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

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.

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 :)

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.
