Hi everyone!

I looked right now inside the modding forum, really epic work there.

I would like to try myself on the editor - but how in god's sake everyone can create such beautiful landscapes? Everything drawn by self? Is there any map-generation tool? 

If I try to create a map, it looks like a kindergarten drawning :D

 

Would be awesome if theres any help for this :)

Hi Luca

You could do a prototype with a handmade map (our main designer just does that, he draws then on paper and scans them) to start with, and we could then help you find an artist that can make it "nice" for you.

 

Cheers

 

PS: modding discussions should be in modding forum

Hi there!

Oh, alright, that would be epic!

Sorry for posting here, but in the Mod sub-forum, there is written in the rules that we should post general modding questions here?! But I will use the modding forum for sure if it's better for you ;)

 

But before I can go further, I have another question/problem. I've created a unit in the database. Added all necesarry thing (I guess).

Now, at edit Scenario, I added an initial unit stack in 'Region X' I can create the stack, and click on + for units. Now I can choose the side & nation of the unit, but no type. There is only -none- to choose.

What could be the problem for that?

You just missed one step: once units are created, they have to be "assigned" to a nation (this is why your dropdown list is empty, the nation 'owns' no units). You do so inside the Scenario section, Sides / Nations, using the + / ++ buttons to assign the DB units to a nation. Each unit is unique and can only be assigned to one nation

What is true for units is also true for cards (unicity, sides assignment)

Alright, thanks!

I will look how far I come/if I have any othe problems.

As soon my Scenario has a specific amount of quality, I will post here/contact you for some help with the graphics :)

Would be nice if I get used to the editor :D have a lot of possible scenarios in mind :)

There is no reason why you could not use the editor, once you get used to it you will see it is much easier than it seems, rather foolproof and faster to create new scenarios. Quite a few modders already did excellent jobs with it. Feel free to contact us by email for more help at support@waw-games.com
