P77 cats and mice

Author File Description
Pegasus77
File Details
Game Version: AoE3+TWC+TAD
# of Players: 5
Hey it's me, Pegasus77! I am back with my favorite scenario:

P77 cats and mice
v4.51!

Last update: 1st November 2014

Brief description:
This is a rather untypical cats and mice game, taking place on a convoluted map. Throughout the map the players will discover a bunch of special areas like shops, upgrades and hidden treasures, to name a few.

Installation:
-Download the map
-Unzip from .zip file
-Move the scenario file into the folder:
C:\...\My Documents\My Games\Age of Empires 3\Scenario

Set-up:
Since this is a multiplayer-scenario you will have to host it online. Assure that the players of the first three slots are the mice (Team 1).
Thus the cats take place on slot 4+5 (Team 2).
The chosen civilisation matters as well. The mice will receive certain benefits depending on what they have chosen, while the cats simply have to make their choice basing on their unit preferences.

General Features:
- About 950 triggers
- Balanced since v3.2
- Works with any amount of players (at least 1 mouse and 1 cat though), but is best fun with 5 players.
- Big map with well designed landscape, many regions and secret areas
- Building limit for Outposts and others, to ensure that winning actually requires skill and not tower-spamming
- 1 out of 28 different random events every 3 minutes
- It's automatically postimperial


Mouse Features:
- About 80 different shops for units, upgrades and much more
- Spawn in a town that grants mice several resources and the possibility to spawn some units for free
- Level up system to gain access to powerful upgrades, items and units
- Inventory + Hotkeys. Collect items and use them in the right moment by comfortably pressing a key
- Different benefits, basing on the CIV chosen at the start of the game
- It's your decision whether you hide in one place or take the risk to go out and explore the map. The latter option will of course reward you with alot specials
- Possibility to deposit your gold in a bank account for a while to let it grow from the interests. You can always withdraw your gold again
- Award system with 24 helpful events
- Obtain resource wagons to earn food, wood or gold

Cat Features:
- 24 different units to spawn, 6 for each level
- Automatical level up over time
- Upgrades and specials due to destroyed mouse buildings
- Upgrades due to destroyed mouse towns
- Heroes with enormous strengh and the ability to invoke a magic power
- Decision whether you spawn units, or train them in your fort
- Monster-Trucks at the end of the game
- The choice of the CIV affects the abilities and the appeareance of the hero and the fort
- Infinite resources to assure that units are trained fast
- If a cat resigns his/her mate receives a reward to balance the game a little


Download Features:
- The latest and official version. Not edited or manipulated
- A readme-file with some helpful tips about tactics, CIV's and areas



Just a perfect place for a little hide and seek game.

You can play it and everything I tried works. At the end of the game I found things that I didn't use and didn't even know how to do it. So it's very hard to find all the good things to win the game (I was cat).

Balance: 4
The mice were a bit too OP but it was possible to win as cat so I give a 4 ;)

Creativity: 4
The map already exist in many versions but you added a lot of new things which are in none of these versions.

Map Design: 5
Very big map with a lot of different things like a snowstorm many trees a cave and others. Well done!

Story/Instructions: 3
No story but all instructions to play are given.

Additional Comments:
A very confusing map but when you know what to do it is very funny!

Hey hans! Thanks for rating this map!
I must say all what ya say is true, except one thing. You said the mice are a bit OP, but normaly the cats are the OP part :P
(well, you played alone with a bad civ against 3 good mice! Of course you say its unfair :P)
And at all the other guys, pls feel free to write questions, comments, critism or whatever.

The game is very playable and all works but in some parts for cats only it is really boring tracking out the mices.

Balance: 5
The balance is exelent really the most balanced cats and mice game I ever played.

Creativity: 4
The cats and mice idea alredy existed but you made it to a new level with shops,teleporters,random events and manny other great things.

Map Design: 5
The map desing was just epic everything very detailed and well designed it was an RPG type of eye-candy map I never seen such a great cats and mice design

Story/Instructions: 4
Some things are difficult to figure out like how get free units spaming at you base but it truly doesnt need much instructions.

Thank you very much for rating this, maxulino.
And you´re right, some parts are really hard to figure out. Often some confused players leave the game or dont use specials, like the shops, teleporters etc.
But I cant find any way (without deleting the specials) to make it easier to understand.
Almost, you have to play the map like 2 or 3 times to understand all.
loard of peace just a queastion btw works the hotkey effect now,becuase i bought 2x every item (magical shild etc...) but it only shows that i bought 1 mgical shild. xD
