I gave this freebuild a go, and it turned out to be quite enjoyable, when I played it on the right game. It's a crusader map in the regular stronghold section. I personally don't let that affect my ratings, but I thought I'd let you know. I've always been a fan of the Elder Scrolls series, and this map is a fine addition to this site.
The one issue I had was balance. When I sent in an invasion, (F1 in the editor) the narrow walkway leading to the city hindered the progress of the enemy soldiers. This lead to a "lazy army" situation. The thing about the SH AI is that if they don't have a wide enough approach path, or a clear path to the keep, they'll just stand around doing nothing. They'll come in in small waves that are easy to pick off.
Other than that, a really great map. I liked having the room to build the city however I wanted. Good depiction of the city, very accurate. There wasn't much of a story or description, but it's a freebuild so who really cares? Not me. Well, great job and keep designing.
