Many different maps are available in both Lords of the Realm II and the Lords II Siege Pack. My favorite map is the Crusades. A challenging, fun game can be achieved here by selecting either "hard" or "medium" difficulty (if you are starting a custom game) and starting over until you are situated in the Latin Empire. This location isolates yourself, and thus while your opponents wage petty wars against each other, you can conquer counties, amass wealth, and BUILD ROYAL CASTLES!
While in battle, at the bottom right of the screen, there is a bar of options available to you. The one furthest to the right portrays a picture of a computer. This is the autocalc option. When faced against small, stupid armies full of peasants, this option works wonders. NEVER use this during a seige, though. Any dummy with half a brain can seige with better results.
