This is the final version of the Wooden Gate Template. Due to several e-mails I received taliking about bugs in the map, I decided to fix it. Now it doesn\'t have any bugs and features Wooden Gates (Sea Gates on land) in several different terrains, except for forests.
Any complains or sugestions should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
This utility is extremely useful, and unlike most of the utilities on the Blacksmith, this one one is one that needs to be kept because it involves map-copying "beta-units." Cesar's "Wooden Gate Template" has the "Sea Gate" unit, that is, well, a wooden gate, placed on all the games terrian, facing in all the four gate directions. With this, you can apply it to your scenarios and do not need to remove bridges under an area of shallows, simply map-copy the gate on the terrain you want, and facing in the direction you want. And you're done! Furthermore, these gates are perfectly aligned with the game's unit tiles! Other "Sea Gate on Land" templates I have seen have the gate placed between tiles, so that when you use it, it will never be equally aligned with your walls, Cesar's are!
Additional Comments: This utility, along with crasher's "MAP TRICKS" and Enrique Orando's "New Units and Objects Template," is a must-have and keep for any scenario designer! This utility easily earns a 5.0.
On a side note to the potentail downloader: The scenario does reminde you to Rename your gates into "Wooden Gates," but I later realised that the game's engine sees "Open Gates" and "Closed Gates" as different units, thus when the gate opens, the name changes back to "Sea Gate." The solution is to loop a seperate trigger that will change the gate's name. Definately worth the download.

the Wooden Gate Template allows you to map copy Sea gates that are on land.
Wooden Gates can be used as Dark/Feudal Age Gates. What I mean is that they can be used as gates for towns/villages that are not advanced enough for stone gates (if you understand what I'm saying) or military camps that are made from wood.
