Strife Sorry if I'm being blunt, but I'm just pointing out the flaws. I realize that this is your first Stronghold map, but I don't want to say "Good job!" as if you're a child who's demanding the respect of his/her parents.

Spend some more time with the landscape please. Rivers don't magically rise up on bumps. Use the land equallizer to make more reallistic hills. There are land blotches that randomly appear as a shape of a square in the sea. Don't use sand only, add a few details, like bushes and rocks.
Because you didn't leave more space, I couldn't build more stockpiles. You put the buildings in a cramped section, it would really be better if you put some outside of the castle. I had to delete my granary and food producing buildings because of the space. The market's completely useless, eh?
It wasn't necessary to place people in areas that the Snake wouldn't attack.
Did you playtest this map? I'm just wondering.

By the way, this isn't a 400x400 map, please fill in the right description details.

peter2008 Hi Bnissan, I really like many things of your map, beginning from the overall look.
What made me stopped playing was a lag caused by the following scripting.
Invasions (60) x2 months. Did you playtest this? I don't mind shooting many guys but the game moans about units spamming. If you fix this, I'll play again.

Thank you for your comment.

Firstly about the ladscape and the rivers, when i was puting the finishing touches(some hills),part of that must have must disturbed the river because the last thing i did before posting i just checked on the settings.

The lack of space, that was there just to make the mission harder.

And, yes i did playtest the map but just before i put in the hills that ruined the flow of the river.

Since you unintentionally playtested the map i will update.

PS: Did you complete the mission?

Unit spaming?
When i played the map it was perfect.

Only that i didn't win.


And the point of this map was to get all the objectives before the invasion.

peter2008 Ok, won the map by completely rebuilding the castle.
Massacred the bad guys at the sign post as they arrived. Otherwise, with several walls blocking the way to the keep and no buildings to smash, most of them would stand around there and fill the sprite limit.

The next map i will be making is in stronghold 2.
(just saying)

This map will probably take a long time since i will check for bugs and other stuff.

I don't know if any of you 'care' or not but I didn't have enough time to make the next map. But I'm gonna start making Stronghold 2 mods (A.I's). Obviously, starting with Edwin.
