Hey everyone
This is my 2nd map submitted by Dragol...
This map is another 2v2 map that is, in a way, an updated version of the first map I made.
Story is in the game info once again.

Please comment on what you think and what I need to improve for my next map.

I hope you enjoy this map as much as I did making it!

I would also like to thank Pat Dark Knight for his highly accurate Grid map that helped me make the middle circle of my map.

Also appologies to Von Kamstra for having the same name as his map i did not realise there was another map and i didnt copy the name on purpose i guess i should have checked first if the name was taken :(

Playability: 4
The map was nice, you have everything you need to create a booming town. I think you went a little overboard on the resources though, you should have only left the resources on the hill the other ones should be deleted. Also less Oasis. The map was pretty enjoyable.

Balance: 3.5
Every player is fairly balanced out. However some players are closer to resources and have more trees, most noticeable would be the top left player. This map would be unsuitable for online play. But I think its close enough for AI.

Creativity: 2.5
This has been done before. Also there is no story. You need to come up with a creative story and make youre map different than others even if the difference is small.

Map Design: 3
The map when looked at as a whole looks very well done. But there are large patches of pure scrub that looked like you put it there because you didnt know what else to put. Its very rare in the real world that grass is the same thickness all around so mix in youre scrub with different grasses. There were few boulders or rocks, nothing that sticks out. The vegetation on the hill looks a little weird as well.

Story/Instructions: 2
Please add a story, if this wasnt a skirmish it would have been a 1.5 but its hard to come up with a story for a skirmish so I cut you some slack.

Additional Comments:Good points: Good gameplay, plenty of space, rivers looked good and trees were placed well. Bad Points: Terrain is sometimes big plots of scrub, No Story, Too much resources.

Keep designing, the map was overall very good but there is no story!

Von Kamstra Nice map, I would like to point out, however, that I have a map named Twin Rivers submitted in 2004. Your map is certainly different from mine. I am not sure what the policy is about maps with the same name?

Hmm yeah I dont know...
Im sure this thing happens alot though..
i guess if the maps greatly vary then there shouldent be too much of a problem.. anyway if anything is wrong with hacing the same name please comment
