hey

I have a question how to download a map from the STEX. this is the one http://www.simtropolis.com/stex/details.cfm?id=5486

I am having trouble because i normally download from ppl who use SC4 Terraformer for the maps. I haven't downloaded a map like this for quite some time. I anly got a greyscale map not a config map which i would normally get,
 
thanks for the help  even though i am not a newbie......

This is a two-step process... On the map's listing, right click on the blue image and select "Save Picture As..." This will allow you to save the config bmp image. Then right click on the "Download" link and select "Save Target As..." This will save the greyscale jpg file. Both images will need to be place in a folder that goes in the Regions folder. From there, you should be able to render it in the game. Note: These commands are for Interent Explorer.

    Not sure what that is. I've never seen anything like that before. I just tried to download the map, and all seemed to go okay...

    Is the config file (It must be named "config") a bmp file and the greyscale a jpg file? That's what it required by the game.
