Hey everyone, we've got some fantastic news for you!

Remember how you players always asked for custom maps and we always said "never; not possible!". Well, we changed our minds and decided to implement custom maps, whatever it takes. And a lot of time it will certainly take, so please don't ask for estimations - just trust us, we're working hard on it right now.

We cannot give you a lot of details, but there will definitely be an editor where you can upload your own map image and then draw country borders. You will be able to add all country and city data, and add your own units, fully customized. Scenarios will remain similar to what they are now, but will be able to be based on custom maps as well.

As you can imagine, this will infuse a lot of interesting opportunities into the game - you will be able to add a map/scenario based on Game Of Thrones, Lord Of The Rings, WWI/WW2, American Civil War or even a space-based map (why not?).

Because we're now fully concentrated on this massive undertaking (which feels very much like creating a new game from scratch), there won't be any big updates for a while. But then - BAM! - a huge one! So, be patient

Cheers!
Ivan & Amok

When I first heard about this update I thought all you would be able to do was make your own maps with custom borders and stuff. Now with this I was already pumped up. BUT nowhere did I hear that you will be able to customize units/make new ones. AND be able to for example make an Atilla leader for the Huns in my scenario. AND be able to assign nation specific units?! This made me cry. I can't wait to begin making a Greece map, and admins I LOVE YOU.

Also one last thing I have the individual scenario pack for this will I have to buy an entirely new pack in order to enjoy these new features?

You weren't paying attention - right in the news post it says "You will be able to add all country and city data, and add your own units, fully customized". I also confirmed nation-specific units, custom commanders and rare units earlier in the comments.

I cannot give details about the pack, but most probably it will be merged with the scenario pack somehow.

I agree, something like, a demo, 1 map for 1 non-premium account (I know the person has to make a new account each time) OR maybe, limited maps, like only Europe and Africa or something.

How about a Custom Scenario Map maker engine or something, OR do a competition to get the AW community to design new maps, maybe give templates or something. This'll be REALLY fun!!! Because not many games have Map Editors!!! (Hint hint)

IF we could create units based on prexisting stats, could you give us a base 'nuke' unit to play around with?


^Agree

We should be able to recruit nukes in a Region Capital and nukes will have a special effect
like a 25% income and recruitment penalty

and we can edit the penalty amount in scenarios
or disable the unit

Wait, so you guys are working on a way to do the graphic designs of the maps as well? If so, that makes things a lot easier.

I've been spending the past forever and a half trying to do a detailed, AW-seeming physical map of a region that doesn't exist, so I guess I'll wait for that ^_^

Hold on, I think there's been a slight misunderstanding here. You will be able to draw country borders and place cities in the map editor, but there's no way we can make the background image itself editable (anyway, something like Photoshop is much better for it). So you have to either find an existing map and use it, or try to draw your own.

You have never programmed, I doubt you have ever even tried, so why don't you shut up and be grateful that these guys are even making this instead of moaning about how long it is going to take.

I for one would rather has quality, bug free release, rather than a rushed, bug ridden and untested release that you seem to be so eager for.

for the record, if anyone wants to know what it's like to program. well imagine learning a foreign language, then writing large mathematical algorithms in a giant wall of text, then walking through that text to make sure it all work fine, then adding more algorithms, and making sure they all link perfectly.

sounds like fun right? now please be patient.

We will probably have a test server for this, so that everything can be tested and balanced before a public release.
