Default Basic Knowledge in Regions

Basic Knowledge in regions

This tutorial is for new map makers who would like to learn the basics in using regions. With the examples given, I am sure that they can get some informations
that regions are important in a map. A map without region(s) isn't a good map. I have not seen a map that do not use regions, send me one if there is.




What are regions?

Regions need triggers to reference them so that they can be properly used. Otherwise, they will have no effect in the game. They can be used to set off triggers or to delineate areas a trigger will affect.
Regions are invisible in the game but they are present there. They are made as reference of some events or actions that an editor wants.

You can rename a region as you like. Be sure that the name you will give to that region will not confuse you at the time you will use it.
You can also rerset the color of a region. You may resize a region. Just left-click the region you'd like to resize to select it. left-click hold
at the edge of that region to resize it as you desire.


What are Regions' Use
Regions are used as reference.

1. In choosing hero in a Hero Arena. See This Tutorial for detailed explanations about Hero Arena.
2. Creating Special Effects
3. Spawning/crreating Units
