Early Warning is a new random map script designed as an "anti-flushing" map. Each player starts with an inner ring of 5 towers and an outer ring of 6 outposts. Obviously, without walls this map is not that hard to rush in comparison to Fortress. However, the outposts give warning of and the towers protection from any early attack, making an early Feudal Age attack more difficult (or challanging, depending on your mind-set). This should give players a little more opportunity to use other than the fastest civs.
The map contains slightly more than usual food(deer and boar) and slightly less forest than the Arabia map, with other resources pretty standard. The script will randomly vary between Frozen, Desert, Alpine, Asian, Tropical and Forest maps, with appropriate fauna.
