This is my first threat in here so my name is Tim for those out there that don't know me.
Also for those out there that love details then the document below is something you will want to have.
3 months ago I finally got my hands on the second addition of Creeper World and I was totally blown away by how much more advanced the game had become. Virgil, the game's creator, really went all out on this game. During the month of November I started looking at creating my own maps. Looking at the CW 2 Editor I realized there was a ton more features. It was at that moment I realized I was going to need help on understanding many of the new features. Well, this time around Virgil didn't include any help file for the editor so I hit this forum and found a thread done by Ebon Heart called, "Making CW 2 Maps for Dummies". This is a very awesome thread that helps give a person a good look at many of the features found within the CW 2 Editor.
But I am someone that loves details. I am a person that will take something apart right down to the very last screw just to see how it works. So as I read Ebon's thread I noticed that some of the features of the editor were not covered. So I started doing up a manual for myself that would cover every single detail right down the those little features that some may not even think would be relevant. I did use inspiration from Ebon's thread to help get me started. Near the end of January I finally came close to finishing my personal manual. With everything that I covered I wanted to make sure that what I explained to myself was correct in what that feature actually did. So I got in contact with Virgil and asked if he would look over my work. Well, he said he would be honored. So I emailed a copy of my work to Virgil and after he looked it over he said he was actually very impressed by the detail of my work. Of course I did make a few mistakes on explaining some things. But with guidance from Virgil I made the changes needed to make my manual complete and correct.
I also asked Virgil what his thoughts would be about me sharing my manual with every other Creeper world fan out there. Believe it or not I never once had any intentions to ever share this manual with no one other then me. He felt I should indeed look at sharing my work with all the other fans. So before I share my work with the world I just would like to give some special thanks to Virgil, Ebon Heart, and J.
Ebon gave me something to start with while J, wrote an awesome thread called, "Advanced field/gravity guide". That thread helped explain how fields are created. I liked J's thread so much I included a link to the thread in my manual. It's well worth looking at.
So below is a zip file that contains a PDF file of the manual. I am supplying the manual this way so that fans don't have to be online in order to view this manual. So enjoy and lets all have fun creating awesome maps that we all can play for years to come. Thanks everyone and God bless.
PS: feel free to leave any comments and or suggestions. Both good and bad are welcome. I am prepared for the worst but hoping for the best.
