Minimap:
This scenario is based on the premise of a long-abandoned city discovered by scouts. Your mission is to rebuild it to magnificent splendour.

I would rate this as extremely challenging up to intermediate level players (like me!).

All the resources you need are there, but this is an abandoned and over-grown place; some assets will not be easily found. You may have to endure multiple re-starts!

If you take on this challenge you are in for a very long (and hopefully enjoyable) game.

This scenario is fully tested.

As the author said the map has been tested and it took me a few tries to complete it. I have the gist on how to complete it, just the last invasions kinda threw you off guard...

Balance: 4
If you are familiar with building a mega sized city then you know where the money comes from. If anything, the scale of the invasions AND the timing of the local invasions should be toned down abit in my opinion.

Creativity: 4
Not sure if intended or not but the maze entry makes it really slow for peasants to start coming in. Doesn't really matter much in the end, but the beginning of the game players should take note of it.

Map Design: 4
Maybe allow two docks area? I find it really makes things alot smoother especially at the beginning.

Story/Instructions: 5
I don't really care much about this huehuehue...

100 criteria for all, the map could have been cleaner but at this stage, spamming buildings like academies and temples is just for the sake of reaching 100 culture. I just wanted to complete the game before the favor drops down again.

Also hint for players trying to reach 50k pop, try to plan out how many housing / palace blocks you need. Palace needs THREE food sources and one of them are quite limited.

Thanks for taking the time to give my map a review.
All of the design features that you mention were put in place to make the scenario more challenging.
No mention of whether you actually enjoyed the map or not! I hope you did.
sasa86 haha if it isn't enjoyable i wouldn't strive to build a 50k pop city

i think i played some of your earlier large pop maps before but i never really posted a review, maybe after the new augustus patch i'll go revisit them too

Thanks again for your comments and I am delighted you enjoyed the map. I am not looking for critical acclaim just the knowledge that people do or don't like the scenarios I make. As you already mentioned I do much prefer the very big population cities, and as long as people seem to like them then I will continue to upload one from time to time.
