The Joy of Mapmaking



Today I watched an episode of "The Joy of Painting", and as usual Bob Ross was doing what he does best - create a detailed painting in just a half hour! So I though, could I do a reasonably detailed skirmish map in a half hour too? Well, it took about 32.5 minutes....almost haha!

This video also showcases how to easily and automatically make some nice looking ruins using towers and mangonels.

-----------------------------------------------------------------

Play skirmish map as either 2 on 1, or a FFA. Enjoy!

Playability: 4
Overall, the map was one of the best 3 player maps ive ever played. With that in mind, the A.I. tends to build their stone/iron mines away from their castles instead of on the deposits nearest them. otherwise, a very good map in playability.

Balance: 4.5
This map is a very good definition of a "handicapped" map, or a 2 on 1. It seemed that each side had about the same oasis. I thought that the right should have more, so i only took off 0.5 for that.

This is a very cool map. Its hard to belive you did it in 32 minutes. I like the ruins alot, i will use your methods for my future maps if i need to make ruins, and for that, i thank you

Map Design: 4.5
This was a original design, but it looks like an earlier map you have done, so I only took off 0.5 for that.

Great background as to your inspiration. R.I.P. Bob Ross
