My latest submission and hours of work went into this guys. Anyway, this is a real castle, still standing too, and I've tried to adapt the design into the game.
Please rate it. This helps with my next maps.
By the way there is a story, but it's on the mission itself.....

I also suggest you check out the other versions of Caerphilly here in the downloads section.

There are several different images of the castle and it's grounds available.
This is the one I used. However, in order to make it playable, some adaptions were needed. Though the lakes were added long after the original structure was built. So with some artisic license I included the green valleys that you see in the game.

Still, have you tried UnikUnok and Jackofalltrades' maps? They follow the original ground plan with near pin-point accuracy, especially in UnikUnok's map.

Well, regardless of historical accruacy, I still think that the map deserves a download and a review. :)
