-6- Glorious!

Author File Description
ognjenzr Hi guys,since Stronghold crusader 2 sucks,i decided to continue on with my AIV series!

I present to you the Glorious Saladin,the mighty beard guy who can be a pain in the ass! And this 8 castles i have made form him will do just that! He will be rich,tough and annoying,he will herass you,resist and keep on building! Hes a hard nut to crack,believe me.
This has to be the hardest set i have made so far,because Saladin can man his towers,lit his pitch,destroy your siege engines... i charged him with 100 pikemen,10 got to the moat??? Love playing against him.

About the designs:Saladin is an Arab lord,but i stayed close to his style which is very close to the Crusader lords,it's square,with big towers and strong gates...Also i tried making it realistic,meaning that i wanted it to look like a city/settlement,to have a "real" feeling,vibrant...
all in all Arabic looking... :D

All of the castles i make are made to start with 8000 gold,but he does well with 2000 too... Looking forward in making more castles for you guys!

Here are the images!

As always,leave a comment/bug/suggestion/money below.... XD

LordPsycom in some castles there are a lot of buildings outside his castle. You could improve that, although if you want to stay as near as possible at his personality, it is good. Good economy, but you could add some wall around the towers, a few catapult shots and boom.
Duc Vautour i really really LOVE the design of the first and second castle. It really fits Saladin ai personality. But in castle 1, you puts a lot of workshop in front of his castle and its not a wise decision...
Landari Well somce castles need more/some moat on specific sides,

saladins defence tactic can be pitch, oil moat killing pits on the side where those castles are manned with archers, and firethrowers + archers on those sides without moats

i kinda miss some fire thorwers in the picture too or they are too tiny on the picture XD

Duc Vautour @Landari Saladin did not use any kind of traps. His defence tactic is only moat at the front, siege enggines, archers, firethrowers and his economic prowess.

On a side note, i don't know if you guys notice this or not but pitch are only used by the bad lords(Caliph, Wolf, Sheriffs, Abott(sometimes) and Wazir)
Landari @Duc , I just mentioned those defence options a saladin can use.

secondly if you have noticed in his original castles, those towers surrounded with moat only have arrabian archers on top, those without have extra fire thorwers (oil ???)
it kinda belongs to his "personalily"

I didn't want this pack to be "unbeatable" or anything like that... my castles try to be natural,beautiful,with a good economy and difference between styles.I made some castles easier to siege on purpose,i didn't want them to all look alike...

Towers are meant to be taken down,most have a wall in front of them,some don't but that's the point...

the same goes for the moat,i made this pack to be a complete replacement for the original ones,and i try to make them as different as possible...

LordPsycom well okay ;). could you guys also look up my sheriff and his town aiv? would be very nice. btw, I am making a 8 aiv castle protect, 8 aiv's for every ai lord. atm I made the rat, snake is in progress.
Lord Psycom
Duc Vautour @Landari i am really sorry that i missread some words -_-

On a side note, could you guys the ai modders fix one of the Wazir castle? I just notice that if he builds one of his castle that took a shape of a rhombus with 4 towers and 2 gatehouses, he will never finish it because he ran out of food and lacking of wood to build a mill and stuffs if he starts with 2000 gold. And if its not too much, could you guys do Emperor Frederick? Most of his original castle design are ok, but if his enggineer guild are located outside and the enemy manages to destroy it, he will almost always never rebuilds it
LordPsycom @Duc Votour. I will do frederick, but I can not promise much, I don't know much about him. could take a while though, as this website updates very uncommonly (every 4-7 days) and I have to do it first. ty for your suggestion though.

Lord Psycom
Duc Vautour @LordPsycom sweet! There is nothing wrong with him actually. Its just he trains his troops(especially swordsmen) too slow. He only build like 1 workshop for each type of weapon and since he keeps recruiting knights its slow's down his swordsmen production. If only he made swordsmen as much as the wolf, he can be really dangerous considering his constant catapult train and he sieges with 4-6 trebuchet
