This scenario I have placed my own map script in - it should serve as a starter for other hard-to-code scenarios. I saved time as well as energy by using this method.
You start with 45-50 villagers, 10-15 miners, 10k resources, 10k XP and 20 Musketeers, 10 Grenadiers, 4 Rockets, 10 Hussars, 10 Dragoons, 1 Explorers; you have 4 Town Centers, a wall, a Fort and extra Towers/Outposts. There are 3 Lakota Posts, 9 Trading Posts. You start with a United States ally as well; there are two French opponents. You have five decks to choose from (land map so sea wont matter).
There are Objectives to complete, each with Resource Rewards.
In this scenario you cannot ransom your explorer, but you can send additional explorers.
Take minimum average 15 minutes to play; you have 50 minutes to win!
