The name says it all.
I have tried to create a Black Forest style map, but with a couple of rivers snaking through the middle. You may be separated from the other players by water, or you might on the same piece of land as an ally ... or an enemy. In any case, the rivers provide an extra dimension beyond your standard Black Forest experience. Often it may not be enough to just wall off the shallows.

This is a random map script, so it will be different every time and should scale reasonably well to every map size and any number of players.

To play choose the following when setting up a match:
Map style – Custom
Location – Black Forest Rivers v1.1

Resources and are relatively standard and the AI should be be able to play with not too much difficulty except that the starting areas can be somewhat cramped.

Need more space to build? try BFR open edition: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=175871337
Running out of resources? Try BFR Ludicrous Resources: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=177119987

As always, feedback is welcome and appreciated so that I can fix bugs and improve my maps.

@ You might be subscribed to more than 30 mods. Try unsubscribing from a few maps or scenarios (they will not be deleted by unsubscribing of by verifying the game cache).
Tell me if that does not dolve your problem

I'm not seeing this in my mods folder or in my custom list. Any ideas?

Black Forest Rivers - Open Edition is now available if you feel that this map is too crowded

Thanks, to you all! it's great to see that so many people like the map

@Aeneas - "There isn't enough open space generated" I can see where you are coming from with this and it's mentioned before. From my standpoint it's difficult to find the right balance that provides enough space to build while still maintaining the feeling of a forest. Perhaps I will make a seperate "open" version with a lot more space...

Actually, I have some feedback/criticism. There isn't enough open space generated. In regular black forest, it's more open, but this is so filled that it becomes difficult to build anything without blocking the way. Still a great map, but I hope you increase the open land area or make a separate version for that.

Hmm, looks like you did a better job than I did with my "Sea Nomad" script (aka the map with no stone). That's an understatement. Amazing job!

This is Great! Black Forest is one of my all time favorite go to maps, but I think that the rivers will add change that will be considered a must have from now on. Thank you Zetnus!
