Mountains and rivers (FB)

Author File Description
Permafrost
File Details
Map Size: 400x400 (Large)
Made with version: 1.2
Minimap:
Hi.

When i started this map, 2 things was important for me.

1- A lots of rivers with falls(i like that).
2- Not many space to place farms.

I think i reach my goal.

This map can make (i think) a good map for an economic scenario.


If you think this map is enough interesting to put a script on it and re-submit it as any others kinds of scenarios, let's go.
It's ok for me.
Please juste name me as the map designer. :)

I think that *you* should do your own scripting for the economic version of this map. You might think that you are not up to doing that but you will soon get the hang of it. Make sure there are
-some wolves and bears (to make start-up tricky);
-thin down the deer a bit;
-keep it as a place you own keep;
-set win conditions for cheese, meat, swords, armour, ale drinking, and blessing;
-provide the smallest possible start resources (wood sufficient for granary and armoury and a couple of wood-cutter huts, 4 or 5 bows) make the player gather wood to build the barracks.
- Ask in the forums about how to set a time limit on the game (Indeed ask in the forums if there is anything you need to know how to do. Other designers like share their knowledge).
Restrict the market trading so the player must make the goods. Then you need to play it, adjust the targets, play it again, finally add 5 or 10% onto the targets to make it a challenge and you will have made a playable scenario which you can release for the economic section. And when you have done that you could experiment with invasions… :-)
Sokrates Eric, your help is very welcome, but if Permafrost will really script it himself, then he's a real hero for me. :P Scripting was always a nightmare for me, and maybe that's the reason why I've never uploaded anything else than a skirmish. ;-)
(And also a reason why is my map, maybe you remember it, Al-Quarah fortress, frozen in place for two years...)
Strife 2- Not many space to place farms.

It depends on what kind of farms you're thinking about, because I see plenty of space just by looking at the minimap.

Thanks all for your comments, i really appreciate :)

For now, i know i'm not very good with the scripting part that's why i don't put any scripts on my maps.
I know with a little bit of practice i can do a good script, but there is not the real problem.

The real problems are 1- I'm not a gamer so i don't play enough to have the speed of a real gamer.
Each time i a made a script for me, it's allways
a relax script without deadline time and other thing like that.
2- Other problem, i work on too many maps a the same time..... for now i work on app. a dozen of maps.
That's the real problem, i like to create, not really to play.

Strife: I know, the map have enough space for farms, but with a script who ask for a good quantity of cheeses, ales, breads and apples, your workers may have a good run to carry stock to the granary or stock pile.
I know my map is not perfect, but i think that the player have to think before placing frams on map.

Anyway, i hope all of you who download my map
will have fun, that why i made my maps. :)

And remember, all players can modify the map for the skill of is play.
