I hate castle makers because there is nobody to fight with but with this map I had fun making a big castle.
This map is great at castle making since you atart with the resources all close.
This is one master piece castle, the design is great!

Wow, this is a great layout you have here.
The little instructions are there, "this is an eyecandy but it's playable, etc."
I'd love if this was an invasion map.

Because its a castle builder with no goals or invasions, this map is not really "playable" in anyway. You can sell and recruit, but its pointless unless you like to move troops around all day. You can put invasions, events, placed enemy on agressive, or lions or anything to make the castle actually play. Even one economic goal would make this more than 1.
I have a problem with towers full or archers or crossbowmen. Not a real tactical challenge, archers just mow down what comes up to the gate. Overdose on starting troops, bringing this to a high 2. At least, Give the player some room in the towers to move his created troops up.
This is where the author starts bringing in the points because the author used neutral green colored archers in the castle, under your control. That is original and looks cool.

The castle would be a great thing to defend and actually play. A big seige with arab troops attacking the player in the castle. Great design and room to build some.
Because the map is a castle builder with no goals, you are just sitting there and dont need to read anything about how to do that.
Thumbs up for the castle design. Could be a whole lot more to play on this, and it would be a high 4 with a detailed and well balance invasion for instance.
