World Antilarium 3 Metamap

Announcing my most ambitious project, the Antilarium 4 Metamap (the latest version). I call it a "metamap" because it also includes a special mod to take advantage of all the modding capabilities that Dominions 3 has to offer, that provides hints of a storyline, as well as custom magic sites, AI heroes, pretenders, magic items, and AI units.

The mod is designed to be fully compatible and complimentary with my Mytheology Pretenders 3 mod. If you want to try it with any other mods, you might want to check against the numbers spreadsheet I've listed to identify potential conflicts.

Enjoy!

Map description:
Quote:
217 provinces, including 32 water. Starting locations are established for 12 nations, 3 of which are underwater. Nearly all water provinces are contiguous, and can reach all parts of the map. Landmasses are separated, mountainous, with many interconnections. Game victory is achieved by controlling 6 of the 16 special victory sites. Two of the 16 sites are underwater, and count double toward victory.

Sixteen provinces contain the fabled Wells of Power. Guarded by heroes and armies of legendary might, it is said that the first Pretender which can control 6 of these Wells can recreate the world unto their own desires. While these Wells all are surrounded by an unusually powerful magic sites, their defenders will not be defeated without tremendous force of arms and magic. Each Well contains unique recruitable units that will change the balance of power with new strategic and tactical ramifications.
You can download version 4.01 here: antilarium4.zip

Here are some of the fun sprites I've built for this map's challenges. They really don't show up well against this background, but I'm very happy with how they look in the game where the bitmasking works right.

I love Antilarium!!!

It reminds me alot of the Faerun map of Dominions 2 fame. I haven't played this new version yet, but I'am going to setup a game in it today, and I'll post my thoughts ASAP.

I'll download this right away. It sounds awesome, and should be quite a timewaster.

thanks mordici! I await everyone's feedback with nervous anticipation, literally. (one hopes for accolades, but fears the bug reports)

Before I say anything else I just gotta say WOW! I was expecting maybe a few commanders and a couple pretenders unique to the map. Instead I got more commanders then I could have imagined. Pretenders that are part of the storyline,not just new pretenders, magic items unique to the mod, and some random attacks by unique commanders not related to the wells.

Thank you Psientist!!! This map is a pleasure to play, and will be my favorite for quite some time


PS I'am reluctant to put the three items that are a part of you-know-who together on the same commander

Unfortunately, I am playing an MP game (artifacts) which uses the older Antilarium map, so I am hesitant to install this one. I can't wait to eventually try it out though.

Hmm. When I try to play with the Antilarium mod enabled, I get a Nagot gick fell crash, with the message "No holiness"

This looks like a lot of fun. I really like the idea behind your project and the units look good. The big fella with the purple cape has especially peeked my curiosity.
