[SOLVED] I need a step by step HOW TO map creation, please

Post by Doruletz » 25 Dec 2016, 00:02

I want to make maps, but even more, I want to edit some maps I have.

Like this map:

Has all kinds of crap in the SCAVS middle strip divider, see snapshot:

which I want to replace with one or two rows of CANNON FORTRESSES, like in this snapshot:

Can some help me do that, or do it for me.
I would prefer a step by step HOW TO, that way I will know how to edit/create maps in the future.
Thanks a lot for your help.

@ "Tzeentch":

Laugh all you want, buddy...
The idea behind the divider barrier row(s) of Cannon Fortresses is to prevent early rush in online multi-player games or turtle hunting for oil in skirmish games against dumb "S" single minded AIs...
I kinda like to play the game to at least Tank Killer or Scourge Missile and Assault / Heavy Cannon or even Gauss Cannon, all on either Tiger or Vengeance bodies.
It kinda sucks to just end it at Mini Rocket Pods, Flamers and Heavy MG on Viper or Cobra bodies...
So... as it usually takes at least a double row of mortars/bombards or howitzers to defeat the Cannon Fortress barrier, that gives players enough time to research to more advance weapons and bodies...
Another thing... In my opinion, this game is supposed to be a pure tank on tank battle, so whenever I have a choice I disable V-TOLs and Cyborgs. Very rarely I even choose to play a no artillery game too.

Thanks, Berg.
Helpful as always...
Do you know if that SharpFlame works in Linux?
I'm guessing it does, since they mention GitHub...

EDIT:
Awwwhh, shoot...
It requires MONO, and I always disable/uninstall and permanently block that Microsoft piece of crap.

I guess I will have to either boot of a Live USB stick with persistence to do all my map editing, or use my wife's computer (the only one in my house that still has Window$, as she needs it for some astrology / numerology software)
