What editors do you use for Transcendence xml files or the image files and why?

Personally I use Textpad for editing the xml. It had searching in multiple files at once and bracket matching (the two things I use the most when making stuff in Transcendence)

I mostly just use the stock Wordpad on Windows, but I track down bugs in Dreamweaver.

I use photoshop for images, but I don't do much image editing.

XMLs - notepad++, syntax highlighting, search/replace, tabs, parentheses hilighting/shows which one goes to which one, saves the tabs on exit. and file extensions must be defined by the user - letting me make the extension anything so it can be uploaded on the UTF

images - blender for the 3d ship facings, gimp to put the facings together, microsoft paint to make the shield image.

For XML's, I use Wordpad.

For image manipulation, I use PSP and for rendering meshes for facings I use Vue.

Vim/gvim for the text editing, and...

Graphics work? What's that?

Not much modding recently, I used to edit everything with Notepad2, but on Windows I use Notepad++ and on Ubuntu, Gedit & Code::Blocks.

How is Blender for ship image creating? I want a good image maker/editor to create a custom ship (a customized Pyro-GL from Descent with flames :D) and a good Weapon frigate. (I'm reallying getting into the modding Open-source games now...)
