Yet another top maps thread...with a twist.

Hey I know this thread was started countless times but I need something special .

I recently discovered the Imp and I really enjoyed it. Short but nice story, some nice hidden objects on map, and you do not have to run after AI heroes.

I also enjoyed basic training .

So... are there other similar maps? (I do not want maps for their excellent tons of reading material because I don't read them.)

So you're asking for small maps? Maybe try "When Champions Fail" and "After".

Not necessarily small maps. Those 2 happen to be Small. I just do not want maps recommended because of their great story only.

From the description when champions fall is another one just like The imp. TY.

Time ago I came over chinese maps and they are really uniques. You can search mapsforheroes.com for Wayfarer, Ira the mage, Way home or Lord of the rings.

Thread about lord of the rings in HC

Another interesting chinese map with a 2 days victory condition:

HC thread

Wayfarer is the hardest I tried and never could finish it. Is the kind of map where you play 2 months, then learn from errors and restart, now play 4, learn from errors again then restart etc. Had no patience, but map is amazing.

Since you like story-based maps (#1 and #2 on your top-ten), I can warmly recommend my "2 Friends" map. It's available at
http://www.hut.fi/~jmikkone/
(To admins: hint hint)

XL, 2-layer, Shadow of Death required
Expect LOTS of tricky situations and clever tricks. And yes, there's a couple of enemies you're not even SUPPOSED to be able to beat. Run for your life!

NOTE: The map is a co-op map, so you'll have to get together with a friend or play hotseat solo. Me & my girlfriend (back then, that is) thought it was a bit sad that there's no co-op ally maps with storyline, so I started the project. It took me over a year to finish it.

I can give you, send me your email. His link has closed?!? I can add on a few maps. If you want.. Tomorrow my computer on ADP table!

EDIT: 2 friend, you have 1 unicorn and you fight with 4 magic elementals, how? You don't need write and ask about it. Map in training. Hm I don't remember others map names.. Tomorrow I look in maps

2 Friends seems good. I will have to choose between 3 but I am interested. Can someone upload the map on the net?

Will check Salamandre's suggestions also. Some of the names I heard of but was busy with H5, H6 :~. For some maps I miss the creator telling what difficulty setting was the map intended for...

Edit: The guy who made 9 riddles was insane... 1 Archangel, 100 nagas, 5 Phoenixis + sacrifice against 10000 zombies.... Tried it 5 times, still to find the trick with sacrifice . (now don't tell me...)

If you liked the hidden surprises in "The Imp", maybe try "Jedi Story", because the author of that map seems to have some sort of an obsession with hiding things ;P and you don't have to chase AI there either I believe

Jedi Stori has great design but is rather unplayable. Besides the fact that everything is hidden and you have constantly to cast water walk or summon boat to move, creatures spawn will screw the map almost always, as well as some possible problems with random artefacts. I had to convert it to wog to be able to finish. See my play analyze HERE about possible quirks and flaws. Tried twice in sod and had to give up both times because creatures blocking the way to water walk.

Where the beauty in the quamarine/Hans version is one of the best adventures.

The lone knight by hans, one of the best also, although some races may be much harder than others to play.

@Ghost ty for link. Will try it soon.

@Noone in particular. What is the recommended difficulty for LotR map? I suppose 200%?

If you're playing a map of that extreme difficulty you might as well play it at 200% for the final score. Lower difficulty settings will barely make it easier anyways...

The difference on this map between 130% and 200% is having Portal of Glory end of week 2 or not. Or for that matter, killing the first hero coming from the sea in my case.

Maps should always be played at 200%, unless the author asked lower. Mainly because AI moves differently at different levels, and things could go not as planned.

For example, if you are playing LoTR now at less than 200%, it is possible that AI heros will not open the gates they are supposed to, thus you will be blocked. We don't know exactly how AI is coded according to difficulties but I know this from my maps, people reported strange AI behavior at less than 200%, which I did not expected.

In "After" (another good small map, less than a week long) the author asks for 130% (you will see why if you play it).

Why don't Valery consider these two Chinese maps?  Maybe he only saw English but not Chinese

Try or not~
