Maps bigger than 255x255?
Hi, will it be possible to finally make maps that have a size over 255x255?
this could improve gameplay alot when you want to play on really big maps

I saw in a thread awhile back on another site that before AOE2 was released back in the day ensemble studios had a a few versions that allowed bigger maps but it did some funky stuff...

Yeah, thats right Matt Pritchard posted some screenshots from it back some time on the aokh forums, so it had been accomplished before

255 doesnt appear to be a random number. 1 byte.

You can get smaller maps, like 10x10, 20x20, etc...

Bigger maps would be awesome, also the smallest seems to be at around 7x7 before it gets unstable and crashes.

Yes, maps larger than gigantic would be awesome. I have been searching for a mod like this since Age of the Empires 2 first came out around year 2000!!!!! If somebody can make this mod that would be amazing!

The game just currently wont recognize movement outside the 255x255 area

Then somebody should edit this and fix it. I mean common, there are Skyrim mods that completly change the entire game. I know that its possible.

i approve of all this, bigger maps would be awesome, entirely relevant and allow more creative maps. It would also tie perfectly with the 1000 population limit.

Would love to see it.

yes

Yeah hopefully ms ryzon is seeing this, this would be one of the most important updates on the game's history
