A Lion's Ego - Richard The Lionheart's New Fortress
Posted on 09/21/09 @ 10:21 AM
Thanks for looking!
This castle resembles a lion's head when viewed from above. IF Richard The Lionheart gets time to complete it, the bizarre mass of wall can actually appear quite menacing when
viewed from the game's normal isometric perspective. Looks can be deceiving however, as the cluttered castle is full of weak spots.
If you REALLY want the castle to be 100% complete then you MUST give Richard an ally such as The Nizar, Saladin, The Wolf, The Snake, or anyone else that will DIG HIS MOAT for him because he simply WILL NEVER dig it himself!
This is by no means meant to give you a great challenge when attacking Richard; It is
functional, I suppose, and works well enough in its own right when the AI has plenty of
room to build and lots of resources to draw on. This castle does have it's share of traps,
but I mean come on; it should be obvious that it was made merely for the sake of amusement!
Richard does not hire Arabian units, and does not make crossbowmen. Therefore the defense
of this stone tribute to his own great image is left in the hands of regular archers and
a few engineers. Getting to the keep with a pack of assassins can be difficult... I guess... because of the very bizarre layout of the walls.
Please feel free to comment and share your thoughts! Thanks again!
The idea is awesome! And the castle works very well.

Your Castle is Great. The design is very unique and the lionheart defenitly looks good in this castle. The only thing bad I have to say about it is that it limits the lionhearts effectivness in combat, because he needs to much stone for his castle and falls behinde early on. Keep the great castles coming i really love the detailed designs.

Thanks for your comment! It's true the cost somewhat cripples him, but it's a design that's just more or less for fun... or if you're giving the computer a giant advantage of 40,000 Gold VS 3,000 Gold.

Hmmm. Looks good. I'll try it out and see how it goes, hopefully Richard will be a bit more interesting than a plain square/rectangle now.

Hmmm, is there anything wrong with the castle? Because Richard just isnt't building it, whatever environment he is in. It could be my mistake, of course, but I wanted to make sure.

As usual, it's my fault. Apologies for making you doubt a bit more :(.
