Author File Description
File Details
Game Version: TAD
The Great Honshu War:
A random map script for AOE3 with the Asian Dynasties expansion:

This is my 127th rms map...( 2 or 4 players map... )

This is a map done with The Asian Dynasties Expansion:
This map has an Honshu rms style...
It is a very large water map...980x980...
The Map has many islands...
plus some ypFishCatfish and ypSquid...
also HumpbackWhale and water nuggets...
Plus, 4 natives tribes...the jesuit and the zen,
and also some random ypSerow or ypGiantSalamander...
plus some ypWaterBuffalo to capture...
also some Random Berrybush...all over the map...
As for treasures...a fair amount of nuggets...all over the map...
a few Silver and Gold mines...here and there:
plus some decorations...
and finally a lot of resources...

Have fun....

Feedback appreciated...specially about the size of the map...
I hope it is not to big...
on my pc, the loading and the playing are good.


PS: I managed to get the AoE3 Debugger working
and there are no bugs...
PS: Many thanks to RF_Gandalf for his precious help...
PS: Also to Jugit for helping me to keep my maps away from Bugs...
PS: This map was conceived just for 2 players or 4 players...
PS: PUT THE MAP IN My Documents\My Games\Age of Empires 3\RM3.
PS: Many Thanks to Ensemble for creating this nice game...

beachbum13 I loved this map!!! But once again I can't seem to get the Naval battles. The AI did not build ships or docks so Naval Action and no challenges to the other Islands.

Is there something else I can try??? I have added the AI files but it does not help on this map??
FreeSandwich Beachbum, I share your concern for the lack of water-based maps, but I am not so disconcerted that I feel the need to bother other people into making a water map. Just make your own, dude. Like I said, I am simply too lazy make one. Or learn how to map random maps, for that matter.
Jugit Beachbum and others, the easiest way to get naval activity is to edit the aiMain.xs file. Find every occurance of "caribbean" and make a line just like each one but with "The Great Honshu War". Assuming you know a little programming. If you don't know any programming, just replace every "caribbean" with "The Great Honshu War". But make a copy of the original file first so you can put it back. Or you could download the Drauguar AI located on about the 4th page of the Misc Files section of this web site. This makes the AI fish and make a navy but you need to use the first method to get the AI to transport an army to the enemy island. I used the first method with an AI ally against 2 AI opponents and all 3 AIs transported an army fairly quickly in the game.

Hope this helps. Let me know if you need any clarification.
beachbum13 Thank you for the AI advice.

As for "bothering" people. It's always been my feeling that developers enjoy feedback. So I take the time to leave feedback and tell them when I enjoy a map. Guess it depends if they make the maps for themselves or other people. The important think is that they do make them and share!

Very rarely do I ever say anything negative. To me making maps is a pretty much a thankless job. They get very little feedback or comments. One of the reasons I play AOE is because there's almost always a new map to play. I can't say thanks enough to these guys!!! I don't have the time or the interest in making maps. I'm thankfull they do. Maybe someday I'll have enough free time to learn.

At any rate to the "Map Makers" I'm not trying to "bother" you or badger you in to making "naval" maps. I'm simply letting you know what one person who downloads your maps likes. Do what you want with that info. I'll be here to download your next map!!! And know that your work, or hobby, is appreciated. BIG TIME!!!!! THANKS!!! BB13

To Jugit,

I have modified the aiMain.xs, and played my
last water map...i loved it...the AI is attacking
and my pc allies works great...

Thanks again...as usual...
you are very helpfull to the community...
beachbum13 I tried it but it did not work for me. About how many times did you have to make the change? I'm guessing that with all those pages I missed a couple.
Jugit I counted ten locations. Each one does something slightly different, though I think some are redundant. Make the changes and start the game with at least one ally and watch their fishing boats. At about 20 seconds into the game one fishing boat should start fishing and the other should start exploring; if not something is wrong. I think the AI needs to find an enemy dock, outpost, fort or something before it will attack. So is possible to go the whole game without any significant naval activity.
