      The Guild 2 – Renaissance England-Map



      Introduction:

      After a while of hard work I managed to finish this map. Originally I planned to release it together with Patch 4.21. But sadly I had to quit it, because other problems and bugs had to be changed, fixed and tested. On the other hand, I already added a new map to the game, which made this decision a bit easier for me.



      But now about the England-Map:

      I created the England-Map after I was talking with one of our betatesters about the map size of the England-based maps in this game (have a look at Britannia for example which as well was one of the mayor reasons I created this map).

      For me, Britannia is too small and does not offer as much building areas as other maps. Therefore my main goal for the England-Map was creating a big town with enough space for all of your buildings. On the other hand, I decided adding another village: Norwich. Norwich is a small village which, by no other means, has the potential to evolve to a small town in a few years. Well, if a few investors can be found which are willing to pay for this evolvement. To allow this, I gave Norwich much more space than other „normal“ villages have in this game.

      Well, let’s talk about London. Here the king reigns about England. Well… a bit. Because of personal reasons, I did not give London the level „Imperial Capital“ right from the start. I just hate things like that. ^^

      As we all know, London lies at the Thames which can be crossed with the help of a bridge easily. You can also reach the southern part of England, where some productions are located.

      Something very important to me in any The Guild 2 map is the traffic and trade with ships. And because London is not that far away from the sea in my map, I decided to add a few overseas branches, in this case: Bruges and Le Havre. Both of them are close to London, what makes it nearly obligatory for traders to found establishments in London. But luckily, there are a few storage buildings for sale at London Harbour. But whoever doesn’t want to buy one of those has enough space to build a few more.





      Well, enough of that story… the „harsh“ facts:

      Playercount: 14

      Towns: 2 – London and Norwich

      Oversea Branches: Bruges and Le Havre

      Maritim trade: yes, but easier from London
