Are there player made scenarios to download? Thanks

We're also going to be utilising the facilities on Steam to house user made scenarios. There will be more news on that shortly.
Are user made scenarios specific to particular modules? Or can they make scenarios for other battles, etc?
User made scenario's can be mods of existing ones or completely scratch built and everything in between .
The author of a user made scenario will provide the files necessary to make up the scenario, ideally with instructions on where to extract the data.
The major operational parts of a user made scenario are:
1) The scenario (file(s) with extension ".cos), which should be installed under the Scenarios directory and an appropriate sub-directory (I created one called User Scenarios) to identify it as separate from the original game or expansion module(s) you purchased with the game. There may also be some bitmap graphics included (".bmp" extension) with the same name as the scenario file. These should be installed in the directory where you installed the scenario.
2) The map (files with extensions ".cop" and ".cop.cache"), which should be installed in the Maps directory for the core game install. If none is provided with the scenario, then it is using a map already available with the game.
3) The Estabs (files of the same name [ e.g. "UserScenario"] with the extensions ".xml", ".coe" [e.g. "UserScenario.xml", "UserScenario.coe"], and sometimes an images directory of the same name [e.g "UserScenarioEstab_images] which should be installed in the Estabs directory..
If a Map or Estab component is missing from the information the user posts, then it is the same as one already installed in the game, and no action is necessary to install and play the scenario.
Users may also provide separate documents explaining the scenario or graphics to go along with their scenario. The document should be placed somewhere where you can reference it if desired. The author should explain where the install the graphic for the scenario.
Hope this helps.
