Summary Table of the Stronghold Map Bundle
The lists below consist of maps with exceptional design and engaging gameplay. This was done to satisfy the agreement made between Firefly Studios and HeavenGames to include 300 fan-made maps in the next edition of the original Stronghold. Stronghold Heaven staff members recalled old favorites and new masterpieces alike to formulate the bundle list. Unfortunately, for whatever reason, contact was not be made with many map-makers or they replied too late. Consequently, their wonderful compositions were not included, but we have, never the less, listed below their creations that we appreciate so much.
The collective efforts of the Stronghold Heavens' staff members compounded the bundle list. However, this would have been more tedious without the technical help of Papaya and Zen, and impossible without the negotiation done by HeavenGames CEO Socvazius, and the steadfast Stronghold map-making community who manufactured the maps and prize the game. Thank you.
Maps in the bundle*
These maps listed under this heading were those for which SHH received the author's permission in time for them to be notified
*The vast majority of these maps made it into the bundle. Firefly asked for just 300 but many more were nominated and we sought permission from the authors for their use. Eventually about 325 were gathered and passed on to FireFly. So being in this list is not an absolute guarantee that the map is actually in the final bundle of 300.
Nominated files not in the final bundleThese maps were nominated but for various reasons did not make it into the bundle. The reasons for this include: the author's permission was not received in time; the author's permission not given; the nomination was received after the bundle was sent to FireFly. In addition there were some maps which were nominated but do not appear in the list below. We experienced some database errors possibly associated with the older maps and the custom database tools we were using to compile the list. Also some members had no up-to-date email recorded. As a result, sadly, some nominated maps could not be added to the list. Regretfully we did not keep a note of such nominations.
