    In AD 2XXX, mankind found a new planet where life exists the same as Earth did... except that there is no sign of intelligent beings. Many countries fight to conquer this vast piece of land...

    The Disaster Frontier (TDF) will be a builder-style map where you get to choose many different countries and fight it out to conquer the newly found land. Each player will start at random places decided by the country they want to start at.

    Gameplay
    At the start, there will be 2 modes:

    1. Alien invasion

    Description: Kill the alien in the middle of the map (the alien will be very high tech - watch out!) with all other players. Everyone must co-operate to make this work.

    2. PvP

    Description: Normal builder game. Winning condition is to win as allies or kill off everyone.

    _____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

    There will be farms (territories) that players must attack to gain gold and lumber. Income (lumber&gold) will be given to players every 60 seconds. Income is determined from the number of farms (territories) that each player has. Farms can be upgraded to increase income.

    Also, players can advance through Ages to research new technologies and conquer other players.

    12 countries selectable

    Germany

    Germany have the urgent need to conquer this planet to allow future expansion. They ressurected Adolf Hitler from the dead and use his evil, wicked means to conquer this land.

    4. (ultimate) Holocaust

    Hitler carried out the Holocaust (final solution), which took more than 6million lives.

    Summons a giant box in front of Hitler for 15 seconds. The box (about 5 troop wide and long) will continuously spew out poisonous gases that poisons, slows and decrease attack and defense. +5 sec every level.


    Russia

    Russia have vast amounts of resourses, vast amounts of human resourses but no technological advancements. They came to this planet to get technology to improve their lives. Therefore, they ressurected Josef Stalin to conquer and destroy all other oppositions.

    Starting location: Island 3 (island of ice)

    Hero: Josef Stalin

    Skills:

    1. Communism

    Stalin forced citizens to improve farming methods and by collectivisation.

    Allows Stalin to produce food (10 food). +10 food every level.

    4. (ultimate) 5-year plan

    Stalin initiated the 5-year plan to speed up the industrialisation of the Soviet Union.

    Decreases build time, research time and troop build time by 15% for 5 minutes. +5 minutes every level.

    I would suggest not to add any more of the 'XYZ leader revived' for the other nations.
    What other nations are you planning to implement?

    Oh, I want to make it more epic. Well, if they can fin a habitable island and can use space travel to reach there, why not revive their countries' 'greatest' leaders to help them conquer this piece of land? =)

    Maker, I do not want a laggy, big, crap builder map. unless you can suggest a small sized tree model which looks good for meh =)
