You read correctly!

The elitary NE duo Yomgui & Tilanus plans to add 1-2 new random maps with new natives! However, we're not sure and no great RM scripters. So we thought ..

.. let the community decide and do! Devil


You can script a random map for us and if it's good enough, we will include the map into NE and work out the new minors for your map! Cool

We prepared a lil keyword pool for you to choose from:
  • Finland (Finns): Dense forest, hilly terrain, scandinavian flora & fauna, many little lakes, sea around, Native villages, just a few mines

  • Gibraltar (Barbary States): Short excerpt of southern Spain in the north [mediterranean fauna], larger northern african coast with appropriate fauna, Strait of Gibraltar [either connected or not], Natives villages only in Africa, standard amount of mines, lots of sea treasures

  • South Africa (Zulu): Scrubland, typical fauna [Elephants!] and flora [I know there is almost everything, use your fantasy], native villages all over the map, attacking lions [if possible for you], many different types of mines

  • Denmark (Danes): System of flat isles of different sizes, needs always one isle with medium and another with large size, lots of wind [don't exaggerate], inlets, cliffs, lots of fish, land spits, coves/bays, drift hills/dunes, (western) north of the map should be the northern sea [water only with sea treasures], few or no land treasures


So if your favorite civ is among these and you'd like to see them in Napoleonic Era:
THIS IS YOUR CHANCE!


If you can not script Random Maps or just lack a bit of knowledge, then you might:
  1. Ask somebody to help you. (Meh.)

  2. Try to improve your skill as much as possible and send us your currently best result


And if you can script, then you could just script the shit out of yourself to get what you want so bad! Cool

YOU ARE ALLOWED TO USE NE MAPS AS BASE OF YOUR WORK!


For some help in RM scripting the AoE3H Scenario Design Forum should be a place to go.


Good luck and happy scripting! Smile

In other circumstances, I would've say: "I don't give a shit" for the lulz, but I voted for the Zulu map now!

Good initiative, Tilanus Mr. Green Hopefully someone who knows his stuff will be equally exited.

I have one question though. (Ah yes, there it comes Devil ) Since when did Denmark have fjords?

Yeah! Cool, dude! Smile Will you tell us which map(s?) you will do? Mr. Green

@SAOL - You nitpicker, you see everything do you. Devil Linguistic mistake, the Danes have fjords too, but they're not what's geologically understood as fjord. Fixed it.

Hej, I didn't see it from that point of view, you're right and SAOL is wrong once again! lol

The topography of the today denmark and norway are so different, it'd be hard to have it in one map, so denmark on its own is a pretty difficult map to do.

Fun, clever little way to get the community into the project, Tilanus (and Yomgui). I like the idea. Smile That said, I don't think it's much of a secret which particular map has garnered my vote, really.

Akalukhuni ukuzofundela neze. Cool

No, I don't think so Devil It was quite clear from your description that you were talking about the geographical area Denmark, not the entire sphere of influence of the Danish. It would be like saying that the map 'Great Britain' should include Australia, which is rather absurd.

Squee!

It could still use some maps (Great Britain and Spain), but I'm very happy to see some (planned) additions.
