Lines of Defense, usually enemies would not attack the island on the fort side, so they'd send troops inland, and attempt to break the gates on the south of the islands, if successful the Spanish soldiers would retreat from 1 to 3 the third being the most heavily fortified position, from the San Cristobal Fort all the way back to "El Morro".

I think Uncharted Waters Online folks must have used the Horn scale model for their version of Amsterdam.

That's funny, Hoorn is a completely different city, much smaller and less important than Amsterdam (although it was much more important in the 17th century than it is now and was among the first cities to obtain city rights).

Might be nice to add the videos to this thread as well (they are just too good to miss):
