Andes v2

Author File Description
Buz Here is version 2 of my Andes map..

Lionness kindly made some suggestions as to how I could improve the original, what else is feedback for!!! However -

Changes in this version:
First up, all water on this map is the Bayou type so you can wade through it.. I chose it as it represents the chocolate colour of the rivers in this region and is more for aesthetic purposes rather than a hindrance..

There are now two trade routes and both have three or four Trading posts depending on the number of players..

Also, depending on the number of players, there are either five or seven native Inca settlements which are placed in a set pattern between the Trade routes and around a small central lake with a special Inca settlement on the small island (that one will always be there)

Players start with normal resources and one silver mine.. there are no other silver mines on the map, however, there are eight gold mines that encircle the central lake, again in a set even pattern..

I have used two forests, an Amazon forest and a Yukon forest spread over the map together with many cliffs and several small shallow ponds (again, Bayou water)
Normal hunting animals, Capybara and Tapir..
The map is set as 'Andes' this time and instead of macaws flying around you get the odd huge condor..

Back to the special Inca settlement -
I placed an Inca temple on the first map which looked out of place.. so this time around I made my own settlement grouping, this settlement is much larger and has the Inca temple contained within it as are trees, more houses, treasures (food, wood and coin) also this is supposed to represent a sacred place and therefore, it has several Inca warriors as well.. the eldars of this settlement may want to forge an alliance, but the young warriors do not. So if you want it you will have to fight for it..

Instructions where to put all the files are in the readme..

Again, any comments would be appreciated..

Enjoy the map,

Have just updated this map as I left the triggers in again and forgot to include the village.xml!!...

It will still play, but you would have to call it 'Mystery of Bare Island'

All fine now ;)
