The Old Wars

Author File Description
Stefan Beneke
File Details
No. of Players: 2-4
that´s my first scenario , but i think it´s really good! 2-4 Players Size:Large? i can´t say more than : destroy them all. that´s a first version of this level so please report bugs or suggestions to : stefanbeneke@nwn.de. There is an map (st1.bmp) in the Zip-File , if you want to use it , just put it in your AoE-directory. The *.*.cpn-file has to be put into directory :...\AoE\ campaign. Sorry for the bad English! (I am German). Goodbye - Stefan (what´s that in English?)das ist mein erstes level , aber ich denke es ist richtig gut. 2-4 Spieler Größe:Groß? ich kann nich mehr sagen als : zerstör sie alle. Das ist die erste Version dieses Levels also hätte ich gerne Rückmeldung bei Bugs oder Vorschlägen : stefanbeneke@nwn.de. Ich habe noch ein Kartenfile im Archiv (st1.bmp) , wenn du es benutzen willst , (ent)pack es nur in dein AoE-Verzeichnis. Das *.*.cpn-file mus in das Verzeichnis : ...\AoE\capaign (ent)gepackt werden. Tschau Stefan Beneke

Style: Build and Destroy
Players: 2-4
Map: Coastal map with rivers/streams throughout

Playability: 1
I believe that this is more suited to a single player scenario, and would explain why three players are allied and have huge starting resources. As a multiplayer scenario it is unplayable.

Balance: 1
Three players are allied against player 1, and all have huge starting resources in comparison.

Creativity: 2
The coastal and river features look okay, and the bitmap kind of explains some of the story. The instructions are mostly in German.

Map Design: 4
The map design is actually quite good, in that the resources are well spread, trees are used in several locations as "coastal walls" and a particular location for gold requires a transport (and is therefore potentially easy to guard).

Story/Instructions: 2
The instructions are in German, although a very brief "destroy them all" type instruction is given in English. It may be that this has been uploaded to the multiplayer section in error, but without speaking German I cannot be certain.

Additional Comments:
This is worth downloading purely from a design perspective. Check the placement of trees around the southern player's town, and the access required to obtain the gold in the north (just east of player 1). From a multiplayer aspect - NO!
