netmis.txt, typically referred to simply as netmis, is a text file which defines the Battlezone maps which can be hosted by the player. Modification of netmis.txt allows the player to host custom maps in multiplayer; a map does not have to be listed in order to be played as a client.
Entry Composition Edit
mult01.bzn mult01.des 2 8 netveh.txt D Leap Of Faith
The example above is the first line of an unmodified netmis file. It defines the deathmatch (D) map Leap of Faith, which uses the BZN file
mult01.bzn, is described by
mult01.des, is for two to eight players and uses the default vehicle list.
Mapadder, created in 1998 by Marc Bellingrath of the Battlezone Cartographer's Guild, was designed to allow users to install and uninstall maps easily. It installs maps from .mad files - plaintext files containing the relevant netmis entries - usually only one, but occasionally more.
