Can anyone explain to me, or point me in the direction of any documents explaining a little more about how UFO AI uses radiant?

I understand that the maps are developed in radiant and then somehow UFO:AI magically plops them ingame. Does UFO draw on any other quake elements?

HOW DOES IT ALL WORK!?

Thankyou please.

Seriously, you'll find most of the answers in our wiki.
Feel free to ask questions about everything that is NOT documented there/not understandable.

I had a look at the technical documents on there prior to posting. It's mostly proposals. O_o

Although having had a look around elsewhere, I have seen a few other examples of how it's done.

You want a pipe line?

[Radian] <-> .map (file for design) -> [ufo2map] -> .bsp (optimised file) -> [UFOAI]

Most of games do the same
