    Default NTW3 announced and Map Pack and Tools released for ETW!!!



    With the release of the ETW Map Pack and editing tools, The Lordz are happy to announce that work has already begun on our latest mod for Empire: Napoleonic Total War III. This release focuses on the cartography side of the Lordz work, featuring 15 new maps for Empire, tools to make your own maps, and an in-depth tutorial to guide you in their use.

    DOWLOAD LINK TO THE NEW MAP PACK:
    Contains original maps plus 9 new maps released in mid June of 09. See here for screenies.

    Install Instructions:
    -Unzip (unrar) the file using WinRAR. http://www.rarlab.com/download.htm
    -Drop the pack into your ETW folder path: ...\program files\Steam\steamapps\common\empire total war\data

    The map pack is meant for vanilla installations of ETW only. If you would like to attempt to rectify this, then please read the text provided in the spoiler below. You mod at your own risk and the Lordz do not take responsibility for any mishaps caused while tinkering.
    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 
    Hi all,

    To solve the compatibility issue with The Lordz map pack with any other mod, the following lines need to be added to the localisation.loc file.

    As it is not possible to have several localisation files, as is the case with db files, it isn't possible for The Lordz to make the map pack compatible with a mod, without altering the mod pack itself.

    So any modding team wishing to make their mod compatible with the map pack, should include these lines in their localisation file. If no changes are made to this file by a mod, this alteration is not necessary.


    Code:
    battles_description_desert	Dry River map - created by The Lordz Modding Collective	False
    battles_localised_name_desert	Dry River	False
    battles_localised_name_beachy	Quiberon Bay	False

    We are sincerely sorry for this inconvenience, yet this matter is hard-coded into ETW.

    Regards

    the LMC


    The LMC's map pack includes the following:

    BEACH
    A shallow beach invites invasion. Invaders start hemmed in the beach, facing 1 defender. other forces need to march up from inland.

    DESERT RIDGE
    A featureless battlefield with a large ridge in the centre of the map, with lower ground both sides, there are rocky peaks on top of the ridge.

    DRY RIVER
    A wide, dried up river bed, runs across the middle of the map from side to side.

    LOWHILLS
    This is a “countryside” type map with many small hills, villages and woods, with a network of roads running between them.

    LOWLANDS
    The ground slowly rise’s from low to high with several woods and small villages dotted around the landscape.

    If you happen to have the Map Pack installed then you can only play with others that also installed it. You will not be able to join any game hosted by someone without the pack.

    So will we be able to modify now, with the new tools, the vanilla campaign maps?

    The tools aid in the creation of battle maps.

    They are not for modifying Campaign maps.

    Vimes had never got on with any game much more complex than darts. Chess in particular had always annoyed him. It was the dumb way the pawns went off and slaughtered their fellow pawns while the kings lounged about doing nothing that always got to him; if only the pawns united, maybe talked the rooks around, the whole board could've been a republic in a dozen moves. -Thud!, Terry Pratchett

    Is the Windmill on the Beach map a new building? I experienced my first ever video driver failure when I zoomed in to see it up close. Looked great for the instant I got to see it! Hopefully it was just a random bug, 'cause the map looked great.

    I am going to try them! One question; is this for multi-player only or are they in the maps for the campaign?

    I believe that these maps are both for SP and MP use. They are not campaign maps! Just battle maps.

    I tested the Beach map, quite a good job ! 4 vs 4, epic battle and great landscape. Btw, the fact that the "Quiberon Bay" you mapped is not far from where I live makes it even more attractive to me. + rep

    Well yes, you have been able to do that since the game was released...

    If you mean make new models then no, to my knowledge at least.
