Hey guys, new to editing maps. I start out by adding the spawn positions, command centers, then building some interesting obsticles, neutral zones, rocks, trees, create the weather and everything is fine save for one detail. When I start the map in skirmish if i've created a small base, everything is blown up, i put the initial health to max and still the same results, it actually does this in the editor as well, is there a way around this or is that how its supposed to be. Thanks so much guys. (Note: I downloaded a third party map and things were blown up in the editors point of view but when you use the map things are fine.) Nate
If it is a skirmish map you are making you will need the necessary markers. If you look under "Markers" in the map editor you will see things like: Player_1_Start_Postition or something like that. You need to place those markers for each respective player. I am not sure what the markers are called exactly because so far I have only made maps for GCs. I hope that helps some what. Someone else could probably explain it better though.
thanks, I have placed both markers such as (player 0 spawn, player 0 position and player 1 spawn player 1 postion respectively near the bases) The problem is the bases, turrets, etc. are destroyed when I begin to play. Is it part of the game to start building them or is it something I can change in the editor. The real question is can I fix the objects so they aren't destroyed at the beginning of the battle. thanks, Nate
Alright, I figured it out. Look under "Multiplayerstructuremarkers" and you'll find things like"Team_00_Barracks". So get rid of the old structures and replace them with their respective team structure and ignore the fact that they are rebel buildings, they are just used as a template. Also be sure the markers are neutral so that any faction can use any of the bases. That should about do it, tell me if you have any more problems.
hey I'll try that out and see what happens, but it sounds like your onto something.
I can't seem to find "multiplayer" markers. I am using the map editor and EAW 1.5 but not FOC if that makes a difference.
Got it.....in the starting object box, I needed to drop down so the X Build Site was active (Command Build Site, Mining Build Site) etc. I had the other buildings as just "None". For some reason that took care of it lol. I still am having trouble though with creating "single player maps" I can't get them to show up in skirmish mode unless skirmish only accepts multiplayer ready maps. I also would like to know how to use the water tool a bit.
When you say singleplayer map do you mean maps like Galatic Conquest or just a 1v1 map?
I was simply refering to the option in the mp creator "single player"
Where is this.
