RMG for 252X252 MAPS

Before I start, just want to thank all those that continue to take time to study how HOMM3 works and find ways to edit it to make the game more enjoyable for all. Me and a friend recently used Alex's patch that allows for maps to be enlarged to 252x252. It's been great and all but I'm finding the rmg that comes with it seems to be quite easy. Not many high level creatures or high stacks of low level creatures guarding treasures/artifacts/utopias etc, so there isn't much to do. Mostly just resources everywhere 99%. I've tried editing the rmg to change monster strength, but anything I do makes no difference, besides the fact that whatever I did, made it so no heros existed in taverns so had to revert back to the original. We always play randomly created, xxl, no water, always full underground, 2 v 2, me and one ai, and him and one ai. What we're really hoping for is just to be able to play a map for a long time lol, not where we clear it in a few months. Does anyone know where I might be able to locate one such as this?

Thanks and a good weekend.

You probably need another map template. Here's my package. You may find their descriptions with pictures on the internet.

Place these in your \Data folder and rename the file you want to use to "rmg".

Note that some of these may need specific player settings before map can be generated.

Thanks Warmonger, appreciate it. You're one of the guys I remember in these forums for at least a decade now. Funny how this game keeps us coming back to it. I don't think there's any game quite like it that has the same effects on me.

Playing XL randoms has a soporific effect on me at least
Playing random XXL is instant coma then.

Salamandre, another old name. That's why you play in tournaments and I don't. You're not cut out for long games and I'm not cut out for short games.

Oh, I love long games! Is just about random maps, my eyes can't heal  from monotonous design and boring challenges. Maximum size for me is medium, when random. Tried once XL and lost because fall asleep. But seems that templates get better and better, maybe one day I try again.

wow, these are great.
However, I wonder, are there any, more "casual" players, persay, who are interested in RMGs which will work for 8 players? Because I notice these are all for 1v1
EDIT: I made some, btw

I'm very interested and I'd love to see your works.  I'm a player who hasn't gotten into online play yet (I suck too much) but I love slowly exploring huge maps vs full 7 AI opponents and as much difficulty as I can accomplish with scripts, settings, Phoenix Mod (that definitely changes things up), etc.

But as far as RMG goes, I strictly have been making them 8xm8, so I'm starved for new templates of that interesting sort, since as you say the available templates folks have made are mostly for online play with 2, occasionally 4 players.

lol, they are nothing really spectacular, mostly just modifications to existing RMGs
I would recommend you go to http://heroescommunity.com/viewthread.php3?TID=32264
someone made quite a few very nice RMG templates here
anyways,
http://wikisend.com/download/394502/XXLmaps.rar
here are 3...I really didn't do much, apart from converting already existing templates to 8 player XXL
have fun

In fact, all you need to do is to set max size of map to 98 (whatever it means).
The issue is that not all the maps will work nicely on 252x252.

some of the maps you made worked well for XXL, except they are only two player

One more reupload of those please?  I keep switching computers.  I'll make sure to keep copies this time so I can re-mirror them in the future.
