Map: map is a large land mass with hills in the north. the south edge is a long coast line which the players start on in boats. land and take the new world. The New world always has 10 setlements with 3 for each team and 2 central ones to capture and fight for. there are also 2 settlements in the montains which provide a strong defensive possition if needed.
It is strongly advised this map is only played 1v1, 2v2 or 3v3.
i hope you all enjoy the map.
map updated: right number of setlements now spawn, however slightly slower load time.
The map was huge and had VERY creative cliffs.
It took a VERY long time to genorate just on large 2 players. But I forgot you could set player starting views. Also there were plenty of resorces and plenty of room to expand. If I could, on a scale of 1-5, I would give you a 5.7. Your random map is awsome! I look forward to seeing more from you.
P.S. You forgot to disable Atlantean starting units.

4 for this ;) The map is actually very good. The resource are placed well; leaving the map open enough for good building space, but still good flanking or raiding opportunities. The settlement placement is alright too, they are far apart from each other in so that you would have to build in between them to control the land.
Some quirks are the ceasefire; there isn't much point for it as no one starts off with any military, and the mainland is about 2cm from you... Also, on the mountains there should be some resource available, not just a settlement.
Overall, the map does come across as quite proffessional actually, and of course very fun.
Good for first try!

Ok so there's a strip of water at the front with nothing really to do with it, so there is no real point to it, the rescources are partially well place but it looks like you had a field day with the hunting, you can nonstop hunt until the mythic age, and say I want to play atlantean... Why am I stuck with norse vilagers and an ox cart, there is also no way you can play this by yourself the comp is too stupid to go in the boat, it also looks like tundra mixed with ghost lake so not that creative and the "defensive settelments" are too choppy to double wall making it a not so good defense area
Sorry but its not that great.
