Map Making Questions and Discussions

Thu Jul 06, 2017 11:31 am

Hello! I want to know how to go into map customization in Napoleonic Wars.  I am thinking about making a new siege map for Minisiege and I don't know how to since I never made a map before. It will be great if someone can give me step-by-step instructions on how to do this.

Thank you!

Hello. A simple Google search probably would of got you to this page here: https://forums.taleworlds.com/index.php?topic=228008.0 

This is a guide to enable the M&B Editor and Map Creator. Hope this is of use to you.

Thanks for the link! I will make good use from this.

This then leads me to my second question. Isn't their a fee or something that costs money to host a server or no? The reason why I asked is because I never hosted a server before. And if a server wants to be active 24/7, they need to pay a fine for it. That is my guess, I am not sure though.

To host a Server you will need to pay unfortunately, this is from experience as I, myself, own my own server on NW. There might be someways around it tho if other Owners put there opinions on this post.

Really? Even if I was alone making a map? That is just stupid. And how do I rotate objects in editor?

Takeout, I think it is because your server is up 24/7. I am not sure though.

Plus I don't even have my own server.

How do I host the server locally? I need to know how in order to make a Map for Minisiege. Otherwise I won't be able to.

Well, I looked up how to host a server locally, but it doesn't help much. I guess I give up now...  :giving-up:

I guess I will wait for the Map Manager to come on so he can help me with this. (Hosting a server locally so I can make a Minisiege map).

One quick question. What are the props that we are NOT allowed to use while making maps? This is so I don't need to change or screw up things while I am creating my map.

I think this thread will help with your questions until futui gets spare time. It's basically someone in the same position as you. 
viewtopic.php?f=28&t=696

Futui said in that thread:

"We can not use mm_stakes mm_stakes_destructible | mm_plank_construct_dummy"

Also if you haven't already make sure to read all of Maximilien's guides about map weight and stuff:
viewforum.php?f=30



Best of luck, I'm not a map maker but I would be more than happy to do whatever I can to help test the map out as a player.

Ah that answers my questions however I still need to know how to host a server locally.
