OPENING WORLDBUILDER

Close all unnecessary programs, load up the Task Manager (CTRL+ALT+DELETE) so you can deal with the memory.

Open Worldbuilder, press Accept and wait for it to load. It can take a while so don’t worry if it takes a few minutes.

And this is what Worldbuilder look like:

Hover your mouse over each button on the toolbar to see what it opens. Then look at the most important menus; View and Edit (see below).

Note: below menu's are from BFME I's WB, BFME II's has more features.

Try to replicate this View menu, as enabling things like Shadows, Soft-Water, Macro-texture, Skybox etc may slow down the computer and are unnecessary.

It's a castle for BFME 1. The smaller one is a camp, the even smaller one is an outpost/expansion.

The direction refers to where the gate is.

the large black circles with the directions - what do they do? How about the smaller black circles with the red font and the 3 meshed black circles?

@militaryman: That's part of WB. It only shows some tiles in an effort to cut down on the resource usage. If you want to enable the full map even when showing many tiles, go to View -> Show All of 3D Map (Or press Ctrl+A).

Ok. i have a problem with world builder. when i go to zoom out i cannot see the terrain in some parts. an example of this is on page 4 of this article(where it tells you this "When everything's added (screenshot doesn't include creeps for some reason):" the picture bellow this is my problem
