This is a skirmish map, and not an eyecandy/landscape. It has big globs of stone and iron all around the map. I played against the Abbot of Stirling in a normal game with computer advantage (8,000 starting gold for computer, 2,000 gold for the player). It was too easy, the Abbot's castle had some building problems becasue of the landscape. It jammed up to a point where it would only create a few monks. The placement of the weapons shops in relation to the stockpile is not realistic. I moved the granary closer to the bakeries. There is a fight over the resources, the computer builds right on the farmland closest to you. Then the farms, quarries, and iron mines get mixed together - therefore the title "Where is everybody" does make sense since its hard to see the different owners unless you move the mouse over them. Since the story is almost completely lost in the translation, it doesnt contribute any thing that could change this from being a low 2.
I will have to say that I am offically giving this the Lollard 'Thumbs Down'.
