While most of you have probably just begun delving into the depths of AoW3; we’re already getting questions about the editing tools. Designer Narvek has prepared this tutorial video, showing the core features. The Editor allows you to create your own worlds and paint terrain features with ease. Place armies, cities, and resource structures with the click of a button. Create your own heroes, and set default diplomatic states between sides. Tech savvy editors can script interactive events such as quests and create entire campaigns, including story scenes with custom art and voice tracks – just like the campaigns shipped with the game!
Players can create their add their own campaign maps. We have a layered PSD template of the campaign map here (50MB).
You can create your own story sequences, using your own art and voice files for narration.
The Level Editor is accessible from the Launcher (the Misc. Tab). Note that the Level Editor is offered for free as a courtesy to fans. It is not tech-supported, not localized and its system specs might differ from the main game (like you’ll need a higher resolution than the minimum spec.) Scripting Guide coming soon! We’re looking into setting up a platform for people to share their maps. Maybe @ AoW community @ Heaven Games wants to make space available too?
