The British Isles

Author File Description

File Details
Game Version: AoE3
Screenshot:
This is a single player map the includes most of the north eastern Atlantic. There are seven computers and it can easily be altered to accompany a group of any size. Frustrated that the game lacks the same real world maps that it's predecessor had, I attempted to recreate this one in particular. Although this is my first map I think it turned out quite well. Feel free to criticize it, as I have really haven't spent much time playing with races other than the English. Playable races include: English (British), Scots (British), Welsh (Germans), Irish (British), Normans (French), Dutch (Dutch), Vikings, (Russians), and Norse (Russians). I put a large emphasis on historical and geographical accuracy, as well as gameplay. I would really appreciate comments on how it plays from the perspective of other races besides the English. You may notice that their is not an abundant amount of land resources. This is intentional, as I intended this map to focus mostly on conquest. Keep in mind that his map is VERY large. Thanks.

elvarg_Flame I'll download and take a look at this, however, you do need to know, that the Norse, and the Vikings are the same people, they only had different names.

For the sake of having 8 players I had too include two scandinavian races, and the terms "viking" and "norse" are purposefully generic. I do appreciate the criticism however, as I never even contemplated including the things I left out.

All scenarios are downloaded to my documents/my games/scenarios. Similar to "random maps", you can only play a scenario in the version (or a newer one )that it was developed in.
Teutonic Twit baxterlehman,

If your intend was for the player to choose which civilization you wished to play, you should have stated so in the beginning, or you should assign/select a civilization to be the starting one.

I don't know bull about scenario design, but I have seen scenarios that allow you pick the civilization the player wishes to play as...Maybe you could incorporate that in your scenario.

Um... really? I don't think this is possible (although I'm not entirely sure).

You could change the units, buildings etc. the player starts with and the starting location - therefore let him be "Vikings", "Norse", whatever, but the real civilization (techtree, units...) stays what it is (like Britain, Ottoman etc.)

Teutonic Twit Darthcast,

Missed your post, and sorry my bad I meant player, not civilization.

Edit:
baxterlehman,
You titled the scenario here "The British Isles", but you titled the upload "England". It's best to keep the title's the same so game players can locate it in their files.
