*** GAME INFO ***
If we can do a little mini-blitz tonight, coo - or we can get a few turns in and see if we can do that over the weekend. Or not. Whatever.
I'll start the game up tonight when I get home - watch this space for IP and port #.
The attached map is a combination of Paradox' random map generator (insert link to thread) and my own balanced start site + semi-random-map generation script.
The majority of the major treasure provinces (cities) and minor treasure provinces that I've actually coded up are found in this map - and in fact those needed a lot of fiddling before they worked remotely like I'd meant them too.
Anyway, the map is ready for play so let's give it a whirl. I'll play niefelheim once more before retiring this build.
There are a total of 8 land start sites, and no water starts. Six of the start sites are on the main continent, 2 are on the secondary island.
There is a lot of water on the map, though, so sailing or strong amphib units will take you a long way.
There are six "cities" worth 1 (in one case, 2) victory point each. They have fortresses in them, and (with the exception of the one worth 2) a large population, so you'll be expected to try and hold them for income before sieging the city itself.
Each city contains a communion of 8 slaves backing up 3 very powerful spellcasters covered with gems, as well as a large army. Expect to take losses while storming the forts for VP.
Other settings - magic sites 55, gold 125, resources 100, supply 125, hall of fame 15, renaming on, victory points accumulate. Other settings standard. The resource reduction is to compensate for the neighbor-rich start positions (which otherwise strongly encourage Sloth.)
There'll be a 36 hr quickhost interval, which will get longer as the game drags on.
This is something a "test run" before I try running a tournament.
Sorry, yes, the game is early era.
I'm going to make some minor adjustments to the map file. The special province #s (which I will post in the thread) will not change, and they're marked on the map anyway with big orange dots and VPs.
