Uploading skirmish map: few unnecessary options

Recommended Posts

Hi, I am uploading one skirmish map for Stronghold Crusader at this moment, and I have noticed few things.

I have to chose difficulty level and number of missions, but as it is a skirmish map, we cannot say if it is hard or easy, and it has no missions. Except that one - destroy everyone on the map who is not your ally! :D Also, there is an option "number of estates"... I have chosen 8, as my map was made for players, but I think these two: number of players and number of estates is not the same thing. I only meant to inform you about this matter.

 

Regards!

It always has one mission otherwise you wouldn't be able to play it ;) Even though technically it's not a mission, you can still put that. If you don't want to put 1, there is a Not Applicable option at the bottom as N/A (Miscellaneous only) which you can select if you want. Also, if you can't select the difficulty of the map, select the difficulty of installing the file on your system - not exactly ideal, but I guess you know what I mean until I find a better way to accommodate this.

 

The number of players is different to estates, I agree with you there. But, you have to think which would be the most widely used from all the games we cover. From stronghold 2 peace scenarios or free build, there may not be any other players on the map, and there never are for CivCity Rome. Stronghold 3 is likely to not have as well, and the same for Stronghold Legends as free build.

 

I'll keep it in mind though if I ever do any major updating to it.

That's exactly the option which I chose. :) It is the one only mission - kill and don't be killed! :)

In that case, I agree it is the best solution. I only taught that you might be unaware of this, so that you should probably tell you, as I was the first one to upload Stronghold Crusader skirmish map.

But is there an option about number of players for Stronghold 2 kingmaker maps? I don't play Stronghold 2 very often, Stronghold Crusader is my favorite, but I think maximum number of players would be an important information about some certain map.

Rather than a 'mission', think of it as a scenario, that's how I think of it, a skirmish always has one scenario, whereas a custom war can have as many scenarios as you create for it (each scenario is a mission of it's own)

 

No, there isn't that option at the minute, again just the number of estates. I can understand where you're coming from, a field for all the possible opponents on the map. I will try and add it in at some point (I can't say how long that will be as I'm extremely busy with other stuff at the moment) but it will require slightly more time to do because there isn't a field for it yet so I would have to completely create it from scratch. It certainly would help, I'll give you that. Hopefully some day in the near future I'll add it in.

      Hey folks, I haven't done any map making in years, and I quite fancied having a go again, so I'm making an invasion map, as yet unscripted, so just eyecandy for now. I do have various resources for map making in an external drive, however the usb is broken so it is inaccessible at the moment, I recall that when I enquired it was cheaper to buy a new external casing than it was to get the port repaired, so I'll see about doing that some time. Anyway, here's a stitched together pano

      Stronghold Legends has an exclusive bonus trail (Arthur's Challenge) that was originally only released with the Gold disk version of the game.

However, Firefly have since released the 4th exclusive bonus trail as an addon application, which I have sourced and uploaded to our downloads section, available here.

      I don't usually announce a new map being created, but given that I've recently got back into Crusader 2, I've noticed one massive gripe...   SIEGES FOR FREE BUILD SPAWN IN THE MOST RIDICULOUS SPOTS EVER AND RUIN THE FUN!   Therefore, I am making a free build map with sensible siege spawns, to allow you to defend sensibly against a realistic enemy attack! Keep your eyes peeled! :P

    • Stronghold 2 Map Editor Help

      Hello, Within the map editor, I am trying to make a trigger where the player takes control of an AI player for a period of time (like in the military campaign, or when you take over Sir William?s estate to gain him honour while he is gone). Does anyone know how to do this? I saw something about controlling AI and it says enabled or disabled... but it seems to not do what I want it to do. Feel free to DM me or reply here! Thanks :)

      Hi guys! I'm new to the forum, and recently I've been having a few problems with Stronghold Legends. 1) Is there any way to import an old profile saved from my PC before I formatted everything? I've formatted my PC in which I was just a few missions away from the final achievement, and I'm unable to import it in the new game I just installed. I've saved a folder named Profiles, which contains a stats.dat file. No matter where I look, in my new Stronghold Legends folder there's no such thing as a
