I've yet to turn out anything good, and I also can't figure out how to edit the gat tiles. /sob

Excuse me sir, Go into Edit Mode > GAT Tiles, it will show a bunch of colourful FABULOUS~ tiles, you can switch between them by using '[' and ']', the top tile is the one that you'll be using. If you want to change it height use Page Up and Page Down (Making stuff like getting up on a house). Make sure you don't get under the yellow 'walk able' tile or else you'll crash.

If you're using a not American keyboard, you can go into Window > Preference and change the Button Menu UP and Button Menu DOWN to anything you want. Hope I helped, enjoy mapping and then punching your screen with hate due to potential bugs that happen just when you're going to save.

P.S: Always quicksave when you finish ANYTHING.

P.S.S: I've just accessed Nydhoggur dungeon by it, you guys should try it.

P.S.S.S: Woah, I've found a Giant Whale Model, and some GWhale Houses, maybe it is a new map Gravity is planning?  :P


It's been public available for about 2 weeks now >_>


Did you already added Lightmaps? If so you should go Generate> Calculate Lightmaps, if nothing happens or the lightmaps don't make light, you should check their properties by clicking enter, either the range or the intensity is too low. The Colour is R/G/B, and the minimum is 0 and maximum is 1.
Also, if you don't get any of what I said, most of the questions you have can be easily solved by this guide: here.

If the guide didn't solved either, you can post a screenie of the problem :B?


Woah Nice! Nice work on the lightmaps, I have no freaking patience with those light bulbs crashing me.
And you already added and even script it  :o God you're fast >_<

I'm planning on releasing a map myself, but GAT-ing take Soooooooooo much time. :(


Sh*t, it keeps crashing on me :<

Don't click out of the map, do not click out of the texture, do not go under the yellow walking of gat editing, do not use sounds features, do not use effect features, do not use New map feature, aways edit a old map.

But uh, those are the most common crashing issues.
QuoteIt's still not perfect, but meh. At least my players like the new map, and they demanded I make it the new server capital, so.. yep. Spent the past hour duplicating NPC's into the new town. =)

Coolio, I hope my map make them want it as the new main town ;-; , and uh, do you know how do I add maps? :V


omg finally, though i have no use for this my bro's been wanting it for ages :D


All I did was try to make a new map, that worked, then I tried adding a cave thingie.
Instant crash.

New map will ALWAYS crash, leave that feature away if you don't want to crash, use Open from GRF and edit a map, go tools, clean map, then save as a template and use it as the "new map" feature.


Let me know if you have any questions. It's a little tricky at first, but once you get the hang of it, it's super easy. Rebuilding a mapcache from scratch is the truly tricky part. @_@;

ThankyouuU! I'll try it later, at the moment I'm way too busy finishing some other projects to try doing that '-'; *saves the little guide*

Odd, the version I'm using doesn't have a tools option.. *checks to see if there was a new release of the public version* I downloaded what Borf released intitially to the public @_@;

V. 563 has it.


I'm in 'Ren's room at the moment, he has version 564. Is it specific to 563?

Might have had a update, I'll check.


Hey there.  This may sound like a silly question, but does anyone know how to place models onto the maps from different towns and places? (Buildings, statues, etc.)  I can't seem to figure it out at all.

Thank you <3~
