There's Gold in them there hills!!
This is Hikaro's first attempt at creating a RMS, and he'd like to thank RF_Gandalf for his help and Monty Python for his tutorial, without which this would not be possible.
This is essentially an Inverted Rockies map, where the players all start in a narrow, cirular canyon, with most of the treasures and game being on the central ridge. There are also 4 native villages in the canyon: any combination of Apache, Cheyenne, Comanche, Navajo or even 1 of each. Also, in addition to the two trade routes having 1 trading post point at each end, there is also a middle trading post site.
The players also start with 5 miners (unit that has a sort of grenadier type attack and can also gather from any crates or coin source), 1 house and a saloon in addition to the normal starting units and TC. All of the gold mines are in the central ridge, with only 1 silver mine per player in the canyons, making control of the central ridge a priority.
This map was inspired by some of the Single player campaigns and Hikaro watching too many cowboy movies when he was a kid. I hope you all enjoy this map as much as I do.
