Ozzy's Map of Erebus for Orbis v3

Ozzy's Map of Erebus for Orbis

  1. OzzyKP
    Here is my stab at creating an interesting, playable, and somewhat accurate (based on what little I know of the storyline) map for use with Kael's Fall from Heaven 2 mod and Ahwaric's Orbis modmod.

    Version 3 (compatible with Orbis version 1.0b) Uploaded 6-6-19:

    This huge map includes all finished, playable civs (as of version 1.0b). The leaders/civs included are:

    Bannor - Sabathiel
    Malakim - Varn Gosam
    Elohim - Einion Logos
    Luchuirp - Beeri Bawl
    Kuriotates - Cardith
    Ljosalfar - Arendel Phaedra
    Palatinate - Siegfried

    Khazad - Kandros Fir
    Amurites - Valledia the Even
    Grigori - Cassiel
    Sidar - Sandalphon
    Lanun - Hannah the Irin
    Hippus - Tasunke
    Mechanos - Verocchio
    Scions of Patria - Risen Emperor
    Dao - Yinxi

    Doviello - Charadon
    Balseraphs - Perpentach
    Svartalfar - Faeryl Viconia
    Clan of Embers - Sheelba
    Calabim - Alexis
    Sheaim - Tebryn Arbandi
    Illians - Auric
    Tlactl - Kolsehvahn

    I took care to balance the placement of good/neutral/evil civs. No civ should be totally surrounded by enemies nor entirely enclosed by friends. Most civs (16 of them) are on one main continent with the Lanun on a nearby island. Seven civs (two good, three neutral and two evil) are placed on a separate continent. There should be enough room (and open civ slots) for Mercurians and Infernal to spawn.

    Civs were placed according to their native land. Hippus are in a great central plain. Khazad are in a mountain range. Doviello are in the tundra, etc.

    I did my best to arrange civs according to who their neighbors are in the storyline I found on the wiki. I was only able to find a description for Bannor (that the Clan of Embers were to their east, Doviello to their northwest, and Lunun in islands to the west). The Khazad and Luchuirp are neighbors as are the Ljosalfar and Svartalfar.

    Finally I tried to make the map conform to natural geographic characteristics with two large mountain chains running north and south situated in the east and the west of the main continent. In both cases the mountains divide greener land closer to the ocean and drier land in the interior. I also did my best to cluster resources to necessitate trade between civs.

    Version 3 Changes:
    I added Palatinate & Dao, which necessitated expanding the smaller continent. I switched the leader for the Tlactl to be evil and moved the Sheaim to the smaller continent with the Dao taking their spot on the big one (for alignment balance). I also did some rebalancing of resources.

    Any comments, suggestions, complaints are certainly welcome. The "development thread" is here: http://forums.civfanatics.com/showthread.php?t=341290
