A few days ago I was able to finally get the update to AOM:TT via Steam, and it (with a reasonable abundance of free time) has given me a hankering to do some scenario design stuff.

I've been out of the loop for quite a while now (apparently the last time I logged in was 2014 ), so I've been browsing through the site and reading the news, but I wonder if someone could precis what has been happening in the SD community, especially in relation to the version of steam, any new trigger packs etc, or new design paradigms

As an aside, I'm very pleased to see old green Yeebie all grown up and in charge :O.

Thanks All!

Hey there, good to see you around

Fine desginers by the name of Zenophobia and NickonHawk have released masterpiece scenarios, so anything by them is recommended. A good example is Ferguson Mansion.

It took forever for the devs to update the EE in any way, albeit lacking in success as it seems multiplayer scenarios that use cinematics are broken because of a bug, but there is a fix...

nottud, who's also come back in the past year figured out a fix here.

It has been quite quiet over the past couple years, but Yeeb and I are looking at hosting some events to hopefully drum up some more activity. Suggestions welcome!

Thanks that's helpful.

Are there any must have downloads from here (or I guess the Steam workshop) that I should get.

I'm essentially starting from a brand new copy of AOM:TT so I have nothing I used to have anymore.

Also, bit of a random one, do you know why a scenario that I created might crash AOMX when loading it to play?

Would missing trigger files/protox changes/lighting affect it?

Cheers

Oh god there are so many problems with the extended edition.

So the new patch has essentially destroyed any scenario which has a cinematic (exception being right at the start) - so a huge swathe are now unplayable. Nottud has found a fix for this and I've patched some of my files.

Also about 10% crash at the start for no apparent reason, just try again and hope.

Old scenario camera angles are a bit funny. On the plus you can now select more than 30 units and zoom out further before the lag hits. Nottud has also made some fairly mad maps.

Essential files will be y and z triggers as well as all the standard other ones.

Do you mean alongside the standard triggers, or are there standard trigger packs that lots of people go for?

Also I remember back in the day there was some editor mods that made it mroe friendly to use - is there anything like that for AOMEE?

Sad to hear that EE has issues, I was so excited to see it on Steam and with a new civ!
