in game RWG Map/POI question...


Recommended Posts

Im thinking about giving the in game RWG another go but I have a couple concerns first...

 

1 - Is SNOW - North and Dessert - South still a thing?

2 - If I wanna use special POIs do I just need to make sure there in the folder for the given MOD I want them for in order for them to be seen?

3 - is it possible to use the same map / layout for everything and have the only thing different be the possible POI's?

for the snow and desert i would stick to tradition on those as for 2 and 3 i would assume yes but dont take my word on it :)

Download nitrogen and you can customise most things there, i use a POI compo pack (its in the mods sector of forum to download) and am loving it. highly recommend.

Or maybe use KingGen since it is supported while Nitrogen has been abandoned

This!

Nitrogen maps are good. They aren’t super realistic but they are fun maps and fun wins over realistic imo

I was trying KG and wasnt really liking it as much as Nitro was hoping the In Game was better LOL.

 

BFT -I thought SNOW north and Dessert South was a thing :(

 

Both Nitro and KG allow customizations in regards to the desert and snow.  When you generate the maps, you can select different options regarding those biomes.

 

The game's RWG creator normally places the biomes opposite of one another.  However, it is not necessary North / South.  The current map I have is West / East.

I have a question, Is it impossible to use the same map when you have a mod with special POI or when you add POIs  ?

For example I need to have a special map for WOTW it cant be the same as the mods that only have Vanilla POI?

It's typically not impossible, but takes some work.  If a mod requires special POIs that are not part of the vanilla POIs, you will need to generate a map with those POIs (custom POI list for either Nitro or KingGen).  You can also import the POIs if you use the game's RWG creator.  I believe you can also import POTs into Nitro/KingGen maps, but it is easier to do it when you are generating the map rather than after.

 

Detailed instructions on what you need to do can be found in the map generation threads in Mods -> Tools.
