This is a Beta Paintball style map that is a RM file. It can ONLY BE USED FOR MULTIPLAYER! A CP does not have good enough AI to do anything on this map.
This map was designed as an alternative to the bulky HDD space hogs of ordinary paintball maps. This map does not contain any triggers, and randomizes on a limited forest theme with gaia units to be found for reinforcements.
The only units available are Hand Cannoneers and monks. (And kings, see below) There are a few wolves on the map to provide some hazards, but they do not stand much of a chance to a hand cannoneer.
Do not crowd the map. Only the largest map size should have all 8 players. Tiny and small maps can experience excessive crowding due to the randomization of the forest, but should still be playable.
For ultimate gameplay, choose Post-Iron Age and Regicide. This map will make Kings when Regicide is selected for the map gameplay style.
Again, this map is ment as a test for this style of RMS. Please feel free to post any CONSTRUCTIVE criticism about this map. "This sucks" is not a valid comment, sorry. I already have plans to make more of these maps, but I am first looking for community feedback before making them.
I have decided to change my view on the suggested map size vs # of players. You can safely play with all 8 on a tiny map, but gaia reinforcements may be limited by crowding.
The limiter of this style of map is you are very limited as to the maximum size of your army, so play with care!
Thanks in advance to all those who have downloaded this map and also to those who provide me with feedback.

Good for a quick multiplayer carnage :)
My suggestion: I don't know why you chose cannoneers and monks, but I think it would be more fun with a variety of units, let's say 3-4 types; and even better, unit types should be randomized, so that you get different units at each game!
Also randomize climate... add some harder challenge like iron boars... there's much work to do :)

I can do that with future versions of this same basic theme. Don't know how quickly I will be able to get them up, because the main comp Im using has been down for a week already... Probably a bad motherboard.
