 Post subject: Modifications to Maps?
PostPosted: Sun Mar 06, 2005 8:31 am 
I have been fooling around with .map files for a couple of weeks now.... and its got me completely stymied!

All I'm trying to do is "mow down" some forested areas.
Originally I tried to do this by simply replacing "f"
characters with " " (blanks).

With the editor, I got a read error.

Then I tried replacing the blanks with "d" characters
(which I think are "field" hexes).

Again, I got a read error.

And finally, just as a test to make sure I hadn't corrupted
my test.map file, I replaced the "d" characters with "f"
characters (restoring the map file to its original configuration)...

and voila! .... the file reads just fine!

How does one eliminate some forested areas in maps?

It's going to be very difficult to generate some variant
scenarios if I can't do a little greenscape work!

Hope someone has some helpful tips!

Regards,
