It's great to see all the new tricks people are finding with the map editor - IMHO finding out-of-the-ordinary things to do with the editor is what makes the Stronghold series so much fun. I.e. the shallow water trick Wize1 just found.

If you'd like to write up your findings into a short how-to tutorial, we can add it to the Design Article section of the Scenario Design section to share with everyone.

Just please check with me first, either in this thread or at my email address kester @ heavengames.com to be sure that someone else isn't already working on the same topic.

I'd love to see all of these new scenario design tricks and techniques written up.

Thanks very much for the fast reply.
I'm using IE with AOL 9.0 and McAfee viruscan and firewall. It downloads for half a second then registers "Done" and... black box. I have pop up controls set to allow all. *sigh*
At least now I know the problem is at my end...

Weird, the other video tutorial on that site (scarletsabres) starts to buffer without a problem...?!?

I think we'll soon have a non-video tutorial on how to do it.

Don't Know if anyone is interested but......I just left another site, and found something curious.

Load any Map in Map editor, then go to edit.
Press [ALT] G and Graphics are Gone
Press again thier back

Press [ALT] D Displays Map Data, if You press it 7 times it will be on Terrain Height! Usefull for Building Ramps etc. Keep pressing and it will go back to normal.


If You exit the editor with these things displayed DONT SAVE, but PLAY any Map and it will show up! Don't know what happens if you turn off Graphics and try to play though.

Just thought it was worth passing on.

[ALT] Y Displays FPS and X Y Coordinates

I have just found out something VERY, VERY, COOL!!! I have just found out how to control (in a war/peace scenario map) wolves, bears, and outlaws!!! (from the AI outlaw camps) I will be making a map in a little while, using this trick.

If you have the time and inclination to do so, a tutorial would be most welcome! We'll arrange to have it as a feature on the site. I'll leave it up to you, but we are desperate for articles and content for SH2 and Legends

I agree. We need them badly.

I sent an email to Sir Hugh yesterday asking if he could post up more articles, and he agreed. So, I should be sending in some Legends articles soon.

Also, I asked him if I could give him screenshots for Legends, and he said to mail them to Lady Arcola. I did that, so hopefully that'll get Legends screenshots up and running.

So, Sir WhiteWolf, if you take some SH2 articles (area at which I am quite inexperienced map-editor-wise) and I take some Legends articles, I think that'll help a lot, eh?

The Editor (or in this case the Map Editor) is always my favorite aspect of any AOE type game. But in S2, I am having a problem understanding it. I can use Map Editor to create any setup I want, but then how do I save or play it? I lose it.
