Love it.

Sounds great :) The only issue I have with it is that it doesn't quite describe the map as a whole, merely the castle realms, if that makes sense. (Feudal War describes the setting of the map, in a sense, and Feudal Epic describes the vast amount of territory) Idk, maybe it's me just being picky, but I certainly wouldn't be upset with "Feudal Fortress", and besides, that doesn't necessarily need to be discussed now.

Anywho, looking forward to a draft! :D

gimil wrote:Fewnix, I like what you are saying about a new bonus system. However I was planning on making gameplay on the new map a little more fluid rather than structured towards forcing two specific castles to fight each other early on. In order to achieve this rather than a ratio off 2:1 castles/villages I might decrease this to 3:1 or 4:1, in order to put more people into a position to fight each other. Is this something that would interest you?

i think you should go the other way and add more villages. in reality castles where outnumbered by villages.

It's great to see that a new map in the Feudal series is under construction :)

Working on it. Finding it difficult to put together a full landscape. I want to move away from just a green play area like the other two maps Unfortunately this is all I have managed to do so far :lol: .

that's easy. all you need is:

1. a mountain (grey-white)
2. forests (dark green-orange)
3. barren lands (earth tones)

and this way you'll easily get more colours.

That is what I plan, I have just become needlessly fussy at the moment ;) and feel unsatisfied with everything I do.

Is Feudal Throne a working title? Or is it related to some new gameplay aspect of the map?

No, I did have a concept similar to on of our ideas which I was going to implement but have since changed my mind. If anyone has a better name for the title let me know!

Here is some test terrain that I did today. What do you all think of it?

They look good on my monitor. Perhaps a poll with a few choices for mountain graphics could be useful once the map is more complete.

id like to see the castle postitions before mountains,river etc colours are decided.

maybe throw a desert type area in one part of the map to give some contrast from other feudal maps?
