Questions about map editor

Postby Zeratul on Wed Dec 23, 2009 4:22 am

I seen many maps and so far they are all great. But I wanted to make one like that but I do not know how. So I need your help guys.

I seen the DarkStar RPG has many regions. Some triggers messages. And some gives you unit/s to control. How do you do that?

I've seen many different custom units lately. Like a spiderbike which shoots like Neutron Accelerator. Changing projectile speed and the effects. How can I change it?

I think that is it. I would really appreciate your help guys.

Thanks - Zeratul :twisted:

You should download the manuals at

Open up one of those 'modified' maps, you will find a units.add or units.txt file in it, as well as maybe a buildings.txt etc. Try messing around with those to get a feel for the customization system. It's pretty neat.
