I understand what you mean about the bridge but it was the only one that fit their without pillars. the capture buildings are just outposts so I doesn't really benefit the player anyway it's just like having an extra farm. The inn on the mountain I think I should get rid of cause, I think i get your point about the unfair advantage you have when you capture it. I'll update the map and see what I can do. Thanks again. how do you make a minimap and sorry if I sound like a noob but whats map.ini?

Edit: Made some changes that Jokuc mentioned and made the paths a bit wider to ensure that the AI uses siege weapons too.

Awesome! Haven't noticed any glitches and the AI is very clever. The often tried to flank me etc. The only problem I noticed was that the AI didn't attack with Siege weapons. I'm not sure why but you should check it out.
The Islands are nearly identical and have access to the same amount of capture points.
Love it! Makes for awesome battles, that are very different form the usual ones.
Map Design: 5
The textures are breathtaking! Better than most EA maps. You managed to use a rich variety of textures and blend them perfectly. A++++
I'll be playing this map a lot. If you manage to fix the AI, the map would be perfect!
I'll make sure to check out and review your other maps.

1. You dont have to change your map cuz of me XD
2. How to make a mini pic of your map:
You must make a pic that is 200px X 200px and save it as YOURMAPNAME_art.tga
3. You'r not nooby cuz you dont know what a map.ini is ^^ dude, your pwning me at map design so dont think you are nooby! you are pro =3
First of all;
a INI is the game file where all codes for the game are like powers, heroes, their cost, buildtime and health etc.
a map.ini is you coding your own gamefile so we say you can make so men can build elf units from their buildings or make aragon cost 90000 you can make whatever you want =D
AND it works online ^^
you can eaven make NEW POWERS and NEW HEROES or NEW UNITS! isnt that cool?!
BUT the coolest thing is that... with a map.ini added to a map you can make that heroes in game have powers from the spell store or new powers you make by yourself =D
everything is possible! it's like coding a mod! but sometimes when you uses map.ini to your map it may go out of synch. BUT ITS SO AWESOME!
omfg dude this comment was like a topic oO
hehe i write too much... btw you can also make something called map.str in short words; you can edit all texts in the game. like editing "word of power" to "click here and die"
or making a long story to your maps etc.
for more info about map.ini and map.str aske me or visit http://www.the3rdage.net
