The map "Unknown"


Recommended Posts

"Unknown"

The map "Unknown" is a random map that countain 9 "Land" maps and 4 "Naval" maps.
When this map is played, one of these map is picked randomly and generated.

Some of these maps are not part of the list of random maps and can't be purposly choosed to be played.
So i tryed to make a map pack where each map can be played independently.

Map list :

Land :
"Continent" :
    Game description : Disk shaped mainland with water on the edge.
    More info : Map close to the random map called "Continent", slight difference the map can be shaped as a peninsula.

Ah, custom map flags, we need you!!! :-)

By the way Edwarf. One should be able to remove the undesirable turtly maps: Lowlands, Passes and Isthmus and backport it to a23.

Was one of the ideas I had in mind, make balanced unknown maps, but the code isn't too friendly for that.

I think if we remove those undesirable maps unknown finally might be a good map for TG (maybe the best).

Badosu, i agree, it could be great to have balanced unknwon maps.

But i think only Passes is a turtly map. 

Lowland is a race to the map control and being able to keep it.

This Isthmus is really wide it is not more turtly than gulf especially with the map variant were there is random shaped land in both sea parts.

And some poeple loves turtly maps :P.

The best would be to chose the desired map pool to fit everybody.
