VIDEOS: How to make a Map - Based off Map Editor Instructions

Discussion in 'Custom Maps' started by Hi!, Jan 10, 2014.

  1. Hi!

    Hi! Contributor

    This was all made according to Fixi's instructions located here.

    If you're making a map, good luck with it and and hope to see it in the Custom Maps section. Map Editor Instructions

    Part 1


    Part 2


    Part 3


    Part 4


    Part 5



    Edit:
    If you try using the editor in full screen mode, the top will get cut off and you will be unable to use the editor. Here is a picture showing what I meant. Make sure you're in windowed mode.

    Nice. You may want to add notations (you can do so after a video has been uploaded) for specific instructions, such as pointing out what to hold so you can rotate/scale objects.

    Yeah, the launcher deleting user-made maps is pretty lame. It might get changed sometime in the future.

    Sorry, but no.

    @Hi! - your deleted maps should've been moved to the Recycle Bin, have a look in there.

    Also, before you start, copy/paste your Legions folder and don't run the launcher in that directory - just delete it. Rename it to the name of the map you're creating, with a new copy for each map - so when you go back to it you'll easily be able to tell what you're working on.

    Hi! Contributor

    I took a look at it this morning and it didn't delete the maps, it updated the server/config.cs file and deleted the code I added to run the maps. The maps are still in the missions folder, I just have to add the code to run them again.

    I didn't think about that. Thank you for the tip, will add that in the video :)

    Hi! Contributor

    I thought doing two parts in one video would make it short but apparently not....I never anticipated it'd go up to 6 parts but oh well, you guys now have all the videos and anything that's on here is in the video, I will be making some more videos that mention some key points but that will be tonight.

    1024114 fluff drops probably wasn't a good idea. ;)
