A Small Task -Mission1

Author File Description
Lord De Vulus
File Details
Map Size: 200x200 (Small)
Difficulty: Normal
Made with version: 1
Hello and welcome to my new series of missions! (Hopefully I can take this to the end this time)

I decided to mix some real facts and history with my own (twisted) imagination.

So here is the background:
It's 1124 A.D. You are a Scottish Baron called Johan Lindenberg living on a island called Eilean Donan in the western Highlands of Scotland. You came to Scotland with Danish vikings when you were rather young, but you turned against the Danish and joined the Scottish. You came friends with a future king; Dabíd mac Maíl Choluim , or know simply known as David I of Scotland. Right now you are part of a mass invasion to England. But for now you must stay in Scotland and gather your forces.
So who is who?

Rat (orange) = Danish : Valdemar I of Denmark

Snake (yellow) = Saxons : Henry the Lion

Pig (red) = English : Henry I of England

Wolf (black) = Holy Roman Empire : Frederick I

(green) = Scottish : David I of Scotland
They are all real rulers, but most of them lived and ruled in different times, I just decided to put them all in the same era.

Have fun playing and feel free to comment and review.

Playability/Balance: 3.5
A very enjoyable and a little bit challenging eco-vasion. A lot of things must be gathered, while relatively strong invasiosn attack. A smart and careful economy management is needed, cause the building space is very limited and a fire event can destroy the whole economy (I had to restart once cause of that). The invasions were frequent and it was hard to concentrate on both the economy and defense in the same time. But after I learned that nothing happens after the last invasion, I realised that the mission is completable by using a very simple strategy. First I focused only on the invasions and trained a lot of archers. They successfulyl fended of all invasions. Then I had exposed time to gather the goods. And this was the main flaw in the scripting, which greatly affected the balance and the playability. Luckily, this problem can be solved in 2 ways:
-More, repeating events and invasions
-Or simply adding a lose timer to make the player hurry with completing the economic tasks.

Creativity: 3.5
A very creative scenario! The editor was excellently used. I liked the very limited building space and that narrow pass, it could be defended in a very effective way (see playability above). It was also a nice addition that a little village was pre-built in the editor. The only thing which really brings down the score is the scripting, a longer and better story would also boost the score. ;)

Map Design: 4
Excellent map design. I liked how you created a good-looking and natural landscape with such simple use of the editor. The isled looked very good and the little building space made me think where to place and what, since a little fire event could esily destroy a very well running economy here. The trees were very well placed and the cliffs were used well, the whole design reflected a very nice atmosphere. The resources were a bit too many, but that was the least thing, which affected the playability and balance (see above). By the way, great job! :)

Story/Instructions: 3.5
The story is not bad, it is a basic story, which sets the scene and the mood to play well, the only problem is that it's too short. Though I give a 3.5 since the download page is clear and some extra infos are given. Good job! :)
