The OFFICIAL Scenario Editor Thread

In this thread, discuss what features you would like to see in a new editor. Share your thoughts and ideas. Please one idea per post please.


News

    Well, I finally found some time to compile all the posts in this thread. Maybe later, when I have some more time, I will categorize them.


Current list

  1. Allow alteration of all unit stats (name, HP, attack, armor, speed, etc.) with or without triggers —CrystalCrown
  2. An object editor —Jawn Henry
  3. Trigger/condition/effect copier/paster/deleter!!! —Darkmaster
  4. The ability to edit terrain with triggers during a scenario —zyxomma100
  5. How about a trigger that lets your unit glow, like when you display instructions. Then they would know what unit is talking. —Dark_Aro
  6. They ought to fix the darned ">" being added when the instruction text is in red. —Jawn Henry
  7. Play sound; stop sound; fade sound; Create Danger Element; Alter Elevation —magne gb
  8. My opinion is the better the Scenario Editor the longer the life of the game will be! —Dark Side of Day
  9. Shorter and more wide variety of text colours —WGF_Innkeeper98
  10. Wouldn't it be better if we had a small popup window with all the colors like the one in MS Paint (under custom colors) and we drag to the color we like and lighten/darken it? —Darkmaster
  11. How about a rotate object trigger? Could be very helpful for cutscenes. —Nabrimn
  12. Hmm, maybe a building editor —AoC_DaVe
  13. A condition in a trigger being 'selected civ' —WGF_Innkeeper98
  14. It would be nice if you could change civilization names for fantasy campaign —Arthur of Kings
  15. The ability to use the scenario editor with multiple people online. As well as the ability to test the scenario, if it is a multiplayer scenario right out of the editor online. —iNtRePiD
  16. A good waterfall please!! —Hector Ocampo
  17. I would like to see bridge hp's and edit bridge names —War_SythVic279
  18. I think there should be a sound editor in the editor so you wouldn't have to exit or minimize the game every time you wanted to change a sound. —Magic_Amazon
  19. I also think there should be a choice of fonts and sizes for text in the editor instead of having just one font and size. —Magic_Amazon
  20. Another thing I would like in the editor is a trigger or something so that units can get on a horse —Magic_Amazon
  21. But KEEP the AoK editor format. I just love it! —Shiva
  22. I would like to see more triggers in a new editor. —CrystalCrown
  23. You should be able to copy AOK homemade scenarios to AOE3! —HIGH EMPEROR
  24. I like to change the name of a unit before the unit being created. —Legolas_1
  25. Volcano; Shovels on the floor; Weather; Better Bridges; Cheat units available in list; You can actually put an AVI at the start —LithiumXL
  26. A way to figure out how much damage an object has taken with triggers. —zyxomma100
  27. A way to lay out your scenario's in the campaign on a map, kinda like the campaigns that came with the game. Adds to creativity —King Jeff 2

I would like to see bridge hp's and edit bridge names

For example, you can destroy a bridge for defense against somone, and in histoical campaigns name the bridges

Another thing I would like in the editor is a trigger or something so that units can get on a horse and look just like that unit on a horse and a trigger to take a unit of the horse so it looks like a cavalry unit on foot and to be able to edit unit's looks by adding cloaks helmets and other things onto a unit even different colour armour!

You can always edit your previous messages and add to them, instead of posting repetitively. The edit button is above each post. Sorry, if you already know of this.

Quoted from Topic Post:

Please one idea per post please

I think I might have caused this, Darkmaster. He was only following instructions.

I dunno if anyone here hav post the same thing.... Anyway, I want a HERO creator or sumthin like that.

I say it'd be great to be able to create a new unit in the editor, which for you could fix an outfit (e.g. Paladin, Champion, etc) a name, HP, speed, armor, attack speed, et cetera. But there should be a limit with those, a reasonable limit, especially it's stupid if there is some kind of a "SUPER-SUPER-UNIT!!!!" which has HP of a castle, attack as well and moves faster than anything.

Yes an object creator would be nice.

What about a trigger that changes the rotation of a unit? This way we don't have to do the Walk far then back thing for a unit to turn around.

hello all

Hey..as long as i am concerned. Add any additional stuff that you want (the AoM editor list will do very fine, thank you)

But KEEP the AoK editor format. I just love it!

You should be able to copy AOK homemade scenarios to AOE3!

(though slightly different, with eqivalents to each AOK unit + terrain).
