As small as we are, we love creating geographically accurate real world maps for AOE2, especially for Diplomacy games, I PRAY we get diplomacy and big map sizes options in AOE4
unlike AOE3…which has 0 diplo…

I remember these custom maps with all the continents was the most fun to play. Imagine if map sizes are bigger so these maps are created even more detailed. Tons of people would love it. More than some random generated maps for sure although Im starting to like graphics style for AOE4 a lot and even those should be beautiful. But custom stuff always can be even more beautiful specially recreated real world places

Agreed, the EARTH stock “real world map” of AOE2 is the prime example of why we could use bigger map sizes, the landmasses are TOO damn small, that the only options are to settle in the middle of russia or africa, otherwise good luck surviving those bombard galleons in europe, mexico or any country that isn’t that big

as you can see the map doesn’t even use all of it’s size lol

Some places like Japan, england, etc are pretty much non existent on this map, you can’t even place a house in there

BTW if you want join my Diplomacy discord, we play real world maps all days

I would like if map size would be as big that u can actually create docks on go fishing in this kind of river. On good old AOE giant map that river is smaller than 1/2 villager so its just aesthetics to look at. This is why bigger pop limit would be cool as well so u can create empire at 1 side of the map, mass army and go conquer the world. Not the type of stuff we getting in pro games where 1 base from another is 30 sec long walk away. Yes this would be bad for pro games and e sports but this is a fun map to play for fun players

Sadly, I feel they are taking this aproach with AOE4

Also this is how the river looks, you can cactually put some docks there and fish, not too much space

idk why but they really messed up in aoe3 de with customs A: they made the mistake of lumping in custom maps with mods in general with caused lots of issues with their stupid mods enabled lobby browser filter thing. and B: even as of now customs is barely playable due to how just unstable everything is from the “mods” not being able to even download at all, to the basically every game at any time crashing due to out of sync errors they made sure to scare off as many of their player base as they could. i really hope they learn from their issues for the new game make the scenario editor more user friendly, make the custom maps separate from the regular mods, and easier to share said custom maps

Custom scenarios should work without mods. AoE3DE has mediocre multiplayer support for scenarios.
Which is sad because it has so many things that AoE2 just can’t do.

I do hope that the map size in AoE4 is not just fixed increments but that we can choose any size we want. Also the upper limit should be out PC crashing no need for a fixed limitation.
