Why is territorial time always four hours, regardless of maps?

Would it be worth the trouble to

  • Scale the default time with the map size?

  • Make it possible to override the default in map configuration?

Territorial time has two possibilities to win a game:

"Each player or team tries to obtain more than half of the map’s area. The winner will be the player or the team that is able to keep that area for at least 20 minutes, OR the one with the most territory after 4 hours, whichever comes first."

What I'd really like to do is to have an option for the game time in the game setup for all the win condition. That way, everything could be played as a timed or as an endless game. No fog should also be a separate option.

I have to finish implementing the drop-down boxes firs though before I can even think of starting on that project.

'D like to meet at glacier lake on trial for round 3 in the tournament. Somebody likes too? I've got the impression you are really really great players. Or me is lack of strategy..

Are you sure? I've never played on that map, but it looks for me as it would be pretty good for atlanteans...

Sure? With that one lousy fish pond on the whole isle? I guess I could squash you as Empire and might even succed as Barbarian playing red.

So now watchcat played against me on fire games, she played red and barbarians, I played blue and atlanteans. I won. It turned out that the fish ponds are big enough for atlanteans, and playing red is worse than playing atlanteans there.

As the lack of fish on this map could be a problem for the Empire, I guess that nobody could "squash" me there with that face-wink.png

I guess that map is marked as "unbalanced" for a reason...

Just gave WorldSavior the permission to show the replay of the massacre. face-grin.png

Yep, Atlanteans are not as disadvantaged as I thought on this map. And with much more space blue has great possibilities to develop an economy. Funny thing is that the AI doesn't have the slightest chance to win as blue even when given the advantage of starting as trading outpost. face-smile.png
