upload (MP)maps

Would you like a Multiplayer map suit for 'all for you one'. I have made one. You can also play 2vs2vs2vs2 or 4vs4. Would you like to play them? And give my a feedback? I hope i hear soon.

Re: upload (MP)maps

It doesn't look that bad terrain-wise although there are many tiles that need to be checked again. There is also too few gold compared with the distance some people need to build towards goldmountains. Another thing that can go wrong is the large amount of fish, people can build their food production based purely on fish. Coalfields need to be more smooth and the amount of resources need to be checked so it's balanced between all locs.

Anyway keep up the good work!

I have change some things you said, there was really a lot of fish. And now some locs have better begin place to the goldmountains.
I hope you like it more now :)

Re: upload (MP)maps

That's an interesting map, we don't have any quite like it. The terrain is pretty good but there are still some things to fix:
- Use magic water in Krom's editor to fix the direction the water flows
- Coal can look much better if placed by hand (screenshot made by The Dark Lord about a different map): http://i.imgur.com/qW6zI.png
- Iron hills can also look better if placed by hand, take a look at original maps, the iron is usually highly concentrated)
- Watch out for hard tile edges which look ugly (screenshot made by The Dark Lord about a different map): http://i.imgur.com/5PUlJ.png

Re: upload (MP)maps

Indeed, follow Lewin's instructions on placing ore by hand. In fact, you should never use the gold, coal, and iron terrains. Stone ore is okay, but all others should be placed individually (tile by tile).

I will provide feedback after exams.

Waiting to see playtest results of it, they will certainly change a few things.

Re: upload (MP)maps

Ohh! SOOOO much better, Kolego! :D Still, you need to change more of the iron tiles. The only ones that should be visable are the largest and second-largest concentration. The thinner concentrations don't look good at all.

When you believe that your map has reached the testing stage, try uploading it on TeamSpeak and asking the people there if they want to try it out. if we have some extra time on our hands and are feeling risky, then we may give it a shot ;)
