  • [Request] Allow multiple mirror from the same map [addoninfo.txt]

    Would be nice to have an way to replicate the same map with different names in addoninfo.txt without the need to recompile it with different name.
    An Friendly name would be nice also, to be able to display an map on the list without the underscore _

    Something like that:

    	maps			"dota dota_random_skills dota_10v10"
    	"IsPlayable"	"1"
    	   "MaxPlayers" "20"
    	   "FileName" "dota"
    	   "FriendlyName" "Dota 10 vs 10"
    	   "FileName" "dota"
    	   "FriendlyName" "Random Skills"
    The reason for that, at least for me, is to separate the players base.

    - Players that like playing normal game, usually quit when the mode was set to random skills
    - Allow to have an 10v10 map and an 5v5 map, if i simply use the 10v10 to play 5v5 it will not be auto-ready when 10 players is in lobby.

    Currently i have multiple versions of dota map recompile with different names to allow that, and this increase the map size, and everytime that dota map is changed, i have to recompile then again to make it always updated...

    I saw some peoples that wanted that for set an Difficulty for rpg maps as well
