Medieval Knights IV
This is the fourth and final installment of my Medieval Knights map series. (of which I havent published all)
Medieval Knights has always been an RTS map with heavy focus on (more or less) realistic combat and base construction, as well as army composition and positioning.
I started working on this map exactly 3 days ago and I worked for, probably about 12 hours on it. Its not final yet, but its playable.
- Customized resource gathering:
- Gold can be gathered at villages which need to be conquered.
- You can invest gold at the market to get more gold back later.
- Gold can be exchanged for Lumber.
- Lumber can be harvested from rocks, trees and farms which you can build.
- Customized base construction:
- There are fixed towns with indestructible walls around them.
- Each town has room for 16 buildings.
- Each town can have up to 3 gates which can be opened and closed at your will.
- Military buildings and farms can be build outside of town.
- Balanced and specialized combat units:
- Archers can miss moving targets or hit a different unit if several are moving close together.
- Archers deal very little damage to structures.
- Cavalry is faster then all other units but less powerful.
- Catapults need to set up before they can attack. While set up they can not move.
- Air travel via zeppelin.
- Sea travel via transport ships.
- When a player is defeated he becomes allied with the opponent who destroyed his last town. The defeated player gets to play a hero and has no longer the chance to conquer a town for himself.

(A neutral village. A village can be conquered to collect gold from it)
