Custom Scenario distribution?: 11/28/2016 14:19:41

I want to create a game with 13 players but i want to change the distribution. I dont want to use the Warlord distribution or any other, because i don't want people to start directly beside each other, so that everybody has the same fair start.
How do i set it up, that i select 13 terr in the map and then the 13 people should get one of those selected terr randomly.
Is it even possible at all?
I tried to pick 13 terr and put them all into Slot:A, but guess what, it didn't work^^ would have been too easy. I have to create at least 2 Slots. The important part for me is that everybody will get a random selected terr.

I'm not sure if that's possible. What you can try is set it to manual distribution and define only one slot. That way everyone can pick out of those 13 territories that you set as slot A.

First off, the whole idea of warlords distribution is to distribute the territories so that people don't start next to each other. Open up the Earth map and click "View" next to Warlords and you'll see what I mean: https://www.warlight.net/SinglePlayer?PreviewMap=12

Of course, some map makers don't honor this or don't even create a Warlords distribution. But that was the idea.

You may be thinking of random warlords which is random, and therefore could have adjacent starts.

This is something that only the map maker can do. They have to define it as a distribution.

There are a few things you can do to:

1. Look at the distributions defined in the map and see if any come close to the spots you want players to start with.
2. Contact the map creator and ask them to add a distribution for the territories you want.
3. Use a custom scenario + manual distribution. If you set it to manual distribution, then you can simply set them all to Slot A and players will get those territories to pick from.

Exactly that's the problem most of the maps have no Warlord distribution, like i am looking for, u can only select the random Warlords. They have all different kinds of distribution types, for Team-games etc but not for non team multi-player games with +10 Player.
As example: https://www.warlight.net/SinglePlayer?PreviewMap=40640

Awesome map, maybe if i ask Ranek nicely he he may give me the svg-file xD

Naah i will ask him for a distribution or i will end up doing it with the manual distribution.

But thanks for your replys!
