This is for those of you who wish to open the official C&C3 maps, which is particularly useful given the specific lighting and postfx settings for the different zone types.
- Step 1: Grab a C&C3 .big file opener, you can get it at Project Perfect Mod
Step 2: Open the mpmaps.big typically found in C:Program Files/Electronic Arts/C&C3/MP/1.0/
Step 3: Extract the files inside.
Step 4: Place those maps in C:Users/<your_user_name>/AppData/Roaming/C&C3/Maps/ (Note! You may need to change your settings to view hidden files, since the AppData folder is hidden)
Note: This may alternatively be in the C:Documents and Settings/<your_user_name>/Application Data/C&C3/Maps/ depending on your version of Windows.
Step 5: Load the World Builder and click open, they'll be seen in the list of options shown. You can also play any maps placed in that folder in C&C3.
