I need for continuing development of my campain bigger than 40x40 maps.
Preferably 50x50 or even 60x60.

Can you increase size for skirmish maps to such amounts, @Stratego (dev) ?

i dont plan to - in some very exceptional cases i can give temporary right to make one - but i must check that map carefully so it will not be too long to play/too lonng time to take turn for AI or for human.
(i mean long waitings, and long travelling on map)

If to be more correct i am planning to make few big maps (2-4 in my campain) because they must be epic fights of alliances.
For player i am planning in one of maps specific trigger-based production and tech researching of non-player races (player will be elf and s/he will also have production of orcs (without giants), undeads, humans. And for that i need either some way to allow non-elven units to produce normally (in tcs, by workers and such) or i can make it trigger-based but it is map_space-consuming and because i can't make great-looking and intresting maps.

Also another thing that i want to make is map of city in which there would be quests, player will be a le to enter some buildings and such and this also requires space.


Also for my campaign i think we would need separate category because i am planning to make it really big: for now i have maps (decorations and such) for 9 maps/32-40 and roadmap (plans on paper including programming part in general) for 19 maps.
Ofc i am planning it to make independent from both gem upgrades you have and from upcoming updates them as much as possible.

Also i want to make single map among them where one gem spell must be required.

When they'll be ready i will send them.
And thanks.
This will allow me to make storytelling maps of campain even more detailed.

Special grants?
Is that the case with random maps too?

I am not planning to make any randoms for now anyway.

If i ever will make a map for multiplayer it would be skirmish map.
