Jubal's Maps
« on: January 22, 2011, 07:56:36 PM »
Here's all the maps I've made for 0 A.D., for your use and enjoyment.

To Install
Go to your 0AD folder, then go binaries -> data -> mods -> public. Then unzip public.zip, go to maps -> scenarios in the new unzipped file structure, and paste 'em there then unzip. You should be able to reach them ingame by selecting "All Maps" under the map filter when starting a game.

On Ubuntu, your 0ad folder will be buried in /usr/share/games/0ad. It won't have the maps/scenarios folders, so open up Nautilus as root (Alt+F2, gksudo nautilus) and enter your password, then navigate to /usr/share/games/0ad/mods/public and create a folder called 'maps' (without quotes) then inside that make one called 'scenarios' (without quotes). Then put your map files in there, and access them the same as above.

Jubal's Maps Pack for A13 Maghada:
This contains Barcania II, Colonia, Epidaurum, Nova Isla, and From the Mountains to the Sea in one pack:

Individual maps for Alpha 13:
Barcania II
This stormy-looking island map contains huge potential - a swathe of rugged inland forest cuts off an athenian, a carthaginian, and a briton village. Around the edges of the island, cliffs and coves bring huge potential for sheltered bases and ports, with the starting villages sheltering a few peninsulae or islands accessible only by muddy tracks. Barcania II updated with new factions as above (the original had 2x Hellenes, 1x Celts):

Colonia
A carthaginian colony is founded on the Celtic/Iberian coast - but the locals aren't going to give up without a fight! Carthage, Celts, and Iberians struggle over a central valley on a resource-rich and rugged map.

Epidaurum
The map is actually based on the modern coastline (Cavtat in Croatia) and so bears no relation to Roman/Greek Epidaurum except the name and location basis. Three Greek villages (Macedonian, Athenian, Spartan) in two bays fight it out on the Illyrian coastline for supremacy - both on land and on the water.

From the Mountains to the Sea
A classic multiplayer designed map for one Gaul and one Athenian player. The Greeks start on an island, the Celts in the rugged and wild mountain regions of the map. The vast majority of the resources are clustered along the wide and almost indefensible coast, filled with light forests, marshes, and flat coastal plains. Whichever side controls the resources is more open to assault either from land or sea... the war is about to begin.

Himalaya
Years after Alexander's retreat, it seemed as if the Macedonians had barely left anything in the Himalayan foothills near India. In fact, some of them had never left... 1v1 Macedon VS Mauryans.

Nova Isla
For two players; greeks versus celts on an island. includes rough mountainous hills in the west, sweeping woods and grasslands in the east, marshes in the NE, and other such nice features. Pretty fun; a third player is there, for testing purposes mostly, and consists of a few shipwrecked sailors.

How about a short tut for adding maps?

You impress me Jubal. They look really nice.

You might even suggest them to the 0 A.D. team.

To bad I can't try them out right now.

A fourth has been begun, this one's more designed around being a good 2P-MP-playable map.

Hopefully, not the Grassy Flatlands balanced type map  ;)

Good luck, I look forward to playing in it

As a preview, it'll be entitled "From the Mountains to the Sea". Essentially the premise is that the Greek player is on an island on one side of the map, the Celt player in mountains on the other, and the resources are for the most part along the open and almost indefensible coastline.  :)

Nice idea, although the balancing for the both islands will be hard. Best luck for you

A few pics wouldn't hurt *whistles*

Oh lord, that looks SWEET! I'm guessing that some of your inspiration came from a map in AoM? (can't remember the name though)

Uploaded.  :)

Gotta say, I really really want to playtest this map sometime. Anyone likely to be free this weekend?
