File Details
Version: The Conquerors
~- Minute and Minuscule Maps -~

This file includes scenarios with the sizes 5x5 ( The smallest mapsize possible), 6x6 and so on to 10x10.

Personally I don't think these scenarios can be of very much use, but go ahead, and be super-creative if you can.

Credits:
David Tombs (aka DiGiT) for creating AoKTS

Lord Basse, for it was only after his publishing of his map-pack that I had the idea in mind, to make an opposite one.

Update: Added 15x15 and 17x17 maps as well.

Damn. I thought I was the only one to have done it. However, this could bring attention to maps of this size to the newer community.

Yeah and this one added 5x5 which I don't think the other one did. I'm not sure was ages ago when I downloaded it.

Thanks for bringing that to attention, Possidon. I had no idea the other one existed. However, Watson's version does include many more templates, including 15x15 and 17x17. The other one features only 6x6 right to 9x9.

Minute and Miniscule Map Sizes is a utility by Watson, known in the forums as The Unconvincing Spook, which includes many Custom map sizes for AOK scaling from the tiniest 5x5 map size yup to an equally small 17x17 size.

This utility isn’t particularly original, the last time I saw a utility that created minute sized maps was back in 2008 and that only included sizes from 6x6 to 9x9. Watson’s file includes sizes from 5x5 to 17x17. Equally Lord Basse created a file in 2007 but that was not for minute map sizes but for sizes spanning from 15x15 to 100x100. This file also shows the power of the custom size scenario to the newer members of AOKH who don’t know about the later files created back in 2008/2007.

Mini Scenarios are funny scenarios because they can be useful and useless at the same time. The most famous mini scenario in the Blacksmith is probably My Fort, My Empire by Lord Basse which is built on a 15x15 map. I haven’t really seen anything built on a map smaller than that. There just isn’t enough space. However these map sizes are great for creating screenshots for things like the Continuous Screenshot Competition in the Scenario & Design Forum. These small scenario can create very funny screenshots and if someone is daring they could probably make a farely decent Arcade scenario if they use the correct triggers.

Additional Comments:
Overall I think that this utility is great. It works perfectly and gives you some fantastic little sizes to play with. Although not too original it can be used to create some fantastic arcade games and screenshots.

Well Done Watson

DJeronimo also interested in having larger maps than 256, i have reduced all the infantry to 0.5 population count and having a boom of units. also i will increase as soon as i have time the armour of infabtry units, because no human player plays them except they are special units, and that's why cavalry should be heavy shock and harassing or raiding large distances. cavalry units are not suited for combat on such small maps. i hope i touched a very old and still very painfull issue and i can not understand why people aren't saying anything about this. many new games already distracted lots of players. i will not critisize antone i just want to have very big maps for the one of the best strategy games ever created. please in a very serious manner help us !!
TheLaughingMule As far as I know, it is not possible to have maps larger than 256, it crashes the game.
DJeronimo i heard that too, but there are 12 Loooooong years i have been waiting for this and i am pretty upset for the lack of vision of those responsible for mainting the life of this wonderfull game. now seroius i am a die hard fan and i don't want to hear excuses from those who should have released this very SMALL modofocation 10 years ago. i hope you understand my point of view
TheLaughingMule Perhaps this discussion should be taken to the AoKH Scenario Design and Modding Forum:
