Rotating in Map Editor

Recommended Posts

I am currently making a War Scenario map in the SHC2 map editor. I recall being able to rotate buildings such as towers or the keep for example, but I cannot figure out how to do it now. I have tried CTRL+E/Q/Mouse Scroll/Left Button/Right Button. I have also tried CTRL+ALT+All of the above. None of which are working. I can't even get the rotate button within the editor to work, am I being stupid or is it broken?

 

All help appreciated, thank you in advance!

 

EDIT: I have loads of questions about this editor including, estates, scripting, map types etc, but I feel it would be silly to make a new topic for each. Perhaps someone who is advanced with the editor could make a guide about everything within it. I cannot find a good one online and I would be very grateful to whoever did so, thank you :)

Some of the staff are creating articles on the site, the editor will be amongst them, stay tuned they should be adding them at any time.

 

As my game has still not arrived I am unable to comment on the editor. However, I'm sure @Lord Vetka will give you some tips when he views the thread as he does have the game.

Yes I do have the game and am trying to learn the editor now, there is a thread on how to rotate things in the editor but can't remember where right now. This editor is like the one for SH3, anyone experienced with it should be fine with this one, most of my work has been with terrain so far.

I am unfamiliar with the SH3 map editor and so this is my first time using the same type. I didn't really think SH3 to be a good game hence I didn't bother making maps for it. Now Stronghold Crusader 2 on the other hand is a great game and everything in my map is made, textures, resources, estates and what not. But I really need to know how to script war scenarios and how to rotate buildings. Anyone know the answer?

I never really had enough time to look into it properly in SH3 (as I was busy with the site, real life commitments and I got the game quite a while after it was released) but if like Kirk says it is practically exactly the same as SH3, you can do the following:

 

tools -> edit scenario

 

and the options will become available to you to alter the map type and other mission options.

Thank you Chris, I just noticed someone else posted this in an old topic but thanks for the reminder :)

 

As for rotation, any ideas?

I just edited my last post with a link to Nigels answer to the rotating in the editor.

 

To script the invasions you would need to use a trigger then an event, I have not looked into this to much yet and will follow up with more as I go.

 

Chris, I believe that is what Nigel had to say about rotating buildings.

Yes I saw this also Vekta, thank you again. This is one way and I suppose it is very useful it is not super efficient, I am sure there is a shortcut to rotate items using the mouse scroller. If I find it I will let you know.

 

I'll use Nigel's idea for now, thank you both :)

 

EDIT:This problem has been resolved. To rotate buildings the old way, simply hold CTRL+Press Mouse Scroller+Spin Mouse Scroller

Thanks for letting us know the problem is fixed, but please don't add new replies just stating things like "last post edited with reply" as it's a fairly pointless message.

 

Double posting is acceptable providing several hours have passed so you should be fine to add that as a new message.

Regarding what is/isn't acceptable for posting, the site rules pretty much sum it up for you:

      Microsoft changed what the F1 key does: it pulls open the Bing browser (eww) and opens a useless help file. (why????)

I believe Firefly was a bit lazy when they designed the AIV editor because they didn't think that anyone would be using it nearly 20 years later - the AIV editor does not have a save file button!

      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 :)

    • Stronghold 2 Scenario Editor Question

      In the Stronghold 2 (and Stronghold Legends) scenario editor, is there another set of keys one can use when setting things like the start date without using the mouse wheel? (I honestly see no reason why there isn't since some people play on laptops and not all computer mice have wheels, but there is no indicator there is an alternative to using the mouse wheel in the documentation.)
