Can you use custom maps in multiplayer?

This is a big help. Does anyone else know if it's possible or not?

Custom maps are possible, custom scenarios not.

How do I load a custom map then?

And how do I make custom maps? With the scenario editor?

Custom maps is just a bunch of text on notepad.

You can use custom random maps in multiplayer, but not custom scenarios (what you make with the scenario editor). Random maps are scripts which tell the game how to place terrain and objects and are created using a text editor (e.g. Notepad). You can see the standard random maps in C:\Program Files\Age of Empires 3\RM. Unless you've done some programming, you'll probably have a hard time learning random map scripting at first. If you want to try though, there is some reference material, including a link to a tutorial, here. It's possible that custom scenarios (made using the scenario editor) will be enabled in multiplayer in the future (ES said they hope to do it), but I wouldn't bet on that happening very soon.
