Journey to the sea

Author File Description
Duc Timothy
File Details
Map Size: 400x400 (Large)
Number of Players: 7
Balance: Unbalanced
Difficulty: Normal
Minimap:
OK, I know already I'm not going to win Map of the Week or anything like that. But I do know that the only way to seriously improve is to get constructive criticism on it. This map is my best to date; please give me some tips on improvement, and I'll work on my skills.

Description: During your travels through Arabia, your scouts report that a nearby region is ideal for settlement. Tired from travel, your people convince you to choose a settlement. But where? On the fertile but resource-barren riverbanks? Or in the desert by an oasis, where water allows for scant food -- and wildlife? Or will you settle on the highlands, where there truly is no food but an abundance of resources? Or will you be bold enough to settle on the sandy beach? And most importantly: Who else has the same idea?

Cool. As long as no-one offends me personally, please feel free to really rip into this one. The more advice I get the better. :)

Fun to play multiplayer. Because all guys on multiplayer are strong. But playing with computer opponenets. They will be week, very week. Map is unbalanced....

Balance: 3
.... that makes it hard. Too hard for computer guys. If you play multiplayer there isn't problems - all guys are economic masters. But sheriff or caliph are only computer lord with iron brains!

Creativity: 5
I like this map's creativity. Mountains with oasis, grass... This map is original. I don't know map like this...

Map Design: 3
Not very beatiful bro. Looks like.. hmmm.. there isn't eyecandy. Put some bridges, watertowers... And minimap looks bland. Need to improve, I think!

Story/Instructions: 5
Good story. It's hard to write stories for skirmishes. So 5 is honest rating.

Bal.: Good balance, its pretty hard to play for some AI's.

Crea.: It's not the best idea, but its still very nice :)

Wow. I never expected to get such high ratings. And this was my first true attempt at a map! Thanks, you guys. :)

Oh, I know I should have eye candy. I'm not able to do very much for eye candy just yet, I'm really practicing on it. I'll get to work on that and see about an idea for another map. :)

Yeah, the AI doesn't know what to do. I found that in playtests, there was no hope for any AI on the highlands (unless it was the Sultan, but we all know how hard it is to beat him... not at all). In the oasis... well, the preset castles ruin the AI there. Really the only place the AI has hope is a riverbank or the coast, but even then the preset castles are the undoing of the AI.

So yeah, no AI support. But if you say it's a good MP map I'm happy. :)
