Hey, my new project is a real castle which was built by Arabs and then successfully sieged by Crusaders. The castle name is Crac des Chevaliers and it stands in Syria.
I tried to built it as real as possible and took the pictures from google earth and different internet sides.
The Map is an invasion based map.
It is possible to play it against a KI player or a human player. Note: 'Host' must always be the defending side.
The invaders are the Arab troops lead by the great Saladin (arriving in waves till day 15). The Crusaders are defending and can only recruit some crusader units.
Both teams can't build any buildings.
Crusader: Defend the Lord and survive till all invasion troops are death
Arabians: Kill the enemy Lord
Note: The path through the gates is the only possible way to reach the Crusader Lord.

The remarkably well-preserved Crusader castle Crac des Chevaliers: Built and expanded between 1150 and 1250, it eventually housed a garrison of 2000. The castle guarded the only major pass between Antioch in Turkey and Beirut in Lebanon. It held out against several attacks, but was lost to the Mamluk Sultan Beybar in 1271.
