AOW Editor is a tool intended primarily to create maps and scenarios in the game, “Age of Wonders.” The scenario program includes item and hero editors as well. Users of the utility can use this comprehensive program to create new campaigns and unique scenarios. This is helpful to the user because many different parameters can be customized and scenarios may be created from the ground up. Object properties may be edited using this program via a right-click menu or a double-click action. The program offers users a wide array of possibilities and the creation of detail, which similar programs do not offer.
The program can build scenarios for both single-player games and multiplayer games. The tool also allows for editing of scenarios that are already in place. An existing landscape can be converted into another kind of environment in a jiffy. AOW Editor allows for map creation. There are four sizes supported by the program, which are 48x48, 64x64, 96x96, 128x128. There are also two subterranean levels available, namely an overlay level, and a base terrain level. The scenarios produced can be played once completed by any kind of combination of AI and human players.
AOW Editor presents users with a Windows interface that is easy to use. Because of the relatively small file size the scenario files produced can be uploaded and shared via online platforms easily.
