I got sometimes similar error, it happens when you set ressources on an hex wich had no "nation assigned"
Also I notice I got sometimes crashes when I work on zoom out version (with high mountain terrain for example).
I cant explain why , maybe editor is still a beta tool (but still very good so far)
The rule number 1 is to save the work on regular basis, just in case

I have also noticed this, but I wanted to see it a few more times on zoom out, just to be sure before I reported it.

I know, I know ! And as you can probably tell by the screen shot, I didn't have much done before I tried to save, which caused a bunch of pop-ups saying I needed to add more stuff, like capitals. This is when it crashed and I lost it. It would have been nice to be able to save the map without making it pass those further tests.

This is really cool. Looking forward how this devolps. With the panzercorps skin and advanced AI. This probably will be the best digital boardgame out there.

Thank you all

Here is a "small" part of the MAP that I did update several weeks ago.
Dont forget that it will be mainly a "kit" for modders, not a campaign file, "just" a Map that everybody can use to devellop its own campaign.
The Editor allow Map crop, so anybody interested can adjust required area for campaign Edit (eg: east Front Barbarossa or DAK in North Africa ect.....)

It would be extremely interesting if someone made a WW2 scenario out of this.
I'm not up for it, but I would think that someone else would be...
Not that I am thinking of anyone in here.

SIPRES, this is some awesome work. Would you consider sharing it in the current state, or are you set on waiting until it is done? I have been wanting to work on a WWI scenario for a long time and this mod might just be the perfect base. I'd love to get into it and poke around in the editor to get a feel for scale and unit sizes and such.

Hi Samolety,

I plan to share only after a certain point of acheivement (at least all coastlines and relief completed)
I like to release something wich can be used quickly by modders, so be patient...
To give you an idea of current progress coastline from Cadiz to Konigsberg is complete, I will post later on few screenshots

I understand SIPRES. I will start working on the underpinnings of my Great War scenario with this map in mind as a base while I eagerly await the first release. [:)]

Well, Samolety, WWI modding means a lot of script work, right? Do you have experience dealing with this challenging section of the game?

Yeah, I've got a good bit of scripting experience, both in general from coding in Lua and game-specific from playing around in the editor. That's what I am starting work on now. I have always wanted to do WWI but I've never been happy with the default game map and a project like this one you have here always daunted me. I don't know whether or not I will ever finish the scenario, but I'm definitely going to give it the old college try. It's a personal project, so no one really knows or cares if I finish or not (though if I do I will definitely release it). The first step was always: If I'm going to do it, I'm going to do it right. Which meant a suitable map. This one is brilliant.

- Besançon
- Châteauroux
- Orléans
- Neufchâteau

Error on a previous map : Fontainebleau
