ad a new sea zone to an existing map
color settings for the map
values must be a 6 digit hex number
should we draw territory names
screenshot overlay stuff
that's whats the map properties are about
@Numetalfan that looks fine. Obviously something else causing it. Have to wait for map Wizard wc I guess
what about the naming of the sea zones, where has this to be done?
@Numetalfan yea idk you could check centers and make sure they're in there. I don't know much about the graphics part
Sea Zone numbers are done as decoration in the decorations.txt file. I personally do not like running the "Decorations Placer" under "Map Creator". Usually I just poke and guess with a text editor until it looks right.
Have you updated the smallMap.jpeg. I'm looking into what might be causing your color problems.
For the Sea Zone numbers, I have the following in the directions.txt:
Make sure that the images for these new Sea Zones are in the 'misc' folder.
Also Sicily and Malta:
As to the missing colors, like @beelee stated it probably has something to do with map.properties.
I did all this already and it worked.
Colors: but I doubt it's the map.properties, I copied that file from the WWII_v3.
Or this copy&paste is the reason for the effect
still have the graphical problems,
small map fine
main map white color for the countries
what might be the reason for that effect?
YES, everything works now, no more errors.
yet, I missed some details:
as you can see the new sea zones 66,67 und 68 do exist, but they have no numbers graphically.
sea zone 16 now belongs to the western part of Black Sea, but it has no number too. even worse the "16" is located where now the SZ 68 should be
there is another problem - the whole map ist white, the territories do not have the colors of the countries, e.g. blue for Italy.
How to fix those problems?
You have to open the relief tiles... find the tiles where the numbers should go... and draw them in manually with a graphics program.
@Numetalfan If I had to guess I am thinking you saved the relief tiles with a solid white background... if you turn off "show reliefs" in game and can see the actual colours when they are off. That will confirm my suspicions.
THX for the advice,
that problem was already solved.
my last problem is the one with the white color all over them map, see the screenshot.
this are the options:
I don't see relief options
There is no easy fix for this. You would need to redo the relief tiles.
Let us know.
perfect - now it looks normal
the new terroritories and sea zone decoration pictures do not look like the original ones
what is the
- font size
of those pictures, e.g. Alaska.png or b17.png
