Land Unknown Random Map Script

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 anything is possible! Are you ready to go exploring?

This map features:
- three different basic map types (snow, grass, or sand)
- randomized landscapes (lakes, cliffs, etc.)
- varying resources & treasures
- randomized player placement
- randomized trade route with varying number of trade posts
- up to six native villages
- four different native tribes


WARNING: 
Due to the randomized placement of just about everything, this map has the potential to be somewhat "unfair". However, the script is not completely random; there are rules to make sure players start out on a more or less equal footing. So maps will not be created in a way that leaves a player without a proper chance (e.g. because almost all resources are located much closer to the enemy), but don't expect to find all natives or treasures at exactly the same distance from the players. Good scouting is essential here!


To install the map, copy both files 'Land Unknown.xml' and 'Land Unknown.xs' into the game folder '..\My Games\Age of Empires 3\RM' (NOT into '..\Microsoft Games\Age of Empires III\RM'!).

You can then play it both in single player or multiplayer mode by checking the 'Custom Map' box on the map selection screen and then selecting it from the pulldown menu.


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 it, all the better.

I would appreciate it even more if you did not modify this script without contacting me first.


Please send any comments or questions by e-mail to hoodncloak@hotmail.com. 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
