In the game base changer manager,  how do I make it so that event pictures arent 279 in size but way bigger

The default event picture is 512×96,I have modified a version (i.e.: 2.0.0.1), which supports 640×360.

You can also use the picture manager to batch convert all event pictures to 640×360 or any other size.

This Game Base Manager is only a primitive version, for more flexibility (e.g.: custom event picture size), please wait for later versions.

2.0.0.1? That should work fine if the original base works. Only event picture size is changed, everything else are the same. It works on my computer.

If you are using later versions, please DONT, wait until later updates.

- Better Map Generator Algorithm: No more gaps between provinces; more options and more flexibility; allowing separated provinces including enclaved provinces. Creating huge maps with thousands of provinces within 10 minutes!

Could this be the one that brings Paradox maps to AoH? We shall see...

I've got a problem with the new version. It does not really work. I tried loading a 5000+ province map  and the game just crashes at 59%. For now I will Stick to the old version.

I've tested on a map of 5000+ provinces and it works fine.

Please send me the line map that causes the game to crash and I will debug it through. Thank you for using and helping me improve the tool, and sorry for the inconvenience.

Also, try to play with the parameters, I once encountered crash because the provinces are too large.

It doesn't work with the HoI4 map or the EU4 map... 😭

Definitely. Actually, over a dozen Chinese modders have contacted me and wanted to build the HoI4 and EU4 map.

This tool can help you make a map with LESS effort, but it can NOT help you make a map with NO effort. In HoI4 and EU4 map, there are strangely shaped borders (too narrow, close to single-pixel level), which could not be clearly recoginized IN PRINCIPLE.

So please smooth the map first (especially the provinces close to the sea and the islands). That's what I've told all the modders  who came to me. (I'm not sure but I guess some of them have already manually smoothed the map and succeeded in building a map from Paradox, I've attached a picture).

Also, I'm not sure what color encodings the HoI4 and EU4 color map are using. Anyway, it seems that these maps have a large need. I may check and try to build them next month (winter vacation).

it's good, yes but i need --- converter i want to make PC & Phone mods.

Converter can not be easily made automatically, but quite easy manually:

1. PC -> (use the tool) Extract Version -> .zip

2. Unzip .zip in your phone or emulator.

3. Open game .dex file with MT Manager, copy everything in the unzipped directory to assets, replace when conflict occurs.

4. Save, done.

Damn, this is too good. U also should add some gfx option 😉

Yes it can. Definitely in the next version.

Currently, in the tool folder you can find a file "config.json", adjust the "dpi" value to change the gfx size.

How large is your map? What's your computer configuration?

On my laptop (bought 4 years ago), 5000+ provinces takes about 45 min from scratch to final playable.

@MagolorMy game crashes when i try to use the Auto Province thing. Is it fixed in the new update?

Guys, I can not get what the problem exatcly is unless some reproducable examples are provided.

Game crashes are relatively common during any mod making problem, try binary search on the number of provinces to determine the id of the error. Usually they are caused by zero-pixel provinces (this would not happen using this tool), oddly shaped provinces, large provinces (this is the most common), missing files, or just plain randomness. Also, you can crop the original map picture to determine where the provinces are.

It is recommended (at least this is what I do) to first try out small examples (maybe something draw by hand, or by cropping the original picture). Make sure it works on a small example. Then just follow the exact same steps, on a completely new mod base (clone from a backup or raw template in mod manager), using larger maps. Also, when you load the game, you can first set the number of provinces in the config to only 2 or 3, then gradually increase.

I've got an i7 9700k and 16gb 2400 ram  the map was 1600x1200, it could be because I didn't color the unfinished parts black, but that was no problem in the older version

The time complexity of the tool is in principle proportional to:

1. The map size (scan every pixel) * Number of provinces (find countour for each province)

2. The number of provinces (save each provinces)

3. The total length of borders (smoothing and merging)

4. Smoothing radius

 

 

As for loading it into the game, I don't know the complexity and I can do nothing about it since it is Lukas' work.

If there are fairly large provinces, try increase the step size to reduce the number of points on province borders, so that AoC2 can load them more quickly.

      The minimum available AI aggressiveness value is 50%. I want to change it but I don't know how. I saw this possibility in some mods, but I could not change it myself. I could not find the file responsible for the aggressiveness value. Łukasz Jakowski is kidding me :d.

      //<----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------->\\
      Introduction
      Hi, I'm Polska, but I prefer to be called Mic, I'm currently using some of my free time to develop a mod with things missing from the game, like a map with historical provinces of various dates, events for interesting scenarios, nations new, formable civilizations and others.
      //<----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------->\\
      Features
      - New map (15 thousand provinces probably), with cities;
      - Scenarios from 100 BC to 2021 AD;
      - New historical and fictitious formable nations;
      - New ideologies;
      - New nations;
      - Events.
      //<----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------->\\
      //<----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------->\\
      Current state
      The current state of the mod is still being finalized in Europe, the first alpha will be released when Europe is completed, the 1600 AD scenarios to 2021 are completed and the cities of Europe are completed, while it is not completed I won't launch any mod files (in the first version there will be no events, we are focusing on making the map at the moment).
      //<----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------->\\
      Suggestions/Discord
      If you want to enter the discord server to suggest something or see the mod's progress, I recommend entering the Discord server, I speak Portuguese (my native language), English and I can understand a little bit of Spanish, so we can communicate minimally and exchange some ideas. On Discord it's more certain that I would see your message than here, so if you want to go in there, you're welcome.

      One of the periods highly Ignored by AoH2 modders is the Napoleonic Era. There is currently no mod with This 12-15 year old period as the focus, and after the success of Age of Imperialism (which was focused on 1815-1870), it's time to change this and to start to look at the time right behind it.

      7. A large assortment of Cities and Fortresses
      8. Every Member of the Fellowship with his own Realm
