Ienzo put together available informations and wrote interesting tutorial for Linux users: how to run Csx or AC on Linux. Thanks a lot!

"
With Windows 8 and RT losing the traditional support for legacy programs (that is old programs like Cossacks), Wine, the Linux interface for running windows programs, may be the only way of running these old programs in the future...."

I have been making and playing some new maps lately. So I have added another 7 skirmish maps for C2 1.3. They will also work on 1.4. Hope you enjoy them!

Well I have been asked to give some descriptions on my maps, but since I do not write all that well I will instead describe my philosophy  on map making. 

My passion is on-line play, so my maps are designed around balance for each side.

First I make a map that I would like to play. This means an average amount of resources. balance in that neither side is closer to any resource than the other. Since I believe that the maps in C2 are too small, I try to position the opponents at the furthest position of the map, and use all corners.

I try to build a map with 2 sides. Normally a dividing line such as a river, or mountain range, that could be defended from a rush.

I try to leave an open area for fortifications, should you last long enough to build one. (many maps do not have an area large enough to build one and I hated that.)

Beyond that I tried to get creative  with the formation of villages. I think I have finally been able to get the farms correct. And I have tried to get creative with gold, coal, and iron villages, by placing them in, or on hills/mountains. Forming mountain trails in the rock. (not easy for me to do).

I also have tried to create at least one Town on each map, that has no value other than decoration. (mainly just because they are fun to build).

Beyond that I have played with the starting amount of peasants. and starting resources. I feel this allows different builds, and strategies. And just in general it keeps the game fresh. 

Well there you go on my ideas of what a good map consists of. I would welcome any other ideas.

Thanks, and good gaming!

I'd like to thank everyone who has uploaded their own files (maps,...) to this site so far.

Just one remark. Please compress your files before uploading with winrar or winzip to minimize the space used.
The MB space available on the site is limited.
Same goes for images, I prefer .jpg, .png over .bmp

Thanks for your understanding.

Regards

E.A.

Few words from [HKA]Warren to Cossacks Community:

"Hello west guys, privet east friends!

I, my mates from kozacy.org, lcn admin [-SKY-]Bo[JI]K, [HKA]Sav, [-NEC-]Akoo, technical admin [GeV]Koko and great player [PR]ELENDOR organize next fantastic tourney. Now we want invite players from all earth's nations, even Eskimos and Zulu Chakas. ;) Our main mind is "Tourny without BORDERS", and we know, we can do it now!

So...

Some info about New World Order Cup!


1. Tourney System:

1.a Main Info:

Tournament consists of 2 rounds. First stage is regional elimination for 2nd round, which is played as a play off. Groups will be 4-7, it depends on number of participants. First proposal for regional stage is share players for these groups:

1- Polish group (1 or 2 groups) Forum language: Polish;
2- Russian group (1) Forum language: Russian;
3- Ukrainian group (1) Forum language: Russian/Ukrainian;
4- Hungarian group (1) Forum language: Hungarian/English;
5- West group (1) Forum language: English;
6- Mix group (1) Forum language: English or Russian

Min. 5 players in each group. In anormal situation we'll add some non-regional players to the smallest groups.

1.b Groups:

Every group has own administrator and language. 8 players with best lcn rank don't play in first stage. They start competition in play off round as 'favourites'.

2. Rules:

Our main mind is "tourney without borders"- for nationality, rules and skills, so we put in NWO cup five most popular rules from LCN and one organisator's rule- they're 1000 0pt, 5000 0pt, 5000 10pt (adm rules), 5000 20pt no dc, $$$ def 10pt and $$$ def 0pt.

In groups we play one game in rules of player "x" and one game in rules of player "y". If game score will be 1:1 then gamers play one extra game on extra rule choosen by organisators. Different extrarule for each group.

In play offs participants use all rules from "rules list" until somebody has 2 points advantage, e.g 2:0, 3:1. If score will be 3:3 then players play extragame on rule 5000 20pt WITH dc (like diff liga).

2.a Codex:

a) Raids allowed on all rules alltime in all map (neutral too), also before finish the peace time.

b) Auto save for all nominations - 2 min or 4 min.

c) Cheats are prohibited, include Macros. Pomor patch is allowed.

d) Unnecessary discussions between players will be punished.



3. Other:

Prize:

1 dollar for 1 participants for 1st place. E.G 60 players in cup= 60 dollars for the winner. Maximum 64 dollars.

Timetable:

20th November- 23th December 2011
