Worms Reloaded is the latest Worms game from Team 17 Software. It has everything that Worms 2 on XBLA had, plus tons of new stuff like custom maps and new weapons. Worms Reloaded is available through Steam. They offer a 4-pack. We have a group buy thread here.

Just joined the group, didn't know the map editor was so robust. I'll have to get in to that!

Glad you got it, Hydro. You'll have to let us know when you complete a map.

New map!

Download here.

Wormgineers now has a simple app that lets you change the background of your maps, so I used a space BG instead of a blank one.

So, I made a custom map in Photoshop. I was able to open the .tga file in the Worms editor, place spawns, barrels, etc... and it saved just fine as an .lds file. However, when I try to play the map with a friend, I can load it up and it seems to send the data fine, but when I click the checkbox to start, my game crashes. Anyone know what the deal is?

Got my map working. Play tested it a few times with some friends and we all quite enjoyed it, so I present my first Worms custom map.

Looks great, dude. Now I'm being just a little anal here, but if most of those rows don't have any spaces in them, wouldn't they disappear? Otherwise it's perfect.

And you guys could leave comments on my maps too! Even if they are silly.

Dude, Brian Crescente, was an instant WTF, and subsequent download for later, haha.

Good stuff in general, guys, like what's been posted so far. Keep it up.

I should attempt a retro gaming map just for the heck of it, and to finally get back into some design stuff that's gaming-oriented (haven't done much of that since the TE stick, eh).

Love the Bionic Commando map. My friends and I have been playing the hell out of it.

I'm making another Tetris map, this time without full rows of blocks and a better block layout for more diverse gameplay.

I cant stop making maps with those damn Tetris blocks though. They just seem so perfect for the game.

How to use your own background:
  • Download the Paint.net app.
  • Create two layers. Put the background image on the bottom layer and the main image (the stuff the Worms can stand on and can't move through) on the top layer.
  • Double-click the bottom layer on the Layer palette and set its transparency to 253. Don't change the transparency of the top layer.
  • Save the image as a TGA with no compression and say yes when the program asks if it can flatten the image. The TGA is ready to be placed in Worms' UserLandscapes folder. :)
I also revised the tutorial in the OP.

My first map to use a custom background is here. It took a lot of time to cut everything out and then add new areas to the level...

Looking forward to that new Tetris map, SEH! I have an idea for one too, but I am holding off on it due to your getting there first. Hydro, are you going to dip your toes into the custom map pool sometime?

Wow, I didnt know there was a new Worms game out. Looks pretty awesome! And the reviews sound good too. Ahh, the memories...now if they only would bring out another Lemmings as well. Unless I'm out of the loop there, too?

There was a new Lemmings for PS3 (downloadable) and PSP a few years ago. Sony owns the property now, I believe.

Do alot of people still play worms online? I was thinking of picking it up but I would need some people to play it with.
