File Details
Map Size: 400x400 (Large)
Difficulty: Normal
Minimap:
Time:Medieval
1200-1228

You, Lord Vader, has taken refuge from your war beaten country. Here, behind you is a unknown and dangerous ocean, in front of you is a long and hot desert. You have a set up a foothold castle, well not yet a castle for you have just started your colonization of this new land. You're current location is a small oasis, to your left and right are trees, and deers, to your back is a small fertile field ideal for farming. But your supplies are low and you were only able to take enough supplies for a colonization, your wood supplies are low, but the nearby trees will do, food will hold out for a while, but your scouts notice 2 large oasis fields near by, and a large hill that may or may not contain riches. You also sit near some ruins and 2 rivers. The nearby lookout towers by the rivers and the sea will be ideal for defense. Meanwhile, the native people of this unkown land are startled of your arrival. They may attack at anytime, and how much, we do not know. Thankfully, our plea for assistance has reach surviving military units that has escaped our war torn city and are coming to help us.

P.S. This is my first map, so don't expect much, this is a 28 year war so it should take a while. The dock is just a little showoff of my engineering know how, it has a cargo ship in construction, so the map is part invasion part eye candy, well mostly invasion.

Oh well, thanks for playing(if you have), please rate it so I can know how i did.

Good map. The player doesn't has to much variety of soldiers, while the enemy on the other hand hit the jackpot but from the story line it's pretty understandable. It starts easy and reaches Extreme(For some). The River thingy and ruin's help out a lot, making it a little easier.

Balance: 4.5
The Balance is pretty good but the only reason why it is a 4.5 and not 5 is because the enemy uses every kind of troop and we barely four types. Thank god the AI was medium at first.

Creativity: 5
I'm a Role-Playing type of guy. I RP in my mind every kind of mission that looks cool and this one was the best one for RP in my case so far.

Map Design: 2
Not too much variety. Almost nothing to be honest but at least the boat was ok.

Story/Instructions: 5
Not bad. The story seem's a little interesting so I'm keeping my eyes opened for everything related to Vader. Too bad he can't wield a light saber

AZ ViTrAzhAs In my opinion, (I hope the author won't get pained) the map design is very overated, as same as the whole mission. Hatuke, please read the review guidelines.

Thank you for being reasonable; it's nothing wrong that you want to be friendly with the author (Possibly you are from the same countries), but still we have to be more-or-less fair. My apologizes to the author again: please don't take this is a fact that i don't like your map or have something against you. The ratings are meant to help the creator, reveal his strong and weak sides, give advice. It's nothing bad that you got a lower rating in one of the categories: next time you will work more on it and together create a better map or mission. Have fun creating maps!

P.S Good luck with the new mouse!

Hatuke Eh Just tried to be friendly. The actual land....well the most I think would deserve a 2. Not too much variety around this parts.

Yeah, I already know my map designing skills aren't great, mostly to that fact that my mouse isn't working right, but i'm hoping to get one with the money i get from Chinese new year to buy one, because at the moment, i'm broke.
