What I enjoy the most about AoE 2 these days is the map editor and playing various scenarios from Steam Workshop. With AoE2: DE comming up, I really hope that we not only get workshop support but also some improvements/additions to the map editor.
I am mostly making this thread to spark a discussion about the Map Editor but I’ll bring a few suggestions myself.
Custom upgrades? (This might already exist, I don’t recall ever seeing them ingame though.)
A custom resource that can be toggled for playermade scenarios. This could be used for minigames and such where you have previously used kings or other units as currency.
Allowing us to rotate the map 90 degrees (as shown on the picture below). I think this would make it significantly easier for people who are trying to recreate IRL or Fictional maps and continents. Maybe they could even go as far as giving us multiple map shapes to choose between, Round, Diamond, Square, Rectangle.
