[BIOMES] Post here biomes (wildlife, flora, water and terrain) of any continent that you would like to see in the future

I am fond of nature and that is why I want to see which regions and ecosystems you would like to see converted into digital files in AOE-3 DE.

Propose gaia elements such as fauna that is only for decoration in the game.

Example:





Styles of water (crystalline waters, oceanic waters, turbid waters, reefs, etc). The weeds that surround it and the fauna that inhabits them.

Example:




Trees and weeds of all kinds. (Ferns, chamizas, dead trees, etc)

Example:


Cliffs, rocks and all kinds of terrain.

Example:



I hope you have understood my point. The idea is to provide general concepts of our beautiful planet to potentially apply them in the game. Thanks!

Don’t want to hijack your thread, but more of this in AoE4 and AoE2 would be nice, as well

It wouldn’t be the most realistic of battlefields but an island with volcanoes, hot magma, and the like would be cool.

The great plains map has geysers. It could be put on without problems.

Cerrado


And Caatingabioma-caatinga
Both in Brazil

Cerrado and Amazonia are probably big enough to be split in multiple maps.

Would like some urban kind of map, based in Europe

That could be cool,
It could have mills through the map with higher gather rates to reward map control

I’d love to see more man-made props on the battlefield and things like fighting in inhabited areas. Yes III is about colonization and, as it should, most maps are pure and wild (outside of native and trading posts) but at the same time regional diversity is huge and by now it’s totally fine to have some maps that recreate fighting on the outskirts of Native settlements and cities, as well as colonial settlements, outposts, towns, harbors etc.

In AoE II there is a lot of gaia buildings and neutral, man-made decoration and terrain textures- dirt paths, cobblestone streets…
I’d like to see a Dawn of War (1-2) twist i.e. having some normal biome background and map filled with buildings that can be destroyed, creating chokeholds and maybe mazes in spots, with abandoned outposts that can be garrisoned, with ruins of small fishing villages or farms.

I would like to see the rainforests of the Congo Basin represented in a future map for those of us with the African Royals DLC.

Wildlife would include the bongo, okapi, and elephants as huntable prey and gorillas (in addition to the leopards) as guardian animals.

Bongo

Okapi

Gorilla
