MFO@CoveTwo by MFO@Mapster

MFO@Cove was the first and one of the most popular of Mapster's releases. Shortly after its release we became aware of a few problems, though, and this revision is designed to fix them.

Cove includes a central sea with the land not quite forming a circle around it. The two players at the ends of the semicircle have better access to water and fishing, the other players have better access to land and forest, as well as some of the extra resources. Although a nice map for any purpose, Cove seems especially suited for team play with 4, 6, or 8 players.

The following problems were noted on the original. First, there was sometimes such crowding of forest and resources around the TCs of the end players that important resources were not placed. Second, sometimes with higher player numbers the end players ended up on islands or tiny peninsulas, again with some resources missing. Third, on one of the variable terrains the boars did not place correctly. Fourth, in response to player suggestions we reduced the total number of boars to 3 per player. CoveTwo seems to correct all of these problems. The end players do have less nearby land than the inland players, but this is by design and is compensated by their access to water for fishing.

dragon14 This is a very awesome map, more people should play it. even ffa works here.
really love the variation in start
dragon14 I realize this is old, but I wanted to say this is my favorite custom map. also, cove's geography comes out different, with medit lakes, two small lakes.. very good for even ffa, would be interested in a nomad version that included all that randomness.
