This campaign is for MP players who long for a campaign that includes all aspects of Emperor. Combat, monument construction, economy, and trade. This is the first public version but it has been tested thoroughly. Please share you comments or suggestions. Enjoy... Kaidel
Well we played this map yesterday and I'm feeling ambivalent.
The events and the mission goals are pretty good imho.
For instance, you can't afford to bribe all the incoming soldiers, 'cause treasury is a pretty important goal.
But it's not like it's the main goal, building the Great Temple Complex takes quite a while too.
I also liked that you had to get weapons from somebody else.
Yet some maps aren't balanced. [b]LINZI[/b] just plain sucks. I think it's smaller then the other maps and the animals are a great annoyance. The Tigers are everywhere.
Except for the weapons, you can make all the rest of the stuff yourself. I like being forced to trade with other cities. I want to have to rely on trade with other cities to gather the other needs.
Though it's really not that much of a problem, just a thing I like seeing. The no iron ore thing was fun enough.
The big problem really was the Linzi map.

The custom MAP for 'Ying' is missing.
The other 7 Player cities use MAPs from original/patched installation, some not used by any other Campaign.
Linzi is the same size as all the other MAPs.
The tiger aggressiveness of Linzi is a minor inconvenience.
Hao and Yong are the only 2 cities that can't produce Steel, everyone can produce Weapons from purchased/begged/produced Steel.
As far as balanced, well life isn't fair. Choose your MAP with care and if your playing with friends the harder MAPs can be played by the better skilled.
