British Isles is a sea map featured in Rise of Nations. Depending if teams were allowed in the map settings, players will either begin by themselves, with an allied player, a neutral nation, or an enemy nation in the same landmass.
Timber - Uncommon - some small forests are found within the landmasses.
Metal - Rare - there are a few mountains within the map so competition for metal can be fierce.
- British Isles is one of the more unpredictable maps in Rise of Nations. Players can be situated nearby others or can be completely isolated from each other.
- Sometimes, two opposing nations can start at the same landmass, thus igniting heated conflicts.
- Since all oil patches are located offshore, nations must have a strong navy to guard their oil platforms.
- Another basic resource that is hard to obtain is metal, due to the small size of the mountains.
