Manipulation of terrain or adding terrain features

Hi guys just a thought do you think we’ll ever be able to manipulate the terrain or add in Conan Exiles? For me personally this would make a already fantastic game even better. The thought of creating on top of the world we already have to make it our own world fills me with a overwhelming hope. What are your thoughts guys?

They would have to entirely rework the game to make that happen, unfortunately. It would also really mess with a lot of the hand crafted locations that are in the game.

If you enjoy terrain manipulation in a survival type game with building, I strongly recommend No Man’s Sky. It’s come a really long way.

I never miss a chance to plug NMS haha :stuck_out_tongue:

It would be nice if Conan: Exiles had a “world builder” for the game. Even if it were to be used as a mod on private servers and Solo/Co-op, it would be fund to create a world and populate it, then invite other players to explore and survive it.

That’s basically the dev kit lol.

Pretty much. People often think we don’t have the tools, but we do and have had them. If you have the skills, time, and experience, you can build your own map now. It just takes a ton of work to do.

Really? A real world builder. I am meaning starting with a blank map and building up terrain and populating that terrain with objects and actors. I have the skills and the experience to build worlds; I did not realize the dev kit permitted new map development that could be shared with other players. I will check into it. :smiley:

I don’t know all that much about it myself, but @Multigun here knows quite a lot. There’s a Discord Server specifically for modding, which can be a great jumping point for learning or getting inspiration.

I’m not a map editing expert, it’s something I want to learn eventually (too busy having my life revolve around sockets at the moment). But there is documentation floating around on the discord (via the pins) you linked on the basics on getting started with the dev kit, and of course map editing and such. It helps a great deal if you are already familiar with UE4, otherwise that learning curve will be a bit longer.

The Discord Server link is not available to me. Does it require a specific software or browser?

Is that the only option on the dev kit, editing the existing map? One cannot create an entirely new map and populate it with objects and actors?

You can create whole new maps yes. There are a few in progress (or partially completed) maps on the workshop now.

Thanks for responding.
180 gig is a lot of download; I want to be certain I can create maps not just decorate one.

Hmmmm…to be entirely honest, I have no idea why it isn’t working @_@

Probably my security; it is very tight.

Minecraft… shy of 2gbs, and you can go nutts. XD

If Only we had Conan themed skins…

I’m not on PC unfortunately wish something would come to xbox to be allowed map building for Conan :sob::sob:
