This is a reproduction of central Europe. You can choose between 7 nations:
The south is very dry, the centre very fertile. In the Alps you can find lots of stone. in Sardinia, Ireland and south Sweden are the main iron deposits.
In the Balkan Mountains is a big forest.
Italy and Spain have no oasis, but a nice position to defend because there is only one frontline.Also Britian has a very autonomous and defencive position, but not much space.
The Germans, French and Russians have a lot of space but also more frontlines.
This is my first map, so let me know if you have any suggestions of improvement!
Interesting idea for a map, I like it. Only when playing the map I noticed that the Briton doesn't build any walls nor towers... Perhaps deleting his keep and placing it again could help.
Also, I think it would be better if Spaniard was a little bit more to the east, so AI lord in that position could complete the castle. Similar thing there is with Briton, perhaps moving his position a little bit to the south would do some good. When it is like this, only human players would be able to handle those two positions. :) Other positions are fine, only the one who starts the game should keep in mind not to put an AI who builds large stronghold in Italy for example, but that position is good.
I like how you put the resources on the map.

Ye so I downloaded the map and tested the first game:
-the Spanish were led by the caliph who couldnt finish his castle.
-the British led by lionheart that didnt make any castle or walls or towers
-the Germans led by Frederick were able to make a castle and make some troops
-The Russians led by the pig werent able to make the full castle, the marsh prevented it making a hole in the castle where you could rush in and kill him.
-the Italians led by the abbot shut themselves in unable to build anything outside or send out troops which is kinda fitting xD...
-the French led by philip actually made a full castle(to my suprise) the moat was really close to the hills so I didnt thought it wouldnt work out..
-the Serbs led by me slaughtered everyone easily.
What I would add in the map:
-Add a path on that sea connecting Italy and Sardinia which would be as south as possible so that abbot can at least send out troops.
-Move that spanish castle more to the east, so that caliph-chan can make a proper castle.
-Delete some of that marsh so pig can make his castle.
-Change the serbs name to hungarians, because serbs dont live in hungary, or position the keep more properly and keep the name.
It was nice eyecandy map I loved to see troops going over the alps was really cool, if I was making Europe I would probably make an event scenario map where you had to invade countries with already made castles by myself, because Europe is just too ****ed up to make a map on (lol)

I agree with MattySAMP, although when it comes to some positions we have to admit that it is almost impossible to make a map in which all AI castles would fit, but at least those ones with smallest castles should be able to finish it (such as The Rat or Sultan Abdul).

I agree with them, but maybe this would be excellent multiplayer map. AIs are useless here.

Thank you for your good ideas!
This map was supposed to be played without AIs, i should have mentioned that ;)
I'm gonna upload an improved version of this map,
so that all of you will hopefully have lots of fun bashing some bots! :)
