Map Editor (Mac): Cannot find saved .map
« on: August 08, 2018, 04:46:37 PM »
Hiya,

I've been a long time lurker for quite some time.

I've downloaded 0.62 and dabbled with the map editor. However, after saving the map I cannot locate where the actual file is on my computer. I could not find it in CorsixTH's package contents (of the app) nor in a place like Library/Application Support.

Using Spotlight and Alfred didn't help.

Where are custom maps made in the map editor saved on a Mac? I'd love to turn it into a usable level.

FYI: It can be loaded after saving it, so the game knows where it is and the maps are actually saved.

Ugh, I spent hours looking for the answer. I finally found the correct directory - which was a hidden one.

On Mac OS X (since Sierra) hit CMD + SHIFT + . to show/hide hidden files and directories. Go to /Users/<Yourname>/ and you'll find a .config hidden directory. In it you'll find a CorsixTH folder, where you'll find the Levels, Saves and Screenshots folders.

It's weird to store these items in such a well hidden place. Library is usually already a pretty secure place to store items like this. Especially Screenshots...
