Story
Thousands of years ago, there was once a great battle. It was fought between four countries. The battle was called Fight of the Forest. But no one knew how it ended, so it's your task to end this battle and you being the victor.

Gameplay
The goal of this map is to exterminate your enemies and be the one and only tuler of the forest!
But, it ain't so easy. Your path to victory is full of tricky decisions and great dangers. And never forget, your foe can be anywhere!

What's so special with this game? Take a look at this list:
  • Realistic soldiers
  • So many upgrades you can't upgrade it all, you have to choose wisely
  • Both land and naval battles
  • Bandit camps
  • Do you wanna play a fast game? Or a balanced game? You choose!
  • Playable and nice terrain

History
You may wonder how I got the idea to create this map. Well, it was kinda rare. I was creating a small terrain map and I searched for good bandit models to add. But instead I found lots of other good models, so I got inspiration. And since my first map (Empire Builder Snacker) was one of the worst map ever created and too bad to fix it, I desided to make a new one.
First version I played with my friend, Ean, was 1.10. And, I have to say, the map is much better than it was then.


Progress
-Terrain - 100%
-Triggers - 100%
-Units & Buildings: 100%
-Upgrades: 100%
-Heroes: 100%
-Items: 75%
-Overall: 95.833%


This is close to release, tell me if it needs more fix or not.

Well...nice map! And here's a suggestion, if you really want to be creative, try making your own Race. I would help, but I'm working on my own map right now.

You could also try making your own items, if you haven't already.
Oh and here's a good idea:

Make secret caves where people can build and grow stronger, or just hide from the enemy.

You should also make custom heroes.

But anyways, keep going with it, I'm sure it will get to be pretty popular, if you do the right things.

Unfortunately, I'm not a good inventor ...

But I'll try, to make this map as innovative as possible!

But the farthest i came, was to make a totally new income system ... and it failed ...

Oh and, Be sure to post screenshots every once in a while so we can see your progress!

If you post screenshots, we could tell you what you could add, maybe decrease, and more!

I don't really play such maps often, so I can't really comment on how the gameplay is.

However, you do need to import DISBTN icons. The imported icons show as green icons when I pause the game.

Also, the descriptions for the units are pretty good, but doesn't give much information about the unit itself. Perhaps you could try separating the tooltip into information and unit stats, with unit stats talking about the health, damage etc.
For example
The cavalier (Latin: xxxxxx), .... An ideal choice for the front ranks.
The cavalier has high health and defense, but only average damage.

Good luck :D

The terrain is so simple you could add a terrain generator.

I'm not really good at terraining, so if I want a really good terrain, I need to recrruit a terrainer to the map team.

I really think you need some more definitive terrain such as a large road or something, both for passage of armies, battles and for aesthetics, the tileset needs some major variation it looks quite boring at the moment. Also, try clumping trees, different desities to create a strategic terrain.

Sorry, this doesn't concern your map much...yet...But on WC3, which Server(Or wahtever it's called) Are you on? I have accounts on multiple servers, and could provide extra ideas for your map.
