Grid Utility for EE2 and EE2X

Post by Loewenherz » 02 May 2018, 12:00

----------Grid pack---------

This is a Utility for Empire Earth 2, a 510 x 510 Map which i have divided in 10 x 10 tile squares using the Beach or ForestRoot texture. For EE2 and EE2X the Gridpack should be have a Map for ervery clima zone. I relase the maps one by one.

You can use the grids, to create exactly Multiplayermaps or to make Maps with a image or a realistic Map from a Land. With the Resize Tool you can make smaller versions from the Map. In the attachment are a Grid that you can use how in the example picture.

It's a simple thing to do, but is quite time consuming, so I hope this saves people a lot of hassle and headaches (and yellow grids swimming in front of their eye).


Enjoy - Loewenherz

• Create a little scenario, give her a modification to display someone skybox. Make this, because without this trick, greater Maps doesn't display a skybox with the ChangeToSkybox command. (My old grid here, not use the trick! Better you make a new grid, if you will use the skybox command.)
• Now change the Map Size to 10x10. Paint with a beach texture the edge. Than chanche to 20 x 10. Again you paint the edge.
• That make you so often, until you have the grid for the map. I recommend as map size 512 x 512.
• Than test the skybox, if there works, the grid works perfect.
• You can with Gimp create very easy a new grid for your own map or scenario.

PS: Change under your configuration file in the EE2 folder the scroll speed. If you have as map size 512 x 20 or 512 x 30 you can faster paint the edge. :D :D :D
