Any Freebuild Maps?

Recommended Posts

Has anyone around here made any freebuild maps for Stronghold 3? If so it'd be great if some could be added to the downloads section on this site. I just had a browse through and it looks like there are none here currently. I'm a fan of freebuild but was getting a bit tired of the original 4 in the game, and let's be honest some of the landscapes on those 4 maps don't look very natural...

 

I know there's plenty of talented map-makers in the Stronghold community so I'm sure someone out there has made one or two. :)

I've found a few Freebuild maps at this link, do let me know if you like any and I'll upload them here as well.

Ah thanks I'll have a look. That site wasn't working for me yesterday but it seems ok now.

Hey, today I'm going to be busy, but I have one map which Lord Vetka created for me. I will check in the download section if he has submitted it to Downloads section, and if not - I would submit it on his behalf. Or, if Chris has a better solution I would send him the map by email.

 

I think he hasn't submitted it, I will check it, but this isn't actually a free build map. I'd rather say it's an easy invasion map with beautiful landscapes on which you could chill. :) Actually there are two maps he created and sent me - one where you start on a hill, I think it is some coastal area, and the other where you're in a valley, there is also some cave on that map.

 

If anyone is in contact with Lord Vetka, please say him hi, and tell him that we miss him here. :(

Thanks EaglePrince. Both of those maps sound interesting, if you do find them it would be great if you could upload the two!

Here are the maps.

Brukner

Eagles Lair

But be aware that I am sending you all versions that I have. There is one version of Eagles Lair in which I think I wasn't able to build armory (it was disabled by mistake), and in some version of the map I think that the lord wasn't able to leave the keep, and that was because of terrain.

 

Now we shall wait for Chris to tell us what's going to be the best thing to do with those maps, and when we submit them to downloads section I am going to remove those download links. :)

You're welcome. :)

 

Oh, and one more thing - on these maps you can only build wooden walls, and stuff like that. I really like that aspect of Stronghold 3, so I was asking Lord Vetka to make it like that, but you should be able to easily enable more buildings if you want, including stone structures.

Thanks. Actually I don't know if I could enable other buildings, because I don't think the Mac version has the map editor :P

The map editor needs to be downloaded separately. When you install the game, the map editor is not downloaded too, I think you should be able to find it within tools, or something like that. :)

 

EDIT: Yeah, that's right - in the Library I have a category Tools, and there I can find both Stronghold 3 and Crusader 2 map editors.

      Hey there, I thought this might be an interesting thread to have.   I shall start with the latest scenario Jacob's Ford submitted by Korsfarer Mogens. Jacob's Ford was supposed to be a stronghold near Jordan river. However, it was short-lived, because Crusaders there were defeated by Saladin. Korsfarer Mogens wrote much more about the history. In this scenario you are supposed to try to finish Jacob's Ford and to defend it against Saladin.   This is an interesting scenario. I tried it two times

    • Feedback thread for maps created by odisseus

      During the last few days I've submitted three maps for Stronghold 1 and they haven't been approved as of this moment. If my maps are deficient in some way, I would very much like to know, as I try to make them non-trivial and reasonably challenging.   I mean, how many symmetrical castles are already out there? How many castles surrounded by impassable terrain everywhere except the gate? I think we already have enough of this, and I try to make something unusual.   Then again, my skills at the g

    • Binary format of Stronghold and Crusader maps

      Is there any information available about the binary structure of maps for Stronghold 1 or Crusader, besides instructions on how to change the troops color?   I'm going to try to create a program for generating map templates (custom sizes, custom starting height, perhaps even landscape from heightmap). However, I have absolutely no experience in analyzing binary files, so any relevant information could save me a lot of work.

    • Alternate Transylvania? (and other alternate campaign maps?)

      Ok so I am playing the evil campaign; I made it to Transylvania and I put it on Easy mode: (the one to the left?). Now I have looked at a few strategy guides; even videos that show it played out but, I am seeing something much different then what the videos show. In this level there are 3 castles 2 North and 1 South. It is suggested that I take the one that is South. In the video it shows a mounted catapult and a decent number of archers in the south castle. But when I play: I see no catapult, t

    • Sending custom maps in stronghold crusader HD

      Hello all!, I'm having a problem with custom maps. I have owned the original stronghold series since it's launch back in 1999 (i think). I bought Stronghold crusader on steam as me and my family were having problems connecting using the original disks and steam made it easy for multiplayer. I made a custom map today as i had not done so in ages and if i remember rightly when someone who didn't have the map wanted to play you could hit a button and the map would automatically be sent to their com
