Author File Description
File Details
Version: The Conquerors 1.0c
Just a small, highly detailed desert city/town for use in any kind of desert campaign I guess...

Highly detailed... I don't think so. You should make it more like a real city, and add more GAIA-others objects. They make the map much more good-looking. Also some palms inside the city.
But I like the guardpost with the sharpshooter. Not very hard to create, but very effective. You could need more than one if it was a battlemap.

Since when do you get palms in the desert?

There is water in the desert town, the natural environment for palm trees. ;) There is even a harbor, probably a river, not realistic for a desert town and bamboo, flowers, fields?
fuzzydude45 Yeah, It could use more design to it sorry, I have to agree with Tanneur99 as wall, FLOWERS! C'mon, Did you even look over this? darn, I don't know about a monastary in the desert either but whatever.

Edit: I took a shot at a desert theme becuase this inspired me,

Not a very bad attempt for making this map, the entrance of the city was okay but there is not very much eyecandy and the city is a bit small, although the dock looked nice with the river inside the town
Additional Comments:
this isnt too bad but you must work on eyecandy and make it a bit more detailed to make it good

There is no spoone-

Fattybryce May I ask what eyecandy is
is it meaning that it is good to look at?

Eyecandy is stuff that looks nice basically. Its making very realistic or just highly detailed stuff in the map. A very easy eyecandy is to put signs inside cities or on roads so they look more realistic, or make walkable forests. Others are mixed elevations and mixed terrain.
So, yes you're right
Rating: 2.5

My first rating, so likely to screw it up, lol. Ok, there was one great thing, and one really bad thing about this town.

Good thing: You worked hard on the cliffs and elevation surrounding the city to make it look good. A little more work on that, combined with being in the center of the map, would have given this file a 3.

Bad thing(s): Put it in the center of the map, so people can decide what part of the town they want to keep, then paste it into whatever place they want. It is also obvious to me that you spent little or no time looking at other "desert cities" before making your own. I could find a hundred better cities in the AOK Campaigns. I can tell you spent time placing gaia, but you placed the wrong gaia, and it looks goofy instead of good. The best way to refine your work is to look at others work to learn.

This gets a 2.5 instead of a 1 only because the cliffs and elevation are well done and could be very useful for a city in the corner of a desert map (however rare it may be).

But don't get discouraged, try try again.
