Just how tricky is the world builder to use? I never tried the COH one.. but I really fancy having a go.

Maybe I should get some practise on the coh one before this one is released.

If you practice with the COH1 worldbuilder the COH2 worldbuilder will feel similar.

I agree. I would advise learning how all the functions of the interface work (and the theory behind them) if you can.

It really helps with the design process of maps if you have a knowledge of whats actually going on 'behind the scenes'

I myself used to think that the better a map looked - the better it was. But it turned out that I was overlooking key issues such as performance that can really kick a map in the nads.

If you can find any tutorials I would def advise getting your head around them if you can.

Edit: in the recent stream, it was hinted that something big was coming that 'the community is gunna really love' the WB is involved, I just know it! (I hope)

My thoughts went to the worldbuilder as well actually.

Also, any one got any good tutorials on map-design principals? Did a few for compstomps with friends with the first worldbuilder. Messed around quite alot with it, but cant say Im a pro.

Iirc one of the mapmakers from the Eastern front mod made some decent ones (Walki?) you could try looking for some of them. I'd look on their Moddb page maybe..

Both of those links are good, Onkelsams is from the old days but still valid. The second one, mine, is new but it still has some gaps but covers most stuff.

If you google coh map tutorial youll get alot of hits for technical stuff.

Hello, everyone! My name is Leonidas and this is my first post here. I was browsing the site when I saw this discussion, and I just decided to sign up and jump in :). I'm currently writing a Steam guide on World Builder, if anyone's interested. When it's finished (after WB release, that is), it should hopefully cover, well, pretty much everything. Right now it's in an early stage of development, but if anyone wants to check it out, they can do so here.
