Author File Description
File Details
Map Size: 400x400 (Large)
Number of Players: 8
Balance: Balanced
Difficulty: Normal
Made with version: 1.2


This is an eight player map, all of it on low ground, enough resources for everyone who's willing to share, plenty of wood and more than enough farm land. Four sites spread out across the top of the map and four more across the bottom, more than enough room to build.

I made this map in version 1.2, but it plays fine in Extreme, no outposts but you do get the power bar, so if you want lots of troops, play in Extreme.

gold99 I was intented to make a map similar to this myself. I may try 2v2v2v2 with AI.
Duc Vautour Looks really good from the minimap :). Definetly going to download and playtested it. I gave you a review when i'm done with that :). Keep up the good work!
EaglePrince Excellent map!

I tried it even in multiplayer, although those were games against AI lords.

I would like to play a multiplayer game on this map against human lord though. :)

The map is flat, so it's perfect for multiplayer and everyone can focus on building his economy, while all parts of it look so natural - it's really enjoying to play a map like this.

Also, positions of castle keep are great - none of those is too close to another, and if human players would want to play this map online, they could choose any team settings they want! 1v1, 1v2, 2v2, 3v2, 3v3... anything! Only 4v4 or 4v3 might not be that great, but Crusader maps are simply too small for 4v4 games in which all could build their castle and not being able to aim with mangonels at each other.

You did a great job!
Duc Vautour Ok i already play test your map and here is what i've seen so far :

I test your map with me and the caliph vs 4 emirs without any advantages for both sides. I putb2 emir on the bottom left corner, i notice that one of the emir build his largest variant of his castle and he did poorly(he was the one who died first killed by Caliph). His economy are start collapsing because he cant build his castle perfectly because there are some obstacle. But the other emir is doing fine, because he build the smallest variant of his castle. I suggest you to make some space on the bottom left side so it was more suitable for the ai who builds large castle

Thanks a lot for the great comments.

Sorry if there is a bit of a misunderstanding, this map is meant for online play, it is restricted in resources and low ground to help keep players from spamming to much.

I did just now play the map and put 2 Emirs in the SW corner of the map and both Emirs built their largest castles, the Emir to the west did not have enough room for one extended look out tower, but they both worked fine, the AIs can have trouble on this map because of the lack of resources though.

EaglePrince I look forward to a game on this map one day, we should setup a game at strongholdnations when you have time.
EaglePrince I would setup a date for the gaming event at Stronghold Nation as soon as I have enough time.

For now I decided to uninstall GameRanger. That will be for my best, and it will stay that way for one or two weeks maybe...
I know I can't play now, but when I have it, I come to GameRanger when I get tired of work to make a short break, and then I stay there more than I should have.

This way I cannot simply login to GameRanger at least. :)
