I was able to follow the instructions and create a new scene and test it on my computer with the dedicated server info. So good job with the instructions because I am a "computard". My question is: what do I do with the scene I created, how do I "package" it for upload to the forums?
From the first post here:
- When you are finished and want to get your scene hosted on a public server: send the SceneObj/scn_scene_X.sco file with the terrain code and outer terrain mesh name to the server admin, and they can add the scene to whatever slot is available, renaming the .sco, changing the terrain code and mesh.
You could also check some other scene maker's threads for examples: they are linked from the "knowledge database" thread. There are various file hosting sites around, and I don't have any specific preferences: for myself I either host files on my local webserver if only a few people will download, or host on something like mbrepository for more widely released things; you could request an account there, but other sites might be faster or easier for just hosting a scene.
Help! I have a problem: to create a scene, I castles and everything but I can not put the 4 factions ... ie all sticks say ("lazbourg castle"). As I think the factions?
If you check the "F2" information in edit scene mode, you will find how to set up the castle sign var1 and var2 values correctly: you must set the sign to the correct castle number and choose the name from the list at the end of strings.txt. All signs associated with a castle should use the same name, otherwise I'm not sure which the script would select.
