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.
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.
