NewYork

Author File Description

File Details
Climate: Central
Difficulty: Normal
Population goal: 6000
Culture goal: 80
Prosperity goal: 70
Peace goal: 60
Favor goal: 75
Minimap:
This is my first map. It's loosely based on New Jersey, Manhattan & Brooklyn.

There are plenty of trade opportunities are there.
Invasions progressively become bigger. You will have to keep Caesar happy from the start to achieve favor ratings.
Tip: Prepare you military as soon as you can. Just like New York space is at premium so use it wisely.
Bonus point: Create at least one Grand Temple.

Hero123 Looks Great. How many Trade Routes?

There are 4 trade routes(2 sea, 2 land). However, the problem is location for the dock, import resources and export resources. There is no single spot that can work with all of them. Also like in description I mentioned space is at premium so need good planning on where to have residential & industry areas. While all this needs sorting don't forget there are invasion locations too which makes space even more premium.

I hope everyone enjoy playing this map, especially with additional challenge of building at least one grand temple.

This is my first map do please do provide your constructive feedback so that in my future design I can incorporate them & make even more challenging fun maps. I already got an idea for my next map. - Thank you all for downloading & playing it.

marekvazny Salve augustusBoy,
i've played and finished the map. For your first map its pretty solid. Thumbs up for judging space especially.
Some things are little too plentyfull, farmland and fishing is surplus to requirement even without GT to ceres. Economy is little too easy for my liking. Would like rising wages. Currently there is fluctuation up and down, which is just annoying micro.
Favor, there is no starting rank so you cant get favor any way and you will loose 2 favor yearly. Requests are not that plentifull and i had to wait decades with completed city and cheese the salary to gain a little yearly. This needs to be fixed as soon as you can, set at least 5 dn salary or add more requests as they were all fulfilled quite quickly but still left me needing more favor with no way to get it.
Overall solid work, dont be discouraged by the negatives its all learning process and you can update the map to make it more enjoyable. Here is my VOD https://www.twitch.tv/videos/1654517355.

@marekvazny - Thanks for providing feedback. I watch your videos on Youtube and I was honoured that you uploaded your gameplay video there for my map.
Regarding things you mentioned - I'll update this map with few things & reupload here.

I'm creating new desert map in which I have already resolved lots of those issues.
Thanks again.
marekvazny No worries, i'm glad that i played the map. Also great to see that you follow my stuff, i actually have a second channel and propably will make yt exclusive vids for mapmakers. If you update the favor let me know and ill drop a review here. Another thing that was well done was military, many would just add max size attacks but on such a small map the diamonds could have been really hard to deal with. It felt alright as is. Some small maps don't really have any attacks but that's up to the creator.

Playability: 5
Everything works and is tailored to fit things you need.

Balance: 5
Militarily the balance does not feel too difficult or too easy. The attacks are there so you dont divert all money towards civic stuff, good example of how to make military viable on a small map, quite a feat.
Economicaly the mission could be tougher for my tastes the natives just print money. The starting funds are on the low side though, especially on VH.

Ceativity: 5
Nothing entirely novel but at this point its pretty rough to come up with original things with limited editor tools.

Map Design: 5
Map is based on IRL location + everything makes sens from gameplay perspective.

Story/Instructions: 5
Always a 5.

Additional Comments:
I Enjoyed playing the map. Here is my VOD - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ineZn2skiB4&t=61s
marekvazny I posted the review as promised. The procurator might be little too much, going from no favor gain at all to making it trivial imo. :D Maybe set it to engineer or slightly higher. Honestly with more requests it would have been fine unless someone goes into heavy debt all the time.
