Ok so I'm trying to take terrain from 1 map, and paste it completely over another map. I tried using scmsplicer, but it doesn't write over the doodads. Then I just tried copying and pasting the whole damn thing, but the same thing happened. All the doodas are flattened to terrain and it still doesn't work. All I want to do is paste Temple Siege v1 terrain over Temple Siege v1.2! (And then call it temple siege v1.1)

You have to copy TILE (if you want it to work in editor) and MTXM (though an editor should rewrite this.) THG2 (sprites) and DD2 (doodads) should be cleared.
What editor are you using?

The terrain actually wasn't flattened like I thought it was... I'm ok now.

Uber@tion 2 can copy whole layers, I think it distinguishes between doodad and terrain layer.

This program is pretty useful for copying layers over.

That really needs to happen. Temple Siege v1.2 has imbalanced terrain, where as temple siege v1.0 has functional terrain, but somewhat ugly. Swap the terrain, then try to remove blockiness. Maybe you should call it temple siege v1.3, rather than 1.1?

I saw someone host a version 1.3 I don't know if you made it or someone stole your map.



None.

It's stolen. If you read the mission briefings it's still v1.2

And it's not my map, it's unholyunrine's.

Just use SCMDraft2. Copy the terrain, then copy the Doodads. BTW, SCMDraft2 also attempts to repair Doodads from the Terrain layers.

What about the "Cut\Copy\Paste Brush" feature in ScmDraft2? I used it once before. You select the terrain while in this feature then right click and select "Copy"/"Ctrl + C". Next, simply either right click and select "Paste" or "Ctrl + V" to paste the terrain to the current brush for placement anywhere. This works great for copying terrain, units, doodads, and anything else. You can even copy multiple layers at once. EX: Units/Terrain/Doodads all at once.
