Pre-made maps in AtB
« on: 17 September 2019, 19:57:10 »
With all of the awesome maps that have been made, is there any possibility for AtB to choose a pre-made map rather than a randomly generated one?

As soon as the game puts you into the MM Lobby you can choose your maps freely from there.
About to start an Atb campaign? But sadlly overwhelmed with the options you get there. Have no clue?
Resolve, Commander! Look here to get startet!

Like OP, I would like to have AtB randomly choose the maps, not choose them myself. Can the custom maps be added to the Boards directory, or anyplace that would allow AtB to make the choice?

It's not a bad suggestion. There would have to be some work done on picking an appropriately sized map for the scenario. However, as usual, it would be best to put it up on github, since we can keep track of it there.

I have submitted the idea to GitHub, titled "Enhancement: custom maps randomly chosen by AtB." issue #1291

Cool. As always, no guarantee on ETA.

Think I might kill some time creating some more of the occasional 16x17 maps that don't need to be carefully aligned with neighbouring maps for the hills to make sense!

(As well as the 32x34 'landscape' maps that I  tend to make.)

Things that I have learnt through clicking too fast on 'Move Done' on MegaMek: Double-check the CF of the building before jumping onto it, check artillery arrival times before standing in the neighbouring hex, and don't run across your own minefield.
