Map Editor Rocks Menu

The following are descriptions of all the options in the Rocks menu in the Stronghold 2 Editor. For information on other editor menus, please see this page.


Rocks are fantastic features which help to increase the realism on your map. The first row in this menu adds rocks of varying shapes and sizes. The second row alters the rocks. The first icon on the second row will shorten the rocks you have placed, while the second icon will increase their length.

Iron Ore

This is what Iron Mines are placed on during the game. Without placing Iron Ore, you will be unable to naturally collect any form of Iron in your game.

Iron Rocks

Though these rocks can technically be placed anywhere on your map, they should be placed over Iron Ore. Note that you can still place Iron Mines on Iron Ore without these rocks being placed, but you cannot place Iron Mines only on Iron Rocks.

Stone Texture

This texture is what your Stone Quarries are placed on during the game. It allows your Stone Quarries to work, and without this texture you would be unable to naturally produce any Stone on your map.
