[MAP] Ozzy's America - More Accurate Start

  1. OzzyKP
    This is a map/scenario for those of you who want to play a more historical/realistic game. I've taken the great New World map by Modfather and added several terrain tweaks. Then I paired it with Dale's Age of Discovery II mod.

    All the natives have been placed in earth-accurate locations. I've also set the French, Dutch, English, Spanish, Portuguese and Pirates to start in more accurate locations so each are closer to more historical territory for them. The Spanish have been given a small head-start too. I've put the pirates back a bit further too, to give the civilized folk a few turns (not many!) to get established.



    I've also tweaked the high seas, so no player is burdened by being too far away from Europe.

    So if you are tired of playing as the English and ending up in Argentina next to the Sioux, this is the map/scenario for you!

    To play you need Dale's Age of Discovery II mod. Unzip this file into your PublicMaps folder and enjoy!


    To change leaders:
    Spoiler :

    1. Open up the map in a text editor (like Notepad).
    2. Do a "find" (ctrl + f) for "BeginPlayer"
    3. You'll see a list of all the leaders in the game. Find the one you want to change.
    4. Find the lines that say something like:
    LeaderType=LEADER_ADAMS
    LeaderName=TXT_KEY_LEADER_ADAMS

    5. Change that to any of the following leaders:

    LeaderType=LEADER_WASHINGTON
    LeaderName=TXT_KEY_LEADER_WASHINGTON

    LeaderType=LEADER_ADAMS
    LeaderName=TXT_KEY_LEADER_ADAMS

    LeaderType=LEADER_CHAMPLAIN
