Like your other maps, I had to re-size it to a somewhat smaller size, else it was way too large for my taste.
The cow bonanza is in my opinion very nice!!!:)

Balance: 5
I found no problems with balance.

Creativity: 4
You did a good job on transforming and improving a built-in RMS by Ensemble Studios.

Map Design: 4
I found the design quite decent; the pond in the middle added a good bit to the enjoyment factor, due to the fact it is full of fish and because armies have to go around it.
Also, I liked the round-shaped, long trade route with a good number of sites for trading posts.

Detail/Accuracy: 3
There isn't much detail, but it's no big problem, either.

Additional Comments
Just like your other maps, this one is decent and solid, and I think it is well worth the download. Very suitable for a number of enjoyable games.

Keep on producing quality RMSs!

To DrIstvaan,

I was not sure if the size was ok:
from now on,
i will make them a little bit smaller.
i am happy to see that poeple from the community
are still enjoying them...
sometimes i am telling myself that they looks
the same...there is not a lot of things...
that can be put in a map as graphics is concerned.
but i still love making them...
thanks again for taking the time to write
to me some comments...
dany...
DrIstvaan And I thank you the time you put into your maps.
As for the lack of graphic possibilities, it's no problem; you do it very well that you take the environment of a buit-in RMS and enhance it with a new lay-out.
As_Saffah I like the map, a large ring map that turns out to be better and roomier than the typical ring maps for Great Lakes and the Unknown ones you get in normal play.

One thing though...the title of this map suggests the Cree will be present, and they are not. :( I realize the RMS style of this map is based on the Great Plains, but since it is so far north, perhaps the trade posts on the northern half of the map could be Cree and the southern could be Cheyenne or some other Plains type.

Just for historical accuracy and variety, I'd say.
KevinG why people don't post screenshots :(
I don't download without screens :|
