Warning for new mapmakers
 
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.

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:

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

Brian Shingles 04-26-2013 10:09 AM

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.

Hmm maybe we could make famous battle maps.. ideas ideas.
