Making a new faction.

Post by Winchester »

I have the idea of the faction I want to make but I dont know exactly how to make it to work in multiplayer / where to make the art and how to create the creatures at all.
I read on the website itself all the tutorial around 10-20 times and it did not work for me, I may have done something wrong.

I would appreciate it a lot if someone could give me a hand.

Thanks in advance

Hello Michael and welcome to the forums.

Well, the tutorial describes only the basics of WML. There are some resources which might help you in making your faction.

About building the faction:
If you find doing it too hard/boring/long, I'd advise you to use another faction's files as a skeleton for your faction.

About creating your own units:

CODING DRAWING If you need something more, go through the wiki. It is really useful ;). So, good luck!

Rather than starting from scratch, you will find it much much easier to look at the code for an existing era or maybe even just modifying an era.

Please avoid pointlessly resurrecting dead topics (this one was five years old, and just saying thanks isn't enough of a reason to revive it).
