Forest Nothing Lakes 'FN Lake Near ORIGIANL.rms'

It's basically a Forest Nothing map (map full of trees, no other resources, no free space), but each player starts with a little free space (7x7 tiles) and a small near lake (~3 rows of trees away). There is no fish inside the lake, however, once in feudal you can get a lot of food from there without big need for space/farms.

The idea is based on King George's 'FN edge gr.rms' (THE forest nothing map) including his edge-fix (players start closer to middle) and a series of FN Lake maps from Raybingo and PizzaMoe. The single lake for each player is the special unique part of this map, because in RMS it's not possible to place any terrain (like water) for each player - only objects (like buildings, units, stone-piles, ...) can be placed for each player. well, i found a workaround with terrain-replacement and player-connections (- roads). so, this map was more a proof of concept. Unfortunately i see nowdays much more FN Lakes games on then classic FN edge gr games, which i like much more.

There are guides to Forest Nothing (Lakes) maps: Forest Nothing Guides[]

this should be the (working) michi-bundle
if u r in rms coding, michi x45 could be for u: boarders r free from trees (for free trade); also a LOT of hidden/disabled cool stuff u could easy enable by switching some flags in the rms file header. (no/low/high res; with/without relics; flat or hills; terrain-look-and-feel; rocks; towers; pre-walled; lakes&fish; ...)

and yes, steam changed somehow the workshop, so, the download here seems not to work anymore. as i do not play aoe2 on steam anymore, i do not think i will update this anytime soon, sorry.

[ FN ] on voobly could still be a place to get the fn-maps and also the tutorials (last time i played there, blackmore was still very active as moderator). but i'm afraid the team is not very alive anymore... however, if u just wanna see the tricky-rms-code: i used almost the same method in my michi x45 map and i know it is rebundled somewhere here in the (new) workshop. that download should still work.

well, i know fenix, played a lot fn with him those days. :) lot of fun. and damn he played very well. this however is the fn lakes map i made (as i wrote, the new feature was a single lake for each player. a little tricky to code, cause rms sucks* (*=is very limited)). this is NOT fenix's modified version he made later upon my map.

(pure) fn itselfe is way older (...rember clan holzhackerbuben?) und i personal still prefer that (pure) fn version (of king george)...

Thank you very much! yes I know where to put them, for anyone else wanting to install the map, put it in: SteamApps\common\Age2HD\resources\_common\random-map-scripts\

For Walkman, if you want the rms file made by FenixGoldSilver you can find it on my personal webspace:
go to:
right click on " FN Lake ONLY fix2.1.rms " and left click on "save as"
After that you should be able to find the file in your download folder.

I don't know if it will work on steam, I also don't know for sure in what folder you have to put the map in...
For normal (old) version of AOC, it's this folder:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Games\Age of Empires II\Random
Maybe it's the same for the HD version, if not, you must find out yourself...
hi kwin, could you tell me where I could download that? I have looked at that site and there don't seem to be any downloads.

hmm, I have the exact same map (RMS file called FN Lake ONLY fix2.1.rms
I know this map is made by FenixGoldSilver, I even remember when he was working on it...

This is the info you can read on the rms file:
This variation of the map "Forest Nothing" is made by user FenixGoldSilver.
There is a team [FN] of Forest Nothing players on
Based uppon map FN Lakes ffa ki_ge2
Map verifyed by users:
PizzaMoe / 29PizzaMoe(_fn)
Creation date: 30 sept 2013
Last update: 30 Sept 2013

You could at least be honest about who made the map :S

fenix golds silver.., make these map
When I download this steam places a 1.6 KiB file 630786604073116432_legacy.bin in SteamApps\workshop\content\221380\161709795 and I don't see any rms files. A different map mod I've found downloads a .RMS file to SteamApps\workshop\content\221380\283092210\resources\_common\random-map-scripts which I can then copy to the game folder.
