Ideally, template format should be 100% compatible with OH3 format and bring additional improvements.

List of currently available templates

  • Analogy
  • Upgrade
  • Golden Ring
  • Unfair Game
  • Jebus Cross

Template format

/// Unique template name
"Triangle" :

        "name" : "Custom template name",

	/// Minimal and maximal size of the map. Possible formats:
	/// Size code: s, m, l or xl for size with optional suffix "+u" for underground
	/// Numeric size, e.g.  120x120x1 (width x height x depth). Note that right now depth can only be 0 or 1
	"minSize" : "m",
	"maxSize" : "xl+u",

	/// Number of players that will be present on map (human or AI)
	"players" : "4",

	/// Number of AI-only players
