kitty on catnip wrote: also, the pixels seemed a 'bit' off...I know I started the sizes in the original 'new file' menu, ex: Length 750 height 365. That was my size for the past week...then somewhere, it changed too 748/ 365, and even a 750/366.

If any of that makes any sense with the pixel sizes, please let me know any reasons that may be, and if I can fix it.

i'm assuming you started both the luxb file and the image/background file with the exact same attributes.
if so, to resolve it, open map.luxb in editor, go to info, set the size you want (750x365) save and close it.
open the image file in photoshop or whatever picture editor you are using and set the attributes to the same size and save)

when you reopen the map.luxb in the editor and you insert the picture it should work fine. if it's off centered a bit, you will have to move the shapes using option 4 (and selecting them all at once) and use the arrow keys for fine precision centering. i experienced something very similar when i made my first map.
something to do with the zoom in and out of the map editor that alters the the size by a tiny fraction. with my problem if i remember right, i opened the map file, zoom in and out before opening the background. when i did open it, there seemed my borders where like a fraction of a hair off from where i left them last time. problem was that during the zoom out the map didn't scale to the exact original dimensions and with the insertion of the background image it got saved with those new attributes. then again i could be wrong and that simply happened do to my inexperience at the time with the editor.

Did you upload just the theme? Because I don't see any indication that you uploaded a map.

Here it is, finally. Over 30 hours of man-time put into it, not to mention countless hours it took to study, play with, think about, everything I could do with the foreground/background/overground, etc. :x

I hope you enjoy it :cry:

:P

M Bauer ( or anyone) , by the way...when it asks for the 'Theme Name', what EXACTLY is that?


I have a .luxb file named 'Maryland' (Upper Case M)

I also have a 'Theme Folder', titled 'Maryland'.

Do I just type 'Maryland', or is it 'Maryland.luxb'??

Thnx for sorting out the confusion

The theme name is the case-sensitive name of the folder that holds your background, foreground and overground files in the Support\Themes\ directory. In your case, it would just be "Maryland"

how does Lux attain my .luxb file then.

I am a computer moron, so that question might seem moronic.

Nice work mbauer! I think Dustin mentioned that he wants all the counties in Britain done next, followed by all the Russian subdivisions. Chop chop, no time for slacking. Luxtober starts the day after tomorrow!

Hi, I'm new here and I have 1 question: Where I can download any of the these maps and how to play them in the game? I haven't found a single download link to these scenarios. Only thing I can download is a .jpg file map.

Just click on "plugins" and you should have access to the maps.
