Random Warlord Distribution as default?: 1/16/2016 12:47:15

Hi,
after two years i'm making new maps.
I figured some new things out by myself but i don't know if it changed or never was possible:

Can i make "Random Warlord Distribution" as default for a map?

As i can see i can set only selfmade distributions as default, but this makes no sense for me because if i want full-distribution as default i have to make it appear twice (selfmade and automatic generated)

So, am i missing something?

Okay, two weeks later it seems either no one has an answer or no one is interested...

Random Warlords, Random Cities, and Full Distribution are automatically assigned to any created map. Players can choose one of those or any self-made distribution layout when they create a game on that map.

now that I think about it your question is kind of hard to answer since... well...

As i can see i can set only selfmade distributions as default, but this makes no sense for me because if i want full-distribution as default i have to make it appear twice (selfmade and automatic generated)

you seem to already know everything that anyone here knows about the topic

So nope your not missing out on anything at all

Hey Timiniator,

This was indeed changed in the update. However, it doesn't change to
the first in the list, it changes to the distribution that the map
creator defined as the default.

The problem is that, without this, the map creator's default
distribution setting is ignored. Map creators have the option to define
what distribution should be default for their map, and when selecting
their map this should be selected by default. Before this change, there
were some circumstances where a really bad distribution mode would get
selected by default.
