Just made these.

Now these can be in the map to make it more authentic and a few more maps can even be made.

Kind of, I actually did a UV unwrap and just made it very small below the N, it's going to be all blue anyway. The problem still exists for other images and it's a big problem trying to figure out what hidden parts are in an image and which ones don't have it.

The map I was thinking of would be a carbon copy of AOE 2's Black forest. There would be two small irregularly shaped clearings in dense trees on either side with a single small choke in the middle in 1v1. In team, each team would be connected together, and there would be 1 passage through to the other team.

The map would have okay hunt, two medium herds of deer in each player's clearing, as well as 3 silver mines. The only other resources outside of each player's clearings would be the trees, of course. Each player would start with 1 extra wood and gold crate. There would only a few beaver treasures around the map, and other else. The trees should be fairly dense, being difficult for a unit to walk through. I would imagine that this map would use the Carolina Tile Set.

The size of a clearing would be a good size, being able to fit a moderately sized base. If you have any questions feel free to ask!


How do I make a map work on vanilla? Is there something like initializing tad civs that doesn't allow it in your RM1 folder? I will do that stuff at some point. :) Added to queue


Im not totally sure. I would ask rikkipu if u can't figure it out cause he made some ESOC maps for Nilla.

Hey Durokan, I have a question regarding the use of these neat maps you're doing. Can I use them in my mod? I'd take care of crediting you and the person with the idea. I'd most likely do heavy terrain and native modifications anyway (which would consequently also result in a renaming of the map).

Yeah sure, you (or anyone) is free to use anything they want. All that is required is a comment somewhere in the .xs and a line in the .xml file saying the stuff down below when the map loads, assuming that does not break immersion. If you don't have any scripter's names in the xml to make it flow better then I guess it would not be required.

Anyone should feel free to use any maps I have/will release without asking as long as that requirement is met, though I enjoy knowing if my maps are being used. :) You can change them as much as you want as well. As far as the .xml goes it doesn't have to be exactly what I put, just make it reasonable.

All others must include my name in the .xml unless it would be less than optimal for a game mod.


This goes in .xs without exception

//Original Map by Durokan

Drop this (or something like it) in .xml for all maps unless it breaks the immersion of a mod.

If you decide not to make my name visible when the map loads, then this is required somewhere in the .xml

Hey Durokan.
I have got an idea for another map.
-Do you make more maps per person or only 1 map per person?

I make as many maps as I have time for. I will get to all maps eventually, but just be warned that it wont be very quick. I have 2 maps ahead of you that I haven't finished and i've known about them for almost a week.

Nile River.
This map scales dynamically, its pretty fun. It is split up into 2 sections, dry and wet. The wet area has lots of lush trees, hunts, and treasures, while the dry area has arid trees and gold mines.
It supports all amounts of players. Please report bugs and changes etc

Yeah, it doesnt say it in the map download space but the link to it from the navigation bar does mention that it is 1v1 obs only.

Also what is your next idea?

I was thinking about a map in which hunts and mines will be close to the TC.
-I am still not sure if tp on the middle map is better or native posts.
-The map is going to feature defending advantage over rush civs who have lame rush (russia, otto, sioux, aztec).

So, i have few questions about some possibilities which only this map will feature compared to other maps:

1. Is it possible to remove the wall from being builded in that specific map only?
2. Is it possible to put fully fattened sheeps/goats on the map as in the scenario editor?
3. Can you make the map to have the same age II mercs everytime it spawns? (some maps spawn with the same mercs i think)..

I don't know how to set the mercs to be the same, but if you linked the files to a map that does then i could do that. I don't know how to disable walls, but it is possible to run a trade route or an ice patch through a section of stuff that you dont want walled. Remember it helps me alot if you use the template and give me a complete post. What you have here wont help me make the map.

I am going to post paint made picture from the map or make the map in scenario and send you the file scenario 18-19 hours from now since i havent yet decided about the trade route stuff.
-Also, is it possible players to start with more buildings from the start (except being able to start with saloon, market, plantantions, livestock pen)..Is it possible the game to start with built native post/trade post for both sides?

I don't know how to give starting posts. That might honestly be better suited for a scenario; but once again, if you find another map with that i can replicate it.

Theoretically you could start with any additional buildings, i'd just need to figure out what they are called.

Trade post can be given by simply doing +200w since trading posts are the best possible investment of wood anywyas.

just tagging you


I have finished the nile river, please tell me what you think. :)
I tried to stay within your specifications, but I wasnt exactly clear on the map image. I only have 2 different areas, lush and barren. This is due to the fact that the screenshot had a grey area and a green area with a tan area in between. The tan area was never described so i just threw it in with the desert.

Jerom's point is that 200w of TP is worth more than two shrines, a blockhouse or a village.

Hey you, I've got alot of stuff done. I have some questions though. Specifically, the line of "The map would have okay hunt, two medium herds of deer in each player's clearing, (...) The only other resources outside of each player's clearings would be the trees, of course."

What exactly does this mean? Clarify how many hunts you want and whether the "okay hunt" is separate hunts from "two medium herds." I interpreted it as I have, it seems that each player will have exactly 2 herds, or 16 hunts in total. This is what I have interpreted by okay hunt, two herds, no resources outside clearings except for trees.

Here is a progress pic.

The map works for all game sizes currently, it does a star shape when ffa is selected

Working on making your maps nilla compatible as I wait for these changes.

Hey, your maps now work on vanilla. Will upload both tad and nilla versions for black forest as soon as you get back to me about the hunts.

"green pass Nilla" has been added to the original link for green mountain pass in addition to the tad version.

Here are some screenshots of the maps in nilla

Looks good, but i think that black forest could probably use maybe another hunt in base, but a little farther out. Also i think the main choke could be a more consricted, like maybe the width of 2 full-length wall segments. Other than that, these look absolutely amazing. That you so much!
