The Orient

Author File Description
File Details
Game Version: AoE3+TWC+TAD
This (planned) final continental map is of the Orient, featuring my favourite little strip of land known as Hyrcania :)

I plan to release all of these maps in a multiplayer-oriented pack with a little more polishing and player-number specific maps (e.g 2-player Australia etc) just to make it easy on the average player.

It is the first of my maps to use only cliffs of my own design, combining deccan cliffs with California terrain to emulate the Middle East as closely as I could. These cliffs will be released in (or separate from, haven't decided yet) my forests mod.

The map covers the lands from Cyrene and Greece to the Indus river, and from the Russian steppes to Socotra. The trees and huntables are more sparse than my previous maps. As always, treasures, animals and environments are as closely themed as I could make them.

Predators and pirates feature in this map. Player one are the Ottomans in Greece, and they will face Russian, French (Egypt), Indian and Chinese enemies.

Note that if you were one of the first few to download the map, it's been updated. I forgot to add HC water flags, and fixed some issues with the Persian player. The player also begins as the Persian player now, because the AI can't use the buildings added with triggers. I also added some custom home cities.

Enjoy! As always, you can paint all of the forests in this map:

Omkar There was a file named the orient inside the Asia zip. Was it a blueprint of this map. Really its a great version. Every body should try it
I think playing it in Age of Dynasties Mod as Persians would be much fun.

I've been playing it as the Arabs, a modified Ottoman civ in a medieval techtree/proto overhaul mod ;)

Thanks for the feedback!

*ps I've also got a bunch of planned maps like Central America, Gibraltar, Arctic Ocean, Tamriel/Nirn and the Valdivian Rainforests :D

Some are only texture prototypes thus far, others are coming along nicely.

Omkar Please add a Map of the Sea of Japan to your list. It would be great to fight in those vast seas from China, Japan, Korea, Manchuria or Russia. Excited for your upcoming uploads. Thanks..

That's a great idea, I'll have to plan exactly what to include in it though... I'll put it on the to-do list :)
rakovsky Can anyone tell me how to switch players?

I tried doing this once but the AI remained in control of my units, even though I chose "human" for the player whom I was playing (Player 7: Russia). I did this in your North American map and even though it switched me, it still kept Player 7 as Player 7, even though I played it and the problem was that the AI would randomly move my units during the game.

hey rakovsky, hopefully you'll see this comment sometime- you can remove the AI in the Player Data window, but you'll also need to delete the AI Start object- the triangle block things- that I placed close to the TC of the other playable nations (might be 2 or 3 lel)

I also noticed on Europe that one of my playable nations was controlling only my ships... nothing else at all. Go figure.
