I initially went with 20 defender points, but I got word form chadz that there are never too many of those for the defender, so I went ahead and put them in up to point 63. Good to hear about the ladders though, because I wasn't sure about that one. Also I'd like to know the devs opinions about sally doors. I notice that Praven's walls already have a sally door placement above the cliff on the left side. I can remove it, make it sealed closed,  or make it a working door.

I updated the repository file for town17 to remove the ladder and the AI mesh which is unnecessary for strategus purposes.

I've started work on town_1 (Sargoth). It might be worth editing the OP to show which towns remain unfinished and haven't been started on yet so that we don't waste time and do the same one?
Maybe you are not bad, but you are a boring person. Well, that's the end of the matter.

The people have spoken their demands, it shall be so.

Giving up a bit quick on me. Can only check the forums so often.
On another note, since the discussion seems to have moved past the "We should do this" to the "We are doing this" stage, perhaps this should be moved to the strat or scene editing forum. Might catch more attention there of people interested in helping.

I'm not giving up,
If you want help, moving this to scene editing is a good plan, Jacko just gave me the impression that you planned to do all the town maps solo. Guess I jumped the gun a bit :P

Took nearly a week to do the first one, next may take longer. Can't even imagine wanting to do every single one. Plus, the more people that make them the more variety there is which is good.

Yeah.. These things take time to edit. I merely pointed to Warcat as he, if someone, seem to be in charge of things..

Anyway, welcome to the team!

Thanks guys, I thought I'd give an update on the new Sargoth;

Before;

After;

Closeup of town layout;

Random pictures;

I only made very minor changes to the actual terrain and tried to keep the original playable area more or less the same, all that changed was one or two original buildings using thier destroyed models instead and no pre-set ramp on the walls. The rest is me trying to follow Warcats example and it's pretty much done except for minor polishing, and I'm not too sure if I should put barriers on all of the roofs or not.  :)

Great job! This is really cool that you guys are doing all this work.
I'm not normal and I don't pretend so, my approach is pretty much a bomb crescendo.
Death is a fun way to pass the time though, several little bullets moving in staccato.
The terror of my reign will live on in infamy, singing when they die like a dead man's symphony.

Towns should be street brawls. if the walls are breached

they are not fortresses like castles

These maps look great. Too bad I suck bad at mapping and hate working with script programs, otherwise, I would make some unbelievable shitty maps. All maps would be defenders spawning in one tower without doors at the top of a hill.

Sargoth looks quite nice.

Don't put any barriers on roofs. Once it gets hit by a catapult buildings will be lowered so that the barriers are off anyway. Either side can bring ladders, and so anything will be able to be reached or lowered with all the siege equipment. I'll update the first post including links. I've busy with other things the past few days, but I'll probably be back to working on Praven soon.

That really depends on the city, many medieval cities were like you said, others like Constantinople had a series of walls and hills so that the outer walls were a small part of the defense.

@warcat, could you pls do Halmar too?
It's very similar to Ichamur, maybe some things could be copyed over to save time, if thats possible.
Btw. great work guys  :D
