How do I publish a scenario?
Be sure to save your scenario first, then quit to the main menu. Go to "Load & Publish", select the scenario you want to publish, then select "Publish". On Mobile, you will need a Ndemic Nexus account, you will be prompted to create one or sign in when publishing. On Steam, you just need to be logged into Steam and online.
How do I browse and play my Scenarios?
First of all, make sure that your Scenario is saved in the Scenario Creator (give it a memorable and descriptive name!). You can save your Scenario through the ‘cog’ menu in the top right of the screen. On Steam, all your saved Scenarios can be found by pressing the ‘Scenarios’ button in the single player menu of Rebel Inc. and then pressing play.
How can I update or edit a Scenario which I have already published?
Find the scenario in the ‘Load & Publish’ screen (it will have a tick to indicate that it is already published). Press the ‘Load’ button on this scenario, and make any changes before finally saving. Revisit the ‘Load & Publish’ screen and again find the scenario in the list view (it will now have an ! icon to indicate that there are unpublished changes). Press the ‘Publish’ button again to update your Scenario with the latest local version.
How can I reset all of the variables in an Editor?
You can clear all edited variables from an editor by pressing the trash icon in the top right of the screen. This will reset all values in that Editor back to their default game values. Please note that you can not recover your changes once they have been reset. The ‘Scenario Overview’ Editor is always on and can not be disabled.
How do I make Player Tactics, Insurgent Tactics or Map Features?
The Scenario Creator allows players to create similar effects to the Tactics and Features seen in Campaign mode, by directly modifying variables across the various Editors. To communicate these changes to your players, you can add names, icons and descriptions in the ‘Custom Tactics & Features’ section in the Scenario Overview, allowing you create and explain Tactics and Features with your own twist!
How do I spawn a Tank, or another special unit type?
In order to spawn a Tank you must check the box to deploy a Soldier (Coalition or National) and select ‘Tank’ in the attachment drop down in the Initiative Editor, when creating a new Initiative. A Tank will be deployed when the Initiative is funded.
The same method can be used for Urban, Rural and Remote specialists too.
How can I make Custom Government Actions?
Select an Initiative in the Initiative Editor, scroll all the way to the bottom and click/tap the button to create a new Zone Action. This will reveal a series of variables which will control the effects which occur in a Zone when the Initiative is rolled out. Some Initiatives have special conditions hard-coded into them, which can’t be created from scratch. However, Initiatives with special conditions can be duplicated and then customised. Special conditions are described at the top of the scroll, when selected. Creating custom Concerns or Priorities is not currently supported in Scenario Creator.
