Ye Old Castle

Author File Description
SpetsnazCCCP
File Details
Map Size: 200x200 (Small)
Minimap:
My castle was build ontop of a pretty large hill with water surrounding it. I put many trees into the map to make it look sort of forresty. For eyecandy, I put in the bridge for the entrance of my castle. You don't have much resources to start with so you should plan carefuly what you want to do. Overall, it's a fun map to play if you like a challenge.

A fun free build map.

Playability-3
As I started this map, the first thing I noticed was that there were trees everywhere. Although it was quite fun to use a shell of a castle to gradually build and expand from, I spent the first few minutes clearing out trees. Apart from that though, an enjoyable play.

Balance-4
Apart from the tree issue, the map was well balanced. With limited valley floor and limited goods, it is a challenge to grow your castle. Howver, because of the design of the map the castle soon reaches its limits.

Creativity-4
I like the idea of building and expanding a pre-built castle. Although I have never really played a free build before, this was a surprise (the in game ones cosist mostly of flat plains).

Map Design-4
I liked the map design, and thought the castle, especially the bridge and towers, was well done. A bit rough occasionally but overall good.

Story-2
Why no story? Apart from a short background intro (about 3 lines) there is no story. Put one in!!!

Overall a fun map, and one that could easily become a future invasion with the right work. Well done Spetsnazz!
