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.
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.
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
