I saw that in legend are defined colors to Nature and Nations, but I don't see where I can import grafick of map with those colors. Can someone tell me how to do it?

And also does DON wiki exist, because all links to it doesn't work?

To import, you need to select a scenario, then go to the "Format" tab & select the [Modify...] button. You can then Browse for the Terrain, Scenery etc. image files.

All the Wiki texts has been moved here:

Where are there places that still link to the Wiki?

The problem is that "Format" tab is just in Template, not in Scenario. Also when you go to template->Fromat->Modify there just 4 optios to inport grafick.
1. Terrain
2. Scenery
3. Climate
4. Exploration.
There isn't option to inport Nature or Nation which is defined in legend. Thats why I'm asking.

Nature is in "Scenery". Nation is not used anymore. Sorry, I guess that legend is old.

Ok thanx for response :kg: . If I may also ask, how does "Exploration" in Format->Modify works? It's in "Common Template, but from what I now, exploration fog should be definied in Scenario for all nations in it, because exploration fog doesn't have to be the same in all scenarios. Also, which color definies exploration? Is it color definied in LEGEND for differente Nations? And if "Exploration" doesn't work, if there is other way to set exploration fog? Regards :D

Nature doesn't work when I open it in "Scenery". It doesn't show any nature. Also how should it work in "Scenery" if scenery contains trees, mountains and hills, when nature has wood, stone and iron? It must to be on another. Also "Exploration" doesn't work. When I import image with black and transparent, it appears in scenario with all map in fog of exploration. Please help. :(

I believe the nature IDs are too high in the latest release, not picking any because there is no matching ID. I should remove that from the legend. However, nature should be fairly easier to place, even easier in the map editor than the image!?

re-Exploration: make sure your image is 2x the dimension of the map size. E.g. if map size is 30x20 tiles, then your exploration images needs to be 60x40 pixels!

Ok. I sent example image of how I understand how exploration image should looks like (It's black and transparent). Although it doesn't work for me. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

Yes, that's how the image has to look! Just add it and it should work. Anyhow, let me double-check also...

Maybe it matters in which order I should add scenario. Should I firstly add scenario or exploration image? Or there are some other options in scenario which I should tur on/off? I never tryed to play test of map with exploration set On because I always checked it in scenario while I was still in modding in "nations" section so I could see how exploration in this scenario looks like and it was always black for all nations.

I think you should add the exploration.png last! If you make changes, the exploration data might get reset!?

Post subject:  Re: LEGEND colors

I checked, adding the explore.png does indeed not work anymore! Sorry for the troubles. :gott:

Anyhow, I added it to the todo-list!
