this is my first map, think its working fairly well. any input so i can make better ones would be appreciated. enjoy
DM: thanks forthe info, i'm a complete noob at this but after seeing the LOTR map pack, i've decided to try my hand at it. hopefully they will get better in time
1st attempt, i'll try tweeking it out a bit more, i figured some of the playability would be way off, wasn't quite sure how to get everything to work, hopefilly i'll get a chance this week to fix the playability
Quite low, fun to play but way to hard, almost impossible, you place 4 farms outside the castle and just a few bakeries inside, a castle of 74 (is that right?) can't run on that, my granery was empty very soon and people started to leave my castle. plus: you start without any troops and in 1-2 year's time you must collect enough weapons to defeat 2 major invasions of about 300 including knights and armorered guys.
Well becouse of the fact that you don't get any starting troops and little time to get everything running makes this lower, put more start weaopons, a low part in the castle to put the farms and some start troops and this could be 5.
I like the idea of a castle in the river need to stop a fleet, also the form is diffirent wich makes it look nice.
Map Design: 4
The castle itself was simply great with lots of crenellated wall eye candy, looking way to nice to fit in this landscape.
The landscape is not really nice to look at, very little bushes in very much forest, did you add more forest after making this minimap?
The iron and stone placement of a low level, just solid.
Many improvement avaliable here, the castle makes it 4.
1 for adding atory+ instuctions
0/2 for story itself couse there is no
2/2 for the instructions wich were very clear
there were some strange messages like "animal tracks have been reported in the area sire" and
"The king will reward you for you services when he returns" or something like that wich do not fit in the storyline.
This map has many of the beginner mistakes wich are totally normal.
If you need more advice on making maps look in the editor 101 found on the main page or just sent me an email with what you want to know like "how do i make naturally-looking open spaces in forests?" or something like that and i'll help you as much as i can.
But please make clear to me you are the maker of "my first map" by adding something like hi i'm ( stronghold heaven name) from My 1st map
Make more maps and you'll see you'll get better with every single one.
