A random map script for AOE3:The Asian Dynasties
This new RMS depicts an area along a flooded river, with crops still harvestable in the water. The setting is an arid area of the Indian subcontinent. There are several unique features of this rectangular map. First the players always are placed in a line parallel to the river. Second, the map (and river) become longer with more players. Third is the large number of berry bushes harvestable in the shallow water. The river always is placed on the south, with the forest adjacent to the river. The player line is in the midposition of the map. To the north is a treeless desert area, where the extra mines, a trade route, and the native villages are located. The natives can be Udasi, Sufi and/or Bhakti. There are not a lot of huntable animals on the map, and there are a few goats or cattle scattered about as well.
The unique setup of the map - players, resources and other features - makes the gameplay quite different. A team game usually results in all players on a team trying to defend the teammate closest to the enemy. A decision must be made on whether you risk sending vilagers out away from your base to the flooded land to harvest berries, where no defensive structures can be built.
To play this map, the two files (Desert Flood.xs and Desert Flood.xml) must be placed in the folder: My Documents\My Games\Age of Empires 3\RM3. Please do not place them in the game's install folder - that will not work. This script will not work in the original AOE3 or TWC due to the new content.
Thanks to Kastor at Napoleonic Era for the original concept.
