Survival Style: discussion & map collection

Introduction:
Hey Community!
Several Months ago I joined a map with and by a player named EMPIRE-commander. It was an empty map with only one big road you could use. The rest to work with was in the storehouse and that was literally almost nothing. Well, so going for growing ressources and marketplace was the deal. Also holding the population low got a point. I got close to the idea of working with low material income and the forced Marketplace use. Also following the units and counting the food felt very nice. Also i want to mention the changed focus on growing ressources.
I imagined this in an arranged map to complete the RPG feeling, so I tried it and recieved very positive resonance by testers and spectators.
Thats why i decided to give this a startup, a shape, a name and a platform. Collecting maps will hopefully also be an usage of this topic.
The content is below. Just one more thing: Don't take everything as too fix. This is also a discussion topic. Mention anything.
Greetings,
Mux

Name:
Survival Style

Definition:
- Marketplace has to play a big role from the beginning.
- Fish, Trees, Coalfields, Stonehills, Iron and Gold may exist only in an amount that gives little pushes.
- Starting Materials must be very limited. This also means gold and food.
- Some Materials to trade should be in the storehouse
- The map really should be somehow catchy
- Players shall be able to make tactical decisions
- No dynamic scripts (should it be kept like that?)

Examples:

This is an starting situation on "Bloodline"
survivalreplay.zip

A try out replay on the 1on1 map "Welcome to the Jungle" but without peacetime. This map is for very advanced. To get the idea of what this is about ingame.

Gamespeed/Peacetime:
Things happen slowly, so the playflow on speed 2x at peacetime feels "normal". Map-specific recommendations for peacetime are good since the situation can vary alot. But in case you feel weak just try out to build up, and see until when you want to be secured.

Re: Survival Style: discussion & map collection

I just played Bloodline today and I gotta say that it's really great! I like that idea! It's something different, forces player to think in another way :)

About adding scripts to it - I don't think anything is needed. It's good as it is :)

Re: Survival Style: discussion & map collection

I once had this idea for a single player map. However, I don't think it will work for multiplayer. You can just do the calculations before you start the game... It will be the same every time.

Just as any other MP game is "the same". Yeah, once you do some calculations, you can find the most effective path do build your economy and follow it every time, but still there should be at least few builds you can choose. At that one game I saw Scout spam, Lances+Bows, Axe Fighters spam, Axe Fighters+Bows, all small armies, which are forced by survival nature of the map.
