History of the scenario making :
This scenario has been made with the idea of mixing more balance points than random maps, and design.

Design :
The main idea was a desert, more clean for the eyes and less over-saturated for an original design while adding a shade of grass land in the desert to show all the best kind of design the game could give, the second idea was then to implement this grass lands like an oasis would do in the desert around water, but using waterfalls and a twisted river surrounded by vegetables among which we can feel the shade between dried desert and breathing life.

Balance, buffed and debuffed units :

Stone age :
- Clubmen buff : Persian or Greek villagers don't have any move speed, hp or armor bonus, it's easier for stone age clubmen to harass opponent.

Tool age :
- Slingers debuff : Players start the game with less stone.

Bronze age :
Archery range units debuff :
- Overpowered chariot archers removed from games.
- Composite bowmen restricted.
- Persian or Greek archers have less range.

Infantry buff :
- Foot units are harder to kite with ranged units.
- Camels can now give a better defense for Infantry against cavalry in every game.

- Villagers capacity of runing away from enemies debuffed with the removal of wheel for a more realist effect.

- Number of priests restricted.

08/12/19 v1b2 patch notes :

-The mirror towers have been replaced by shang heavy elephants that can not attack their enemies enclosed in fortifications (kill them to unlock composite archers).

-To prevent players from deleting their enemies forests with wall foundation, all the stone has been removed except the 5 stone mines closer to the persian bases.

09/24/19 v1c patch notes :

- For the 2v2, macedonian's archery range are disabled and Hoplites are prohibited, killing heavy elephants will unlock Hoplites.

I will upload a new 2v2 file then I will rework this one to be 1v1 by removing yellow, brown and their respective king gazellas. (done 09/25/19)

12/10/19 v1E patch notes for all versions :

- King gazella removed due to randomness factor when we prefer having the tame lion roaming.

- To balance the 3 fishes out on the red side, Red now has 3 gazellas at the same spot as the 3 inner Blue's fishes and Blue has 3 gazellas at the same spot as the 3 outer Red's fishes (The tame lion can't attack the gazellas).

- The single pine trees around the river have been slightly enhanced with 2 other tree types.

- Prohibited technologies are now properly written for Brown and Yellow ,they cant build Government centers and Temple.

-The brown and Yellow's restricted unit is now Broad swords but they can have up to 20 Broad swords death before losing unless they killed the opposite corner Carthaginian Elephants, It could open interesting door on new strategies such as the choice between using the 20 broad swords card and following with hoplites or keeping the Roman short swordsmen flow.

The corner Bot has a stable, a siege workshop, a dock and 3 houses, instead of being a Yamato recreating 1 scouts, It's a Iron age Shang recreating 1 Stone thrower & 1 camel, the Shangs Bot start the game with infinite gold.

06/25/20 v1R patch notes for all versions :

-In the 1v1 the slots 7 & 8 are shang and can be used for spectating as they have a blind and lame priest on a cliff.

- 1 mid map-berry field out of 3 has been removed from each side, it's now a small swamp with 7 fishes.

- there was a bit more wood and +2 berries on the red side starting point so the blue side now has +2 berries and a bit more wood.

-The Babylonian computer now has infinite gold to buff their long swords, so the long sword will cost approximately 50 food ( bothering to convert this unit that was 25% more expansive than a broad sword and 25% more powerful vs melees but weaker vs archers was not that worth).The Babylonian computer now also has a heavy transport to land the chariots and will upgrade scythe chariot with a stable if you tribute it 1200 wood. -2 houses.

In the 2v2 :

-The Yellow and Brown markets aren't destroyed at the gamer start anymore, instead there is a new market puzzle on the new swamparea allowing you to get combo upgrades from the tool age depending on your strategy.

- Brown & Yellow now start the game with -5 villagers in their village but start the game with 4 fishing ships. +2 fishes on the Temple puzzle.

- Slots 7&8 can NOT be used to spectate by miming actively the computers action since they would discover the market puzzle. Use slots 5&6 + miming.

- Brown & Yellow granaries are now prohibited technologies.

06/26/20 v1R2 for all versions :

- Keeping 1600 wood in bank was too expensive to get your 4 chariots become scythe, Babylonian bots now start the game with 600 base wood so it costs you only 800 wood to get the scythe upgrade.

06/30/20 v1R3 for all versions :

09/09/20 v1T3 for 1v1 only:
- closing the walls at the temple puzzle since the lion can impact it, and the buildings need to be more protected, keep in mind that units can spawn through.
