?

are there some rules not shown on this map?


one thing I noticed is that the map is 801px high. So, remove that 1px!!!


You have some gameplay issues because I think whoever starts in Comenal Castle is going to win or at least have a huge advantage. Also, there's only 7 resources. It looks like Sratun Castle is out of the mix.


suggested to do list

1. fix height
2. redo / touch up borders so they look finished
3. make borders for different zones (shown in the mini-map) noticeably different.

from there you should worry about the gameplay and placement of resources, castles, villages, and impassables etc...

oops, better remove it

wrong, fishing dock is a resource

definately need impassables. I stink at mountains, so it would not be those. Maybe a river or lake, or cliffs like in Feudal, but i cant figure out how to do cliffs

feudal does it different. not better not worse.
in fact the 3 conquest maps. aor: might, aor: magic and feudal have totally different gameplays which is very good. also they are suitable for different gametypes.


and ontopic i have just 1 request. please don't use numbers for terits. bust your brain and come up with short names cause numbers suck.

yea, but for me i like to just get a resource pair or 2 in AoR, then conquer everybody. In Feudal, i just conquer left and right to the nearest castle 8)

ok, and i agree, they do suck, i just needed them in there so that

1. i had temporary territory names
2. i could count easier how many terits there were

instead of arguing here better do that next update and show people that this map has potential.
