strongholder nl to be honest with you, it's bad real bad.I ain't no good map maker and i actually made only 1 real map yet but this map has no height diffrence at all. I wouldn't expect much downloads for this map.
To start things you could work on:
First of all: forests fade and don't just stop.
Second: almost evry land has height difrences (expect for area's that have been reclaimed from the sea but those area's will have a lot of dykes and water).
Third: there is nowhere on the entire earth were there is just stone and iron on large flat spaces just waiting for you to mine it.

Overall: i would start up from scratch. put the keep on a hill make the gorund have more heigt difrence use scrubs and grass instead of all land place the iron on a mountain and spread it out a bit and don't put any of the stone or iron in the castle.

thanks for commenting but couldn't you say something a little nicer then "its bad real bad" maybe change it to "You did good for a starter but here is what you can improve on"
General Gael I sugest to make a river and ford a fork and remember nowhere is flat overall a good begining map

My Regards General.N.Gael
wallaberto Strongholder is just spilling his guts there. If that is what he thinks than the most of the people who are looking at this map will probably think the same. it is hard but Strongholder is right ... it is a bad map and he gave you some good advice.

Keep up the spirit, listen to advices and maybe check the designpage on this website and last but certainly not least: check out the maps other people made especially those with high ratings.

Lord Ako Hi Slimmyjimmy, I don't know if you had noticed, but I posted a response to your review of my map.
Lord Karpathea Ok, here's the thing. In a freebuild, DO NOT pre-place a castle, unless it's like a giant city already built (i.e. Rome). A free build is for the player to build and customize a castle however THEY want. In this type of map, the main focus should be on MAP DESIGN.

i like making the castles. Its fun. Pre built castles are ausome.
Lord Karpathea Then submit invasion or seige maps. Freebuild > Free building. ;)
Dembones8 This was my first editing problem one the stone and iron are to close and there pretty wedged up
