It's not a bad try, but for some odd reason we receive a lot of blacksmiths in GAIA across the map.

The theme of this Random Map is Japan. It’s not very original because I have seen quite a few oriental maps. However it does look Oriental. There is use of bamboo forest and broken fungus road Due to this I have decided not to give this category a mark of one but give it a low 2.

Visual Appeal: 1
The Random Map might look like an oriental Map but it still doesn’t look very nice. It only uses Bamboo Forest, Road Fungus, Dirt and Grass. None these are mixed together so they look badly done. The Random Map also uses no Elevation so the Maps are all flat and dull. There were also no cliffs. The part that I think spoilt the Map Design the most were the GAIA Blacksmiths that scattered the Map. They completely spoilt the map design and made it look strange.

Playability: 2
The extensive use of Bamboo Forest lowers the playability score because the bamboo fills over half of the map and makes it hard to travel through and you don’t have much space to build in. The Blacksmiths also take up much of the remaining room. Apart from the wood from the bamboo the other resources are placed quite well in little groups but there aren’t many of them and they are quite far away from your starting place.

Additional Comments:
Overall this RMS is quite good for a beginners map but I could be made a lot better by adding terrain mixing, elevation and removing all of the Blacksmiths.

OtmShankIiI Hi dementor,

I too suffered from that problem from the blacksmiths. The problem is actually quite simple - one of your objects has either set_gaia_object_only missing or has a typo in it. You should check your script for this. Another possibility could be this:

create_terrain Road, mossy

Random Map Scripts are case-sensitive with definitions, and one thing to be taken to mind is that spaces are not considered in a name - instead, they are used to separate a definition from another. The ideal would be as follows:

create_terrain ROAD_MOSSY

Also,

base_terrain BAMBOO

Isn't that a bit too excessive?
