This map sees the end of our freebuild trilogy. While priority is with releasing the second of the series, we've already made huge progress with the third map. Not much to say as of yet but comments and more importantly suggestions are most welcome.
thanks for all the support thus far,
WL_D

Nice map WL_D! What are you planning to do with the NW area. It seems kinda bare at the moment.

*looking at the minimap/pic drooling* i'm sure i've said this before about you guys... how in the world do you find the time and patience to create such detail in this hectic world!?

Was this not the map you were working on for the last competition?

It certainly looks grand altogether I must say!
Still struggling to see the end result but just as exited all the same

So far so plain.

Can I expect a moat river?

If you own it, the chances are you will abandon it and go back to crusader. I did.

Or he could love it and never play crusader again.

I happily use both crusader and SH1, the chances that you will like it are just as great,

...subin what have i told you about turning people off SH1

Warlord_Designs simply do not make bad maps! An incredible landscape once again, gentlemen, even in this unfinished state! I'd love to see a really taxing economic scenario from you two, for what it's worth - maybe with a time limit involved?

I still can't get over that landscape...

thanks mate

As for a hard senario its a good idea, we havent done one in quite some time. I'd really like to get these freebuilds out but perhaps I can force Alexus to work on our other project, should put a tick near your suggestions

Really nice, its certainly going to be another great map

i hope that this time there will be a small corner spot for miniature castle builders like me(here we go again ). just make a huge nice looking map, and i will build a castle on the tinyiest least fancy looking place with almost no building space. lets see if i can build a castle on only 1/8 or 1/16 of the map.

(i smell a challenge in the air)

It looks just as the First one and the screenshots you have posted. Truly masterful.

thanks mate, nice to know it looks like the first one thats what i'm aiming for with the series - similarity.

wish i had more to say but we're still working on 'the ourea 2'. I wasnt happy with a few things and i never like to rush Alexus for a story. Cant be too far away now and when its released i'll post a new set of pictures for this map

Well, if you were looking for similarity I'd agree that you got it. I find it funny though, because I never actually DL'd any of these, so I don't know any of the stories, so I'm just imagining these people who are wondering around in different mountain areas going like this:

"Well how about this place?"
"This place sucks."
"Well we're staying here anyway."

*After a while*

"Okay, maybe staying here was a bad idea. Let's go somewhere else."

*Everyone moves*

"This place sucks too...It's almost the same as the last place. What did we do, just walk a half mile or what?"
"Shut up. At least it's new."

*After another while*

"Yeah, so all we did was walk half a mile, and, yes, this place sucks also I guess. Time to move on again."

*Moves*

"Okay, dude, we just walked another half mile and that's it. Look around. This place still sucks."
"Oh whatever. Who cares? I'm done moving around. If you want to leave, fine, but I'm sick of looking."
"After 1 whole mile covered in the space of x years? How lazy can you get? You know what, enjoy yourself. I'm outta here..."

nothing like that, and if the areas suck the villagers must be very very picky. I'd trade my city home for life in a valley ( New zealand here i come ) Each map has its own distinct feel, the similarity comes with the snow and mountains, i hope it doesnt stop people from downloading - people liked the first map and that was the key reason i stuck with the theme.

The stories differ but its the name of the map which links them, google 'Ourea' to find out more. Alexus is a great writer, his story will be much better than the one you are thinking of, thankfully

"( New zealand here i come )"

I'd hate to live in a country where your neighbour, best friend, partner, livelihood and pet are all the one and same

The only reason I say they'd say "this place sucks" is because, to me, the maps look chilly and not very hospitable, forboding even. Lol I should just DL them and find out what the heck is really going on.

So, with Ourea 2 out, can I assume your lives will be devoted to this map for the next month or so?
