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.


Hmm yeah. Doesn't sound like it's a sure thing.

W:EE was supposed to have a modding tool...

If Eugen does release tools for AoA, I will greatly consider buying the game.

Hey there!
Creating custom maps ensures that the game doesn't get boring.
Playing the same maps over and over again has some advantage to win a game, but it get a little monotonous by the time.

When will be the release date approximately, if anyone knows?

They aren't, it's certainly not a licensing issue. The tools are completely doable, but they require a certain time investment. I think it's 50-50: either we get the tools or we don't.

As a bonus they should more or less work for all Eugen games, including Wargame series and RUSE. I have one simple request for Eugen: kindly release the source code for your map editing tool, so we can read it and create tools for the older games if it doesn't work straight off the bat.

Steam forums we want a map editor mad Matt States there will not be a map editor released because they don't have one themselves.

I responded and asked if we could get a high level tutorial of how they create maps as is. Also asked about converting single player maps to multi. (I saw a post where someone did this in the older games)

No, the map tools are unique to each game. Eugen said that porting maps from older Wargame titles to W:RD required as much work as making a new map from scratch, which wouldn't happen if their map tools worked across multiple games.

No, they are not. The base format is essentially similar, with incremental improvements. Not that it matters much.

If someone wants to work on these, I have a lot of useful information. Feel free to contact me.

In a post of eugen I've read that the mapping team is back at work for some maps or stuff like that. I'm curious why the mod of the forum doesn't say anything
