What Remains to be Done

We have completed the landscape and placed all goods, now for the final steps:

Set the Starting Points

We have to determine how many tribes may play on this map and set their starting points.

Add more players by clicking at the arrow up. Rename them if you wish, choose which kind of tribe they shall be on default or if the map is played as a scenario (Barbarians, Atlanteans, Empire) and ultimately, click onto the sign with the player's colour to place the Starting Point. Starting Points may only be placed on green spots (large buildings) and in a minimum distance to each other. See also the help section for this option .

Map Options

In the Editor's Main Menu there is a button labelled 'Map Options', leading to a likewise named menu.

After you're done with this, lean back... you've completed both your map and this tutorial! Enjoy playing and creating!
