Re: thunder's map

It looks quite uninteresting, with the minimal fighting space. But then, I haven't played it or very much 1v1 at all, so I could be wrong. Still, quite small locations makes knight strategies or all melee in general pretty much useless. I think it can afford a little more fighting room, perhaps entrances at the top of the bases?

Also, if you are going to use map copy, why not use mirror? The map would be balanced then ;)

Re: thunder's map

I dont like mirroring, and copy paste.:) I just tried out. I wanted to vreate balanced loacation, but with nearly the same chance.
These two locations have three-three little entrances. The northern one is the smallest and the nearest together. The shoutest arethe farest and the widest.

For me interesting one player says its campy map and another one says a map for rush...
It is already GG;) :D

How i see, after i played also. I dont like to use fell only function, and this is why interesting this map. I wanted to make small roads with lots of choke points. The reason was easy: nobody can do stay 40 bows and just stay... (the bases are enough crowded for standing with 40-50bows inside without trafficjams etc...)
"The small cities can work better on it."-David said.-Perhaps yes.

anyway the next one is under process and that will have similar copied base...which is boring but maybe fair if placed well...im still hoping will work:)

So just Have fun as always!

The point is if you are going to use copy/paste, why not also use mirror?

Re: thunder's map

For me mirroring isnt equal for balancing. But sometimes can be good or funny.
Copy paste loc as you see i tried to use again the same system with huge variatons, i wanted to be equal chance at the entry points. Top and bottom of the locs have nearly the same entry points, the tower making are there on nearly the same way. If just mirrored the locs possible can't get the same result, i mean on top will have much much wider entrances etc...

This is the new one //it was 3 hour:
attached as zip file

Called it Alagsor. 1v1.
Fast building(6-6 serf and builder), lot of corn because the farm is opened. Larger location than on the amphibiant.
The fighting zone again campy, but larger and the trainable army is also larger.
Have fun!
:)

Re: thunder's map

Hi again!

Circus is already remade... Now all units are simply visible. Guards, and gladiators. Minimal army. (I adice top vs bottom, or left vs right, because possible corners vs centre wont work as well...:s)

Re: thunder's map

Alagsor is like your shortened version of Desert Line, but with lots of space/resources.

Respect the fighting area, is quite sad to do it like that... unless you disable towers.

Still I'd like something new and crazy: A complete cordillera (mountains chain) from left to right... but with SUPER NARROW passages of 2 tiles (using the mountains borders tiles).
This way it delimits where can you build... and will be really funny to see the armies cross the mountains in different areas.

I prepare this little multiplayer map for you Thunder to make you understand better my idea. :P
Of course you will take care of asymmetric details later... or probably use this to make a whole new map?

Re: thunder's map

My final advices:
1) Increase fishes from 20 to 50 in each lake -> Rich start remember?
2) Disable towers. Many towers + archers turns into boring gameplay, and impossible for cavalry to rush base.
3) Map lacks landscape beauty... Where are the "large mushrooms concentrations"? Adds +1 quality point. :)
4) Passages recommended to be of 2 tiles and placed further from center (more variations for tactical decisions).

Re: thunder's map

Jó tudni, hogy magyar csinálta az Iceline-t, egyik kedvenc pályánk a társammal meg az apjával. 17-18 meccsből 2-szer kaptunk ki rajta. Le a kalappal! :)

Sorry, for the Hungarian comment, but it was a bit personal.

Re: thunder's map

The terrain is not bad, but some locations have really close mountains that are big obstacles in city building.
To be honest, I wouldn't play on these locations (e.g. 5, 6) happily. You can hardly make an efficient city plan there.
