Gallentine Retired

Author File Description
File Details
Game Version: AoE3
The Sway of Gallentine version 5.3
Running on Patch 1.09

Gallentine is a highly strategic map, much the random type “Island” map, set in NewEgland in 1702. Starting with a lean but tight raiding force aboard the Troubadour, recruited for colonization their commander Reagon has a secret objective in mind only he knows. With an option of landing sites the game play is set for enemy take down if you guess the objective. Very easy INSTALL, UNINSTALL guides for loading a play of “Gallentine” and then getting back to on-line play. With your new war-ship the “Everready” dominate this water map, protecting the shores of your new home land form enemy landings or running sortie deep in to enemy waters. This map has been well playtested by myself and Twoqtimes2 and Pure Albino, and will flow during vigorous game play, with little to no lag (pops bumped up).

Your landing force has been given hitpoint bonus, yet when these units are lost the bonus will be removed.

Abus-gun -not in build list
Pike man


Destroy Rildalm’s dock and take control of the Everready.

Maintaining a dock at the “given” dock location on the Island location for small trickle of funds.

Receive a Covered Wagon on age-up. normal bonus

And many other bonus such as double block training of villagers and stronger “levy”.

Playability: 5
This is a very fun scenario and challenging for the most part of it.
It took me more than 2 hours to finish it.
I had to use a lot of tactics to defend the small island from the purple player.
He was trying to land heavy forces on my island and he used many ships.
The ship battles were great.
Then I used heavy navy force to weaken the purple player by destroying his buildings.
Then it was time for a land party in order to take the purple player out.
After that there was no problem to take the yellow player out.
This map can be played several times.
It has high re-playability.

Balance: 4
The balance was excellent for the most part of the game.
It was hard to take the red and purple players out, as well as defending my base.
However, it was too easy to beat the yellow player.
You probably can give the yellow player more forces in order to make it more challenging.

Creativity: 5
Very creative.
No doubt about it, sziggi is one of the best scenario designers out there.
The map, game play, and story were all great.

Map Design: 5
Very nice map design.
Very unique.
You have to see it for yourself to see what I mean.

Story/Instructions: 5
Great fictional story and the instructions were clear.

Additional Comments:

Another master piece from sziggi.
I had a lot of fun playing this scenario, and I would recommend it to everyone.
Much better than Ensemble’s scenarios.
As I said before, they should hire you sziggi.
Thank you for a very fun scenario.

Hi, if you are running yesterdays version 5.0, I've made a fix to the proto where the correct proto is now there making the modded ship appear. If your not sure well the "Everready" should have a skiff riding piggy back aft.

edit:Dont think I'm making an easy version as this ones pretty managable with the Island separation. Yet may come up with a new strat where you have to be off the Island and have a foot hold on the main land by a certain time.

edit-This map dose not nor dose the custom interface suport difficulty level. This play is set for a hard mod- to hard play and should
be reviewed by such players.

dont thinks so,- do you have any mods? if not just got to the update menue and should bump it up. If you have a proto you've worked on just move it aside and do a cut and paste, don't forget the version in the top of the proto, I think is ten. Gearai, you got any maps for us to play yet.
Gearai sziggi,
May I email you with questions about your response?
I do have a map I have been putting together, however I've not placed any players, or triggers in it yet. Mostly just eyecandy.

Sure mail away, I'd be happy to help.
