Earth Scenario

Post by Choicerer » April 3rd, 2018, 1:52 pm

6 player map of Planet Earth with a team for each continent. It can be played with a variety of set-ups - FFA, 2v2v2, 3v3, it's designed to work and be quite balanced in all those cases.

Shallow water terrain connects the continents, all units pay only 0.5 mp cost to enter a shallow water hex. This makes the map play quite quickly and emphasises land battles over sea battles more on a map which already has a great deal of water.
Units can cross from the Eastern Hemisphere to the Western and vice versa by moving onto the appropriate edge hexes.
City names and label colours will change dynamically depending on who controls them.

Thanks to Freeciv, who I'd acquired the base map from and thanks to NoneSensei aka enclave and others for the feedback and suggestions.

The map is available both on the 1.13 and 1.12 server.

I've been discussing another version of this mod with other players that would include ships instead of units getting high movement on shallow water.

1.1 fixes two bugs:
label bug - labels will now properly adjust colours on village capture if a side chooses a colour different that the preset one.
scroll bug - map will scroll to the unit crossing the pacific for this unit's side ONLY.
