This tips very useful for all stronghold mapper out there Tip Number 1 Always choose a right spot for Al or enemy Yes, I see there many mapper ignore this and just focus on the map layout (grass, stone, etc) too make it so beautifull. but it useless you know. cause if you want fight enemy with enormous castle (Like Wolf). you need a bigger space for it. Tip Number 2 Place source not so near to enemy dont place the source near enemy castle, because that will make enemy faster to build their castle.

    **Pros:**

    - Intention to help.

    **Cons:**

    - Your tutorial is basically this : "Always choose the right spot for AI or enemies and place the source away from the enemy".
    - You started a discussion inside the tutorial and you also said that making a map beautiful is useless,which isn't true.You make an attempt to help mappers yet you tell them that they shouldn't make their maps look beatiful.

    **Improvements:**

    - Based on your tutorial AND your 1 map submission I can tell that you aren't a professional that is able to give some serious tips on improving on mapping (no offense).Make more maps,ask for feedback and if they're good then make a more in-depth tutorial that contains a lot of useful info and screenshots.

    **Notes:**

    - I read the comments below about your english,there are a couple tutorials here on GB,check them out - http://gamebanana.com/tuts/7202 , http://gamebanana.com/tuts/2100

    You just added some stuff, I meant fixing the grammar.

    - 'I' is always capitalized when used as first person singular
    - AI is a noun, don't be afraid to use 'the' once in a while
    - 'tips' is plural, 'this' is for singular nouns, 'these' is for plural nouns, when numerated, use the singular noun 'tip' (i.e. 'Tip number 1').
    - 'all' indicates plural, 'mapper' is singular.
    - Verbs, don't forget verbs, specifically variants of 'to be'
    - 'too' and 'to' are two completely different words, there can be 'too much' of something and you have 'to go'.
    - You 'focus on', not 'focus for' things; though you can have 'a focus for' things.
    - Indefinite articles; nouns beginning with a consonant or with uni- have 'a' before them, nouns with vowels get 'an', e.g. 'a dog', 'an apple'.
    - 'dont' isn't a word, the apostrophe in "don't" exists for a reason, it's a contraction, the apostrophe replaces the 'o'.

    Get schooled or get out.
