I'd like to create my own *.sly files, but i can't find
any scenario editor.
If no editor exists, i'd like to program it, if anybody
knew the file layout.

Once you have Slay up, press ctrl+m, or go to file>map editor.

I want a scenario editor, with the possibility to edit ALL units, terrains,
money, trees etc, not just the shape of the islands.

I'm working on it..
..and the first beta version is almost ready to release.

Guten Rutsch Euch allen!

Since the game engine places starting units/etc. at match start, I think the only way you can do that is to create a utility to edit save files, then load the save game as a scenario. Someone manipulated a save game through playing to create a scenario I believe, but if you pull off an editor, it'll be pretty amazing, too.

Wow, I'm impressed!

Am I mistaken, or does it seem that the editor presents a larger map area than the integrated one does?

Yes, it draws all hexagons, but you can edit only the valid one.

I highly suggest trying it out. It's a neat power toy.
