[Tutorial]How To Name Maps

The issue: People naming the maps in their custom stories something extremely generic which another person may have named their own maps which can make transitioning from level to level unexpectedly bad if two custom stories are installed with similar map names.

Spoiler below!

FINALLY someone says something about this! Haha I've had so much trouble with map name overlap while playing custom stories, so I hope a lot of people see this Smile

RE: [Tutorial]How To Name Maps

The only way i could see a conflict between two custom stories happening due to such generic map names is with non-fully isolated full conversions. Otherwise, i doubt a conflict would occur (unless one of the stories were installed incorrectly).

RE: [Tutorial]How To Name Maps

The most simple article, but for anyone who downloads a tn of stories (not me... I delete most after I'm done playing. I need my hard drive as empty as possible or I feel urked...), this is truely a thread to read.

Also... The presentation was professional and beautiful.

This is indeed a good practice to get into. Helps me when I'm trying to figure out which map to open also. Nice touch with the ragefaces too.
