New map - Afrika Australis

Recommended Posts

Hi folks!

 

I have designed a new map: Afrika Australis (Southern Africa). It is based on NASA blue marble map series.

The map includes several biomes, ranging from sandy deserts to mountain climate and tropical basin - the biomes are based on https://www.gifex.com/fullsize-en/2010-01-11-11674/Biomes_of_Africa.html.

The natural resource distribution is based on https://www.aljazeera.com/indepth/interactive/2016/10/mapping-africa-natural-resources-161020075811145.html, with most stone occurring on the west and most metal occurring on the east of the continent.

Given the size of the continental shelf, expect brutal continental battles.

Here are some screenshots:

Download the map here: Afrika_Australis.xmlAfrika_Australis.pmp

The map was designed to work with Alpha 24. Let me know what you think of the map! 

Thanks!

Hi guys,

 

Two questions about map making (and Afrika Australis in particular):

 

1.Where do i place the screenshot for the map preview image?

 

2.How do i make the town centers to be general, e.g. not particular to any civ?

 

Thanks!

Hello,

  1. You need to put them in your mod, in the
    art\textures\ui\session\icons\mappreview
  2. You need to use the skirmish entities
