Asian lands is a random map where players start with 2 town centers, 5 villagers, and 1 scout. The Asian feel is given by the use of bamboo forests.
The theme is obvious in the map, but it was not designed very well. For starters, the bamboo forests are way too big but can also start a good distance from the players. However, besides the bamboo, there is little that suggests this Asian theme. There aren't even single bamboo stalks scattered through the map.
Visual Appeal: 2
Very little terrain mixing. The terrain around the players is Dirt3, the terrain between players is Grass3, and the rest of the map is taken up by bamboo. There are no single trees scattered through the map, making the visual appeal very plain. There is no elevation.
The resources are all there, but the forests can be very far away, since there are very few clumps of bamboo. Other resources are available and close by, but many players will have troubles collecting wood.
Try decreasing the land_percent of the player lands and decreasing the land_percent of the bamboo forests. Add single bamboo trees and other trees throughout the map to make it more interesting. Add more terrain mixing. Test out your map some more and add some more to it to make it feel Asian.
