Sea provinces (sea zones)
« on: October 18, 2018, 02:52:48 PM »
It would be awesome if the ocean could be divided into sea zones. Sort of like in Paradox games where you have your fleets sitting in these zones, patrolling them, sailing from one to the next, etc. Just a thought!

Cheers.

Well, you can use the territory importer to generate provinces that can be also located overseas... but you need to draw the color map in some graphic tool..

Please tell me how to export the current map of countries (I do not need provinces)? I want to draw on it the regions of the ocean and import through the territory importer.
I suspect that the "Export Provinces Color Map" option is responsible for export, but it throws an error:
Code
NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object
WorldMapStrategyKit.WMSKEditorInspector.ExportProvincesMap (System.String outputFile) (at Assets / WorldMapStrategyKit / Editor / WMSKEditorInspectorIO.cs: 167)
WorldMapStrategyKit.WMSKEditorInspector.ExportProvincesMap (UnityEditor.MenuCommand command) (at Assets / WorldMapStrategyKit / Editor / WMSKEditorInspector.cs: 1389)

Thanks! Can I export only a map of countries (without provinces)?

And what beta version do I need to download? I have 8.4.1 release now

World Map Strategy Kit 2 v.9.2 is the latest beta.
I see you only have access to WMSK 1 which is the old package.
Did you send me a pm with your invoice number?

I found the cause of the error: provinces10.txt file was missing (I deleted it as advised by the manual).
But I do not need provinces (it is very difficult to paint all this), how can I unload only countries and paint only them?

Hi,

Using the Territory Importer you can automatically generate countries as well. This video is for provinces but the same tool can import only countries from a texture:

If you want to export current countries as a color texture so you can modify it externally and then import it, this option is not available yet (WMSK 2 can only export Provinces color map).
I'd add this feature in next WMSK 2 update.

Regards
