Caerphilly Castle

Author File Description
Sir George
File Details
Map Size: 400x400 (Large)
Difficulty: Easy
I created this map for historical purposes along with several others, using eyecandy and other little tricks to make it as I wanted it to be. There is several invasions to deal with, but I am sure you can cope. :) It is a very easy map though. I have yet to find the trick to making hard maps.
Enjoy, and do comment, as this is my first submitted map.

Castlefreak well this is an obvious observation, but it has to do with the fact of varition when it comes to invasions. as in more than one place where they can attack. i see that this has one route for the enemy to travel toward the lord. well... two but this still applies

There are two signposts and two ways of entry to the main castle. (Oh wow, I am stating the obvious again!) So the multiple points of entry by the invasion forces serve as a means to harden the level?
peter2008 Well, Sir George, I've tried your map.
First of all I had to rescript it in the editor. Victory for free in the same year when the game begins is not satisfying.
Then you let invasiding troops appear monthly. They overcrowded the land but then only part of them charged towards the castle.
The trick concerning invasions consists in the balance. Do I have a bit time of build up the economy and organize some troops? Are there interludes to restructure the castle? On the other side, are the enemies troops strong enough and well mixed having a real chance to break through? Are the own forces weak enough to challenge the player's skills? - On your map you sent out lots of laddermen, which turned out useless. Spearmen might have started filling the moat. Best will be you play other invasion maps to experience yourself what is exciting and what you might want to repeat in tests. Good luck.
Some eyecandies I liked. The mill beside the waterfall is funny. The steps to the towers north-east of the keep I found interesting.

Thank you for your comments. Apparently I forgot the fundamentals! I will definitely rescript the entire thing.
I am glad you liked what I did with the map.
Dragunov Good for a first map!

Hello everyone,
I am sorry I have not scripted sooner, but I am in Japan right now, so I am nowhere near my computer! I will be getting back at the end of this month, but since school is starting I wont have that much time. I thank everyone for their patience so far, and please review my other map called The Tower. (A map based on the Tower of London, some editing needed on that too.)
Thanks again,
Sir George
