7AI castle by gtafbi

Author File Description
Lord Gtafbi
File Details
Map Size: 400x400 (Large)
Number of Players: 2
Balance: Unbalanced
Difficulty: Hard
Made with version: 1.2.1-E
This is a mod for stronghold crusader extreme, that has 7AI lords cooperating to build a single massive castle,
or 6AI lords if played as a two player coop mp game.

The castle features a thick "wall" of square towers, with great firing angles, a deep pitch ditch, lots of storage space which makes destruction of the castle require prolonged bombardment with significant firepower. The AI lords will also sally forth with a lot of units in the event of a siege.

Internally the castle has an inner moat that adds an extra obstacle to overcome if the towers are breached, which also doubles as a boost to the weapon production of the weapon makers inside the castle, by shortening the paths taken by them. The inner core is also well compartmented to prevent the spread of fire.

The castle has a total of 5 gatehouses that are located quite deep inside the castle, these act as the only access points to the "walls"/towers, which makes the task of getting on top of the "walls"/towers to an attacker quite hard.

This mod was in part inspired by similar multiple AI in one castle designs like:
-4Brothers-Attack by qtlilkeg
-4 Character Castle mod by krarilotus

when playing on the 7AI plateau map:
have richard at the top, marshal at the bottom,
phillip to the left, frederick to the right,
caliph in the middle, sheriff to the top left and wolf to the bottom right.

when playing on the 6AI castle MP map simply leave out caliph.

recommended game settings:
normal game human:AI 2k:2k, 2k:4k, 2k:8k.
death match human:AI 10k:10k, 20k:7k.

problems can occur with castle construction on deathmatch with higher resource settings for the AI than 10k, as well as with crusader games.
