Scenario Creator Help - NdemicTom - 08-09-2014 05:54 PM

We have just launched the first version of the Scenario Creator! This post gives a few tips on how to use it. We will keep adding more tips as it evolves, so let us know if you have any questions!
  1. For your first attempts at creating a scenario, it is recommended that you use EITHER the World Lab or the Disease Lab, not both. All official scenarios use one or the other.
  2. For many of the variables, the tooltips will give a guide to what we regard as a high figure or a low figure. For example, if it says [5 <-> 10], then we regard 5 as a low figure and 10 as a high figure. It is fine to use figures outside of this range (we do sometimes, albeit rarely) but you may get some odd results!
  3. When you save a scenario, you can play/test it immediately through the Custom Scenarios menu in the main game. You will find it in the “Local Files” tab. Do not worry, it will not be accessible to anyone else until you have ‘Published’ a scenario to Steam Workshop.
  4. You can publish a scenario to Steam Workshop in the ‘Publisher’ screen (found in the File menu of the Scenario Creator). Here, it is also possible to unpublish, publish only to friends or hide a scenario that you have published.
  5. In general, don’t try and change everything you can! You can get some really interesting results by just tweaking a few variables. It is also better to tweak and test variables in small batches, so that you can see the effect of each of your changes on gameplay. If you change everything and are getting some really odd results, it can be difficult to work out what the actual reason is!
Let us know if there are any other tips that you think we should add Tongue. Good luck!


P.S. A few people have been asking where the local files are so they can edit them directly. If you want to do this, be very careful, as you can easily mess stuff up and it will cause crashes that you can't correct in the SC. I recommend backing up the original versions in case.

However, if you really want to do this, you can find them here:

What is needs is, You know when you create added infectivity to an Sympton with the 0-10, we need like the ingame bar that acctually shows you how much is added. I have to keep switching because i cant see how much of an impact there is. Please addddddd.
