Africa Map Mod

Postby ItsNotOgreYet » Thu Jun 30, 2016 8:18 pm

Even though it looks like the modding community has been dead for a while, I've always wanted to learn how to mod one of my favourite games. Now that I've figured out how to do it, I jumped quickly to make my first mod. In this case, I created a simple map mod which replaces the Earth's continents with a single African super-continent. The map is separated into six playable geographical locations:

North/Islamic Africa
West Africa
Central Africa
Southwest Africa
East Africa
South Africa + Madagascar

I've added about 10 - 15 cities per location, for the sole reason that it was difficult to find more cities with >300,000 population. Cities are not placed exactly, nor have realistic population count (i.e., 74 million in Kinshasa with a faction population of 200 million). This is my first mod, and it was an overall enjoyable experience modding, besides making the travel nodes work.

Wow, nice, glad to know stuff like this is still alive.

Can you teach me how to do this?

I want to create something similar.

It seems to me that we have all grown up enough to see South Africa not in the game but in reality))) Judging by the silence in this thread, most guys did just that. I'm not surprised. Programmers are now in demand everywhere.
