BFME2H is looking for a new staff member who knows the World Builder and would be prepared to answer questions for other people (in this forum). We will be looking at any maps you might have made as well as posting style in the forums, so hopefully anyone interested in this position will have experience with both. If you have any questions, have someone to recommend, or are interested in applying yourself, please email me at: kester@heavengames.com. Thanks

I'm pretty good at Worldbuilder, and I would be good at this except for the teensy little fact that I hate Worldbuilder itself. I good luck to the others.

I changed my mind. I'll join. I know the program and I'm good at explaining things to other people.

I've got some competition though...

I'm glad to see some interest.

Don't forget to email me if you want to apply. Posting style is very important, so if you haven't posted much here yet but can direct me elsewhere where I can get an idea of your approach to helping others, that would be helpful.

Can we nominate canidates? (they can choose whether or not they want the job)

I don't think I'll run since:
1) If Spore or CNC3 become a heaven, I'll probably want to be there
2) I know the functions of all the world builder tools and how to use them, but I just don't know all the script commands for all the events, and since it said SCENARIO designer and not map designer, well, you get the picture.


static void Main()
{
Console.WriteLine("I love C#, Wolves, Komodos, and Supreme Commander." ) ;
Console.WriteLine("Press any key to end program." ) ;
Console.ReadLine() ;
}

I'd be interested...if the editor were actually a 'scenario' editor, and not a map editor. Plus BFME2 didn't hold my interest that long at all. I don't even like the game that much. =/

Whoa.

Well, not liking the game is a good reason not to apply

I've changed the thread title to Mapmaker/Scenario Designer. We basically need someone who knows their way around the editor, in all its facets.

So would a better-designed map work better than a well scripted one? Vice versa? How important are each of the characteristics? Or is the format of answering questions more important than the map?

We can look at maps you've already made, so don't worry about making an all-new one - unless you want to show off abilities (scripting maybe) not already present in your other maps.

That's very important. Knowledge of the editor is a prerequisite to the position, but the person also has to be able to post in a friendly, professional manner.

Not exactly that, but more that I usually don't have the attention span to make a professional map, much less the time.

I have a nice list of Worldbuilder bugs and flaws and common mistakes. I should make it into a test for the applicants...

static void Main()
{
Console.WriteLine("I love C#, Wolves, Komodos, and Supreme Commander." ) ;
Console.WriteLine("Press any key to end program." ) ;
Console.ReadLine() ;
}

If it was allowed, I would ask how to modify Worldbuilder so that all of those bugs could be fixed.

I can't ask that, since it violates the license agreement. (I think)

I've just started designing for this game, and I really like to take time on my maps to make them high quality. Is it required I send a submission? I don't have a map ready, but in a week or so I'm putting a showcase up.

I'll join if you want. I know my way round MOST of World Builder, and if you look on the EA maps/mod forums I've answered quite a few questions for people regarding WB.
It's quite funny that practically all who're joinging are fomr the WB clan {IP}==> shows how effective it is!

It is likely either A) They've found some one, or B) They're forgetting about this all together.

They haven't found anyone... yet. Or they're not releasing it.
