Lord Karpathea Alrighty...the thing is, about 99% of mapmakers can't produce maps this quickly and have them have much quality. Sorry to say, but you are one of those 99%. Your maps are...well...below average. They look like they were slapped together in less than a couple hours. Not to mention you released four at once. That usually means that not a lot of time was spent on them. As you said yourself on your third map, you did them very quickly. My advice?

Slow down, friend. This site's not going anywhere. ;) Take some time on each one. A day at LEAST. Work on more realistic terrain, or at least terrain that is less blocky (or wasn't obviously made with only the largest size setting). My guess is that you have as much potential here as anyone else, but your haste is unfortunately wasting it. Maps can be turned out in the blink of an eye. GOOD maps require time and dedication.

At first, I would work more on perfecting your style rather than making actual maps. Practice maps filled with nothing but experimentation can do wonders for a beginner (and some of us vets, too. ;) ). Keep at it and I have no doubt you and the rest of the community will see profound improvement. Keep designing!

What? I thought no one plays crusader anymore..
Eaogrim I agree this map is much like your others, Rushed with bad quality, people still play crusader, as you can see with people regularly adding maps to this site, and although alot of people have left crusader, there are still people around making good maps and there always will be. Just take all advice given to you and you'll succeed.
Lord Karpathea Aye. If anything, it's Stronghold 1 that died. Which makes me really sad because that's my favorite of the series. Well. Thus far, anyway. Haven't played 3 or Crusader 2 yet.
