After lurking around for a while, I decided to finally make an account here and show off my own handcrafted map. :)
For some reason I tend to take this old game out atleast once every year. - I guess you know this feeling, heh.
I hope you will have alot of fun playing this mission just as much as I do!
You will build and defend a Metropolis in a very beautiful environment located at the coast of the Mediterranean Sea.
Naturally, in order to emphasize the supremacy of your Great City, you will build not one - but two large Pyramids which will attract travelers from across the known world and even further Beyond. Additionally, you will oversee the construction of a large Obelisk which will contain tales of this great City and make them last for Eternity.
In order to realize this dashing Project, the coast offers you three large masses of fertile land surrounded by ore-rich mountains which will provide all necessary ressources.
Impressed by your ambitious Project and jealous of this raw diamond of land, the Great Persian Empire has declared to contest ownerhsip of this very land in order to construct their own Metropolis. They will untiringly throw wave after wave of their best and most ferocious Warriors at your Defenses from land and from the sea - Be ready when they come!
... Many neighbouring countries are willing to support your Venture and are ready to start Trade immediately.
From time to time they will request certain Goods - Satisfying those may eventually be rewarded generously.
Nice to know:
The invasions will keep you busy atleast 100 years for now, while demands will currently occur only in the first 50 years.
You may or may not struggle with the Persian Armies so I recommend building your forts and ships quite soon.
The first waves will be easy but their number will grow over time.
Feel free to disable the winning conditions and play to your hearts content - like i do ^^
Thats it! :)
Feel free to write a long or short review of this map as I am always fond of Feedback!
I have noticed a small bug in the first two requests. Despite delivering the goods you will at first get a raise for the kingdom rating but after that a smaller reduction. This should actually be connected to a gift...
All that because I missed to check one number. haha
... Anyway, as of now I am getting more and more familiar with the event management.
Looking at the old events in this version I feel like a total noob, heh.
Currently I am writing entirely new event chains with loops and so on. One of those will be a large Event Chain which will be the main focus to ''win'' the mission.

Interesting Map ..downloading.
By the way, I am working also on a Map called "Sharuhen" during the Thutmoses II Expedition to the Levant in 1493 BC. Im curious to see your event line ..

I must admit that my version of Scharuhen won't have any historical connection to the original one.
In fact Sinai isn't known for its fertile land. Also the real Scharuhen wasn't anywhere close the sea as it is here - I simply moved it ''a little'' closer. lol
As for the event chains, it will be totally made up without (as mentioned before) any historical accuracy but hopefully as catchy as possible that it makes you wish it was.
Good to hear that you like the map!
PS.: I have seen your map 'Perwadjyt' and am interested in a coorporation, so we can share ideas and possible realization/balancing of events.

Thats very cool what zoo say, yes we can learn from each other definitely. I have many ideas that are originally from other players. I learned a lot from old Player TRYHARD !! He was godlike when he was playing, god know where he is now to see my new maps. Btw, I have uploaded the first 7 maps of my new Custom Campaign and I wait for Admin Approval, hopefully we can see the new maps in the download section ,soon. :)

I found out that There is no Wild Meat in the Scenario. So Zoo cannot function :-/
