File Details
Ruleset: TS Standard Rules
Map Size: Large
Playable Races: All
Surface Levels: 2

IMPORTANT: This is for Age of Wonders 2: The Wizards Throne. I'm afriad this level won't work on Age of WOnders 1

This level is basically a 6 way battle on the continent of Europe.

Features:

6 Powerfull races duke it out in Europe. The Humans, the elves, the Archons, the Goblins, The Orcs and Halflings

A vast underground world complete with a massive maze. Traverse the maze to find 'The Ring of Power' which literally turns your hero/wizard invsiable

The landscape of Europe in true beauty with rivers

Each races starting city is a capitol city of Europe

Other European cities dot the landscape including underground.


This is my first map I have evermade so any cristism (preferably postive) would be appericated. This map does not include the north coast of Africa but if you want I shall add it

I know this is your first map, but what the hell is this???

Let's start with the playability first:

1)Playability:
There is no landscape. That's why the game is boring as hell. Everyone's going the same way over the plains. There is just water and most of the map is just low landscape??? There isn't any kind of gameplay! The quest in the underground is bad and though there is no landscape the game is over before you can build up an army for the underground. (and I am not that slow!)
Sorry, but you have to learn to build maps that are interesting for the players.

2)Balance:
I'll give you 2 points because the races are at least a few turns away from each other and I can't, no, let's say I don't want to say more about it. Be happy about the 2 points boy.

3)Creativity:
I can imagine that building the underground level was a lot of work (for YOU). But the quest down there is bad and I don't think that it is of any use because the game is over too fast. Building Europe was a creative idea, but in the end it was a desaster, sorry...

4)Map Design:
Now it's time for the most interesting part in my comment, the Map Design. And if there would be points like -5 up to +5 you would receive a -4. What the hell where you doing. I know it is your damn first map, but where is the landscape man?! Couldn't you find the right buttons?! If you look at these wonderful maps that the designers of AoW2
have created... and you didn't use any flowers, stones, the trees are almost countable, no bushes and forget about the mountains... Mapping isn't a thing that is finished in 3 hours. Every detail is important, but you only set a few places, less than a dozen towns, some trees and some mountains standing there all alone. My god... This was a nightmare... There is too much water and another big problem is that it is not very accurate. I mean from the geographical point of view...

5)Story/Instructions:
None. Absolutely no instructions. Not even one or two introduction sentences. None. I am glad that you have at least found a name for your map. I could have given you the remark "none", but I thought it is important to rate everything.

Overall:
A horrible map. Not even worth to play one round. But don't give up. Just correct your faults and build up a landscape, maybe it'll become playable then. So I hope it is really a Beta 1.0 and you will change a lot (everything) in the future. And: Don't hate me for writing this. If you need help, just write me christian.simon1@freenet.de ! If you like to download my "Worldmap" take a look at the "Multi Player Maps" section. It's a map of the earth and I am proud of it. It was my first one and it took me days of work and I know that it isn't very good, but at least it isn't bad after all. You need to become much better in map designing, but you can make it, just take your time...
