Lesser Ring


A fair 8-player map with natural geographic features dividing land. The geographic features are meant to be somewhat realistic with rivers flowing from glaciers in the mountains through hills and flatlands into the sea. Gold is a much rarer resource compared to coal and iron. Different resources are often found at some distance to each other.

Lesser ring is a fair 8-player map with ring-shaped landmass and sea. It features:

  • 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.

Some notes:

  • There is seafearing, but it is not a dominant aspect.
  • License is GPLv2 or later.



The map looks interesting, but the seafaring would not work. Ships cannot pass where a road can. So there are many ports, like the one between the black and orange player, or the one in the lake in the violet player's land, that do not have water connections to absolutely anywhere.


Sorry, this was an omission when updating the map for the current version of widelands. With my two babies, I since only found time to test-play with human players on the other side of the mountain. And the AI doesn't complain about unfair distribution of port building locations. I'll fix it.



I fixed the port space issue in an update:
