Different TOWNS on MAPS

When you choose your town or randomly get one at the beginning of the game, it seems to be very rare that you will find a 2nd town of the same type near your own or anywhere on the Map at all. Does anyone agree with me on this, have an explanation why, or have certain Maps to suggest that have similar towns together?

Please get back to me because this sort of rubs me the wrong way...

Havent noticed that...with randomly generated towns in fixed maps anyway. During my last day of playing fixed maps, some people were even adding the "no double build" rule due to matching of towns on rich fixed maps.

I don't know of that. Sometimes I can get a bunch of towns of the same type.

check out the thread about templates on ToH forum, I think it will answer your question.It's 7 or 8 pages long but you'll be interested to see the first 2.

Thanks Tigris,

I'm not sure if I found the link that you were referring to, but thanks anyways. I guess there isn't much harm in having 2 different towns and carrying around monsters from both of them, as long as the moral isn't negative. Does anyone have opinions or strategies on this? I've tried it both ways, 1 hero with 1 set of monsters only and 1 hero with 2 or more sets of monsters, and have identified a few benefits (more shooters or higher speed) and a few drawbacks (bad moral or ineffiencies).

Anyone have feedback or know where I can get some, please?

Thats's the template thread i told you about.
I guess another drawback would be the movement penalty.
E.G. Playing fortress and day one you see shakti in the tavern with +100 trogs. You say it's a bargain for 2500 gold, when in fact adding those trogs to your fortress army will cut your speed in half(instead of 15 tiltes you'll only do 8).This is better explained in angelito's "how do logistic and pathfinding skills work exactly?"

Thanks again Tigris,

Nice to see you finally got your own avatar! I'm going to put in for my own tonight, now that I have enough Gold Stars.

Thanks for the exact link, btw. I had gone right by that thread because of the subject...oops! I read through the whole thing and tried to get to "www.hommbastards.com" from work, but found the link dead. So, hopefully I will be able to figure something out at home and will finaly get my hands on a customized Random Map generator!

P.S. It's weird how that thread just died, though. That group seemed to be so close to a breakthrough. I wonder if they simply switched to a new thread or something. Hmmmm....?

There existed another thread about templates.
I know that for sure, coz i posted many research results made by my own.
I tested nearly all treasure values from 100 to 40.000.
So i was able to say on what number which building starts to appear on that random map.

I donīt know the name of that thread though. Perhaps someone has the time AND the mood to take a deeper look in some older threads, he can find them. I think there were some nice informations posted.

The thread you're talking about it's here in the library or in ToH?

yupp and remember:

Alamar as 2nd hero is a disaster since he brings even more of those terrible trogs that you have to use everywhere you go to get movement penalty!!
