"Stronghold 2" is a medieval city-building and battle-tactics strategy game by Firefly Studios. The game offers a variety of game-play modes, ranging from pacifistic town-management to historically accurate battle sequences. "Stronghold 2" also features a map editor in which environments and campaigns can be modified or created from scratch. If you're creating a "Stronghold 2" map intended as a battlefield, an important element of that map is inserting enemies into positions from which to attack the player.
Choose "Map Editor" from the main menu of "Stronghold 2," then pick "Skirmish" to create a battle-focused map.
Click the "Estate" icon (a red flag). Click on the map to place estates throughout. Each estate is controlled by a hostile rival.
Click the "Keep" icon (a stone castle). Assign at least one keep to each estate; this is where enemy soldiers are generated.
Complete your map by adding any terrain or natural features you wish, then click the "Save" button. Name your map, and hit "OK."
Load your map by selecting "Kingmaker" from the game's main menu. Select "Custom" and double-click the name of your map. Choose which estate you wish your troops to start from; all other estates will be held by computer-controlled enemies.
Tips & Warnings
- Your map can also be loaded in multiplayer mode, in which case rival territories will be held by other humans. (If you have more estates than players, the remaining estates will still be held by the computer). To play your map in multiplayer mode, choose it from the list of available maps while hosting a multiplayer lobby.
