PostSubject: Map Info   Thu Jun 24, 2010 9:39 pm

I downloaded every map I could find, just about, but lots of them lack some of the basic info when viewing their thumbnails in the Skirmish room. For example, I'll see on a Cavedog map something like "14x10 Landron's Tarn 2-8 Players" but on some 3rd party maps all I get is "!!! !! 2v2v2 Assault MAna Craze Fun!!! !!!"

I'm going to - because I can't let a sleeping dog lie - go through and fill out details on each map. Or scrap the maps which show no promise to me. But I'm not sure exactly what I need for the info to appear properly.

Anyone know what I need to do?

and you should write on all of them, in the name like 2v2 SPR (name)

SPR fro spread mana

GR for grouped mana??? sounds like good idea

NO! That's the kind of shit description that's making my head hurt as is! I'd like the dimensions of the map first and foremost, then # of players. Giving details about mana on an unknown map kind of defeats the purpose of playing a new scenario, methinks.

But anywho, thanks for the heads up. Scenario Properties, got it!

Okay, so what is an OTA file? The Maps I'm looking at don't have any and its a pain the arse to keep restarting Cartographer each time to open the map...

Yeah i agree, instead of putting hundreds of !!!!!! just 2v2 or GRP should be put so we can quickly find the maps we want, then have the map size, number of manas etc in the description. Also I think many of the rubbish maps with broken mana, unequal sides or ugly plainness should just be deleted.

Quite a challenge you've got there bardan!

Heh, no chance I'm doing all of that. Size, # of players, and maybe small description like odds/evens. And that only on those maps which I give my stamp of approval. Of course, my tastes in maps are different than that of others, so there's no certainty anyone will agree with me. Very Happy

Guys, does anyone knows if bardan had ever finished this project and corrected/organised the info of all the available maps?
And something more, I have created a few unique maps which I wish to upload so anyone could play them. Does anyone know how to upload maps on the internet? Please...

EDIT: Nevermind. Manolo has already collected all the maps in a super pack. The link is here: https://docs.google.com/open?id=0Bx6iFTCxv8m6MlViSFppZ0h5MWs
