Creating similar single player community levels: 9/7/2016 17:15:05

Is there an easy way to create a copy of a single player level you've spent a long time creating if you want to make another level similar to it?

I recently had to remake one from scratch (https://www.warlight.net/SinglePlayer/Level?ID=919298 - kind of tricky) after altering the previous version to play as a different character in the same situation (which unexpectedly deleted the original level), and I want to make another character viewpoint of the same level in a more difficult situation without spending about an hour repeating work I've already done.

In my situation there are 20 named AIs, a bunch of very specific wastelands to ensure the AIs behave as they're supposed to, a bunch of non-standard card settings and 50+ edited bonus values I want to keep for the next instalment, and I know a lot of other people could save a bit of time making their levels too.

If there's not already a way, next time Fizzer updates the game, could we get a 'Copy template' button under 'My Levels' or when you're naming a level have a button to import an existing level as a template?

If you haven't deleted it, you can make a draft, but if you have deleted it - no way.

Well yes, I made a draft, then when I changed the name and tried to publish it just overwrote the original.

Then when I tried to do that again after the most recent updates when I was remaking that level (the first alternate that overwrote the original wasn't as fun, so I figured it could die), I just got an error message when trying to publish after creating a draft.

Just tested publishing a level from a Draft of another live level. The result ("Test for multi-level creation2" - https://www.warlight.net/SinglePlayer/Level?ID=921029) completely overwrote the original in the Community Levels list of published levels, and it's overwritten and deleted the original in My Levels.

Amusingly, version 1 (which was clearly marked as a test, not a legitimate attempt at a level) was only up for about an hour and still got a Like.

Yes, that's the way the system currently works. You can add a draft for a level with which you can replace the previous version of your level.

It's currently not possible to really "copy" a level.

Thanks Muli.

That's kind of annoying though. :(
