Basic Mapping

Well first you should download Sim0nes Mapeditor 0.4.490.

Here are some basic things you will need to know in Simones MapEditor 0.4.490

This key on your keyboard zooms out on your map to give a nice overview!
w This key on your keyboard zooms in on your map to easily add details!
Floors Look at the top of the MapEditor (floors?) well you can pick what floor you want to map on! (for ladder holes etc)
Items On the left of your screen is basically everything in Tibia (wow!) Take a minute to look through this!
Spawns and PZ’s Look at the top the green and red icons, red = spawn…green = PZ (obviously!)

Now try yourself to add some depots etc and stuff. Maybe use some mapping pictures to help yourself out a little bit (no stealing maps though ) Also remember to add different grass tiles. Use the grass near the bottom of the ground section. Don’t use cruddy 7.5 grass!
If you are going to start a large map go to file, new, then fill in your details!
To add a ladder/hole put the ladder in then go up 1 floor after learning what the co-ordinates of the ladder is, then add your ladder hole at the same co-ordinates except +1 floor! Vice-Versa (the same reversed) for going down! Simple?

Please Note! Never make your houses too big (unless they have multiple rooms) Make the houses look different and unique, add gardens, upstairs, basements. In your spawns don’t spam creatures everywhere!!! BE CREATIVE!

FOR OPENING SIMONES MAP EDITOR YOU HAVE TO COPY AND PASTE TIBIA.DAT AND TIBIA.SPR FROM YOU TIBIA FOLDER!
Don’t forget to mention that you MUST have the same items.otb in data/items AND in the map editor’s folder or else it will say “Could not deteremine map format existing2”
