Hi everyone!

Today we are announcing something that some of you, quite rightly, thought will never ever be released.
It is the Alpha Version of atWar Map Editor!
Available here: https://atwar-game-test.com

Yep, that's right, better late than never, as the saying goes .
This is just the initial public release and over the coming weeks/months we aim to polish it and make it in every possible way better than the current Silverlight Editor. And to achieve this, we are asking for your help. Please go ahead and give it a good test, see if there is anything that is not working, buggy, or just plain wrong and log your findings in the new atWar testing forum. There is also a forum for general testing discussion, where you can leave your feedback and discuss the new editor.

I must stress that none of this would've been possible without the massive help from our brilliant new developer - Clovis. So, everybody, please give him a big round of applause! Thank you, Clovis!

Right, now off you go, give it a good spin, let us know what you think and log any issues you find (remember about the new forums).
All new accounts get premium by default on the test server, so you can access all the game features, including the Map Editor.

Cheers!

My question is this. what if u have a map that u like to play but would like to make some changes to it. can u just take the basic map and then make the changes that u want? example: the avetesia map. maybe taking out subs, or adding aircraft. or even just changing all the units all together. is that what the map editor is about or not. i have never made a map.

Maps belong to the person who creates them, you must contact the creator and seek permission. We take our rights to our maps very seriously. Your suggestion leads to plagiarism.

Map editor is a premium payed feature, and nobody accused you of plagiarism, only that your idea could lead to plagiarism.

its not plagiarism when the map creator doesnt own it in the first place. everything in this game is intellectual property of atwar

Incorrect, this was a hotly debated topic in the past, and even though it is property of atwar, ivan has given us entire autonomy over our maps, as we offer a service to the community for free, which bring more players. So no we can't sue anyone but yes we can decide whether or not you can copy our maps. We can delete every single map you guys play no matter if it has thousands of plays, as long as we are the creator we are in control of what happens to the maps.

Does the alpha map editor not allow saving? When I try to save it, it says 'Unknown error'. I also cannot save changes to my map on the regular map editor on the website here, it says it is "Saving map data" until I close the window.

so the map in question, is a clone of another map. i dont know what clone of a map is exactly but perhaps taking a map and making some changes to it. and the person that cloned that map has not been on for 280 days. maybe its an abandoned map. maybe he can be sent a fedex package asking for permission to take it and play with it since he doesnt want to. and probably copied it from somewhere else anyway. and how many apology letters should be sent to the governments of the world for using the boundries of their countries to make maps with. since we are worried about the rights to maps so seriously. so, hellykin, how many games have you played that have maps that are property of governments or video game companies, geez, this is probably why there are so few players that stay with the game. high rank fuckers get their shit all offended.

Just do whatever you want lol, no map creator will be bothered to delete a map made on the test server. Keep in mind that any test server maps can't be transferred, so you can basically just make whatever you want on it

Your barking up the wrong tree, if the map is copy able by default, then you can copy it, if the map is not copy able by default you must ask permission. If you don't like the way things are then pm an admin your concern, I simply told you how things are and you somehow took offence.

Maps are not copy able by default, the creator has to make it that way, thus giving permission. What this guy is suggesting is taking everyones work and making it copy able always. Which is rediculous.

He probably just means taking the same map image from google that the mapmaker used, and making his own map from it that is similar to the mapmaker's map. I do agree that mapmakers should keep some semblence of control over their maps; but Knights of Geton probably just means making a map that is similar to another map. In any case, even if he were to fully copy a map, the map would be stuck on the test server and the admins wouldn't allow it to be moved, so no harm done to any party. Come on, don't be mean to rank 5s, they don't know any better XD

Please go and actually read what he said before making assumptions.

Will this solve the issue of SL maps being turned into HTML code, and bugging it out in the forever loading screen in SL and error loading paths in HTML? if not, the damage is done already, but this is great to hear that a editor will be coming now.

Aww why'd you disable the Silverlight one? Can't make a map for the live servers at all now.

Can you at least add an import/export function so I won't have to completely re-create the map again when you push it live?

Once people can actually save you will have many more people willing to try it out. As of now, it's a hastle to even make maps and even more of a pain to make a map that won't even save.
