Beaumaris Castle

Author File Description
File Details
Map Size: 400x400 (Large)
Difficulty: Normal
It's been forever since I uploaded a map, and granted, I don't think that this one is that amazing, but I had a blast making it. Everyone should make historical castles.

In this map, I have tried to bring back the absolute brilliancy (is that a word?) of the original stronghold siege maps. Seriously, try on of them on hard as attacker, they are dumb fun. And, they work both ways, not like some where you can only be the attacker or defender.

Enough with the talking, let's get a screen shot.

If you happen to review this map, please be lenient on the landscape. If you search pictures of the map you get conflicting results, and only the castle. So I kinda just improvised the landscape.

Timballisto Hey! I remember this castle from Castles II: Siege and Conquest!
Fintrollx Looks great but i think you should upload a minimap too :)
peter2008 This castle looks both proud and cosy, I just wanna conquer it. Like to watch the diagonal outer walls.

Glad you liked the map guys. Would anyone mind reviewing it? :)

peter2008 Hi, now I've played your map and took both sides. After having become familiar with the special weaknesses of the installation I could survive as defender on very hard. Fighting for the gates is great. Sent pikemen outside to stop the rams, took them in again to throw oil on charging maces. Then opened the gate again to get more ranked units fight the masses of hostile marksmen. Few braziers on the walls, so some pitch ditches came out off reach for the archers.
Attacking the big distances also rock. The AI acted well in delaying my progress. In the inner ward I sacrified my knights to clear the way and get some projectiles. But could beat the crew only on normal.
You made a great job. Many things are tricky (units standing idle) and not-just-simple (ditches spread somehow arbitrary, not along the walls or shortest paths).
Dembones8 woah!
Make more maps!

Thanks for the comments guys, makes it worth it :)

Anyone mind writing a short review?
Lord_of_Hell After I played this enjoyable map I decided to write-up my scores. Didn't try on all levels but here's the scores:
[ TL = troops lost; S= Score]
All from the first tries.

Easy: 24% TL; S 7600
Easy2: 20% TL; S 8000

Normal:32% TL; S 11800
Hard: 37% TL; S 16300
Very H:58% TL; S 19200

Easy: 57% TL; S4300
Normal: (Forgot to note the score but I think it was about ~80%TL)

On hard/very hard I didn't manage to beat it. So, did anyone else made better scores?
