Desert Storm

Author File Description

Map Size: 400x400 (Large)
Number of Players: 6
Balance: Balanced
Difficulty: Hard
Minimap:
Part 3 of 3:

A storm is brewing between clans, from the valleys up to the hills. Different terrains have different advantages, as your scouts have reported. Chose and found your castle quickly and precisely in order to become the conqueror of these lands. You might need to allie yourself, but can you make it alone? Everything is on the line, and the futur - your futur - depends on your choices. Will you make it out alive?

This map can be played in many different ways:
- 2 vs 2 vs 2
- 2 (center keeps) vs all
- free-for-all*

It has also two different difficulties, depending on where you decide to play: medium for players on the higher land, and hard for the two players that are in the 'valley', since they can be attacked on two sides

*I would suggest that you team up the two players at the center together, since they are closer together, which would really be hell if they were against each other

This map is not intended to be used with all the AIs. It is designed for multiplayer (human vs. human), although SOME AIs will work with this map.

This map has taken me roughly 8 hours to make, and I find that it is one of my best maps; incorporating many different elements to make the most natural-looking map. It may not be the best, but it is what I have dreamed of doing for so long. This map has opened me into a new type of skirmish map. I hope that you all enjoy this map as much as me. I hope you agree with me that this map is a good map to end a 3-part skirmish crusade.

Part 2:Desert Siege
Part 3:Desert Storm

Good Gaming,

Fun to play. You see.... i love it. I prefer alone against arabic enemy!!

Balance: 5
You balance it. One is close but less, one is far but many. It's realistic. But out of topic. I'll talk about it in map design

Played with emir, nizar, and calif. All against all. Pretty good match up with me fighting the emir the whole time just to keep him off the iron.

Balance: 5
I like the balance and spacing between resources. Its looks like alot, but because you have to defend the areas its not.

Creativity: 5
Good map that flows like some kind of running battle because of the high ground and the way the comps attack. Good.

Map Design: 5
No lock ups, mess ups, foul ups, or plain ole screw ups either on this map! The desert storm is a good title. The trees were well done.

Story/Instructions: 4
Not enough for a 5

Thumbs Up from me and may all your maps be good ones (4.4 and ups!)
