Default EA: Master Blaster [NOOB GAME]

Some of you may know me from the last game I ran, which I think was (is) a reasonable success. Unfortunately I got knocked out, but I am now back and ready for more. This game is targeted for newish (or poor!) players, as well as those who have time constraints. We will have 72hr turns, but quick hosting will be on.

Game name: Master Blaster
Era: Early Age
Number of players: 8
Map: Shahrivar (changed from Urraparand)
Diplomacy: Binding, NAP only with pre-arranged turn duration
Settings: Standard
Mods: CBM 1.6 (no banners)
Turns: 72hrs

Players:

Astyreal - Abyssia
BlackGuard - Mictlan
rmcolosimo - Caelum
Erebus - Ulm
Debaser8 - Kailasa
Num - Yomi
legolasjrt - Pangea
Penguin Zero - T'ien Chi

Blackguard you sure you count as a newb?


Anyway, silly question (proves I'm new). How do you load in a new map (i.e. where to drop the file)? Only ever used the standard maps.

well, I'm playing in a lot of games(including your newbie only game as well as another newbie game), but I'm still very much a newbie... only joined like 2 months ago and I haven't even finished 1 MP game yet, although a few are awfully close to being finished(with me losing)...

That's not what I meant...I downloaded the map, I just need to know how to view it in the dominions 3 app itself.

oh, well each map has 2 files, .tga and .map. you need to cut/copy both of them into your maps folder inside the dominions 3 folder, for example: C:\Program Files\dominions3\maps

Well I am a poor player, that pains me to admit, but it is the truth.

Could I play Caelum?

Thanks.

Astyreal, most of the maps come as zip files. Just extract to C:\Program Files\dominions3\maps and it is usually set up to work.

Is it different for Mac? Because I moved the tga and map files to the directory, but it's causing the app to crash.
