SCENARIO GUIDE

Here it is.
Couple of days ago there was a guy here asking questions about making a scenario so I've decided to finish my guide and release it. This guide is the fruit of my experience in the editor. Though I've been on AoMH only fo two months, I've been playing AoM since 2003 so I am very experienced in it. That's what made me write this guide so I hope you'll learn something from it. It explains all the things needed to make a good scenario/campaign and it even has pictures in in.

This guide explains the following:

1 The begining - coming up with the story
2 Map Design - making a map
3 Life - populating the map and making towns
3a Special features - some special tricks
4 Triggers - what are they and how they work
5 Cinematics - how to make them and why

If you're a beginer or even an experienced designer download this because we can all always learn something.

The trigger list was made by DarkKnight. I've only copied it from his trigger tutorial and made some minor changes.

I was really impressed with this. Your tips (especially map design) are great for new designers and they work in a very logical way. The pictures are nicely placed, however they were a bit out of focus and weren't too many of them, so that's why you get a 4.5.

I like how you told everyone what each trigger did but you probably had some help from one of the guide pages that escapes my mind for the moment.

Overall, a very nice and easy to read guide that I would recommend to new people who want to make scenarios :). Good job.

A good guide for any noob who wants to learn how to make a scenario. I'm gonna use this to (attempt) to make a good scenario. The spelling was just a little bit dodgy but that doesn't ruin it.

Thanks. I wanted to put more pictures and in the begining every subject has had 3-4 picture explaining it but the file size was 6,5 MB so I've decided to leave only the most important pictures.

wow... this is actually quite an amazing guide. it shows almost everything you need to know in the editor! i make scenarios but I'm surprised i actually learned something! (the imagination part, I'm not too good at that lol) also this is a good reference guide in case if you forget stuff. (maybe like cinematics) Although something bugged me very little though. the gold mine trick you said, where you pile up a lot in one pile..doesn't work all the time. Sometimes villagers get stuck and don't mine at all!(yea, it's weird) There's another way.(infinite gold mines, learned it somewhere)but in overall AMAZING GUIDE.
A MUST HAVE FOR PROS AND NOOBS

Additional Comments:Great Work...Again!

It was blodamozshk. I was close to finishing this and when I saw his request it made me finaly finish and release this guide.
Khan And Steak Dope, if you want lots of pictures but not a massive file size, make sure all the pictures are JPEG or Jpg (what ever). I haven't looked but if they are animated gifs then don't worry I'll be quiet ~ Steak

They were .jpg and I've cropped them to 640*480 but the file was still about 5 MB

I'm quite a noob and this is just what I needed, it's got everything that I didn't know. I think I"ll use it to add a swamp to my heroquest map, great advice!
Although I didn't understand the stuff about the camera, but that's alright
