This map of Constantinople comes complete with 8 players: 4 Saracen invaders, 2 Turk invaders, a Persian sea trader, and a Byzantine defender. The city is geographically accurate and features items such as an aqueduct and a sea chain across the harbor. You might want to check out the trigger on the sea chain as it is possible to destroy it.
As always, feel free to use the map for play, design ideas, or as a starting place for your own scenario building. Have fun!
I always have problems when designing Constantinopel. In this case, you are the master.

A very fine map and very useful for any 14-16th century scenario. The earlier city had ben different, there were some changes after the Crusades. There is, what is strange, no Galata on the map (though some place is left to make it). The famous chain across the bay runs in a slightly wrong direction. On this map it should be placed almost vertically. The idea of making it of a row of relics is not the best one. It would be closer to reality to mark its presence just by a different colour of water (say, thin parallel lines of very dark and of very light water) and to prohibit the passage of enemy vessels by means of triggers.
With the author's permission I would slightly modify the map for one of our scenarios.
