Label on story

Postby SFault » October 10th, 2017, 9:50 am

I'm having semi-dynamic big map and I was wondering if there is a way to put text on the bigmap somehow. I would like to name places just like you can name places with [label] in scenario maps. I could make images of the text and use the [image] but that is more troublesome than I'm looking for. At least the API doc doesn't mention [label] or similar in the [story] tag.

edit: also is there a way to highlight image in story?

As far as I know, you'll have to do it the hard way. The bigmap utils for campaigns like Liberty or Heir to the Throne apply images to X/Y co-ordinates on a background overlay, so I suspect that's just how the engine works.

Making a few transparent text images and then placing them over the map shouldn't be too troublesome though, and it looks like a small definition.
