Simply generates a 1v1 observer map from any AOE3 map.
Tested with TAD.
Start the application.
Select map to generate from
select output folder (should be in “My documents\My Games\Age of Empires 3\RM3” or something like that)
Start TAD and select custom maps, your new map should be included now.
Run a FFA with any number of players, only player 1 and 2 will have spawn points.
Updated, added batch generate from *.set files
I have released a new version of the AOE Observer Map Creator.
I would have rather not, but as it turns out there was a bug in some of the maps, like for instance Great Plains.
A tnx goes out to pftq (the original creator of the first observer maps).
I never looked at his maps before starting with the map creator, and I suppose I should have since there were a few "loop holes" I wasn't aware of :)
Anyhow, new features:
2v2 maps - set it up as a team game (no FFA), make sure you have equal teams, add computer players to balance the teams.
Observers has to select non native civs since otherwise TP's will be visible from start!
*set files - if generated from *.set files, a new *.set file is created with generated maps in it.
