Today I was thinking about really cool eye candies I had seen. I thought of one that I would like to make. I made a new crater eye candy. It takes a while to do it, but it turns out really well.

Step 1: Set the entire map to elevation 7.

Step 2: Put a small portion (or large depending on map size) to elevation 1.

Step 3: Put Dirt 3 throughout the crater.

Step 4: Fill with whatever sort of broken objects and other Gaia objects you want!

Now you've got yourself a big crater ready to be the main focus of your scenario!

It sounds really nice. You should post up a screenshot.

It depends if you have a Mac or a PC. On my keyboard, (note: I have Windows ME) there is a button at the top that says-
Print
Scrn
SysRq

Click on that during gameplay and you should hear a beep that confirms your screenshot has been taken.

Now go into the Microsoft Games folder and open your AoE II folder. There should be a folder named Screenshots. Depending on how many you have recently taken, it will be called AOK000. There you have a Screenshot .

Or you can press Control (Ctrl) + F12 for a screenshot of your entire map. It will go in the same folder, except the name will be MAP000.

Then get a good image host and post it up .

Would I be able to post it here directly, or would I need a website?

A website. http://pages.sprint.ca/ is a good website, but you have to name the image with a .txt at the end (because it no longer hosts images).

Besides that, I do not know any other image hosting sites.

I had that sort of idea once: just set all the map to elevation 7 then have it go down slowly into the depths of the earth... don't ask.

AoE II root folder (a.k.a. main folder... it is just called Age of Empires II). Go into the Screenshots section.

Thanks for that idea by the way Yugi, I modified it a bit to make one nice looking river. I'll be sure to mention you in my scenario's credits.

Unfortunatley, while being a gret idea, it limits your terrain capabilities. You won't be able to have anymore hills, beause the terrain is already a Elevation 7.

You can disguise the elevating part with mud and flowers. That's how I disguised an elevation 6, surrounded by elevation 2. The huskarl is on top of elevation 6 and the tower is on the elevating part. The rest is on elevation 2.

Hey, that works pretty good. OK, then, NM my elevation comment...
Man, you really can't tell the difference. I mean, unless someone told you.
