How to edit map size?

Uncle_UziUncle_Uzi Registered Users Posts: 32
I imagine maps are about as large as they are supposed to be.

But I want to be able to shrink down the deployment zone and playable area of a map.

Can I do that? Is there a file where I can edit playable area coordinates or something?

I have my main unit tables set to reduce unit sizes substantially, down to TT scale. I have 16 man units of core troops, 12 man units of missile infantry, and 5-10 man units of cavalry. Surprisingly the balance holds up really well and it allows me to play the game from a closer perspective. Still have to fiddle with monster and hero stats to get the balance right. A troll might as well be a giant when there's barely a dozen men in a unit.

Problem is, the maps are way too big for this, and it takes too long to get into combat. I want smaller maps with smaller deployment zones, focused around key terrain, to get me a true 6'x4' table experience. It's all I want.

Anyone have any info on how to possibly do this? Would be hugely grateful and would probably upload a basic mod for everyone if we can figure this out.
