A castle set for the pig, the animal lord that just uses crossbowman and maceman, builds a lot of diaries and always likes
a fight.

As I always do, I stayed as near as possible to the ai's personality, although I made a little bot of an exception here,
since I often gave him more workshops than his standart castles. I featured his big towers surrounded by high wall, and his
complete castle surrounded by a thin wall. Also I gave him a "big crossbow" aka ballista on his towers, since I thought that
this will suit perfectly to his crossbowman.

Rate it, leave suggestions and let me know some improvements / mistakes.
Have fun sieging the pig (can really be hard some times).
If you found a bug or something, let me know.
Lord Psyom


Next will be of course the big bad wolf (or if you installed the adolf hitler mod him). His castle will be BIG,
always or often focused on defending the front, and a lot of wall. The industry will (as his castles do) not
have much economy, I will not change that a lot. Maybe a little bit, but not much.

EaglePrince This one castle we can see from the link does look interesting. Although I like changing the character of the AI lord, I do like how you gave him ballistae on his square towers, and how you gave him some more gatehouses for better economy efficiency... I believe these changes will help our friend Pig a lot.

Still, it seems like I do see one downside of his castle, which he wouldn't normally have. He appears not to have any wells? Normally he does have those, and he is pretty efficient when it comes to putting down the fire. Also, it seems like you put double layer of small wall there near the stone keep. I would prefer if it was single layer.

To sum everything up, you did a great job, I like how you didn't leave the main idea of his castles, how you gave him ballistae, but if he doesn't have any wells, that might be a serious problem to Pig. Fire would cause him more problem that it would normally do.

It may also be better we could see all of his eight castles within the description, I am sure you would have more downloads then. Whenever you have something you can be proud of, show us a picture, and this is one of those things you can be proud of. :)

PS: I do hope you could find some time to add those wells into his castle as well, but I since you said that you gave him more workshop, it might be the case that you sacrificed those wells for faster weapon production? I mean, I do realize that you have a limited population there - he will always build one same number of diary farms, so giving him larger population than he would normally have could cause some problems maybe.

He has 3 wells, they are hidden behind the walls in the pic though. Yeah I know, I did not know how to add pics at that time. And there are more pigs in the archive you download. And this is not the best castle, just one of them I chose by random. I always gave the pig 2 (that is what he uses mostly) and 4 wells.

Thank you for commentating.

*not pig2 , it should be: "between 2 and 4"

EaglePrince In that case, the castle is perfect. :)

Hi eagle,
a castle can not be perfect, especially if youmake one for the ai. I would suggest you to rate it, if you really think it is perfect, although I would rate them myself 4-4.5. But thank you. And again, if you have the time some day, I would love to hear you thoughts after some play-testing.

Lord Psycom
EaglePrince To give a rating I would need to see all other castles, which is not the case, as I don't have enough time to try and see all of them in the game.


But from this castle, you did it mostly well - except that double-layered small wall.

Also, in that case, I would make it official - write a review, give you rating, and wait until ericgolf approves it. :) Also, in that case I can say for sure that I wouldn't give 5.0 to you, and that would be because: 3 is good, 4 is very good, and 5 is excellent.
File Author
Isn't it like this: 0 = worst, 1 = bad, 2 = normal, 3 = good, 4 = better, 5 = really good.
Well, I would never rate these castles myself 5 as I already mentioned. Maybe 4-4.5 as highest. But 3.0 as minimum.

Lord Psycom.
EaglePrince To rate them, I would first need to see them. :)

Speaking about ratings, here is the official answer to that question:

1 and 2 are not good, those are bellow average.

File Author
Why do you think pig1 and 2 are under average? :/
EaglePrince Not pigs, I only meant on ratings in general. :) Rating 1 and rating 2 are below average, while rating 3 is moderate / good.

Speaking about pig's, I haven't seen their castles yet. Images could help, of course.
File Author
Then download it, in the archive are all pics. Seriously, nowadays all pc's hard discs are bigger than 50gb normally. 5.45 mb can not hurt.
