This tool allows you to horizontally mirror any given map from Infinity Engine games. It has been coded as a WeiDU mod, so that it can be executed on any platform supported by WeiDU.

The tool considers ARE, WED, INI and TIS files (palette and pvrz-based), as well as height, light and search maps in the conversion process - including night versions. MOS files are copied into the output folder, including PVRZ files referenced by MOS V2 files, but not modified.

The tool attempts to preserve the general tileset (TIS) structure as best as possible, so that any potential post-processing operations can be applied without having to deal with a garbled set of tiles. It will also help to avoid graphical artifacts in Enhanced Edition games which may occur if tiles are rendered onto PVRZ textures in the wrong order.

The tool provides two components. You can either specify a path to a set of map files manually, or use an automated mode which retrieves the paths to one or more map files from a predefined text file.
More information can be found in the tool's readme.

This sounds interesting, but what's the purpose?

"Ok, I've just about had my FILL of riddle asking, quest assigning, insult throwing, pun hurling, hostage taking, iron mongering, smart-arsed fools, freaks, and felons that continually test my will, mettle, strength, intelligence, and most of all, patience! If you've got a straight answer ANYWHERE in that bent little head of yours, I want to hear it pretty damn quick or I'm going to take a large blunt object roughly the size of Elminster AND his hat, and stuff it lengthwise into a crevice of your being so seldom seen that even the denizens of the nine hells themselves wouldn't touch it with a twenty-foot rusty halberd! Have I MADE myself perfectly CLEAR?!"

Depends on your need. I have coded this tool some time ago to help creating "new" areas out of existing maps for my own mods because I was dissatisfied with DLTCEP's map mirror feature. So why shouldn't I share it for everyone else to use?
