If I know, there is no mapping tool.
The modding tools allow you to change all the text based config files and modify the properties of existing maps.
Makin new maps/worlds is not possible at the moment.

Mapping editor for original machines game is not possible, until someone can read and write the models.bin file.
Also, many of the map related stuff is hard coded into the EXE-file.
So, I think we have no chance to make new maps until we have the original source-code and if i know this is not available and will not be any time.
