@LaFayette said in Should we support YAML for Maps?: In essence, XML was an early standardized format that grew out of HTML that was meant for structuring data for one computer to send data to another. It was never really intended for humans to interact with it and write it by hand (the idea was there would be GUIs to help you do that). Most likely this has always been the case for TripleA too. Ideally, you would have a map creator covering everything, and you would use that for creating and modifying the XML, never actually opening it with a text editor or anything. I believe this was the plan, except that it never happened (there have been several aborted attempts over the years).
