This Primer aims to take you through every aspect in making maps for Homeworld, everything is covered. No need for downloading a ton of texts from a dozen different sites as everything is here. This guide has been authored by Dylov, inspired by the various writings of the Homeworld players community, specifically, long time players who've published and advised prolifically over the years and wanted to share their tips and experiences with other budding map-makers. This primer is a heavily edited version of many others works as well as my own.
This guide is based on the original release of Homeworld by Relic Entertainment
. The material does however equally apply to the Barking Dog follow up Homeworld: Cataclysm. Notes on Cataclysm Should hopefully follow in time, Barking Dog seem to have fixed the annoying problems with the MissionMan editor so future articles may be aimed at that aspect of Map Creation.
