Luis Guzman's PG2 Scenario Editor

December 14-17, 2001

v.1.0

THANK YOU:

... to Luis for having created such a great tool! Luis is extremely enthusiastic about user feedback. If you have any ideas, then please send them to him. He can be contacted at Luis Guzman.

NOTES:

This is just a brief write up of some of the features of Luis' tool! The bottom line: It is absolutely fantastic and does just about everything that you would ever want when it comes to editing scenarios.

Scenario Form : Note the easy navigation and combo boxes for data entry, etc.

SUMMARY

Luis' editor is really amazing. I can't believe how much functionality Luis has built into it! I really am grateful for how everything is menu driven or combo box driven, and the ability to modify things such as place names from directly within the editor! Same thing with being able to modify the map, unit statistics, and even the equipment file (which I have already done)! The equipment report is also very impressive. It installs easily and anywhere. You can download it from the download section of this site.

Using Luis' editor, I have recently redone an entire campaign very easily (well, not VERY easily because it has taken a lot of hours), but his editor has saved me perhaps over a hundred hours.

Map Form : Easy interface and lots of helpful information.  Look at the check boxes at the bottom to hide information you don't want to see when you don't want to see it.

For example, the terrain and unit naming part was incredibly easy and fast. There is an import feature by which you can import names from an existing map. Let's say you want to use the Lillihammer.map file, and someone else has already used it and named everything (including things that SSI never named, such as the forests, lakes, mountains, roads, minor rivers, swamps, parks, etc.). You can import the names from that person's scenario into yours and have them automatically assigned to your map. I did that for several of my own scenarios. I had about four scenarios using the same map. Instead of setting up the terrain names for each of the scenarios, which would have been very time consuming and would have led to errors, I did it for one scenario. Then I clicked export (terrain names), opened each of the other scenarios (which already had some place names and unit names assigned, I might add), clicked import, and it did everything automatically without messing up the existing unit names.

Unit Form : Easy interface and lots of helpful information.  Easily name units, create or clone new ones, change individual settings, and much more.
