Ok i've tried to edit nirvana 2 map. First i made it an only 6 player map, then I added some moons and that all worked out OK. But then I wanted to add some crewless ships and stations and they just didnt show on the map, like they weren't there. I tried everithing I could think off, first I made them team 0 and they did show on the map but I couldn't do anything with them, then I made them a team that could be played in that map(in my case team 7) and they didn't show on the map, and I also tried to make them the same team than me and they still didn't show on the map. I am sorry but I am running out of ideas so I would be very gratious if someone can help. Thanks

mh, it should work if you put them into a team which is not used. make sure you set this team to empty (press ctrl+r to bring up the pereferences dialog with the team settings).

1) when you have placed all of the starting locations make sure you close all other players (ctrl + r & do it in that menu) then it should show up, i'm not sure why there is no bmp though try saving again.
2)when you make it larger save it and then load it again the map will now be of the correct specs.
