I intend to make my goal in using these maps to create kinder starts and prevent players from becoming agitated in playing with one another. The idea with more resources is so that players can upgrade all their economic upgrades and all of there basic military upgrades without needing to gather any resources in addition. The maps are also designed in mind for playing with the AI that I have created. Better starts, better AI means that Comp Stomps online will always give a certain satisfaction and add a flair to an already old classic game. So I hope to hit it at the core of the issue with requiring limited necessary team-work and letting each player do his own part of strategy.

Please try out these maps with friends and share turns on your computer.
