Valley Of Death III

Author File Description
Greek_Crusader
File Details
Map Size: 400x400 (Large)
Number of Players: 4
Balance: Unbalanced
Difficulty: Normal
Minimap:
There is no story for my map.perhaps there would be one if it was an "invasion" type.So ill just describe it a little bit.the map (as all my maps) was designed to best combine two things:

1.playability (i dont even know if that's the right word) meaning that space,player resources and generaly the terrain makes the game plesant and easy to build your castle.

2.Natural landscape, make the landscape look as much more natural as possible.

so i think this map has just too much work.It took me 9 hours to build. let me know what you think about it.

Playability: 4
This is an extremely playable map. Plenty of resources make it easy to get a good stronghold and economy up and running.

Balance: 5
I played a 2v2 with The Snake & I in the North, up against Frederick & Richard in the South. Although I was close to the Snake I was still able to get my stronghold running, but had to compete with Snake for some of the food resources. The opposition had no such trouble, setting up both their stronghold's quite quickly.

Creativity: 4
A rather original map i think, I've not come across a Skirmish map similar to it. I will probably use it a few times.

Map Design: 4
A rugged terrain that looks great onthe mini-map. I think what let's it down slightly is that during the shaping of the landscape some of the resources, stone especially seem to have been split on different levels, this looks rather unnatural but is really only a minor design fault. During my game I didn't find any places that were inaccessible.

Story/Instructions: 3
No Story. Do you need one on a Skirmish map? I don't think it is necessary, but some people seem to think it is. Hence my middle of the road score of 3.

Additional Comments:
If your looking for a fun Skirmish map then this could provide some hours of enjoyment.
