Hello to all,

Just wondering if any thought's been given to the idea of an in-game map editor. I'd have your baby if you could pull it off. For that matter please throw in a unit editor as well.

You'd obviously know better than me but I'd think the availabilty of those would create a greatly increased fan base.

You can already make maps, granted you need to make map art with another program, but there is an in-game map values editor. As for units there are open version of the data files you can edit and Charles put up a guide for doing data/unit editing.

Yes, I know. I was just hoping there'd been some thought toward making it a bit easier/more intuitive. Some games you can throw together a map and be playing on it in very little time. Not complaining - the game is brilliant. I've mentioned before my wish to build some maps/scenarios. I just can't ever seem to find the time. 20 years to retirement then I'll be all set tho.

Sorry. No fast map builder I'm afraid. Most games can do it because the maps are made up. We are working from real world data/images. We gave a large number of maps available for making scenarios and we are planning on adding more. One thing that we are looking at is the possibility of making mega maps that can be cut to make the map you want to play on. The big blocker on that is the size of the image file. Hopefully we will find a solution down the road which works for everyone.

Any paint program will create a map that the FPC series can use. Free programs like Paint.net included.

Good Hunting.
