How to Host
Map size is not just make the map bigger, but will increase the number of the resources.
Starting resources makes the early game much faster, with lot of quick upgrading.
Explored map helps find resources faster, but it ruins the surprise-effects.
Player's colors don't have to be in numeric order as it's not a scenario.
Players can pick civs or just go random, up to host.
Rest of the options are either irrelevant, or not have any special affect on the game.
Other game types
While Turbo, Regicide and Deathmatch is supported, other game types are not suggested to use.
How does the map work
The map shrink 10 tiles by every 5 minutes from the water. Unevenly, so be aware!
You will take 3 damage (or more) every 5 seconds if you are in the "storm", so run to the mid!
There is no visible effect of the shrink, you can only see it by your health drop when you are in it.
Try not to run blindly into the darkness. With lag you may can't react enough fast to return from the storm.
You can only regen hp while you are unarmed.
You can pick and drop weapons same with relics.
Weapons not change your base hp, but they gives varied other stats.
Gold sources: Gold Stockpile(5), Gold Mine(10), Pile of Gold(15)
You can upgrade your villager in your Pavilion at botton corner of the map.
You can shortcut to it by ctrl+S (go-to blacksmith)
