Linebattle Map Pack

Griffith's Linebattle Map Pack

A long time ago I made a bunch of maps for use in linebattles. They are essentially random maps that I saved for repeated use. All of these maps have artillery enabled and are for the Battle game mode. They are a custom size that is exactly between medium and large random map size and work perfectly for events of up to 200 players. All of the maps would be keepers if you were just generating randoms for an event. The best part is they are all 3kb and swap as quickly as a generated random. There are 60 in total. There are 10 of each of the following; Plains, Steppe, Desert, Snow, Desert Forest, Plains Forest. Some Examples are below.

Desert

Snow

Steppe

Plains Forest

In addition I made 13 custom maps that are essentially just random maps where I added some extra things to make it interesting. When I first helped start the Old Guard Linebattle we used these for our 3rd maps. These maps are larger in-game than the others. They also average around 30kb in file size. The screenshots now reflect the order of the maps in the download.

Some of these maps have been used in a few different events over the years. I updated a few of them and some are brand new. I hope this will help any event hosts who are sick of cycling through generated randoms for 5 minutes or more to find a good one. The Screenshots do not do them justice. Download and try them out yourself and use the ones you like.

In the attached file there will be 2 folders; one with the custom maps and one with the normal ones, also a readme file. If you do not how to change maps on your server look at the readme file.

*edit* Custom Map 9 has been patched. Rooftop and stair bugs fixed. The screenshots now reflect the order of the maps in the download.

I would definitely recommend these to any event hosts.

They are the right balance for line battles with infantry, skirms, cav, and arty. They were used consistently for a long time in one of the most popular and well organized events NA has had.

Definitely take a look!

These maps look amazing! I'll be personally downloading them for use in the Wednesday Line Only Event. Cheers!

Will make sure to bring these back for the Ode to the IV Korps linebattle, the spiritual successor of the legendary IV Korps linebattle!

Great package, we will use some of them for our linebattle, I already told our admin to download and choose a map for the event today.
Thanks for your efforts, it is very appreciated.
„Im Verein mit den Mir verbündeten Herrschern hatte ich unseren Feinden vorgeschlagen, alsbald in Friedensverhandlungen einzutreten. Die Feinde haben Meinen Vorschlag abgelehnt. Ihr Machthunger will Deutschlands Vernichtung. Der Krieg nimmt seinen Fortgang! Vor Gott und der Menschheit fällt den feindlichen Regierungen allein die schwere Verantwortung für alle weiteren furchtbaren Opfer zu, die Mein Wille euch hat ersparen wollen. In der gerechten Empörung über der Feinde anmaßenden Frevel, in dem Willen, unsere heiligsten Güter zu verteidigen und dem Vaterlande eine glückliche Zukunft zu sichern, werdet ihr zu Stahl werden. Unsere Feinde haben die von Mir angebotene Verständigung nicht gewollt. Mit Gottes Hilfe werden unsere Waffen sie dazu zwingen!“ gez. Wilhelm, I. R.

I just did a quick fix to Custom Map 9 and renamed the files so that the custom map screenshots now match their corresponding number in the map pack download.
