A brand new Michi map script that I wrote specifically for Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition. Includes several biomes with new terrains and animals.
Michi refers to a a style of map where forest completely separates the players, preventing early rushes.
Supports FFA as well as any team compositions (including uneven teams) - just make sure to check the "team together" box in the lobby!
To install, place the "Michi for DE" folder into: C:\Users\YOUR_USERNAME\Games\Age of Empires 2 DE\NUMERIC_USER_ID\mods\local\

Critical update to fix forest generations after they patched the bug I was using
