Map: Archipelago Sea 1.1

Archipelago Sea 1.1

Description:

Between Sweden and Finland lies the archipelago sea. This place of incredible beauty is not land, and it is not sea, but it is both. Within a few hundred kilometers, there are no less than 50,000 islands and islets, most no more than a few acres across. The climate is quite mild for its latitude; farming thrives, berries are abundant, and fish plentiful. The small human population of this place never knew famine. You warlording bastards just couldn’t leave this little paradise in peace, could you?

Hint:

Large plots are rare on those small islands. Prioritize construction of large buildings on them. Sometimes you will need big military buildings to expand all the way to the next island. The AI will perform poorly.

Comment by uploader:

playtesting done during the 2016 tournament revealed that the archipelago sea map was unbalanced. while resources and building spaces were equally allocated, red player had too few large spaces close by, and needed an inordinate amount of towers to connect all the islands over the largest stretches of sea. green and yellow instead had way too little trees around their starting position, and too little land to grow them.

this updated version of the map attempts to fix this inequality while leaving everything else - both the balance and the aesthetics - the same. It's probably still not 100% fair, but definitely a step up over the original
