Version: Age of Kings
Style: Build and Destroy
Number of players: 8 players
Hello! This is my first map and I think it has a lot of potential. The map is best played with 8 players. Also I am new to this forum and posting maps so any critique will gladly accepted. If you find anything in-balanced just remind me and I will try to fix it. All technologies are available to every nation but not all of them will have the same resources. I didn't add the same amount of resources to different nations because of historical accuracy. Also, I did not understand what the modpack thing was so I did not include it. I did not understand what the style was either but. Generally you will have have to build your base and fight the Entente or the Central Powers that's why I put it to Build and Destroy. Enjoy!

It's a good idea, but the problem with this map is that you should have designed a template of Europe with all the main players. It's a bit more work but the end result is always worth it. I'm also a little confused as to why you chose "the Spanish" over "the Italians", who actually did feature in the war.

@Mashek Thank you for paying attention to my post! First, I chose the Spanish over the Italians because the Italians changed sides halfway through the war. Second, about the template. Yes, I have thought of making a template of Europe but I decided that players such as the Spanish or the Turkish would have far less land than the Russians or Germans.

That still doesn't explain why you chose the Spanish! Despite suffering horrendous casualties and earning a bad reputation, both in fighting ability and trustworthiness, the Italians still fought in the war! The Spanish did not. I can understand the question over land for each player, but that's why you select a larger map size. Alternatively focusing on a certain theatre of the war might be better, such as a combined design focusing on the Western and Eastern Front, while leaving out the Southern Front in the Balkans and Turkey. This would still allow for Austria-Hungary and Russia to feature. The map as it currently stands is quite basic and on par with a random map. A multiplayer RP should always do more to immerse the player in the era or setting you are trying to convey, as that is essentially what an RP is all about. Please don't take any of this as negative criticism, as I wouldn't comment if I didn't care.

Oh no. I never took your criticism as negative. You're trying to help me improve :). This was my first map and I had no clue on how to start. I will try to make another map but I will give it more effects. Also I could change the Spanish to the Italians. Thank either way! I shall continue on further fixing the map.

No worries. Please visit our Scenario Design forum where you might like to partake in some of the discussions there about designing or playing some of the games at the Blacksmith. Many designers there are more than willing to part with their knowledge to help others improve. I could also point you in the direction of some really top rated RPs that might fuel your creativity.
