This castle is seen on loadingscreen where four guys stand next to crusader flag and behind them is pretty battle. Map not hard, minimal strategy is needed.
Victory conditions: Survive invasion.
Starting year: 1042
Lose conditions: Lord killed.
Hints: Next to the castle there is cathedral with monks for extra defense.
Take archers closer to battle. Use engineers with pot. On square tower there is unmounted mangonel, mount them with given men. Try to destroy battering ram first.
I updated the incorrect towers and made more balance.
heh...it's one of mine first maps, and cmon man! its plain desert :D

yeah... good job for a first map :) and I gotta tell you that even the desert isn't so plain :D if you got Google Earth and you look at the Sahara desert you almost won't see only sand without any shrubs... Personally I make the terrain of the maps like this - I close my eyes and I start chaotically to make wildlife all over the map... also adding small rocks, stones and iron on the map will be a beautiful effect, too... In fact I don't have right to judge this map, because my first map didn't had much difference from this :D keep designing and thanks for sharing!
