This update brings the ability to create, edit and share custom maps. This is the first update in the series of updates aimed to give the community flexible tools for map and game mode creation.
The toolset which provides map making facilities is called the Map Composer. To access it, click the Map Composer button in the main menu.
To create a new map click the New Map... button - this action will immediately launch the map editor. You are also be able to manage and share your maps from this menu.
The map editor itself gives you the ability to customize every aspect of the map. As mentioned before, more tools will be added to the map editor to enable further customization, as well as ease the process of map making.
Currently there's not much in the way of documentation available for the editor, nor the scripting language. This will be rectified in the upcoming days - help, tutorials, and references are coming, so stay tuned!
The update also brings slight improvements and changes to the interface, as well as various bug fixes. Among more notable changes - the removal of the Skirmish button; it has been replaced with the Custom Game button. No functionality has been lost - this is just a menu change to better fit the new features.
Your feedback regarding the map editing tools or any other topic is, as always, appreciated.
