Welcome to Lord Hackers Domain. This is my dream castle. There are 8 towers in the main castle. An armory at the back of the castle (Fortified, of course) and a river running through the area. This map took me 5-6 hours to create. If you would like to use some of my ideas, please credit them to me. Have fun!
This map was kind of different - interesting castle and armory section (surrounded by moat - that was neat!), lots of resources on the map, and lots of supplied resources at the start of the game.
The castle was kind of cramped - it had a great design and there was a lot going on inside (such as the garden/fountain), but it was hard to see! There were a LOT of archers & other military types set up. I set the archers loose on the poor wolves (which were stuck on the outside of the castle, on the island), and they were decimated in no time! Then I triggered an invasion using F1, and had fun watching my forces destroy the enemy. Other than that, there wasn't much that I needed to do. Having fewer resources supplied in the beginning (and something less than 50K in gold!) would make it more challenging, and not having the industry buildings already set up would give the player more to do. Also... I found myself making walls with no purpose, just to use up the stone as the stockpile kept getting filled up and nothing can be bought or sold in the marketplace.
No story to speak of, but there's a minimap in the download - I'd suggest adding it to the description page!
Nice job - I think it could be really terrific with fewer resources available, and a story to go along with it!
