Note: This is for map.ini!

I am going to show you guys how to make Units spawn faster from buildings and how to make the actual buildings them selves, build faster...

Ok, in your map.ini you just need these 2 pieces of code:

Code for Units to spawn faster:


Object (Name of unit)Horde
BuildCost = (How much you want to purchase it for)
BuildTime = (How long it takes to spawn 1-infinate never 0)

Code for buildings to build faster:


Object (Name of Building)
BuildCost = (How much you want to purchase it for)
BuildTime = (How long it takes to spawn 1-infinate never 0)
Scale = 1 (only for buildings)

And thats it... As you see its very simple...

Here is the final product for some gondor rangers and a gondor archery range:


Object GondorRangerHorde
BuildCost = 500
BuildTime = 1


Object GondorArcherRange
BuildCost = 250
BuildTime = 1
Scale = 1

The Scale on buildings can change! Scale = 1 means the regular size of the building and if you do it Scale = .5 then it will be half the regular size. Same for becoming larger!

Oh, and for the comments before I edited it and it was really crappy writing because I made this tutorial when I was new to coding and map.ini editing...

Not only is this article useful for people who have only been modding for maybe a week tops, it isn't even written well. A real beginner would have no bloody clue what you're talking about.

Apart from my belief this topic does not need a tutorial on its own, but could also be covered as one part of a beginners tutorial with more content, especially since the thing is pretty self-explanatory, you made the only mistake, which is possible to make: Scale

Scale has nothing to do with structures, nor with build time, but with 3D models. When making a model, it has a certain size in the modelling programm, and when Scale = 1 it has the same size ingame. Scale = 2 would mean the model ingame is twice as large as in the modelling programm..Scale = 0.5 is self-explanatory after knowing the rest, right..?

Just my 2 cents..
