I have gone around and tried to find tutorials on editing GC maps but have yet to find anything that helps me. I understand I need to use the .xml files but where are they located?? and how do I access them!? Any help would be greatly appreciated and I know it sounds dumb:uhoh: but thanks in advance :)

If you downloaded the map editor, then it created a mod folder. Look in mods\source\data for campaigns_singleplayer.xml for EAW, or Campaigns_underworld_GC.xml for FOC. Or find, and download the .Meg Extractor to extract the files for yourself from the config.meg

Well thanks, now that I found them I can't alter them for some reason. Whenever I open the Campaigns_Underworld_GC file it opens the internet to show me the contents which I am unable to alter in any way. I have not been able to find a very informative thread that really goes into making a GC map HELP:eek:

I want to make a full GC map with each group starting with only one planet (Coruscant: Empire, Yavin 4: Rebels, Hypori: Underworld) with nearly every other planet controlled by pirates and the like. I really need help with this.

Save the edited Campaigns_underworld_GC.XML in the game\data\xml folder. If it does not exist create it.
