I agree, there's no need to flood the downloads section with new maps that have a low quality. I suggest you take more time and create fewer, very high quality maps. You obviously have the talent.

Yes really strange, one time you make some superb map and on the other day some 10 min map :( As Synyster said, you have the potential, it is up to you to use it at it's maximum. And stop with these names on finish or whatever it is :p

I would have liked to send an email regarding this, however I guess here will have to do. Makiavelli, I suggest you try more on your maps. It wont be good when each of the maps receive the same messages telling you to try harder, and to be frank, I am, as well as others I presume, getting fed up with the lack of response by your pertaining to your map.
We suggest you focus on quality not quantity; that means actually spending some time on the map and the story. And you rather spend your time making more maps that are hardly better than the first.
If you take some recent members. Fintrollx, for instance, began much the same as you have, with posting frequent maps, with no storyline, and we berated, as politely as possible (with the moderators editing was not acceptable), suggesting he change his outlook, and go pro-quality, and not pro-quantity. And he went well, and has started to produce some nice looking maps.
We are not here just to randomly pick on the new members of the community, we are here to help people become better at map-making and to enjoy the community atmosphere of the heaven-games forums.
I almost find it rude myself to have our suggestions thrown back into our faces as you continue to post maps that have taken as much time as it takes me to type this message; not long, and requiring little thought previous to making it.
I wonder if you'll even read this.

This mission turns out really challenging. In the beginning you can choose wether to take the military or economic way, i.e. hire mercenaries (whom you are forced to use) or buy (more) food and wood. I first concentrated on defence, with horse archers playing off their mobility against Arab invaders. But what, when Richards well-armoured troops arrived?
After the restart I concentrated on constantly developping a strong eco (well, it's an eco game) with some gold left for troops as side effect.
A circle of swamp around a hill formation does not look nice and in detail somehow artificial. But during the game I was thankful for every tile I could place another pitch rig upon.
The game keeps being action-loaded until one reaches the requests. Well done.

As mentioned the map has error:
- unaccessable stockspile;
- iron with no use;
and annoying invasions :)
Food problem has been solved by moving a granary close to green plain/
