New Historical Battle : Battle of Issus

Post by rikoargatha » Fri Sep 21, 2018 1:12 pm

The Battle of Issus occurred in southern Anatolia, on November 5, 333 BC between the Hellenic League led by Alexander the Great and the Achaemenid Empire, led by Darius III, in the second great battle of Alexander's conquest of Asia. The invading Macedonian troops defeated Persia. After the Hellenic League soundly defeated the Persian satraps of Asia Minor (led by Greek mercenary Memnon of Rhodes) at the Battle of the Granicus, Darius took personal command of his army. He gathered reinforcements and led his men in a surprise march behind the Hellenic advance to cut their line of supply. This forced Alexander to countermarch, setting the stage for the battle near the mouth of the Pinarus River and the town of Issus.

Hi, tis is my first post in this Forum - I'm playing this fantastic game since one year an i started creating Maps.

For the Moment i'm working on a medieval campaign. Meanwhile i also made a playable map of the Battle of Issus for the historic battles section. I hope you like it :D I inserted some triggers - the gameplay nearly works like the historic template.

When i try to send the Draft to the developer by longclicking on the map the game crushes. How can I send you this??????

Here is a screenshot:

Maybe i will try to make some others from Alexander the Great's campaign.

Regards

Thank you - I love to to make the maps more detailed.

Like in the historic setting the persian Cavalry on the right flank is pressing down Aleksanders weak left flank with General Parmenion. The Main idea is to hold this flank while Aleksander and his heavy cavalry slaughters the mass infrantry in the north as fast as possible. If Aleksander meets King Dareus III the supply buildings will disappear. Its your decision to write history - Whitch way do you choose? Do you slaughter the persian Infrantie in the north with the Cavalry or do you march in the middle with the phalanx and Aleksanders Centurion benefit? The Phalanx really works with the Hoplites, Slingers Skirmishers and Chariots...



But: When i try to send the Draft to the developer by longclicking on the map the game crushes. How can I send you this??????

Okay - i send it to the market - Draft name is: Aleksanders Conquest: The Battle of Issus.

I tested it several times - maybe it needs some balancing/fine tuning, or a setup with this ancient units like peletasts and so on. If you integrate them into the map maker i can try this.
