And to make it even better, replace all the Serpent Fly Hives by Obelisks, and the Dwarf Treasuries by Cyclope Stockpiles (the former give out only crystal, the latter give a balance of resources)

I can make my own modified manifest destiny available for download if you guys want.

I also added a few level 5 units to the garrisons.


yeah,but besides becomin a much better map becomes even a more challenging map than it already is! 8|
anyway make such a modified manifest destiny map and i'll sure give it a try! :D
don't forget to put the download link too!

I also re-arranged a little bit the starting locations and mines to make it so that:

- If a castle has a silo that can produce a rare resource, then a mine producing it won't be adjacent to that castle

- If a castle's Upg. level 7 require a resource but its resource silo produces wood+ore, then a mine producing that resource will be adjacent to that castle.

I also removed the special victory condition (capture all mines? Lame)

The Witch Hut in the middle will always teach Pathfinding. (compensates for the swamp in the overland middle, and Dirt in the underground middle)

Nice work UHO. I'll try it also sometime after finished testing of Yurian's map.
Oh, by the way, could you Pol (or other mod) remove some of my multiple posts on the former page, so that, to leave only one.

Impossible. Anything else and I have no chance of making the Top 10 list.

I do occasionally decide that I need to downgrade, but I at least make the effort to start.

goddamn it!
i'm trying buried treasure scenario on impossibnle and it's a real pain in the neck much more than manifest destiny itself!!
the AI keeps on creating tons and tons of heroes coming from all sides and as soon as i try to conquer a city either is well defended or can't manage to hold it for a few days!
i'v attempted tha rush strategy,but in the scenario all the cities are well defended and if one is lucky one time after that it will be only trouble;the enemy heroes are numberless and always manage to take the most powerful artefacts before me and if i,after having gathered a rather good army ,try to go looking for a city or artefacts to take,far from the initial and only city i lose the city and cheerio!
it's really impossible!!
does anybody ever try that scenario with rampart on impossible?
any hints from somebody that has already won it?

I just played that map on impossible with Rampart/Green. I won easily around month 3.
Only thing to mention, that AI acted stupidly. He attacked me several times, just to run away with his first move.

I can lose a game of Expert if things really don't go so well, but there's really not enough challenge to keep playing. So I play Impossible even though I lose easily most of the time.

The game needs 1 or 2 more levels between those 2.

Expert. Until recently, I always played on Normal, but when I discovered I could beat the AI on Expert, I started using it instead. When things look too grim, I give up and start a new game. That's only happened once, though.

The AI is not, even on expert level, comparable to human players.

I'm baaaaaack!
