Map Revisions, Updates and Formatting

Postby Lightfoot » Tue Jul 18, 2017 10:15 am

Hello fellow mappers and modders!

When updating or revising maps *PLEASE* do not reuse the same file names or in-game name as the original.

Reusing names will 100% cause problems with people who:

Do not want to update their version of the map
Do not have the update for their version of the map

...even if it's *YOUR* map.

There's no reason for it and to be blunt, it's a great way to crash games.

Additionally, we're requesting that all future ZIP files be "standardized" to avoid any confusion.

For Interstate '76 (2 folders):

Map Text Files - Contains original text file (if available) and updated text file for new map / version
ADDON - Contains .TER and .LVL files *ONLY* unless there are custom objects

For Nitro Pack (4 folders):

Map Text Files - Contains original text file (if available) and updated text file for new map / version
ADDON - Contains .TER file *ONLY* unless there are custom objects
MISS8 - Contains 8-bit mission file (.CBT, .CTF2, .CTF3, .CTF4, .RAC) *ONLY*
MISS16 - Contains 16-bit mission file (.CBT, .CTF2, .CTF3, .CTF4, .RAC) *ONLY*

***

Thanks in advance.
