Twin Castles

Author File Description
sorinel1991
File Details
Map Size: Medium
Difficulty: Hard
Minimap:
The two Pigs rule the county from this two imposing castles. Lord Longarm has agreed to send you reinforcements if you earn 1500 honor, he can also send some iron, but the route to his castle is blocked by enemy forces. If you clear the way to his castle he will be able to assist you in taking this county.

Tip: Start stone production early to defend your castle with walls and towers, the enemy is attacking in numbers and fast.

Tip: You don't have iron in your estate, clear the way near the bridge so Lord Longarm(Orange) can send you iron.

Tip: The estate(yellow) near you has plenty of stone, capture it early in the game to receive stone.

Notes: Save it to(extract it to) C:\Users\username\Documents\Stronghold 3\Maps
and select it in game from Single player - Game Modes - User Maps

Please leave feedback and Have Fun!

I uploaded 3 more for weeks now but they don't show up...I send an e-mail about it, I hope they will show.
yesitis2197 Yes I agree, your maps continue to provide hours of play time. They are also getting harder LOL. Please follow up with the admin about getting them posted.
One comment. You might want to give a hint or 2 as to what needs to get really going. I normally have to spend several attempts to figure out how to get the troops "stopped" so I can continue to play. I almost stopped playing this map entirely because I could not get past the first several attacks.
KEEP up to the great work
Stratego Impossible to repel the enemy's massive attacks; what is the trick to survive these steady onslaughts?

You should first build ur walls and towers to close both ways and defend with archers and crossbowmen. You have some iron to make shields. You can also build a mangonel and defend with that. You should get honor early, and between the attacks you should clear the bridge to the west. This way you will get a big reinforcement that you can use to kill the green opponent you also get iron, and you can start making swordsman to finish the last one. You get a lot of stone from the start from the near estate that gives u stone.

Something you should know about the carts that transport the iron and stone is that they won't transport it if the castle is closed with walls(they don't use the gate it's a bug) you should leave a gap for them to get inside the castle and close the gap when u are under attack.

There is a guy on youtube sergiuhelldragoon that played on this map and you can get some tips from him.

You can also leave the stockpile outside(stockpile cannot be destroyed) and build walls around the keep. The most important thing is to clear the bridge and u get reinforcements, than u will be able to complete this map.
Stratego Thanks for your hints, but they don't work as you don't have enough time neither to fortify your position nor to hire enough crossbowmen nor archers to repel the enemy; you will be overrun without any chance ... frustrating!
This map isn't winnable or playable; if you are trying to pass the bridge with your men, they don't return to your keep after having "cleared" the zone near the bridge... they get stuck right on it ..

Thanks for your feedback, I recently replayed this map and you are right it is too hard! I made it a long time ago and I know that I won it, but you are right it is very hard and frustrating. I will remake it to be more easy on difficulty. You can also check my other maps and I hope you find them more enjoyable than this one.
