Global Wars

Author File Description
File Details
Game Version: AoE3+TWC+TAD
# of Players: 6


This scenario is based on the Arab Desert Series by me, KevTheGreat. Many people had wanted an Arab Desert 8, but i decided to try something new, and made this, includes many, many features new, old, and perfected.

The Storyline of ths game doesn't make much sense, but i still decided to put it in. Five Empires have risen to face the test of time, they compete in a world tournament. Who will win, who will conquer? You control your diplomacy, so be prepare to experiance cold wars, World Wars, and others...


*day-night-day cycle

*rain events

*miniquests for each player

*flags of diplomacy

*tutorial on the flags

*over 550 triggers

*over 1200 effects

*many more

This scenario is in the CSO contest, so please grade well :)

P1-5 are human players, p6 is a comp (ivan the terrible), Discovery Age, FFA, Read Hc names for civ order

-fixed minor trigger bugs
-added houses
-removed 2 wonders from japan
-added the victory trigger
-other minor things

french reinforcements come faster
-if france revolts they lose reinforcements from the homeland and gain a one reinforcement army (from the people uniting, not the homeland)
-heroes that die are removed form the game unlike explorers
-heroes now have trigger attacks when injured and/or death
-aztec hostages are now not invincible and have no attack (converted to igc) therefore making it harder to do mission
-aztec hostage mission rewards have been increased greatly
-fixed minor bugs

-misspellings have been fixed
-the loss trigger for france has been added (I don't know y it was missing)
-hostages are no longer IGC units
-minor faulty triggers have been fixed

-increased amount of lighting changes, not just 2 settings that change every 15 minutes anymore, now there are 10 lightings that change every 200 seconds
-rain occurs more often and are shorter
-spanish houses have been fixed to match their culture

-Gates can now be closed to allied players or opened (your choice) this will prevent entering your city and declaring war on you. However this only applies to preset gates.
-Fixed flagsno longer getting "lost"
-New music including a custom music file in the download (if you are wondering what the song is trying to say, it basically means religion causes wars)
-Intro cinematic is now optional
-You can now move around during tutorial cinematic if you didn't want to watch it and some other people did

thx for your review noob102 :)
acornhead Playability: 5
It was a fun map to play, based on the others ppl thoughts on wat they were gonna do. I am more of a peacefull nation, and kinda a merc in game :)

Balance: 5
the civs were all balanced, each with there own advantages and dissadvantages. Otto- 4 factories, but in the middle and cannot build another capital. France- no set buildings, but gains reinforcements and alot of resources near them. Spain- their own cave :) but they send gold back to the queen for mercs :) Aztecs- huge land both good and bad. Japan- super samurais and natives around them :)

Creativity: 5
No other map is like this, other than your own :) flags, night-day cycle, rain events, etc.

Map Design: 5
Over 500 trigger, a night and day cyle, rain, and other minor stuff. i belive this is your bestmap ever.

Story/Instructions: 5
I loved your story on the arabdesert series the mpst but this story was ok. The instructions were much better here than in the Arab.

Additional Comments:
I believe this was your bestmap, i've also played your new map "The Race" i believe that the white spots should have a lower speed down, other than that it was fun. :)

Very good playable.Also the cinematic go not oos like it did so often in Arab Desert :)

Balance: 5
Every Civ have a good number of ressources nice decks and a good chance to win. So the balance is very good

Creativity: 4
Nearly the same stuff like in Arab desert. So we saw much before.
EDIT:OK, because you are kevthegreat
Map Design: 4
It`s a Beatifull map.Only point is that ur diplomacy box looks really confused/strange. Look at earth - so look a good one :).

Story/Instructions: 4
This is so long and endless...After you see one time you wish to skip it everytime. But the instruction is in my opoinion clear so i give you a good 4
(hc-instruction: plz do the cities u should use before this ones u shouldnt use [ do a Z or some stoff like this in front of them])

Additional Comments:
A very good scenario... I HATE ONLY THE **** CINEMATIC xD. I recommend this scenario

thx for your review, and the diplomacy box is more complicated than earth becuase it is not a one time use, it was harder to make but i think it was worth it. I also believe that the creativity should be at least a 4 due to the rain, and night - day events, i also started the diplomacy :P. Other than that thx for the 11th review on global wars :)

4 reviews are removed i see... poor kev but the rating still keep 4.3 xD
File Author
yes but my arab desert has fallen :(.... and i think that icepick27's reviews should be removed.... he did not follow the instructions on how to set up the game therefore leading into his issues...
Official Reviewer
icepick27's review is fine because you don’t have any instructions on how to set up the game.

Besides, you should set up the game’s starting age yourself via triggers (you should know how to do that) and you cannot expect people that download your scenarios online to guess what the setup is supposed to be.

Just set up the starting age via triggers - it’s easy.
