File Details
Version: The Conquerors
The Kingdom of Astoria. A beautiful city surrounded by high walls and adorned with a grand palace noted for it's royal gardens. Water ways pass through the city and empty out into the sea. The surrounding countryside is vast. A port town welcomes new visitors with it's rich market place and industries. Humble farmers work constantly to bring in the season's harvest. Lumberjack's work tirelessly in a deep forest. Miner's set up camp within a massive mountain to mine it's precious ore. A vast wilderness surrounds the Kingdom with mountain ranges, swampland, and dense forests to explore. Within the capital city, soldiers train hard to become Astoria's finest.

This map took MANNNNNNNY hours (months) to complete. I consider it a masterpiece as far as eye-candy maps go. Every tree and resource was carefully placed to give this map absolute majesty. Every villager is tasked to work and the Kingdom is constantly bustling with activity. You could sit back and watch for hours! Every resource on the map, including wild game respawns to give this map a continuous stream of life. Also, many eye-candy tricks (new and old) were used to further give the Kingdom of Astoria a unique landscape. Also many complicated triggers were used to give units unique tasks that are very entertaining to observe.

I do not mind anyone using elements from this map to enhance their own. I only ask that you please comment and give me feed back. I am looking forward to hearing what everyone thinks of my masterpiece.

Corndawg I have to say that I found this to be very well done when I tested it out. Only 100 triggers and you still managed to make a living, breathing world. I applaud you good sir.

Yes, the map design is indeed very good, and the attention to detail in places was exceptional.

By the way, I moved this file from Single Player Scenarios to Utilities.

excellent map design.

I might use some of your ideas here for my current project - giving you credit of course.
cobalt449 Wow, this map was AMAZING! It definitely deserves the title of a Masterpiece. So much detail packed into a giant map, with every little thing accounted for! My mind was truly blown. Kudos to you, and the many hours you put into making this map. (Although I couldn't help rampaging around the map destroying buildings and killing everyone) :D

Two thumbs up!
orinu This things is great! I especially liked the archery practice. I think this would be very good drop of point for campaign!
stroke can I use this map for my scenario?

'Kingdom of Astoria' is a scenario designed as a utility. It depicts a kingdom on a vast map ( giant map size ).

Rating: 4

Quality: It is of superb quality. Excellent map design, it depicts a rich and powerful kingdom with a big fortified city and some outlying villages in the countryside. The details are excellent, there are pristine forests, swamps, fortified docks, archers and swordsmen practising, prisoners, this map has it all.

Usefulness: It is a good map template to develop a scenario on, unfortunately most people would just want to develop their own map for their story and their scenario. But it is still great inspiration.

Additional Comments:

The sheer beauty and amount of details in this map is awesome, it is worth downloading just for seeing that even if you aren't going to put it to any use.
Linkiejj Its Amazing!
But there is one small problem.
The map is so filled up that I barely can get a idea of what to do with this..
commanze Wow, this is amazing! Actually, i am making a scenario like this. What program did you use in making units, like the practice dummy?
