After creating/modifying a map you should always check it for common bugs.
There is a script built-in the editor which does most of the work for you.Before you can use this script you have to change the settings.
To do this open the "File
" menu and select the "Options...
Select "Map validation
" from the list to view the map validation settings.
"Automatically run validation after each change" This can be slow and I recommend you to turn it off. Just run the map checker each time when you safe your map.
Tick all boxes, except for:
"Completely blocked square" - Not a problem
"Two arches of the same type on the same square" - Not a problem, perfectly possible as long as two arches are not in the same layer (doesn't matter for system objects).
"Square without floor" - Not a problem
"Critical slaying characters" - Warns for using a hyphen ( - ) as a slaying character, while it is allowed. "slaying" is mainly used for paths to files and key strings.
" to save the settings.When you're saving a map you should use the script.
To run the map validator open the "Tools
" menu and select "Check map
". In a moment you will see the "7: Warnings
" tab turn red. This means the map validator found some problems on your map. If nothing happens, there are no warnings. Open the "7: Warnings
" tab and click a warning to see an explanation and how you could solve the issue. If you think you what you did is correct and shouldn't be a problem or you can't solve a problem, you should ask a developer
for help.Feedback on this tutorial is greatly appreciated. ~Kiana~
