Stronghold 3 pack/unpack

Some cool guy on firefly forums made a pack/unpack util for the .V files which can be found here:


Also the campaign maps can be edited with the mapeditor
normally when you try that it shows map is locked
So do this:
go to Stronghold 3\assets\maps, you will see a lot shmap files
c1xxx.shmap is for the military campaign
c2xxx.shmap is for the economic campaign
c3xxx.shmap is for the blackstaff campaign

open any shmap with winrar or 7zip
inside you will see editor.ed file
open this with notepad.
do a search for MapLocked.
change "true into false".
save file, close winrar or 7zip and it updates the shmap itself.
Open the shmap in mapeditor and you will see now it doesnt say its locked anymore.

NB: As usual save any original file you want to change first.

NB: Hint: when modding look for rules.xml
The bad part. the enemy also makes use of the change then.So try to change a unit that the enemy doesnt use that much, which is campaign map dependent of course.
for example if you mod a archer to do more damage then the enemy archers do the same damage also.
Or mod a unit and place the unit in the shmap , looking first if the enemy doesnt use same unit also.

happy editing and or modding ^^
