  • How to create multiplayer scenarios?

    Can I create scenarios for multiplayer games? I was going to make a modern day scenario starting with full-blown cities so that it would be a shorter, action packed wargame. However, when I create a scenario, I can only load it up from the single player area. Is there a way to access a custom scenario via multiplayer?

    Thanks in advance!

      The real question is will you still make the scenario if, as I suspect, it is not possible to make it a multiplayer scenario?

      No-one has made a mp scenario before, and I suspect if you searched far enough back, you would find another thread about this.

        Mulitplayer Scenarios

        The inability to create multiplayer scenarios is a big one. Multiplayer scenarios allow the creation of multiplayer civ games that don't take 10 hours to play and you can play them in any era. It is hard for me to understand why a multiplayer map editor and scenario editor is not included, especially since it would not be difficult to make the current editor work with the multiplayer files.

        If anyone know show to edit multiplayer games or scenarios, please let me know.

        Thanks!

          Is there a way to load a save game into Ctp2 multiplayer. If so then you can play your scen save it then load it in multiplayer.

            I have tried, but to no avail. Games I save in the editor or single player, seem to be un-readable by the multiplayer load. Help would be appreciated! Thanks for the input.

              It may be possible with another person (or people) to arrange a game where you organise the units and cities into the arrangement you want. It will take a lot longer, but if that is the only way...
