I wanted to try to edit my coast2coast map, but I made it 2 seconds into the tutorial and it already is not working. I have set up the folders and config files as required. The official scs tutorial says exactly this:

Open the game and in the console type edit.

I type edit and it says: run the application again with the command line parameter -edit

And this is supposed to mean what? I go to the bin/x86 folder and add: amtrucks -edit
to the .exe file?

I tried this as per someone's suggestion on one of these forums and nothing changes. I get the same error. The editor wont even open. I am running zero mods and using ATS 1.37. Or is the editor not working with 1.37?

And is this how map editing works? Every step of the way is a steep learning curve for those not familiar with coding/programming etc? If so, I probably do not have the patience for this if it's going to be a long slow go just to get the thing to where I can even start using the editor. Just wondering before I dive into this whole thing. Thanks.

You have to make a shortcut with

Code: Select all

-edit [map_name]
in the target box. And yes, there is quite a steep learning curve once you get into the editor. Maybe spend a few days playing around, then you'll have a better idea of what's involved.

Good Luck!
