This is a very realistic base map of the British Isles. I would like to host games where people can download this from you to play on the zone. Singleplayer also : No

Considering this is more of a "MP Template" map, I'll rate it like a utility.

Pros-

This map is fairly accurate as well as fairly big---in the end, this is mainly what matters. You have alot of playing space on a uniquely shaped map, with the added intrest of playing on a familiar continent. There are also plenty of resources, so you don't have to waste your own time placing them yourself.

Cons-

The map is mishaped in some spots---i.e., Ireland is a square. It appears that the author took the map and just flat out streched it---giving it a strange, otherworldly look in some spots. Also, the amount of resources is ridiculous; you can't start a game right off the bat. Of course, one could easily just carve their own spots, but it would have been nice if the author gave us his own. Lastly, the map is useless as a template, but that doesn't effect the score.

Alltogether-

Good/Great map. When it comes down to it, you've got a uniquely shaped map on a large setting, with resources to go. That's really all that matters when you're going to play maps like these. Problem is, the author spent way-hay-hay too much time applying resources, turning the map into a crammed mess. You're going to have to edit the map after downloading. The map also has some accuracy issues which sort of delude you from thinking that you're playing on Britan, which is the highlight of the map. Overall, worth downloading and taking a look at, if you're intrested in a MP britan match. Or something like that anyways.
