Save often, and make backups of your save. I Just lost a level i had used 6 hours to make since the save became corrupt for no apparent reason.

Yes, we recommend saving often.
One possible source of corruption I know of is if you try to change the Environment Settings before the scenario is first saved it will sometimes make your file unusable.

Also keep in mind the game automatically saves your map to YourMapName.dofbak file - as a backup, that you can rename to .dofscn and load up if something goes wrong. So do check that file

i'm pretty good with editors, but the scripts thing is abit weird. I don't even know how to create a new script in DoF's editor XDD

@FrostFire - There is a beginners guide to scripting here (http://www.reverieworld.com/forums/showthread.php?t=3928).
It will walk you through opening the script editor and creating triggers.
Since the last time I sent you some info on the Editor, I've gone through some older posts and compiled a list of relevant links:
FANTASY FRIDAY XV
The Scenario Design Editor
FANTASY FRIDAY XLII
The Scenario Design Editor Part 2
A Beginner's Guide to Scripting and Cinematography
A Beginner's Guide to Level Design
Tutorial 1: Editor Keyboard shortcuts and Editor.config
You can also look at the Tutorial scenarios for some examples of scripting

Brian, if 1 makes a AWESOMELY awesome map, could it get added into the game? :D

If the map is awesomely, awesome enough, we might add it to the game as a quest.
Of course, it could just be shared with other players and they can load it as a custom scenario.
