Map Creating Tools, Please release them!!

Postby darksx » Fri 4 Sep 2015 17:52

EUG, Can you guys please release map creating tools for the game?

I was one of those who created a large map pack for AOW.

I know I'm not the only one who wants to see the tools released. This will only help to further the games popularity and allow may of us to recreate or create new maps for the game.

I for one would love to recreate my older maps for AOA.

Please release the tools!!!

Huge +1!

it can only serve the game.
That's the saddest part of the story. I was getting used to think, after nearly three decades of its existence, that the word "Strategy" was the main cornerstone of the RTS genre and golden age.

I would certainly like to map for this game but I get the feeling that the mapping tools are wrapped up by several licensing interests that it would likely be impossible to provide even if the devs wanted to.

+1. I want that because fan-made maps are always better than original map :lol:.

Devs do what they think the players like.
Player make what they REALLY like. The gap is sometimes huge.

For instance what I said in my topic about Coop maps hugely missing in this game.

You should have watched their stream ( http://www.twitch.tv/focushomeinteractive/v/14248816 ), they announced that they are working on map tools.

Thanks for the link, that was good info.

Hopefully the Devs can make the editor work.

If not, its going to get really boring quickly if the community cant create new maps. As the devs said. it takes a lot of time to make a map. I know that personally. Spent two weeks making one of mine.

Really hope we'll see an "Addons and Mods : Discussion" and "Addons and Mods : Complete" new sections in the forum anytime soon.

Listened to the whole thing it's in the last like 4 minutes of the video and it's that they 'want' to release a map editor but they're not sure it's possible yet. Which I choose to be very suspicious of, of course they'll say they want to and they are investigating while the game is at release, but it seems like RUSE and the other games on this same engine heard a similar story... At 38:50 for the time.
