Steps:
1. Download Map editor.
2. Clear all data.
3. Copy/Create bg.png (background for your map)
4. Create province.
5. Copy first province into new folder (Province is called PROV, and move it into folder that will be containing all provinces)
6. Rename your first province to 0 (second to 1 etcetera)
7. In game map folder (steamapps\common\Age of Civilizations II\map) copy template (and rename it), and clear "cities" folder.
8. Copy your provinces into update, \data\provinces (I'm not sure if you need to copy it into provinces folder, but It works too :P)
9. Edit config.json(in copied template folder) and change values:


{
    Map: [
        {
            MapName: "%Mapname%",
            Author: "%Yournickname%",
            BackgroundName: "%bgname%",
            ContinentsPackage: "Earth6"
            RegionsPackage: "Earth_AoC2",
            NumberOfProvinces: %numberofprovinces%,
            MapScale: 3,
            WorldMap: true,
            Scenario: "testScenario",
            Wiki: "Wikipedia:Unusual_articles"
        },
    ],
    
    Age_of_Civilizations: Map
}


10. Rembmer to create background files with name %bgname%_L and %bgname%_R
11. go back to map folders and add line to make game read that map:


{
    Map: [
        {
            Folder: "Earth"
        },
        {
            Folder: "Ashan"
        },
        {
            Folder: "Earth_AoC1"
        },
        {
            Folder: "Kepler"
        },
        {
            Folder: "template"
        },
        {
            Folder: "%mapname%"
        },
    ],
    
    Age_of_Civilizations: Maps
}


12. Run game and go to Editor>MapEditor>EditConnections and Provinces>Update every province you added. (EXAMPLE)
13. Congratulation you have created your first map 😛
Short video, if you still need help. (OS is in polish, rest is in english 😛 )


If you add new province check continent of this province in map editor, if it is "Ocean" the map will load lower scale of the province background
 

 

Extra: 

 

CREATING PROV FILES:

  Hide contents

1. If you haven't saved your PROV files, no worries! you can bring them back 😛 , but it might take time here is how:
2. Open mapAoC2_v2.txt and search for line ID*2+1 (If you have id of missing province 100, search for line 201), this line, and line below are the lines that you need to recreate PROV file:

PQCo48G.png
3. Copy them into file called ID (make sure that it isn't .txt file, because that might crash your game)
4. place after last number in first line semicolon -
;, and delete space between them.
4.1 - Before:

2020,2040,2055,2034
5000,2000,3000,4000

4.2 - After:
2020,2040,2055,2034;5000,2000,3000,4000
5. Congratulation's you have recreated your PROV file 😛

      I think everyone has come across the fact that your leader will always rule your country during the game, regardless of ideology and time.My question is how to replace the ruler with the help of events or something else during the game?

      What do it does?
      Delete null provinces; Rename ALL provinces in numerical order Defects that can be solved soon
      You need to run until all the files are all in order and all the null provinces are deleted; If you run it too much times the provinces can be renamed for some random numbers (if you run one more time after the wrong renaminmg, you solve the problem) Qualities
      Open source; Much more faster than manually; Solve a lot of problems - I guess Requirements
      Python 3: From python 3: OS; Glob

      How to add a new language or custom language on AoC2.
      1. you need to copy bundles.properties and paste it on other folder
      2. Go to inside the bundles.properties file that you copied and translate it with your language
      3. add your language tag on your language file name, it should be like this: bundles_yourtaghere.properties
      3. if you done it, paste it on game/languages
      4. to add flag, you need to go to inside age_of_civilizations file, the file should be inside game/languages folder
      5. and then add your language tag and your flag tag, to find the flags tag, you need to go to game/flagsH and you will find your flag tag and your flag that you want to add. Then, it should be like this: ;yourlanguagetag;yourflagtag;
      6. Save it and done 👍
      If you still don't understand, you can go to my YouTube Channel i will upload the video soon.

      Hi, I have a problem. Namely: when I replace a map file in the map editor with a map with dimensions of 21600x10800, this does not start, can this problem be solved without reducing the map resolution?
