Marvie Mapping

To create an Airborne Assault map all you've got to do is open up the mapmapker utility that ships with the game.

Okay okay... it's not THAT easy. But it isn't rocket surgery either.

Below is an animated gif that shows the layers that have to be created to construct a map. Compare this gif with the map image below and you'll see the level of accuracy afforded by the Airborne Assault engine. This accuracy translates into in-game realism.

If you want to learn more about making a map, read this and then get started. If you run into trouble, post here. Lots of people want to help you.

The beauty, anyway, is in the finished product. If the game map matches the real terrain with any amount of accuracy, you've got the potential for facing the same problems that the commanders of the actual battle faced. This is one aspect of Airborne Assault that is unmatched in any other gaming system.

Next we'll look at the demands this kind of detail places on a commander in the Airborne Assault Engine.
