Exclamation LEVEL EDITOR FAQ. For builders & players - Latest update 05-01-2011

Frequently Asked Questions about the LevelEditor

Hello all!

This thread contains Frequently Asked Questions about playing and building custom levels.

Please do not reply to this thread.

This thread will keep developing and more questions will be added.
If you have a question you think is a FAQ and should be placed here feel free to contact either Uvavoo or Titak through PM. We will then add them to the thread.

Most questions and answers about levelbuilding only deal with the basics. Links to existing tutorials on the subject will be posted in the answer.
If you know of a usefull tutorial which isn't posted here: please contact Uvavoo or Titak.

We also used to have a pretty long list of stickied threads which have been unstuck because they weren't viewed very often anymore.
You can find this list and the links to the threads HERE : Previously stickied threads.
You can find a Table of Contents below. Scroll through the pages or click on the post of you choice. The post will then open in a seperate window.

Another recommended tutorials place (for more advanced and more complicated things) is our very own Tutorials section.
To make it easier for you to find a specific tutorial, you can check the Tutorials INDEX, which has been stickied in the tutorials section.
