Castle Whitestone v2.1

Author File Description
File Details
Map Size: 400x400 (Large)
Difficulty: Hard

This castle is belived to be invincible, having repelled countless invasions. Once more the king and his army are forced back here and trust the legend.

This is my first submission here, I hope you like it. The castle is very easy to defend against the AI, but I have not yet been able to siege it successfully. I trust many of you will find it easy but I found it to be quite hard.

Version 2.0: I have updated the file with a newer version. The zip still contains the original version. I have added more eyecandy such as bridges, docks and improved the landscape. Check the old version and the new one below (new one has the river)

Also, I have greatly improved the way the AI attacks the castle so that the very hard dificult is actually quite tough to beat. Fortunately, I have finally been able to completely siege the castle \o/

Thanks for reading, I hope you have fun with it.

Thank you very much for that review. I must admit I was a bit disappointed at never getting a review, or even a comment ;)

I have taken your compliments heartly and considered your sugestions and critique. Right now I'm playing trough some of the high rated maps on this site to learn more about mapmaking. Your review was great as it pointed to me some of the key point I need to improve. Thank you.

About this map: Indeed, I belive I have used more crossbowman than I should. Defending the castle against the AI is almost too easy, and on the lower difficult settings you can even just hit play and let the castle "auto-defend". I am happy that it proves to be somewhat of a challenge to attack, as I always build them with that goal. I might come back and revamp the map a bit, but I rather work on a new design.

Thank you again, Arhurt.
