Learn how to make maps: Outpost 2 Mapmaking

Single Player Map Categories

A wide range of single player maps are available:

  • Tutorial - Maps with associated instructions for learning the game's basic mechanics. Also includes 2 sandbox levels, one for each colony.
  • Campaign - Series of maps that must be completed sequentially. Typically each map is more difficult than the last. Technology between maps is usually retained and does not have to be researched again. The original campaigns have associated mission briefings and novella chapters to develop a rich plot alongside gameplay.
  • Colony Game - Standalone single player map. Typically, they start from a small, undeveloped colony or expedition and require the player to play through the end of a lengthy objective such as launching a starship or obtaining a substantial population.

Multiplayer Map Categories

The following are the basic types of multiplayer maps:

  • Last One Standing (LoS) - Players start with a small pre-built base and fight to the last man. This can also be played with teams (alliances).
  • Land Rush - Similar to Last One Standing except players start with an expedition of vehicles and pick a location to found their colony.
  • Space Race - Players compete to be the first one to complete a colony ship.
  • Midas - The players compete to collect the most minerals in a set amount of time. Rare metals count for more points than common metals.
  • Resource Race - Players compete to obtain a fixed goal of both common and rare metals. First to the goal wins.
  • Survival (SRV or SURV) - Players cooperatively play against external factors to launch a starship. Typically the blight and an AI opponent pressure the players. Each player cannot contribute to another player's starship, so usually one player will focus on starship construction while the others fight the AI opponent.
  • Peacekeeper AI - Some maps include a computer player strategically placed between opponents. In order for the opponents to engage each other, they must first destroy or move through the hostile AI territory. This naturally allows players extra time to build up their colonies before an engagement. Typically the AI will not directly attack the other players, but will defend itself when engaged.

Components of a Map

Each map requires a .MAP file and a DLL file to play. The map file lays out the basic terrain and the DLL contains the scenario information. Each map file can support multiple different scenarios with each scenario having its own dll. Maps can also contain a separate tech tree file to customize the technology.

Map Size

Map sizes are listed as size in tiles with horizontal first and vertical second. Some maps feature wraparound from Eastern to Western side and vice-versa. No map will allow wraparound from North to South. The largest map size is 512 x 256 tiles.
