The Actor Framework Message Maker by Moore Good Ideas provides functional improvements as compared to the NI Actor Framework Message Maker, such as:

-Ability to update already built messages
-New message icons
-Send Message VI gets its description from the message VI

To use the tool open a project then select "Tools"->"Actor Framework Message Maker (MGI)". Next select the methods you'd like to create messages for and click "Build/Update Selected Messages" The MGI Actor Framework Message Maker addresses two main issues:

1. If you changed the message VI, you had to manually fix the message class
2. Block diagram readability is lost because of the plain "Send Message" VIs, and it takes time change the icons and descriptions

To address these issues, the software will automatically detect out-of-date and the user just clicks a button. To significantly increase block diagram readability, it provides a good icon that clearly shows that it's a message, but also tells you what the message does. Additionally, the message includes a good VI description so you can look at a block diagram, mouse over things, and understand what your actor code is doing.
