Rome: City of the Conqueror

Author File Description
Lord Karpathea
File Details
Map Size: 400x400 (Large)
Minimap:
This is my first Freebuild/Landscape map here at SH. I'm also working on an invasion version. Still working out the bugs on the AI though, so here's the map itself. Learn it, study it. A few cool things on this map, the most obvious of which is what no SH designer has ever done before........The Coliseum. That's right, I spent roughly 3 hours working on the first SH Roman Coliseum. Others are the battle going on in the Coliseum, so go there immediatly after starting the map. If you get bored, just put some more caged war dogs in with the "gladiators", release them, sit back ,and watch the bloodshed. Another thing that took me a long time to make is the city's aqueduct. If you're wondering why some of the water from the aqueduct is going into the Coliseum, that's because the Coliseum had the ability to be flooded for re-creating ship battles. But anything else on this map is for you to figure out yourself. Hope you enjoy it and rate it please......oh, and there's a readme file with a bunch of info and crap on it about the Roman Army. Enjoy!

Thank you for the Reviews, but sadly, the invasion is not working out. It keeps screwing up. Like, for example, it says an invasion has arrived, and then nothing appears at the signpost. Instead the little ! mark on the minimap that shows where its coming from goes to the bottom right corner of the map, no where near a signpost. Unless someone knows how to fix it, I'm scraping the Invasion version. Sorry.

Very nice. eyecandy was everyware. The only thing i didnt like about the map was the one section of the city where their was think walls surrounding the houses and the outside feild could have been better.

Story/Instructions: 5
you had alot about it so you deserve a 5

Additional Comments:
Yoda48 I got your message on my morrowind post. The thing about the houses is that they look a little strange. thats what i meant. It didnt hurt your score though. If you improved on the fields and maybe decorate the moutains i will change my score.

Dougleass hell no you're not the first one to make a colloseum. I've even made one myself, and spent 7 hours on it.

Anyways, enough bragging.
The city looks kinda plain. It has some eyecandy, but there's some parts that has pretty much nothing to it. The houses looks a bit...well odd. I've tried making stone houses myself, and it never really works. The aquaduct is kinda cool, but makes some difficulties when you want to move people...
I could rate it, but i'm too lazy...

Well, I've never seen another Roman Coliseum, so, ya know, there you have it. I searched about 95% of the other Stronghold maps here and I did not find ONE other coliseum. And as for there being empty spots, that was on purpose. This is the Freebuild version, so I therefore wanted to leave some room for people to build. The invasion version map (whose bugs are still being worked out) will have those areas filled in. The map itself is complete, just still testing the invasions. A giant city seige is no small task. And one final thought: Considering this map already got 2 good ratings, I think I'm entitled to be a little bit braggy about this map.

Dougleass The city isn't bad. I'm just pointing out the bad things. I want to give the mapmakers comments about what they lack, so that they maybe can improve on their weak spots.

But i'm impressed by the information you have. And also, the colloseum looks very good. I like the idea with the bears hehe.
A tip for the aquaducts, is to put gates a little here and there. It's making it harder to move things.

Heck I'll rate it.

Playability: 5
Well...didn't really know what to say since it's a freebuild. But it was actually smart to leave room. Everyone can build their own rome. That's cool.

Balance: 4
well....freebuild... gave it a 4 cause I don't want it to drag down the score

Creativity: 4
Rome is a cool theme. Not so many has done this before.

Map Design: 3
It's good, but not breathtaking...

Story/Instructions: 5
Now this is breathtaking. Good job on finding so much information.

Additional Comments:
Well....good job. Waiting for the invasion.
