Modified from the Empire Earth random map script "King of the Gold" by Dr. Orange.
This is a desert map with cliffs, valleys, hills, desolate plains, dry lake beds and fertile mesas.
Player resource locations vary with each random map. Sometimes the resources will be on the players doorstep, and sometimes it will require some searching.
I did quite a bit of tweaking and testing with this map. At first I thought the AI may have a problem with the chaotic nature of the map, but after several games, it seems that the AI does rather well on this map.
Originally, I was going to leave the map like the original, but upon testing it realized that the AI did poorly with all the gold in the center of the map. I then began to make changes and liked the final result, which doesn't resemble the original very much at all.
