Contacting the Author: I will no longer be accepting emails. I am not 
	writing this anymore.

=========================================================================

Updates:

Version 1.0: (11-18-2005) Sent guide into gameFAQs. I've completed about
	half the guide. anything beyond the World section is not safe to
	see. but check the conditions and effects area. I need some help
	from you guys on it. I will credit you.

Version 1.1: (12-7-2005) Thanks to Brendan Storer I wrote about the 
	treaty manager and the effect Create Treaty. I've half way
	finished the Terrain part of the guide. Still need to complete 
	anything past Terrain. The Triggers section still needs a lot
	of work, so please send in any information you have on conditions
	or effects.

Version 1.2: (1-12-2006) Ok so I've completed the Terrain section, and 
	I've added three effects (Set lighting, army move, and army move 
	to unit) thanks to a Marius Andersen. Anything past Terrain is
	mainly not completed but any help on conditions and effects would
	be very helpful to this project. Sorry it took me so long to 
	update, and sorry it's so little.

Version 1.3: (7-24-2006) It's been forever but here is what i have done.
	Zander Parrish gave me some useful information about IGC and SPC
	units in the Objects section. I've updated the FAQ's with the 
	correct way to get the computer players to work, and three other
	questions. I did a little with the objects section. Hope that 
	helps a little bit.

=========================================================================

The purpose of this guide is to hopefully help anyone who has had trouble
designing their own senarios because of this confusing system. I've been 
trying to make some senarios and i hate the triggers, so i am going to
study the senario editor and make this guide.

=========================================================================

--------
I. File-
--------
----------------------
A. (New/Load Senario)-
----------------------
If you hit New it will bring up a few options:

Type: This is where you can pick a blank map or one generated, such as 
      Rockies, Amazon, Bayou, things like that. If you make it blank, 
      everything but the size won't matter.

Seed: These are the precreated maps at your disposal. If you type 1 it
      will be diffrent from say 50, maybe not much but somewhat diffrent.

Number of Players: This is where you pick how many players you want to be
      in your senario.

Number of Teams: This is where you pick how many teams you want among the
      above amount of players.

Size: This is where you pick either normal or large and there is an 
      option that allows you to start under debugger. Normal = 200x200.
      Large = 400x400.

Once you have done that you can either return the above to their defaults, 
generate the map, or close the menu.


If you pick Load Senario it will bring up a selection of senarios that
you have created. Obviously if you haven't saved any, this option isn't 
of any use.

------------------
B. (Save/Save As)-
------------------
If you pick save and it's a new senario it will ask you to type a name.
If it isn't a new one save will just... well save it. Save as lets you 
create a name to save as a diffrent file.

---------------
C. Screen Shot-
---------------
Hitting Screenshot lets you take pictures and will give you two options.

Type: This picks which format you want the picture. You can either have
      it as a JPG or a TGA. If it's a JPG you have the ability to pick
      wether is is a low, medium, or high quality picture.

Hide: This allows you to decide wether you want things like the mouse
      pointer and the interface to be in the picture.

-----------------------------------------
D. (Return to Main Menu/Exit to Windows)-
-----------------------------------------
If you hit Return to Main menu it will bring you to the screen where you
can pick single player, multiplayer, options, ect. 

If you hit Exit to Windows it will completely close the program.

-------------------
E. Files at Bottom-
-------------------
At the bottom of the file menu, if you have any files, the last four will
be listed. This allows you to load any of the 4 previous files opened,
so that you can edit them.

=========================================================================

---------
II. Edit-
---------
---------------
A. (Undo/Redo)-
---------------
Undo basically takes the last step and reverses it. You can keep hitting
undo until every object or terrain adjustment you have made is gone.

Redo lets you get back what you just undid.

---------------------
B. Unit (Copy/Paste)-
---------------------
To Copy a unit, click the object and then go into the menu and hit copy.
To Paste it, simply click paste unit and then you can make as many as you
want.

------------------------
C. Terrain (Copy/Paste)-
------------------------
To copy terrain drag a box around what you want and hit Ctrl + C.
When you click paste terrain it gives you some options:

Include: Wether your elavation and textures are in your paste.

Rotation: 0 keeps everything exactly the same, 90, 180, 170 turns it 
          these degrees counter-clockwise.

------------
D. Grouping-
------------
-------------------
1. Define Grouping-
-------------------
Define grouping allows you to take an area and save it as a template. Box
an area and hit ctrl + C it will bring you to a menu:

Transparent Terrain: I can't seem to figure this out how this works. I at
	first thought that perhaps it was the terrain underneath but 
	after testing it so much it appear it doesn't do anything at all.
	If someone knows what it does then please send me an email and I
	will give you credit.

Ignore Placement Rules: If you select this, it will overlap other things.

Select as Single Unit: If you select this, all objects will be surrounded
	if you only click one in the group.

Include Heights/Cliffs: If in your copy box, elevation or cliffs are 
	present then if you select this they will be when you use them.

When you have selected these simply save it as whatever you want.

--------------------------
2. Load Built-in Grouping-
--------------------------
This will select pre-made groupings, created by Ensemble Studios. Such
grouping would be the star fort from the campaign, dead people, and other
things people wanted to make sorta like templates. You can rotate it and
tell it wether you want the elevation and texture to pop up.

---------------------------
3. Load User-made Grouping-
---------------------------
This will allow to take you self created grouping and apply them to your
senarios. You can change it if you don't want the textures or elevation.

=========================================================================

--------------
III. Senario-
--------------
--------------------------------
A. Player Data/Fake Player Data-
--------------------------------
In the player data menu you have serveral options:

Color: You can choose the color of the players.

Civilization: You can choose the Civlization of the players, not only the
	main eight, but the ones from the campaign to.

Name: You choose the name of each player in the game.

Food, Wood, Coin, Exp: Set the amounts of each for that player.

Team: Set the teams of the players.

Control: Its lets you switch them between human and computer control.
	 There is an option for unavailable but i can't see what it does.

Visibility: Can't figure out what this does either.

You can also set the AI and the Homecity of each player. 


I hate it when things don't seem to do anything. Looking at the name of
the menu, you would think that fake player data would allow you to
replace the name of the player and the name of the civilization, instead
it just says something about an "invalid string ID" so if any of you know
what that is, then i would appreciate the help.

----------------
B. Senario Data-
----------------
This just lets you tell how many players you want to have in the senario,
and if ocean water should be initialy seen.

-------------------
C. Senario Summary-
-------------------
This tells you world info, player info, and misc info.

World Info: Map dimensions, average elevation, highest point, lowest 
	point, top 5 dominant terrains, map type, and map seed.

Player Info: Name, Civ, Type (Human/Computer), food, wood, and coin.

Misc Info: Available food, wood, coin, and amount of Gaia Objects.

--------------------
D. Playtest Senario-
--------------------
You can play as any player you want at any difficulty you want.

--------------
E. Objectives-
--------------
In the Objectives editor you can change these things:

Senario Title: pretty obvious what this is.

Overall Senario Goal: Mainly what the whole point of the senario is.

Insert/Delete: These buttons create or delete objectives.

Objective Short Name: This is just a reference for you to find a certain
	objective fast, if you have a lot that is.

Objective Text: Put here the exact goal.

Objective Hint: Any aditional information can be put here.

Initially Visible: This is basically so that if when an objective is 
	unknown and you don't want a line saying unknown ojective ingame
	then don't check this. To reverse this you have to use triggers, 
	which is later discussed in this guide.

Initially Discovered: If you have it as none discovered, once the trigger
	required to discover it appears, it will inform you at the top of
	the screen and with a sound.

Primary Objective: If it's a primary objective it must be completed to 
	finish the senario. If not clicked, it will be secondary, an
	optional objective.

Objective Experience Award: Enter how much exp you want the player to 
	recieve when they have completed the objective.

Objective Occurence Count: This is how many times you want the objective
	to be completed before it is 100% complete.

Per Occurence Experience: This is the amount of exp the player recieves
	each time the objective is complete, this is aside from the total
	completion experience.

--------------------
F. Mercenary Editor-
--------------------
I'm guessing this allows you to tell it what mercenaries are allowed to
be created, but i was under the impression the homecity is what tells you
what it is. I really don't know, any help on this matter will help a lot.

------------------
G. Treaty Manager- (Thank Mr. Brendan Storer for this)
------------------
Alright, once explained to me, this makes sense. Here we go. There are a
few things you need to fill out:

Player 1/2: Here you pick which players you would like to participate in
	the treaty (making neither team able to attack), to do this you
	type 1 for player one, 2 for player 2, ect.

Duration: This is how long you want the treaty to last.

Specified in: You can make the duration either in game years or seconds.

Cost: If you don't use the default cost, then you can choose what you 
	want each player to pay in order to make the treaty. (It could 
	just be the first player to the second player...) The only 
	problem is that you must have it at the begining of the senario, 
	so what's the point. Just use the effect create treaty.

---------------------------
H. Native American Manager-
---------------------------
This doesn't seem to have a use, Because it's the type of map or what you
place manually that dictates the type of native americans. Unless this is
just here to tell you the type on the map, but then it wouldn't let you
click and it wouldn't be a manager.

-------------------------
I. Forbidden Units/Techs-
-------------------------
This just doesn't work, maybe when they update the game they will fix 
this, when i forbid anything. It's still there in the game. Even if i
forbid everything, everything is still there. Oh well...

See "Forbid and Disable Unit" in the effects section, which is in the 
trigger section. (Only works on buildings and units, not techs)

=========================================================================

----------
IV. World-
----------
------------
A. Lighting-
------------
This picks what light should be shown on the map, if you pick cave light
it's just like if it were night. So play around with this and see what 
looks best for the map.

------------
B. Map Size-
------------
This lets you make the map smaller or bigger. You can add length to the 
top, bottom, left, and right. The max (square) dimensions are 1024x1024.
The minimum (square) dimiensions are 64x64.

-----------------
C. Map Elevation-
-----------------
This is for if you can't make a pit or mountain any higher or lower than
you want, you just move everything at the same rate and then you can make
the change without anyone noticing the diffrence.

-------------
D. Map Types-
-------------
I guess this just tells you all of the diffrent types of terrain used.

=========================================================================

-----------
V. Terrain-
-----------
-----------------
A. Paint Terrain-
-----------------
There are a ton of terrain types here that you can paint with. Cliff type
terrains can't be walked on. This can be used to paint land above or 
under water.

--------------
B. Paint Land-
--------------
This allows you to paint land of any terrain type, it will overwrite 
water and change elevation of land. And cliff can't be walked on.

--------------
c. River Tool-
--------------
Here you can make rivers and you have the ability to set the radius, 
breaks, and offset. 

Radius = 2-10
Breaks = 0-18
Offset = 5-50

You can pick from Amazon, Pampas, or Yukon River. When you remove the 
river, it leaves a cool depression.

----------------
D. Shallow Tool-
----------------
Just select any part of a river, and what width you want the shallow to
be and your units can cross the area. The width can be 1-20.

--------------
E. Water Tool-
--------------
Used to make Water on the map, you know lakes and oceans.

-------------------
F. Edit Water Tool-
-------------------
Used to either beautify the water, adding waves and coral underneath the 
water, or to completely get rid of the water. Try beautifying it and then
delete it, it's cool looking with all the coral and stuff.

-----------------------
G. (Canyon/Cliff) Tool-
-----------------------
Makes cliffs, you can tell it what height you want it to be, and if the
height is low enough then it becomes a canyon.

-------------------
H. Edit Cliff Tool-
-------------------
When you make a cliff and you want it to have rocks or even change what
type of terrain the cliff is, click what terrain you want and click 
update.

---------------
I. Forest Tool-
---------------
So you make some trees, you can choose the density, clumpiness, and the
undergrowth (plants around trees). You choose how high you want each then
simply just brush it over some things.

--------------------
J. Edit Forest Tool-
--------------------
Allows you to change the density, clumpiness, and undergrowth on a forest
already made.

------------------
K. Brush Settings-
------------------
Sets shape between square and cirlce.
Sets up the brushing on corners.
Sets up the brushing on cliffs.

=========================================================================

------------
VI. Objects-
------------
----------------
A. Place Object-
----------------
Selecting Place Objects opens up a menu where you first of all choose
what player you want the object to be and then place the object you want.
There are a total of 7 Subcatagories:

All: This is all of the other catagories combined. It's defaulted here.

Units: This is basically all of your player controlled animals, people, 
       and wagons. (Note: The units with IGC before their name don't do
       anything, they are basically just there for cinematics, if you 
       want a controllable character use the SPC ones.)

Buildings: This is obviously all of your buildings and walls.

Nature: This holds all of the huntable animals, birds, indian houses, and
	trees.

Embellishment: This is basically all of your props. (Has AI Start unit)

Test and Current: I see nothing in both, so it's kinda useless.

=========================================================================

--------------
VII. Triggers-
--------------
------------
A. Triggers-
------------
------------
1. Triggers-
------------

X. FAQs-
--------

1. Q. Why won't the computer players do anything when I play my scenario.

   A. Firstly, open Player Data in Scenario. Make sure Control is set to
      Computer, then hit the AI button, select "aiLoaderStandard", there
      are other AI's, but that is the basic one. Then place a Town Center
      or Covered Wagon in the desired location. Then place the AI Start
      unit (Embellishment) for that computer player next to the Town 
      Center or Covered Wagon.


2. Q. How do you set weather?

   A. Read the effects section, under "Render Rain/Snow/fog"


3. Q. Why don't my heros have any attack or able to do anything?

   A. They are the IGC version, for cinematics, not for actual play, use
      the SPC versions for heros.


4. Q. Where is the Scenario folder, I've looked everywhere?

   A. Open up: My Documents > My Games > Age of Empires 3 > Scenario.
