Hi everyone. My next map, Iron Mountains should be ready for playtesting in a week or so. I would like one or maybe two playtesters who will play it extensively. It will feature caves and no trees (buy wood), SH1 invasion

here are some screenshots. (captions related to story)


minimap (note: this has been updated below)


spring in south


Mount Menelgrim


Mount Telrondor


Village of Minatel


Monument to the three Great Lords

Hey everyone, I would really appreciate a review for my SH1 invasion map, Iron Mountains

Nice screens MoP. I like the waterfalls and the mountains. The rocks are also distributed nicely. Looks you made some progress with the map. When will be ready?

PS: Name's "Iron Mountains" but i see only stone deposits(?)

I like a map in which I can dig a moat and this one looks like that is going to be available to the player. Is it?

Very detailed areas. Most I like the fine and chaotic ditch of the spring as well as rocks & earth of Mount Telrondor.
Like Lord_of_Hell, I wonder where the iron can be found. (Especially the south-eastern mountain looks like having a pathway.)
And ... will the story provide a reason why there are no trees in the frutile land?

I'd like to offer my service for play testing your map.

The iron is buried underground!!!(just like RL ) In the SS there are maybe 4 cave entrances shown, 5 total on the map. And to be more specific all of the iron is located within Mt. Telrondor, 4 mines worth.

It will be ready for playtesting within 2 weeks, hopefully 1, idk about full release yet. The good bandits problem is forcing me to change stuff but I am still trying to get them to work so it will take longer than expected. And no moats eric (it would become too easy).

I'll be happy to have ya peter once it is ready.

The screen of the three great lords looks very nice

If you like very big battles, i suggest you to try Massacre at Tenjin

Underground iron stored in secret caves! This map sounds interesting...

I like the look of the mountains. Good job!

Actually playtesting is almost complete, there is a fairly good chance this will be out next week. So you must wait, shouldn't be long.

I think the next one will take longer just cuz I don't know what I want to make, these first two I already had planned out and did not need to spend time experimenting.

Hi MaeterofPhate

Just to let you know that in Internet Explorer 7 I get wierd characters on the DL page of your map

e.g.
A lone traveler toiled on the road, pulling his pack mule after him. �Almost there.� he muttered
In case you cannot see them in my quote it goes like this
A lone traveler toiled on the road, pulling his pack mule after him. {weird chars start here}Almost there.{and here}he muttered
They look like several letter As with funny accents above and commas in between.

Well it appears that the funny letters are all in places where quotation marks and apostrophes used to be. I have fixed it now.

And palat, the loss conditions are strict so you need to pay attention to your population levels because they relate to both the fear factor and pop cap, and don't lose too many of the good things.
