Adding an Author to a Map

Recommended Posts

I'm really surprised this hasn't been mentioned in some official post somewhere, because it seems kinda important and nobody seems to know how to do it.

All you need to do it open your map in notepad, go to Edit -> Find and search for [Basic]. Then, under [Basic], add Author=Your Name Here.

You may want to download and use notepad++ for this.

Here's an example.

The client indeed reads the author from [Basic] Author=.

Also, you should use a text editor that supports Unix-style line endings, like Notepad++ or Wordpad.

@rishain Maybe it's something to do with the client. Does the example map display the author for you?
