"Corellia: Hidden Valley" is another nice, simple map brought to us by bobfinkl. "Corellia" is set in a rainy forest through which a couple small rivers flow. It is a medium-sized map that's mostly flat, interspersed with a few objects.
The high point of this map is really its polish. While it is not a very complicated map, the level of detail is right and it creates, I believe, exactly the setting the author wanted to create. The rain fits very well with this setting - it is a heavy rain and on a flatter map like this one, it provides some necessary distraction from seeing straight across the map. Likewise, the objects used - while not excessive - certainly fill up the map and don't feel repetitive (despite the fact that they are all mostly trees). There isn't anything really eye-catching or anything that makes you go "wow-" but not every map tries to do that and this one does succeed where many maps fail, in that this map makes you feel like you are really in the setting.
The only real negatives there might be with this map is its simplicity - only four units are selectable, and conquest is really all that is available (although available for both CW and GCW). While this is merely a personal preference, it is sometimes nice to see a little more unique stuff than vanilla conquest. Other than that, there were no noticeable real technical flaws.
So while this map certainly isn't the most incredible map, it does do a fantastic job of creating a setting, and it is a very solid and well-put together simple map. The author has certainly gotten talented at putting these together, and it's to the point where I look forward to seeing what he's going to do. Give it a download and try it yourself!
