Re: OpenRA - Startup settings (player / mapoptions) location

Default settings for skirmish can be changed in a .yaml, I did it for my TeamTurkey mod. (map settings will still override these). Was looking into this myself, I always play "explored map" and the default is off.

Create a file called "newdefaults.yaml" and add the following:

Code: Select all

Player:
	Shroud:
		ExploredMapCheckboxEnabled: True
Add it as the final entry under rules in your mod.yaml

What are the settings you're trying to fix?

Nothing special, I'm merely looking for - beginner level and structured - documentation on this matter.
Since I've found none of that material (so far) I'm busy creating the documentation I want have myself.
