Hi guys, wanted to wish everyone at Heavengames and Stronghold Heavengames more specifically a merry Christmas with this new Castle Builder map.
Relax on the beaches of Ysarul where the grass... is green but sparse, the forests are thin, and the hills are tall. How long can you survive?
It's a very peaceful map that took me roughly 30-40 minutes to make and it's basically an experiment of sorts. I'm sure by now you know how to add invasions to a castle builder game, I believe it's F1.
A very playable map. The options a castle-builder can explore whilst playing are broad. From a small town to a magnificent fortress, every style of play has a place in this map. There are no obstructions to normal play whatsoever.
The greatest flaw and greatest strength in this map is the balance. Enormous amounts of raw resources allow for a grande industry. This is detrimental because it takes away the challenge. But is there really a challenge intended in a castle-builder?
When I started playing this map, I was happy to see a lot of creativity. Since this is a castle-builder, this is strongly coherent with the map design.
Map Design: 4
A well rounded, be it a little symmetrical, map. The transitions between different types of resources could be more fluid.
I like the idea of this map, since it leaves a lot of freedom for the player.
Additional Comments: I know because this is a castle-builder, there is not so much space for some criteria to be fulfilled. I highly recommend this entertaining map and wish to thank its maker. Thanks!
