Dear widelands players, recently I created my first widelands map. I have attempted to create an interesting, large (256x256), balanced 8-player map; some playtesting against the AI did not show any major problems; in particular, AI players seem to be able to make good progress on the map.

It can be found at

Here's the minimap:

The map is based on the following aspects wanted to see in it:

  • Somewhat realistic division of geography - rivers flow glaciers in the mountains through hills and finally plains to the sea.
  • Somewhat realistic distribution of resources: Different resources often found at some distance to each other.
  • Gold is valuable, and thus rare, especially in the early game.
  • There are places of strategic importance, such as river crossings, that military action focuses on.


P.S.: bbcode doesn't seem to work for me in the preview, I hope this turns out ok in the post.
