The Great Battle Map Pack

Author File Description
Lord William1234
File Details
Map Size: 400x400 (Large)
Number of Players: 4
Balance: Balanced
Difficulty: Hard
This is a map pack of 6 different maps that I created, mainly for use in matches with other human players. Most of the maps will provide you with a HUGE amount of resources, and 4 of the 6 gives the player an alternate color. #2 is blue, #3 is yellow, #4 is light blue, and #5 is black. #1 has more resources than the other maps, but gives you access to more resources. #6 gives each player a pre-set castle, though it is totally unbalanced. The ai's work pretty well with them also. No resources are on that map, though, so it is recommended that you start with 40,000 gold. Unless, of course, you are playing with an ai.

Good luck, and have fun!

UPDATE: I have included another great battle map, and the minimap from the first one. The ais do not work that well with this map, as everyone is packed together. I hope that you enjoy it as well!

I apologize for the lack of a minimap for each individual map, as I tried to include it here in the post, but I can't seem to do it. However, as mentioned above, the minimaps for each map is included in the zip file.

whoops, sorry, I had included images of the files in the zip file, but they weren't included in the post. I will update it and try to include the minimaps this time...
Map Design2.5
Playability: 3
Even though I tend to play rugged,realistic landscapes more often than not I will sometimes have the urge to have a huge ultramoney grudgematch against the best enemies and I found this map pack of yours to be well suitable for a good long game (a challenge too)
but on a couple of maps I had some trouble with defending the quarries and farms but that adds more fun to a level.I found no glitches or bugs and the ai worked perfectly on all maps but the barren one where I had to play lionhearts so that they would buy food for their people instead of starving them and not being able to make men when I attacked.

Balance: 4.5
Most of the maps had near perfect balance which was very fun and a good diversion from having to buy iron,wood etc.

Creativity: 3
The maps were different enough to score a 3 for you from me but the complete balance in everything made it a little bit similar to others,however it was still fun enough for me to play 3 times in 4 days :.)

Map Design: 2.5
Every scenario was in total balance with nearly no difference in the terrain but they were well designed enough to entice me to replay this map pack,good work.

Story/Instructions: 2.5
Nice instructions,I like how the description got right to the point and immediately gave me a good overview of the settings of the maps.

Additional Comments:
one of the better map packs and you are doing a great job in your recent maps and they keep getting better every time you do them.I recommend this map pack to anybody else and say that it is worth the download.

Thank you for the review, I am happy that you enjoyed the maps. The main reason that I created these maps is because my friend prefers maps where you have all the resources, or at least a large amount of them, available to him, and also because I was able to get the first player a different color: he was getting sick of being red all the time. Once again, thank you for the review (I still can't believe that this map pack got this many downloads).
Venomrider Well you have real talent as a mapmaker and I have to say your maps have never left me bored or wishing I had made a better choice as I am too busy doing my favorite game chore:large treduchet seiges :.)...........I am making a stronghold or maybe crusader invasion and will use a few of the landscaping tricks that you used for your maps.

AIEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!! OVER 400 DOWNLOADS!!! *Passes out on the floor and doesn't get up until Extreme arrives*...*whew*, glad I got that over with! Anyway, I'm still amazed at how many people are downloading this map pack, considering it didn't get over a 4.0.
