Sahara is my second ever RMS Script made via RMS Creator. It is a vast desert with lots of plam trees and a couple of extra surprises in.
This is version two. I have completely remade the whole map from scratch and I am hoping it is better. If you like you can ask here or email me to get the old one back if you perfer it. I have removed all of the beach terrain, added things like Mountains and individual Palm Trees, and added more elevation.
This scenario doesn't have any relics which will create a bigger challenge for gold and will make the game more like a conquest so the computer AI won't capture them and win. This RMS also has Regicide Support.
A group of settlers have been stranded in the great desert and have to build a lifestyle and survive the deadly sands. However they are not the only people building on the sandy desert, there are other settlers too. You must build an army quickly enough to defeat the other settlers or befriend them so you can live and give civilization to the dry sands of the Sahara Desert.

Sahara is similar to arabia: a desert with resources in isolated places. This makes capturing them a priority for any player. The trees often generate fairly narrow walkways, so outmaneuvering the enemy is unlikely in some places. That said, the wide open dunes give plenty of space.
Unfortunately, lakes and grass have been placed in the middle of a desert, more frequently than an oasis could be likely.
Visual Appeal: 2
The map is fairly poor visually, with water on elevation. The map was very good in places, however in others it looked rushed. More care is needed to fix this horrendous bug.
The script generates perfectly enjoyable maps, as the resource-wars are terrific fun. The idea of having to make a lumber camp at the start is a novel touch, and delays the players, giving faster ones the advantage.
The scarcity of resources make aging up slow, drawing out rushes in feudal and castle age.
Sahara is a decent random map, spoiled by unsightly water with elevation. Other than that, this is not too bad at all, but too similar to arabia for comfort.

Just follow it all. it's pretty simple. Just make sure everything adds up top 100 or less.
