    Hello all,


    I hope there are still some people around that know how to help me. I want to do some minor critter fixing on the Arcanum main map however I don’t seem to be able to load my edits in game.

    WorldEd seems to save the maps just fine as the edits remain when I re-open the map.



    I get the feeling that the maps I edit aren’t in the correct place, or hierarchy. I’m running WIP6.0

    So there might be an issue to.



    Couple of years back I did edit some maps, but I can remember how I did it.

    Some other questions

    Maps in the Arcanum\data\maps override the ones that are in the .dat files correct?

    Also, when editing the worldmap do my save games become invalid?



    Tnx!

    Hello. I never did it with a map but it should. But there is several files in the map folder, the [named-map] folder and a file without extension which is created only when you have visited it in the game. Maybe it contains also some save info. Try to delete it (in Arcanum/modules/Arcanum/maps) and restart a game maybe?

    Yes. I think each time you change a map, it will invalid your save if you've already visited it (and because it's the main map if the game...).
