The template for this map is actually quite good, but the large placement of resources are an eye sore. Perhaps you could lessen the amount of clumps you have placed around the map?
alekshs I've played the map in GR. The game's flow can be extremely unpredicted-i loved it!
You'll probably get a review for this map,sooner or later.

The major problem with the scenario was the lack of space, so I redid some of the forests and res to allow more room, so the file that should be used is called "Nomadic Asia by Wolfy" and if you see any files called "Nomadic Asia" or "Nomadic Asia V2", they should be discarded.

Now, the major complaints that I've received has to do with the large amount of cliffs I've placed in the mountain regions. This was intentional because I wanted to experience the difficulty of crossing mountain passes to conquer other lands, like what many conquerors would have experienced in medieval warfare when they tried to conquer Asia. Other complaints had to do with the combination of a giant map with a large amount of res, being that the game can drag on for hours. I prefer to play with wonders enabled to speed up the finish, but I find that most players will get very angry toward wonder victories.

It would be nice to make the mini map more eye pleasing, however the aesthetically pleasing countrysides should hopefully make up for that.

My major problem with this map is that, unfortunately, I cannot make the map hacker proof like some more skilled mapmakers. And a very few number of games have been ruined when a hacker exposed his powers.

I've recieved alot of positive feedback, too, most notably that this map allows players to choose an army OR navy civ, unlike most europe/middle earth maps which give advantages to Navy civs.

If anyone really likes the map and wants a fixed placement version, it would be no problem to provide another file in the zipped folder for download. I only made a nomadic version this time because games where you start out on foot or in a transport ship seem to be popular for players who are willing to try a new map on gameranger, especially when advertised as an open diplomacy game with no fixed teams.

Thank you for downloading and any positive or negative feedback is most definitely welcome!

Yes, I play on gameranger frequently under the alias "Wolfy" although I should mention I'm a much better map maker than I am a player! thanks for the kind words.
