Ok, so last game I experimented with a mapscript and an all warmonger game, but Rainforest turned out to debilitate the AI too much, so it really wasn't much of a challenge. I've rolled a new map, which I slightly tweaked (upgraded a couple starting positions), and I hope this one will provide a fun romp for the Immortal players and some serious headaches for Deity attempts. Of course everyone is free to play along on any speed/difficulty they feel comfortable with, but the optimal (imho) settings for this map are No huts No events, Normal, Immortal for the lazy, and Deity for the masochistic Have fun ! Here is the leader: Spoiler : Continuing the tradition of strong leaders, this guy is always fun to play as. and here we have the start : Spoiler : A tempting start yet again, here's hoping the map makes up for this present I've added a worldbuilder save. To play, simply download the save into your BTS/Saves/WorldBuilder folder, choose Play a Scenario, choose your speed and difficulty level, and enjoy ! Don't forget to add the appropriate Barbarian starting techs for your difficulty level in the worldbuilder: Spoiler barb instructions : The handicap in the wb save has been deleted, so the AI races will start with the appropriate techs and units for your difficulty level. Barbarians should be tweaked as below: For players on Monarch or above, you should add archery as a tech for the barbarians (if you don't, the AI will capture their cities very early). This cannot be done in the WB save file and must be done in WorldBuilder as follows: Spoiler : Zoom in all the way so you can't see the rest of the map. Use the CTRL-W key (or the menu) to enter the WorldBuilder. Avoid looking at the mini-map in the lower right corner. By default you're in "player" mode (look in the box in the upper right; the icon that looks like a person should be selected). You'll get a drop down menu labelled with your leader's name. Barbarians are at the bottom, so cover the rest of the list with your hand if you don't want to see who else is on the map. Select "Barbarians". Select the "Technologies" tab in the box on the left. Find Archery (the arrow head icon; 8th row, 3rd column from the right) and click it. Exit the WorldBuilder. Zoom out again after the map fades, and start playing. PS: if anyone can tell me how to manage the warrior starting position whilst also deleting the beingunit line in the save to enable all difficulties, it would be much appreciated.
