So, I have played this game for awhile and I understand the mechanics well but I have one major problem. I decided a couple years ago to design my own map. I have a wonderful map full of cool features with plenty of resources and i have a story line designed in the 'events' but for some reason after the initial testing of my map ( when the first invasion and or request did launch), none of my events will launch!
I have tried to delete all the events leaving only the most basic event, to see if maybe one of the 40 or so events was causing a problem, still nothing launches. I tried saving my map to the hard drive on my computer, deleted the game completely, reinstalled and added my map back into the game files, still with no luck! What gives? Why do my events launch a few times initially and then shut down permanently afterwards? Please help, I would like the full experience on my map. Thank you.

Make sure you have the triggers set up right, if you download one of my custom maps, and load it in the editor, you can see it done successfully (or take a look at any custom map you know has events). You can also email the map to me (maydayp@hotmail.com) or if someone else offers, you could email them too. And we can look at the map on our own computers.

Make sure you check out the mission editor guide file. It's really helpful. I had to constantly refer to it when I was first building my own maps. (this is included in the GOG version too)

Hey, thank you for the quick response! I'm pretty sure I have the appropriate triggers, as I could get a test event to launch, then when I built out a larger set of events, none of them triggered. I had several easy events like plagues, simple 'one time event' Bedouin invasions and perfect inundations that also didn't launch. I then deleted everything and started again with a simple one time Bedouin invasion, it didn't launch, then I tried a simple inundation and it didn't launch, so I think something else is going on. I've covered the mission editor pretty thoroughly I think and I did look at the custom missions and how they were set up, the only thing I couldn't duplicate is that they have -1 as a route number occasionally. So, I currently have no events in my current map but I would be very happy to enter my events again and have you take a look in case I'm missing something simple and see what might be happening with my map, again i really appreciate any help! When I get a chance I'll send you my map with the events put back into it and see if I made a mistake somewhere or our maybe my computer is an issue. I have a few other glitches with the game occasionally, but they seem minor.

So, I didn't try your map out, I just looked at the events in the mission editor. Some how you have all your events taking place 1999 years into the game. *that* is why they aren't launching.
This may have happened if you thought you were setting the year they should occur in, rather then how many years from the beginning or last triggered occurrence they should occur.

Haha, I will change that and get back to you, really makes me wonder how I got a few events to launch early on and then nothing? Anyway, I'm sure that's it. Thank you so much!
