Walls of Troy

Author File Description
Thrim
File Details
Difficulty: Titan
Number of episodes: 10
Minimap:
In this scenario, you must defend the city of Troy against the combined might of Mycenae, their centaur allies, and hostile gods. You begin at a substantial economic, technological, and military disadvantage. However, you do have the benefit of favorable terrain and logistics. This is a difficult scenario, depending on your choice of colonies. Mission goals at Hattusas and Smirna can be accomplished quickly and easily. Ephesus and Halicarnassos are more difficult, but will prove stronger allies in the long run.

A detailed walkthrough is included with the scenario, as well as maps of completed cities. Experienced gamers who choose not to read the walkthrough can be successful if they build and plan strategically, and concentrate force during military operations.

If you get thrown into "open play" after episode one, copy the "Walls of Troy.pak" file directly into the Zeus/Adventure folder (so there will be two copies of the file, the original and the copy).

Well there is no bug so far ,but in the second episode the land slide would be better if it happen in the beginning so player don't have to wait. This game will take most of the time waiting for some even or some quest to happen.

Balance: 4
The map is very balance a little challenge but it will have some way to solve the problem.

Most of the first half of the adventure presented interesting challenges. The second half became a repetitive taxation on my patiences, like an old scratched-up LP, hissing and skipping.

Balance: 3
The excessive food gifts was a theme that reduced challenge. The repetition within each episode, and between episodes in the laterial episodes was too predictable.

Creativity: 3
Repetition distracted from the some of the good eliments you had going.

Map Design: 5
I truely liked all the Maps and thought the monster timing was a gem of an idea.

Story/Instructions: 4
Nice storyline and it included a walkthrough that showed the designers intent; though I found different approaches.

Additional Comments:
I didn't encounter any of the major problems in this discussion. I unsuccessfully tried to reproduce the problems on 2 computers.

Despite the sometimes crippling awkwardness of certain timed-events, the scenario is still highly playable and affords the player more time to build than might usually be taken.

Balance: 5
Not precisely sure what balance is, but if it is ease of play against challenge, I'd say the map is a good balance, especially in colony stages.

Creativity: 4
I enjoyed entering the map to see the ruins of Troy. I altered the pathways and such, but it is still a very creative layout.

Map Design: 3
I knocked a point, simply because the Heli colony layout bugged the heck out of me. Four sanctuaries on such a divided land, as well as the hoplite requirement, seemed a little too unrealistic. Then again, it's the stage I'm currently on, so I might be wrong.

Story/Instructions: 4
As I said, I applaud the story and the fact it is not something I have come across, I find the plot delectable. Trying to recover after I recently aided the destruction of Troy in another scenario? Fantastic!

Additional Comments:
On the date of this posting (08/25/12) I found no issue with the landslide/olive events, and I play in Win7. I've enjoyed the scenario, and simply hope the creator will continue making scenarios.

I like the fact that you need to wait for some events in order proceed to the next levels. You get the chance to fight some good battles at the beginning of the adventure.

Balance: 5
Game is pretty balanced. If you avoid the difficult colonies, you will have an easy time playing colony maps, but things will get rough in your parent city afterwards because you will receive less resources as tribute.
The huge amount of food gifts is the only thing that I found unbalanced.

Creativity: 5
I like the fact that you depend on the others in order to achieve your goals.

Map Design: 5
Simply beautiful! So large! I like that you can surround your city with walls, first time I ever do that! I like the 2 small wood islands how you can manage them with just 1 MO/island.
