Altdorf - The Imperial City

Hey all

The second map (and boy did this bastard take forever) that I am completing is Altdorf - The Imperial City. Currently a WIP!

I set to making this map a few weeks ago right after I made Talabheim. I thought this venture would take me a similar amount of time, but it took me waaay longer. Hope you all enjoy.

The map is still a work in progress as there are tons of things I would like to get done. You can see my list of hopeful improvements below

So, this map is BIG. It's a huge version of Altdorf. I have tried to stay as true as possible to the lore when placing buildings in certain areas. The idea was to be true to the lore, but also make it so that there are many different strategical options for you to get into.

- 5 entrances - 3 gates (one in the north and two in the south) and 2 blown holes in the wall (one in the north and one in the south).

- 6 bridges - There are 6 bridges connecting 3 landmasses

- University with defensive hills
- For with defensive positioning
- The Palace is a defensive walled position
- 3 Wharfs that are deploy-able for ease of attacking other sections of the city.
- Wide streets for cavalry movement
- Upper class district with defensive advantage elevation

This map is intended for 4v4s. It's huge. All of the entrance ways into the city make it so that you either need to divide and conquer or sacrifice part of the city. as the attackers, I would say, try not to be ♥♥♥♥♥ and just deploy everything in one zone and just bottle neck it, but it's up to you. The map is huge with lots of assets and therefore, spreading out units all over the map and actually treating it like 4 different commanders having to work together in different areas of the city, will not only yield the best gaming experience, but also the best performance.

So I have tested it out with AI and it does work in SOME ways. If you have 4 v 4 (humans vs AI) it seems to sometimes be fairly smart and deploy things in an OK way.

Over time, I will update this map and take all feedback on board. I would like to improve the map where I can. I realise there will be flaws with the map at first and that everyone map have suggestions, but it was about time I put the map up after weeks of work.

If you have some suggestions, please just post them below. I would be more than happy to answer them.

- Would love to finish the temple of Sigmar. I haven't been happy with it since I built it, but I wanted to make it somewhat of a strategical point
- Add more doo-dads all over the map for markets and the like. It's looking rather bare without them in some places, but they can come at a later date
- I want to improve the AI for the map, but it's secondary right now as the map is meant for human players


Hey guys, if you wanna support my map making, please leave a thumbs up and share! That's the best way to contribute! The more support each map gets, the more likely I am to put myself through it again and bring another epic map! :) Enjoy!

I love this! Plenty of space for large armies. Very detailed. My favorite building is the College of Magic.
Can you make an Altdorf map for Total War Warhammer 2?
