I've been gone a while to get a better grip of the Crusader map editor, and I now return to you with one of my better creations: Taiwan. Yep, that's right. I do indeed mean that small, hardly ever mentioned country in Asia. I've divided into halves, north and south. Though it may look well balanced, it's quite far from it. The loins prefer to attack the north player, the proximity to stone ans the amount of stone are in favour of the south player, and hunters become the hunted if you place them on this map and don't send escorts with them, because even though it's a large map the land mass is relatively small and enemy archers will pick off you hunters. Also, the wolf and a few other AI will NOT work here, he will half finish his castle and than delete all of his buildings. The other AI seem to work better, though. If they have a larger castle you may want to consider putting them in the south, I don't know why but they seem to like the southern half better and build stronger defenses.
Flanks are almost completely out of the question, you can only attack the front and one side effectively. Grassland is plentiful. Sadly, despite being a writer, I have no story to offer for this map, I offer you my humble apologies for this lacking.
I've been told more than once that it doesn't look too much like Taiwan on the minimap, but the landscaping on it is the best I've done yet. Enjoy the map.
remember if the ai has to big of a castle he will not complete or box him sself in if the gatehouse in the wrong direction this happens alot to the wolf so you have 2 test it with ai b4 you present it to the site but people with little castles like the snake rat or the sultan and even sometimes the loinheart might have an easy time with this map but if your going for an exact replica then yea its good but keep this in mind

Thank you, I did test it but I seemed to have forgotten to add the fact that The Wolf wont work here. I have found that all of the other AI will work though. But the wolf just doesn't build. Thank you again, I'll go update the description now.
