It's Black Forest ... with rivers. 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. Should work in ALL game versions. Known issues: The starting areas can sometimes very small and cramped. I have tried to reduce the frequency of this happening, but there is no way I can completely prevent it without ruining the feeling of the forest. This can sometimes impair AI performance. This map can be unbalanced at times, and is intended for casual play rather than competitive games.
