    SMAC: Multiplayer Map Design

    Ten golden rules to create multiplayer maps

    1. Give every player the same chance to reach resources. If you give one player less resources you should give him more units from the start, but not to strong ones.
    2. If you want a quick fight, put the players close together. If you want a harder fight, with better units and more time to build up a base, then put the enemy far away from each other.
    3. Always take care for the landscape and geographic features. Don't just place them anywere on the map, but use them wise. Experienced player will use the landscape and suddenly the map may not any more played the way you thought.

    SMAC Faction Editing: (factionname).txt


    The following editing comments have been compiled and layouted by Marian Hartel.

    General

    • If you give your faction an individual name, you need to rename the *.txt file the same way, you name the *.pcx file.
    • Additionally you need to replace all the occurrences of you overwrote in the faction file and in alpha.txt. Take care to spell them always in the same way in capital letters.
    • Generally you should just change a file together with this tutorial, see if it works, play test it.
    • If it isn't working (also happend to me), change it again and after that, try it again.
    • If it is working, submit the file to the ACZone via email. Please include in the zip-file: a faction file, the changed alpha.txt, the changed *.pcx file and if you want a readme file.
    • If you don't know how zip a file, just send me the files single.
