Hey guys, I'm new and a big fan of custom maps. Unfortunately, I'm no good at creating them, so I thought I'd pitch this idea for a map out to anyone else who's a history buff like me.
I was thinking of a total war style map of 15-16th century Japan (sengoku period). You would play as the daimyo (lord) of a Japanese clan of your choosing, and forge alliances wtih, declare war on, and trade with other daimyos. You could build certain structures that would allow different types of samurai and ashigaru, others would increase provincial happiness, culture, etc. Controlling provinces would allow you to tax the peasants to gain money, but there would be expenses deducted by your army, building upkeep, and other things. If you set taxes too high though, the peasants could grow angry and revolt, becoming another enemy to deal with.
That's my idea. If you like it and think you could do it, please say so. Also, tell me if you think any improvements could be made. Thanks!
Sounds basically like a remake of Total War: Shogun 2.
Not too bad of an idea, but it would require a huge amount of investment to create due to having to create every custom model by scratch. I might eventually get around to making a map that is at least in the Japanese feudal era or around there, although it'd most likely be something besides a strategy game.
