Red MP Maps released for 1.14

Post by Atreides »

I've updated it for 1.14 (actually worked but constantly popped up invalid wml notice - yes that makes no sense :)

Some very neat maps to add some spice to the game. XP boosts and teleports on several.

Oh I didn't think you were around anymore, I would have asked first had I known. :-) Glad that you like it. I changed nothing except put in a extra check for whether a unit was standing on a XP point. In 1.12 it didn't care but in 1.14 it pops up a notice now if the xp point is vacant. Trying to store an empty variable is what caused it. It was just a minor annoyance (xp was still given) but since I quite like these maps I wanted to play them in 1.14 so I took it upon myself to fix it and figure I might as well share it.

Red MP Maps Version 2 with new terrains released

Post by Atreides »

Version 2.0.0 is released for Wesnoth 1.16 using the brand new terrain graphics.

Outdoor Dwarven Keep/Castles are the new type now. Deprecated mushrooms replaced by the new type as well. These don't alter map balance or play, they just look better.

Map #1 (Hexburg) has received the new Snowy Great Tree in place of a regular one which was in the middle of snow fields! This alters the underlying terrain from grassland to arctic. The cobblestone road south of the tree is now Icy Cobbles. The roads in the central Hexburg are changed the same way to match the snowy villages there. This latter terrain change only affects custom addon units that look for Snow/Ice type terrains for a special bonus such as the Lonely Era. For most it is still just flat terrain type.

p.s. Using the current map editor on these older maps actually shrank them quite a bit (more efficient format I suppose) so RMM has gone on a diet... : )

AFAIK (without checking the maps themselves), the only change would be removing whitespace. The map editor used to put in lots of padding so that the columns lined up, and now it doesn't.

I think you've hit the nail on the head. I did look at the raw data and saw that some of the old ones are lined up while the newest ones are very compact.

Another change the editor made was to strip out 2 tags map= and border_size= IIRC. These maps go back to 1.6 or 8 or something so it is no surprise.
