    I would just create the map using the ingame Worldbuilder. It is easy to use and makes decent maps. If you start a custom game of FfH with the desired leaders for the map, you will be able to edit everything in Worldbuilder to get the map you want.

    If you are using a different program to create a custom map, then I don't know how to help you. I only have experience with Worldbuilder and I have made a couple of simple scenarios with it.

    I had a problem getting my maps to work in FfH2. It turned out that regular BTS maps have 18 teams and players (just blank entries from 0 to 17) but FfH2 needs 35. Copy this into the map file in the right place:

    You might also want these:
    Code:
    	Randomize Lairs=true
    	Randomize Unique Improvements=true
    	Randomize Goody Huts=true
    EndMap
    and from what I've seen these additional teams and options won't keep the map from being used in vanilla BTS.
