Alexander the Great 1.06

Had two interesting weeks, working and testing Alexander, which is an 2009 old made map. I think that now it offers an optimal challenge, with a lot of cool options. Here is what is new:

First of all, a new outfit for options. As I don't see why a player would choose something more difficult, I took care so every hard option will offer an unique bonus, beside a penalty.

Alexander specialty was changed from logistic (how boring) to archery + bonus. All AI armies were accorded to the new parameters.

Immortal cost is now 10 gems/10k gold and every gem mine was removed from map. However a new option let you upgrade the mystical gardens, but at an army cost.

Every general has now itw own battles counter. For every 50 battles he wins, a 10 tiles bonus is added. For the entire faction, one of the hard options offers a bonus of +1 speed for each 100 battles won.

Various locations were improved, bonuses are ok, without being overpowered.

Battles have now their own historical description, in which I suggest how to win in a subtle way Sm Also the towns description was improved.

I believe that the game is far more interesting when playing with hard options, and is totally winnable. There is still a 12 months time limit because I hate the freeze game bug, but I always finished it in 7 months and I am not super fast.

And not last but indeed last, the link Sm

    Valery, very nice pictures, looks astonishing 132. I can't wait to start playing it, but finish TEW III has most priority. Btw, don't expect any records, 1st playthrough is a slow one so I can enjoy every little thing in a map and find every trifle that will help me on doing records Ab.
    Bes, не забудь обновить TEW IV, там до сих пор вторая версия, в то время как Валерий уже давно выпустил пятую.

Don't worry about speed, it is not the goal. I myself tested it with 5/6 of the hard options and won by month 7, without hurry. The option "invaders move twice" is possibly doable but I don't have the patience to test with, as turns would take up to one hour. The setup is done in such way that you can combine easy with hard and get game more fun.

About tew 4 version, I didn't yet send both tew3 and tew4 updated to mapsforheroes so no one has them (except you cuz you were playing)

Now that I am done, I will send them next days.

Had to upload it again, small change, same link.

Mystical garden first upgrade is set to 5+5 instead of 0+5 so you get +10 gems as soon as you leave your first 100 infantry inside.
(screens from main post are incorrect, mystical gardens give +5 to each upgrade, not +10. With +10 I ended the test with 6600 gems, way too generous)

Ok, following the nice advices of 3BeP (probably russian guy) in HC, I released 1.06 with nightmare option now giving both penalties and bonuses.

Alexander the Great 1.06

Changes to nightmare:

Penalty/bonus
3 princesses with irresistible charms, they can upgrade a lot of things.
Gold mines can be upgraded
And other small fixes to fit the new difficulty parameters.
