Author File Description
HgEuAaVrEdN King Of The Hill Map By HgEuAaVrEdN v0.3


This map consist of a center hill area, sorrounded by player islands.

Each island has a Town Center, 2 herds of pronghorn, a berry bush ,and many trees.

Capture the Fixed Gun in the center of the map for 15 mins and you win!



To install:

Place KOTH.xs and KOTH.xml in My Documents\MyGames\Age Of Empires 3\RM

Place FixedGun&Base.xml in Program Files\Age Of Empires 3\RM\Groupings



To play this Map:

When selecting maps check the "Custom Maps" button and select "King Of The Hill"



Known bug:

I noticed that the second time you capture the gun in single player the counter doesnt show..

Next time it is captured it works fine.

Added A Total War mode:

To play it, select Expert difficulty.

Timer fixed, Total war mode gives 100000 of each res.

Any Comments, Suggestions, Bugs To be fixed, please post them here.

I will try to make this the best king of the hill map for aoe3 :p

Have Fun!

Works exactly as advertised. Timer could have been a little longer. Balance fine. Great map.

Additional Comments:
The fixed gun didn't work until I added the FixedGun&Base file to the folder Program Files\Microsoft Games\AOE3\RM\Groupings when I just added it to the one inside of My Games it did not work for some reason.

Too bad you can't really have much fun with this vs. computer opponents but with humans it is great fun.

It'd be nice to have a Total War version of this, more resources at start, to get the fighting started realy early.

Disappointing - that's not "King of the Hill", that's "Run for the Hill"...

The gun is much too strong, whoever gets there first wins almost for sure. Having said that, the Spanish have a HUGE advantage here, because their war dogs are available right from the start and can support the explorer in taking control of the gun.
Worse still, whoever controls the gun also controls the trade route, giving an even bigger advantage.

As others have stated already, put something else on the "hill", otherwise there won't be no back-and-forth battles that make this kind of game interesting.
