this site is for new people here in maproom, please read it for the first time, at the end you will find links to mapping tutorials.
Posting Map Threads:
If you post a thread about a new map by you, please try to include following things in your thread:
1) A title like "xP Mapname" (= 4P Bloodriver). At least we would like to see number of players and mapname
2) Please give us information on your map. What does it look like, whats the point of the map.
4) Downloadlink if possible. If you have no chance to upload your map somewhere, you can put it on www.dowfiles.com (<- please only finished maps) or email the people in Map Testers Thread or just ask in your map thread.
If you follow this simple rules you will have a useful response much faster.
I will maintain a list of several sites here which provide information on mapping, map installing and other topics related to mapping. I started this because we have often the same questions here again and again. If you know any useful threads or tutorial sites please let me know, i will add them to this list:
Editor/Mapping & Mapinstalling:
Rayden's Mapping Ressource Center
Mission Editor Guide
Dawn of War Level Design
Matching colour of fog and sky
RDN Mod Tools FAQ
Map Mod (decals/textures/objects)
Note on some map dimensions:
Thin maps (with dimensions of 128*512, 128*1024, 256*1024) are not working properly. You can only build within a certain zone of the map (in the middle).
Here's an example of the build zone, you can only build between the red lines (approximately)
