SOLUTION IF YOUR MAP ISNT WORKING

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Here are some tips,first imma tell you the basic tutorial which i expect all of you to know

BASIC

1.Install the map editor.

-So better for you to install the new one by russian community,why?Because you can work faster,the size isnt important,and its basicly better.

2.Find a good map.

-Yeah who cant do this,well i see a lot of people just getting some ugly images from google,search more,if you find a map with better quality,you will can make better provinces,you will be able to make better background for ingame,you will be able to make bigger map,also i am always using png images,i think they are best(my opinion).

3.Make 3 provinces to test

-You must test will it work at first,how to put em ingame?

PUTTING IN-GAME

1.Go to Game>map and copy the template

2.Paste the template in the same folder and rename it by your map(example:yourmapname)

3.Go to Game>map>Age_of_Civilizations and you can see how are other maps writted,just do that with your map name,for example:

        {
            Folder: "earth"
        },

        {
            Folder: "yourmapname"
        },

4.Now you can get the background and split it into two you can find that online

5.If you did that now save the photos and rename them in how you want your tag to be for example yourmaptag,but you have to name which is the left one and which is the right one,like this:yourmaptag_L and yourmaptag_R.Now put them into Game>map>backgrounds

6.Go to Game>map>yourmapname>config and here edit (may you have mistaken,your 3 provinces are 0,1 and 2,so dont write 2 in the number of provinces,write 3)

example:

{
    Map: [
        {
            MapName: "yourmapname",
            Author: "yourname",
            BackgroundName: "yourmaptag",
            ContinentsPackage: "Earth6"
            RegionsPackage: "Earth_AoC2",
            NumberOfProvinces: 3,
            MapScale: 3,
            WorldMap: true,
            Scenario: "testScenario",
            Wiki: "Wikipedia:Unusual_articles"
        },
    ],
    
    Age_of_Civilizations: Map
}

7.Go to Game>map>yourmapname>cities and here delete everything in

8.Now copy your provinces from the map editor and paste them in next three places

-Game>map>yourmapname>data>provinces and here delete old ones and paste yours

-Game>map>yourmapname>update and here paste the provinces here too

-Game>map>yourmapname>updatePB and paste the provinces here too

9.Try to open your map,if it doesnt work first time open the game again,because you dont have x5scale,if it doesnt open second time then you may have done some mistakes.

Mistakes which you maybe accidentally made

1.When you edit a province,you maybe remove a point or something,but dont click enter because whenever when you click enter another "province" is being created,and if there arent any points then the notepad file will look like this:

/

When you put this ingame it doesnt work

2.Also if you accidentally click enter the same happens

3.This is just a tip for better looking borders of the provinces,add more points for them to look better

4.Have it ever happened to you two provinces bordering but they look like one?Well for example,if you have two big provinces and one in the middle,you know that the provinces in the editor have their colors,so the one big province is green for example,and the other blue,check does the provinces "share" the same color in the border,like if in the first part they are bordering its blue,and the other(cutted by the middle one)its green then it will have half border,what does that mean,that means that if you click on the green province and connect it with the blue one,ingame,it will have a border just on the green sharing points,and reversed if you do it with the blue one.

5.Always check did you made everything right,check and the smallest details,and the dumbest mistakes can be made,so check to be sure.

Some tips for better work and better maps

1.Always work like this,so added the first 3 provinces and it works,make next 100 in the editor and then add them ingame,make next hundred and then add them ingame(add them in the update folders too)it is better to work like this because and if you did a mistake it wont open and you will know that the mistake was in last 100,so you will delete them and make new ones.

2.Like i said before look to find better quality maps

3.Its better for you if you find a maps with borders to work  in the editor,but for the background of the map,edit it and remove the borders
