This is my first serious map ever, and I would appreciate any feedback to improve the map. If you could refrain from reviewing it until I'm finished with it, that would help. =)
Think of this as a "Beta" of the map. I'm aware of two bugs and I would appreciate any help on how to fix them - both the massive stockpile of enemies building up around the signpost and the enemies completely not moving, anywhere on the map, making loss impossible, sometime when they reach the last area of your Stronghold (If they make it that far).
Also, any map issues you think are extremely ugly and would like me to remove would also help me improve it.
I say again, please don't review this until I'm finished with it, as it may give some people the wrong impression(Unless you're going to give it 5.0 =P ).
You have found a valley with rich resources - water, farmland, green grass, iron and stone. But what makes this place even more special is the unique hills surrounding and inside it, making for an effective defence. Although you would rather not need to defend against anything, your rivals have seen fit to try and take this prime land from you, and they will even team up to do it.
- Defend from the joint attacks of arabs and crusaders until they give up, and deem you invincible, securing this land as yours.
- Do not die!! This goes without saying, I assmume.
- If too many of your troops die, (1000 at current, will most likely be changed in versions to come to balance as soon as you lose about enough troops so that you would have pretty much lost anyway(I also want feedback on this, if you found that you were halfway through the scenario with a perfect defense and you lost, please report it. If you however were down to 3 soldiers and the enemy bugs out, letting you sit there for 10 years without attacking, I also want to know)) the locals of the village and the arabs living native in this valley will stop coming to your aid, or worse still, they may all be dead. If this happens, you will suffer defeat, as you will not have any means of defense.
About your bug with the "massive stockpile of enemies building up around the signpost: Your keep is inaccessible. Also, the enemy may not be able to rerach the signpost altogether. There is an article on fixing lazy invasion forces in www.stronghold-knights.com
