Deforestation of Felwood v2.1.1
Submitted by Alok
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
This is a unique forest map where players have to expand their logging empire and destroy the competition. Players start with 5 Woodcutters, a Kodo Mill, a Scout and 120 lumber, and can choose to expand in a number of ways in order to destroy their opponents. The starting locations are orderly random and there is a huge forest at the disposal to build and support your base and attack the enemies. The map has two custom races with unique mechanics based on orcs/goblins and gnolls/kobolds respectively, and their technology and magic. There are also Qrh'qrc, the map's boss who drops a resource needed for the construction of one of the buildings which unlocks new powerful units and who can win you the game in an instant, Wywyr who randomly roams the woods and players can get control of her and her powers temporarily and wild Kodo Beasts which can be captured. The main resource is lumber and it is used for making almost everything, and Seeds of Qrh'qrc replace gold and are used for the construction of the most powerful units and buildings. It is recommended to play this map with 12 players (6v6), but you can also play it with any other available number and combination of players. Some of the possible strategies and tips on how to play can be found in the Strategies & Tips info quest in-game.
- Play as one of the two unique custom races with extended techtrees
- Lumber as the main resource
- Unique game mechanics and unit mechanics and synergies

- Dynamic map environment that affects units and gameplay - weather changes and randomly generated neutral units
- Strategic gameplay
- Build bases with formidable defenses
- Superweapons and abilities that can be cast anywhere on the map with unlimited range
And much, much more...
This map is another version of my map Deforestation. The map layout is completely changed, and thus the gameplay too. This map is much larger, trees do not cover it completely and the terrain has height variation. The map is specially designed to provide many strategic aspects. Other aspects of the map, like the custom races, were changed too to fit the new map layout and gameplay, and there are also some additions. The number of players has been increased too to the maximum 12, as the map is huge. However, this map has no AI and it won't have it.
