Hello,

My map is getting about 20 mb now, does somebody know what is the maximum map size?
I don't want to finish my map in 2 months and see that it isn't working because of the map size :)

20 mb of terrain? o.o
Are you sure about that?
That's would be pretty much every inch of a max sized map covered with doodads?

haha not that all but I got kinda solution:

about 40% of the map was unused so I deleted it
I created the map over with 164x164 but I still got about 10mb to terrain now
Yes I placed a lot of doodads but it's not nearly the whole map, I guess it's about 10% map

Well for some reason it has changed to 5mb and ONLY 6kb when compressed

that is a HUGE diffirence, how can I get it compressed?

When your map is saved, the terrain will be automatically compressed down to 6kB and saved into your file. When you load a game, the Terrain data is uncompressed to 5MB.

6kB is very small. That is equivalent to a medium sized map with absolutely nothing placed. Did you have a blank map open when you looked at those sizes?

And the maximum upload size is still 105 MB, not 120 MB.

Also, open the overview manager(F12) and press Triggers in the components list. Take a screenshot and post it here.

Here's Cruiser Command's overview as an example:

    Something tells me we might be able to customize the chatbox a bit, considering that there's a gap under every message.

    Hm, it is now harder to type anything on an Android phone. Pressing Backspace or Enter keys will dismiss the Android keyboard for some reasons.

    Just noticed there's a delay of at least 2 minutes before each post. Guess I can't post Headline News quickly as I used to.
