That sounds great, apuya24. It's best to send them as a plain text file, or if you need to show specific formatting a .doc file. I can help you with the screen shots if needed. Also, I'd recommend doing one and submitting it for review before proceeding with the others.

Looking forward to seeing your first one.

Just to let you know, Sparrow, I sent you an email with a write up of Beaumaris Castle.

Well I got some extra time and I guess I can spend it on writing an article for stronghold heaven, but I don't have any ideas, any suggestions?

Any scope for an article (or articles) on Anglo Saxons to balance the pre-1066 write-ups we already have?

I can modify and shorten the work i'm doing to accompany my Bretwalda series of maps, making it more relevant to the game. There will be sufficient material to extend this to two or three separate articles, each featuring something specific (general overview; religion and structures; Anglo Saxon life).

I'm almost finished as of this minute with a page or two essay on "Writing a Good Story", which is something that I'm sure would be useful to mapmakers across both Stronghold 1 and Stronghold 2 heaven.

I was wondering how I would go about getting it on the front page/articles page/whatever.

EDIT: I knew it, I just KNEW IT! Always scroll up to the original post for links!

Oh well... silly me.

Okay Sparrow, I've sent you the essay via sparrow@magickeys.com , it's about three pages on word, but I've sent it in .txt format like the guide suggested.

Definitely into the existing archive, but there's absolutely no reason why they can't be put up in the forums too. If we use the forums initially, interest will surely be generated. We can then refer back to the existing archive (which probably needs simplifying to some extent, i.e. more user-friendly) and provide links to the relevant articles if anyone wants to know, or hasn't yet discovered the newly-expanded archives.

Shame we can't place them in the Downloads area where the vast majority of newer designers seems to hang out...

This may sound a little lazy but thats not my intention:

I'd rather let you put them up or Sir Hugh, it will get more attention if they are uploaded by a mod. You can choose to do whatever you like and promote them as you wish but i do beleive this will have more success if backed by you

Let me know if you disagree and i'll post them, either way i'll continue writing and get this place up to scratch.

These articles will have our backing, I can assure you of that! We'll try your idea and see what the response is like. I just hate the thought of your hard work not being recognised, hence a two-pronged approach..

I haven't received any from Sparrow yet, but they'll go up as soon as they're coded and passed to me (or Sir Hugh). He does such a brilliant job, doesn't he?! Noted re hex editor as next article

Fantastic! A hexadecimal editor tutorial would be great! I wonder if it has anything more than the colouration of separate factions?
I think Jalis knew/knows a lot of hexadecimal editing.

I sent you another tutorial mate, you can pass it on to anyone if your short of time. Keep it for when the homepage needs something new if you like

I'll try to write a few more over the coming weeks, lets get an archive that can rival SHK!

We'll see about that, eh?
My team-mate and myself have been writing a few articles for SHK. Mind you, we may just as well write them for here as well.

Nice article.

I was wondering if anyone knows anything else about hexadecimal editing?

i know you get get an extra colour which is between blue-purple by using the number "00"
You can also get base red and black units like Jalis did over at SHK.
In theory you should also be able to make a larger map than 400 by 400 but im yet to see someone skilled enough to figure it out without glitches.

Its pretty exciting, if we had fireflys coders over here im sure they'd be able to show us some secrets with the hex editor...
