I've played it. Thanks for contributing.
A good first effort.

What was nicely done, was that you don't get too much starting gold or save gold, and the heroes guarding the gold beyond that are quite powerful in comparison to how much you could have trained your creatures up until this point, but doable.

In your level objective you have typo, 'heroes' needs to be spelled with an 'e'. Also, you gave this map number 206, which is already in use so people might overwrite another map when they want to play yours. Look here (http://keeper.lubiki.pl/html/dk1_maps_list.php) for some free numbers. (Above 1300 is generally save).

For your next map, you could look into the level script (http://keeper.lubiki.pl/dk1_docs/dk_scripting_ref.htm). Currently your level can also be done in for example 'War for the Overworld', but Dungeon Keeper has much more to offer and this is done through the script (https://github.com/dkfans/keeperfx/wiki/New-and-Modified-Level-Script-Commands). For example you can make heroes attack the player so there's something to do besides waiting for your creatures to train strong enough. If you want some examples take a look at this map (https://keeperklan.com/downloads.php?do=file&id=115).

O, and one more tip: If you build a small (neutral) treasure room close to or against the southern gems the blue keeper will claim it and expand it. It will then be able to mine the gems much more efficiently, have a lot more gold and thus be able to train his creatures much better and provide a better challenge.

Hello, Managed to complete your map. Probably took me a good hour or so to complete. The reveal map special was a big help.

The only problem I noticed was the I never got around to fighting the Avatar hero party in the center of the map. A shame really, I was Looking forward to that. I'm not sure if it was a bug where they disappeared of the map or whether the blue keeper managed to defeat them first.

I enjoyed playing your map. Maybe you could do a campaign.

When I played it a while ago blue took out the center party.

I appreciate that you've tried. I have no time to campaign. I made this map as a kind of tribute to this great game, I hope never dies. Thanks for playing, greetings!
