When on your map edit screen press ctrl & r then adjust the map size on that , i belive its its in the bottom right corner.

Top right i believe it is. (below the map name). Remember this, the bigger the map, the more tedious it is to design. Don't make the mistake of creating a small map, then changing the size - this does work, but it also expands your map items, thus ateriods for example, would look bleek.

Don't forget when you first open up a new map it defaults to 6400x6400. Resize to the big size you want and SAVE. Exit and reload the map and it will be large. 50,000x50,000 is about the largest operable size that doesn't eith crash or cause stuttering slow downs no matter what hardware you have. I do nothing but 50x50 and that's nicely large enough.

Pinky, I realize the point is that you don't want to use small maps. I can't see how anyone could play even 2 player on a 6400x6400 map but to each his own. I want to be more specific on resizing maps- As soon as you resize save- before you do anything else or put any objects or start points on the map.
