Well, I'm trying to learn how to edit GC maps, I'm currently working on Blue Lobsters 68 planet map thingy. I know how to change sizes, and posistions. I'm currently trying to figure out how to change planet affiliations, I want the rebs to only start on like 5 planets, but nothing I do affects them, can someone help?
This is done in Campaigns_Singleplayer and changing the starting forces on certain planets.
sounds like you are editing planets.xml... edit campaigns_singleplayer.xml
I was, I made it so they only started on Dantooine, Hoth, AX-253, Mon Calamari, and Yavin. But when I tested it I still started with half the galaxy.
-.- First off did you edit BOTH campaigns? first one is rebels but it doesnt say then theres one AFTER that for the empire.
Kalo Shin-.- First off did you edit BOTH campaigns? first one is rebels but it doesnt say then theres one AFTER that for the empire.
in the camp single player XML you should see entries like this Rebel, (Planet name), (unit), or something close to that. delete whatever faction you don't want to have the planet (the whole thing) or change to fit whatever faction you want. you have to do it twice once for the rebel and once for the empire, if you have any other factions in the particular senario you have to do it for them aswell if you want the same thing for each faction at the beginning. Note if you delete the whole entry for a particular planet it becomes neutral. The Planets XML modification is not nesesary unless you want to change other stuff.
Ok, I'll try that and see if it works, thanks.
Edit: Nope, still doesnt work, thanks for trying though.
Gotta love having two seperate campaigns though, it can be a pain at first, but once you start adding extra factions and such... it's god's gift to man.
Colt - You might be doing the planets wrong.
I probably am.... meh, oh well, I give up lol. I'm not technicly sound enough, nor organized enough to do this crap XD
