Good day, With a background in RTS mapping, I look forward to start with COD maps. I've spend time reading different topics in this section and it gave me some good impressions, but it also sounds WAY different than what i'm used to. While I'm downloading tutorial videos from Modsonline I was wondering if I can persuade somebody to write down a general description of the steps you need to take to create a COD map. In regular understandable language please. I've got a feeling that many visitors will appreciate such a description. For example, If I would have to type a general description of how to create a Settlers map, I would mention that you start by opening the editor and setting a map size. After that you pick one of the Ground brushes from the Tools menu. For example the Grass brush. You use it to draw the land masses for your colonies. Later you apply the Rock brush, Elevation brush, and there's many more brushes.... Etc. etc. Anyone tempted to type something like that for us wannabe COD map makers? ;) I realize it's gonna be a more complicated story than my example though.. Very much appreciated. Greetings and thanks, Bushdoctor.

Okay, that might have been a too elaborate question.. In the mean time I've gotten a good idea what elements are involved by watching Wyatt's videos. I still haven't figured out how that all fits together though, so I'll return with more questions later. :) Greets, Bushdoctor.
