Double Your Pleasure, Double Your Fun!
That's the statement of the greatment in Fall from Hyrule maps.
In keeping with one done-to-death feature from the Zelda series, each map you play on will have its own dark side/future clone/twilight realm sort of thing. Civs who utilize the mirror shards properly can essentially double their real estate, sneak past previously unpassable passages, and wreak havoc on another civ's present by altering its past.
Hundreds of new techs!!!
There are also plenty of new wonders based on locales in the Zelda series. Dungeons, for example, will make your cities take an extra 1-3 hours to invade, especially if it's a Water Temple.
The lucky ones will even be able to win the match by aquiring the ~~Triforce~~ by building the Tower of Din, which requires the Temple of Farore, which requires the Edifice of Nayru, which requires the Tower of Din!
The above strategy will also help you out in the upcoming Rhye's of Eternal Darkness mod.
So..um...yeah. Look for updates!
The End and
Post April Fools!
