#Ultimate Suite for GameDevTycoon#
The Ultimate Suite is a bundle of components and tools aimed to simplify and extend the development of expansion modules for the game “Game Dev Tycoon” by Greenheart Games.
##Ultimate Module Editor (UME) for GameDevTycoon##
The application development is progressing quite well and there are plans to release many exciting new features in the future, as long as the community response makes it worth to invest our time in the development of UME.
** Latest Introductory Tutorial **
Operating Systems: Windows XP, Windows 7, Windows 8
Libraries: NET Framework 4.0
For usage on a Mac:
Install and run Windows using a dual-boot approach (like Bootcamp) or a virtual machine software like Parallels.

The application is written in C# using Visual Studio 2013 and the Microsoft .NET Framework 4.5.

The development of this tool is the result of the motivation and inspiration of a wonderful community and all the great people that I meet here everyday. Without this great game and without your motivation, I wouldn’t have any reason to develop UME. This work is for giving something back and express thankfulness for this game and this community!
Let me also especially mention some people, without them this wouldn’t be possible:
friend, daily inspiration and an important part of this project FA/CK ;- )
friend and constant inspiration (although he calls me a slacker : P)
inspiration and developer of the mod which accompanies me whenever I develop something for GDT

And last but not least, all the people who uses UME and motivate me everyday to continue to work on this project.
