Introduction The goal of this tutorial is to enable you to be able to create Custom Games from World Builder maps and/or map scripts such that they can be played from the Custom Game menu. The tutorial starts by showing you how to create (and play) a World Builder Map Scenario, with simple to follow, step-by-step instructions. The tutorial then proceeds to show you how to convert the scenario into a mod, such that it can be shared with other players by means of the ModHub. Instructions on how to play the scenario as a mod are also given. The tutorial then shows you how to convert the scenario mod into a custom game mod (using pre-built components) and instructions on how to start the custom game are also given. Finally, the tutorial shows you how to use the pre-built components to enable and/or disable key features of configuring a custom game – civilization, map and difficulty selection. By the end of the tutorial you will have a fully working, configurable, custom game based on both a World Builder created map and a standard map script.
