This is a small map pack in the form of a mod. You don't need to tamper with any files, simply unpack it into your Modules folder, start warband with the OPEN_FIELDS mod, go to multiplayer and search for the server called OPEN_FIELDS. The server will be running these maps for you to try out. Bear in mind that the server is based in EU, so overseas players may experience high pings. Once downloaded you are free to set up you'r own server as long as you do not change any part of the mod itself.
Please try it out and tell me how you like it. More info in the Repository, or just ask me.

Extracted Maps are available at the Repository

These are just the maps without a mod attached. Use them in your own mod or on your dedicated server. Enjoy!

Update 1.03 is out and now I have added Invasion gamemode created by Arch3r. All credit for the Invasion scripts go to him, Some changes are made to remove custom items as I only want to use Native stuff. Waves and Invasion units have been changed to a more generic crowd of peasant troops. First wave only uses knives and tools without ability to block. Next wave uses one handed weapons and staffs, subsequent waves carry more shields and thrown weapons, and boss waves are changed to Native Lords with a small following of Native Faction troops.
This is made to show off my maps, that I think go well with this entertaining gamemode. Play with bots on your own team, or team up with buddies and see how long you can survive.
Screenshots of the Invasion maps can be found further down in this thread.

Try it out, it will only take you a few minutes.

a few screens to whet your appetite
A small fortress, map Fortresses
The gates to a city, map Lytzen
The highway with large city in background, map Lytzen
The sea raiders lair, map Fjord
The coastal path to Thermophylae, the pass and plateau to the left, map Hot Gates
The Phokian wall, map Hot Gates
Mystic tunnels and dungeons

To play the mod, you will need to download the .ZIP file from the above link, and extract the folder OPEN_FIELDS into your warband Modules folder. Then simply start Warband with the new mod, go into multiplayer and search for the server also named OPEN_FIELDS, and log in.

Not for me, they all work fine.

They look rather barren though. Will archers not have a huge advantage?

But there are some wooden pikes and other minor things for cover.
Hmm, maybe I should just try it  :smile:

the maps are very cool but looks too big even for 64 players (as a 64p server owner).

This mod has lots of potential.

Hello all and thank you for showing interest in my little mod. I just downloaded the module system and have spent some time updating the mod so that it is now up to speed with the 1105 update, also there are a couple new maps. The main thing is that it will now be possible to change maps by vote thanks to the module system. So download the new thing and try out all the maps.

The server OPEN_FIELDS have been down quite a lot recently, but I will now try to keep it running around the clock from now. Please report any issues you find and if you have Ideas for new maps, let me know.

Hmmm... What about total desert? :grin: Just like the multiplayer map with generic plains.

Or you could put an oasis with something resembling a knight templar fort.

Alright, download the newest version of the mod from the repository now
http://www.mbrepository.com/file.php?id=1771
and you will find I've added a Random Desert map, for all you crusaders out there.
This works exactly like the random plains and will generate a new environment each time, although since it's desert it might not be terribly exiting.
I will put it up on the server also, so you can try it out today

Hey Gut, I AM terribly excited.

Gonna test ASAP, thank you!  :grin:


EDIT: Ok, my enthusiasm just skyrocketed.

The maps are A-WE-SO-ME. I tried them with tons of bots in lan server and boy...  :smile: I liked Hastings and Gascony a lot. And Rock Valley is cool too.

Two very minor grips: I appreciate the ability to vote for maps but would be nice to have the old vanilla ones in vote list too, not sure if this is easily doable, also in documentation if you could put the name of your new maps, for proper server setup.

Seeing what you have done I hope to see some historic desert scenario from you in the future.
