Perhaps developers should release a guide along with the level editor for next game. 85 % of the maps released on steam workshop is poorly set up as creators typically don't care.

Random map generated should be used as a reference rather than a ripoff. Looking at Heroes 3 how many crappy maps pushed out for no reason.

Setting up a multiplayer map in AoW3 is by far more complex as players need to define random factors like adventure mode, strong stacks, weak, cities, settlers etc to match settings similar how random maps are generated. That was never declared really when they shipped the game.

But the random generated maps is enough in my opinion. If players decide to create their own it will anyway be better with a handcrafted map that has identity.

Just make everything optional, that's the key. Don't need to put a million things in the game, just make everything in it optional and easy to fine tune. (Also put Dark Elves in the game this time!!)

To be honest, I only care about the cam

To be honest, I only care about the campaign...
Yeah, clicking constantly hoping that finally two half developed characters stop talking to each other so that you can start playin... Yawn. (As a filmmaker I can tell you that dialogue doesn't develop character, action does. But I am actually speaking more about Planetfall right now, I don't even think I ever started the AOWIII campaign)

Of course when the Dark Elves cast their spell of flowers, the world slowly becomes covered with black and purple flowers and slowly poisoned by them. A sort of death so beautiful that can't exist in the real world. At that point everyone with some reason left would stop fighting each other and turn against the DEs but it would be too late. But the DEs would also have poisonous flowers of all kinds that they could deploy from the begnning of the game... and black towers that are invisible unless you approach them from very close. that's AOW IV the way I see it. Dark Elves and their slaves that's all I see.
