Lorenzi's KMP Editor is a KMP editor created by Hlorenzi that started in 2018. It is based on Node.js and Electron, and is available as a free GitHub project.

The editor will automatically load a course.kcl file from the same folder and will display it as 3D world with easy navigation. It can also load course_model.brres files or any other models using the Wavefront OBJ format.

Creating points, paths and forks is as easy as dragging points with the mouse – no need to set up indices or prev/next links –, and with automated height correction, this makes editing tracks a breeze.
