@Salamandre Actually what I did was not disable Town Portal, but change the code of it, meaning that AI can use same old OP TP, but human players will always go to nearest town, even with Expert Earth Magic. So that gives AI an advantage. But if someone does'nt wan't to change the code, it's easier just to disable TP.
I also reduced DD to one cast per day, as it pretty much forced you to get Air Magic and 4 jumps a day was just ridiculous...

But we all play the game differently and we don't have to agree about everything.

that's a good point, ghost. you can make a map more difficult by making any text in said map nearly indecipherable.


I missed this good to have you back fred

You can also create events outside AI's zone that trigger when he passes by to give yourself a ticking clock. Like +5 to stats when he walks to the next zone, so if you are not fast and AI expands, he will become stronger (this way it's most often also his strong hero that breaks trough a guard and enters a new zone).

Last but not least, add dwellings in AI's starting zone or flagged dwellings in an unreachable zone (especially usefull for higher tier creatures)

This is true, yet banning DD makes way more sense then having it available with just one cast. If map areas are separate by mountains instead of great chunks of water, like I believe it happens in your 'secret' map, one single DD may allow you to crossover without fighting a powerful guard or completing a quest. Sal is right in one thing, if you don't play maps made by others you never learn new tricks and always get your biased opinions confirmed.

You can't skip anything in my map with DD, not that you could'nt reach in some other way anyway. And there is no way to skip Quest and Border Guards/Gates in my map, they are there for a reason.
In HotA you can't take stuff from guards with Fly and DD, so they are really just there for faster/easier travel.

Also HotA with Fly/DD/Water Walk changes, also not allow to pass other things. Often you can see that if you play for example The Empire of World 2 with HotA and you can not flag Lighhouses on isolated ground without free spaces to land.
