Map Mods
 
I have been making my own map mods for different types of battle map types. Looks like you can have anything ranging from 1 large land mass with only a ocean border around the entire mass for mostly land unit battles to having small scattered islands with most of the battles being on the ocean. Or anything in between.

Map Type Name := Detailed Gigantic Map
Map Width := 320
Map Height := 160
Starting Land := 30
Expand Radius := 1
Land Chance Horizontal := 95
Land Chance Vertical := 95
Glob Land Radius := 10
Base Land Region Amount := 180
Base Ocean Region Amount := 120
Use Base Detail Map := TRUE
Number of Base Map Details := 1
Base Map Detail 1 := FullMap_SolidLand_Giant_01.bmp

Map Type Name := Name To Indicate The type of map created
Add your on maps and give it a name that best describes the map type for example: Detailed Gigantic Map Islands

Map Width := Looks Like The Hard Coded Limit is 320
Map Height := Looks Like The Hard Coded Limit is 160

I tried to make maps bigger but it keeps crashing with a invalid bitmap image error So I assume that the size limit is hard coded

Starting Land := 30
Not too sure how this varible effects the overall map
Although it seems to do the same as increasing the Expand & Glob Radius numbers but at a smaller difference in land mass.

Expand Radius := 1
This number seems to make larger groups of land together

Land Chance Horizontal := Determines Amount Of Land Horizonal
Increases the amount of land Horizonal
Land Chance Vertical := Determines Amount Of Land Vertical
Increases the amount of land Vertical
Making these numbers around 90 or below start making lots of islands Increasing these numbers to 99 or 100 make 1 large land mass with only ocean running around the entire edge.

Glob Land Radius := 1
Rasing this number seems to make larger groups of land together and makes the land masses look more boxy in nature.

Base Land Region Amount := 180
Base Ocean Region Amount := 120

This determines the size of a region
The smaller the number the larger the region.
Base Land Region Amount := 20
Base Ocean Region Amount := 20
Gives you larger land & ocean regions but less of them
Kind of having a smaller map but on a larger scale to view.
Base Land Region Amount := 200
Base Ocean Region Amount := 200
Gives you smaller land & ocean regions but lots more of them
Of course you can have anything in between to your prefference.

Use Base Detail Map := TRUE
Only alow for having a detailed map or simple map

Number of Base Map Details := 1
Number of Map Details listed below this line.

Base Map Detail 1 := FullMap_SolidLand_Giant_01.bmp
I have not tried to design my own map details since I am not good at designing my own type of graphics but I suppose this would be neat for thoese who are artistic and can design their own maps details


Overall Summary: These options allow for a map that makes land or naval units the main focus of the battle or any combination in between. I personally like this option so as to change up the maps to keep from being bored with the same old battle types.
