Sea of Rhun

Author File Description

File Details
ROTWK Map: Yes
Number of Players: 2
One Ring: No
AI: No
Minimap:
Hi again, this is my 3rd map, this time I went for a diffrent style, sea battle, the reason is there are no sea battle maps in the game (I mean a map where you have to use a boat to attack and its not optional) the main problem is I'm not sure if the AI works entirely in that kind of map so I marked that as a no, it didn't attack me for a while so I assumed it won't but if anyone sees it does let me know.

Its still suitable for MP so if you like sea battle try it out.

The map itself is the sea of rhun, north of mordor, and far east in the map of middle earth, textures are rhun, sea texture I couldn't manage changing so its default, had a problem with waves too so in this version they don't quite work.
The shape of the sea resembeles the shape of the sea of rhun, and according to the map, north east is the forest next to the sea, and south west are the red mountains.

Again, if you want to see something changed or improved let me know, have fun.

Update:
Had couple of lairs set to wrong faction, fixed. newer version uploaded.

NEW VERSION:
Sea texture fixed, waves added, minimap revised (Thanks to puppeteer ^^) added island in the middle to balance it out, have fun.

The Puppeteer Like the idea of having to use boats, though yes unfortunately AI don't work using them.
If you would like to learn more about mapping, for example the wave tool and finding out how to add better lake tool textures then join Istari Productions. Become an apprentice and someone good will teach you, (Nordic Soldier, Notorius, Pasidon, Dre@mer etc.)

It's a fun map to play on, just short of addicting.

Balance: 5
It seems very well balanced, with neither side having a noteworthy advantage over the other.

Creativity: 4
The concept of the map (sea wars) isn't incredibly creative, but using an actual place from Middle Earth as well as a few surprises (e.g. the spiders on the bottom left island) gives it an original feel.

Map Design: 4.5
The huge amount of water gets a little bland. Perhaps a small island toward the center of the map to break up the large stretch of water?

Story/Instructions: 5
I don't have a whole lot to comment on in this category; the description of the map provides a good amount of detail.

Additional Comments:
This is a good map; I highly recommend it to anyone looking for naval warfare.

I really like this map. It was fun and added an extra challenge to the game.

Balance: 5
Perfect, although I'm not sure why the shipwrights were in different places on the map.

Creativity: 5
As Aeneas said, sea battles are old news, but I think this map made it seem awesome and fun again.

Map Design: 5
Creative in the outsides, and if you're the Dwarves or Goblins (as I was :p) it was awesome to use the mines to different islands. I must tell you, I freaked out when that giant hill troll attacked me. That made the game for me. :D

Story/Instructions: 5
N/A. I'll give you a 5. ;)

Additional Comments:
Well done on this map, this is a new favorite for me. :)

Glad you enjoyed it :) thanks for the review
nickwalker12 I actually had an identical Idea for this kind of map. Its almost identical to yours, only a LOT less aesthetics. I built it for gameplay, and like yours the ai didnt work.

Great map.
