New and Updated Skirmish maps in Delenda Est

(I'll update this thread periodically)

 

Crocodilopolis

Spoiler

 

  • 4 players
  • Based on the natural/artificial lake in Egypt called Lake Moeris, which has been populated for thousands of years. The area is also called the Faiyum Oasis. Crocodilopolis is the ancient Greek name for the Egyptian settlement there. 
  • Map features: A large lake in the middle, with schools of tilapia fish. Many plateaus with evidence of ancient Egyptian and Ptolemaic ruins. Lots of choke points. Open desert lanes along the outer rim of the map.

Hydaspes River

  • 2 players
  • The Hydaspes, aka Jhelum, River in the Punjab of India. Here was the site of the great battle between the Macedonian forces under Alexander the Great and the Indian forces of the king Porus of Paurava.
  • Map features: A broad river bisects the map. Players start with 6 free army tents for a population boost, a free Elephant Archer, a free Indian Dock and a free Indian transport ship for early river crossings. The river is unfordable except for a small ford at the south end of the map.

The area near the Jhelum River can be pretty rocky and hilly. I hope that we can get the Map Resize patch committed so I can enbiggen the map (from the center instead of the bottom left corner) and have room to add some cliffs and rocky areas.

New map, Magadha, is inspired by some gameplay videos I saw on Youtube. I noticed that people play 1v1 matches that tend to be on smaller maps, that kind of just spread resources out over a relatively open map with few choke points. So, this is potentially what an "India" biome map could look like in EA, minus cool stuff like mercenary camps and farmlands of course ;) :
