Version: The Conquerors
MFO@RandomArabia by MFO@Mapster

The MFO@Mapster team announces the release of another random map script, MFO@RandomArabia. While our heroes at Ensemble Studios created some great and interesting scripts, including the base idea for this script, Arabia, playing the same map can become very repetitive. Our new script tries to overcome this problem by introducing a set of 20 randomly selected terrain patterns for the basic Arabia script, instead of the two current random choices. The basic map has not been changed. Arabia remains wide open with the same percentage of forested land, and gameplay is identical. However, the map may randomly have jungle, pine forest, bamboo or another type of forest. For each of the 20 terrain patterns, there are preselected base terrains, primary and secondary forests, various terrain patches and appropriate animals.

Can you picture an Arabia map with jungle as forest and turkeys, jaguars and macaws roaming the map? Or with pine forest and a few patches of snow and snow forest like the original Mongolia map? How about Arabia with stands of bamboo and forest? How about with a tropical look? Or a green pine forested Arabia? Look at the maps this script generates for these examples and more!

So how does this script change gameplay? Not at all. The pattern of land and forest and resource distribution is exactly like the original Arabia.

The random chances of the many terrains appearing:
5/20 terrain types have primary forest as Oak Forest
5/20 terrain types have primary forest as Jungle
5/20 terrain types have primary forest as Pine Forest
2/20 terrain types have primary forest as Palm Desert
2/20 terrain types have primary forest as Bamboo
1/20 terrain types have primary forest as Snow Forest

There are various combinations of secondary forests, green grass or brown dirt or desert terrains. Five patterns use each of jaguars, turkeys, macaws and javelinas, though not all are together. Only one of the 20 patterns has snow as the main or base terrain, and one other has a limited amount of snow and snow forest similar to the standard Mongolia map.

For those who are interested in scripting details, this script also introduces a very different and efficient method of defining and selecting these terrain patterns and in creating the associated unique fauna and trees. Download the script and check it out!

The only real changes in these scripts besides the various terrains are as follows:

-In Arabia, with the Frozen terrain pattern the random ponds will be frozen over.

Come and try this new script! Don't be bored with the same old Arabia, download the MFO@RandomArabia! We are also including a version without snow (summer) in the same download.

We have also made a version of Random Land Map called MFO@RandomMap, plus versions of the other component maps of the Random Map setting. See the download listing for these.
