 2 of the most popular IDE's in the coding scene.

Sublime Text 3 (Paid, Free Evaluation, No Expiration):

Blitzmax Integration:

Atom.IO (Free)

Blitzmax Integration:

I have actually used both and they do have modern features that you can look for in an editor. I am leaning more into using SublimeText3 because of the straightforward and simple interface compared to Atom. There's also a plugin for Blitz3D/Plus (aka BlitzBasic) with Sublime3.
