I have been trying to finish the CC5 Winter War Mod Conversion to TLD but have run into an issue with 3 connections on the strat layer. When I press the space all 5 adjacent maps are highlighted and when I move the BG to each map an arrow appears. But when I drop the BG I get an error going to 3 of the 5 maps. Coming from all 5 maps works fine. All other strat layer connections/movements are working. Any idea on things to check?

Finally figured it out.

That map had 5 entry/exit VL's (which must be 50 point) and 7 other VL's (2 of them 50 point). I deleted the 2 50 point VL's and everything is working now.

Edit: I put the 2 deleted VL's back but set them at 100 point and it is still working. Must have had too many 50 point VL's....

Thank you for dedicating your time to convert the mod. I don't know how to mod but if you need help I could try to learn.

Thank you for the offer NeyLutzow.

First step to get into Mod work is to grab the tools available. Take a look at CCS in the downloads area under toolbox; http://www.closecombatseries.net/CCS/index.php

- 5CC: is used to code new maps. Files in Maps Directory .los, .mmm, .ovm, .rfm and .txt
- BED9: is used to edit VL's shown on maps. Files in Maps directory .btd files.
- CCModInstaller: used to create a mod package exe that installs the mod files
- CCVehShEdit: used to create vehicle shadows. Files in Graphics directory
- RtBTool: used to open graphic files and repack. Files in Graphics directory
- CC Longest Day Workbook: used to edit data. Files in Data/Base directory

If you want to adjust/create things these tools are a must.

Thank you for showing me the right direction into modding.
I will read the documents from the tools and see what I will be able to do.

Looks like I spoke too soon. Running into problems again with sometimes being allowed and other times not being allowed to move between maps. Anyone have idea what causes that?
- total number of VL's?
- the order VL's are in the .BTD file?
- the order connections are in the stratmap.txt?
- Other?

Really weird, just noticed both BG's have the same name. Recreated the GC and now I'm only getting one and it seems to be working fine now....

TLD Winter War is in beta testing with a small group.

We'll use their feedback to make some bugs fixes/tweaks and we'll get it out there this winter.

Below is my most decorated Finish soldier at this stage (the image is with Scale Front End on which is 1.5x the original image);
