Caribbean v2

Author File Description

File Details
Game Version: TAD
Hi there! This particular RM isn't too complicated, It's just a more forested version of the original ES version. The lighting has been changed too. It's not necessarily balanced, but offers some better looking islands- or at least, in my opinion. unfortunately I haven't been able to put in cliffs, since no code exists in the original RMS for it yet, and I'm not sure how to proceed in creating a //CLIFFS sorta thing (like how there's //FOREST and //MINES). Also, I apologise for creating this for TAD, at the moment I can't use the vanilla AOE3, so I can't test it, etc... so, sorry! Still, you could try it with the original.

So, download and rate (not too harshly :)!), and have fun!

Also, if you wish to use it to make it even better, be sure to mention what I've done here.

Thankyou!

MeoHat For some reason this map doesn't show up under my custom map list. Any ideas?

did you put it into the my games folder, or the C:/ directory? it has to go into the My documents\My Games (etc) folder to show up on that list... otherwise, i got nothing... unfortunately i'm no modder :)
Teutonic Twit Loading it to RM3 (TAD random)...doesn't show up for me either.

oh... well... i suppose i can't help. i'm not sure about this, but perhaps it's the xml file? it's possible that the directories in it don't match up, i which case, i hope you backed up the original...

i guess it's back to mah other maps, and to the bl5 designing! i wonder if there's some sorta order in what we're going to do now...

oh, and for those who know how to edit RMS's, here's what i did:

EDIT: seems there's a limit to how much i can put in, so i'll just abandon ship.

RF_Gandalf This does not show up because of 2 problems. First you need to edit the xml file using the following guide:
http://wiki.heavengames.com/age/Creating_.xml_files_for_custom_RMS

Second - change the file names and give it a different map name when you edit the xml file - if it has the same name as an official map and you try to play it, the official one gets played.

ah, thanks! just who i wanted too. seriously.

I'll get right on it. I forget if i said this, but i fixed up my cliff problems by editing the water types and cliff types... i've had some pretty good looking RMS's so far. I also must have done something to reduce the occurence of this odd glitch where the water doesn't 'beautify' properly and ends up looking really strange.

but I'll have to do that stuff first.

:)
Ashtray001 There's a problem with the Town Center positions... The trees are blocking the placement of one of the town centers. The game ends before you can start playing already :/
