This map pack contains updated versions of four of my most popular random maps:
A large map, highly randomized as far as topology and player placement are concerned. Lots of little islands dot the map and provide an abundance of treasures and resources, but not much space to build. Players start with an additional caravel, galley or a couple of war canoes. There are only a few native settlements around, which makes them even more valuable allies.
King of the Valleys
This is no 'King of the Hill' map, but controlling the center is just as vital here. The players start in valleys with either a Cree or Nootka camp close by and are separated by impassable mountain ranges. The valleys meet at the center of the map where a trade route and some gold mines are waiting to be claimed. Controlling this area is the key to victory!
Snow, grass, or sand? Different landscapes, varying resources, and random placement of players, natives, and even trade routes make this large map truly random. There are no oceans, but apart from that, just about everything is possible! Are you ready to go exploring?
This huge map provides the players with an abundance of resources and treasures, but the dense forest also makes moving around difficult, especially for bigger armies. There is no trade route, but up to six hidden Tupi or Zapotec villages. Players and natives are placed randomly, so scouting is essential here!
All four maps have been updated for use with AoE3's 'The War Chiefs' expansion. They play basically the same as before, but some minor adjustments had to be made for the new native civilizations to work properly. Check the readme files of the single maps for more information and installation instructions.
I would appreciate any honest feedback, good or bad. Please tell me what you liked, what you disliked, and especially, tell me why. If you have any ideas on how to improve the maps, all the better.
I would appreciate it even more if you did not modify these scripts without contacting me first.
Please send any comments or questions by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. Oh, and add 'Age of Empires' to the subject and use proper language, otherwise your message will probably be deleted by the spam filter.
Have fun! Felix
