Text files in Map Editor
« on: July 25, 2010, 12:18:37 PM »

What  can you do with the text files?

It doesn't seem like you can do anything with them.

Nope, it used to be the case that one copy-pasted the original text-file for others to try and replicate it, but it was a tedious and time-consuming process, which simply got replaced by folks uploading and downloading files from the map editor.

Do what? Thing is, one could copy the text file and put it in, say, Notepad, but one couldn't paste the file back into the game. Thus, one had to reconstruct the file by hand, whilst using the text file as a blueprint of sorts.

Oh, you reconstruct the map, it doesn't replicate itself because you can't paste it into the game?
