There is a situation that will work on the reign of lords for an era of magic - that means level 4-5

Hi, inferno8!

As you remember, I am using your Destroyers faction in my campaign, in Chapter III of it.
Also I am using level4 units as enemy leaders there. Mostly Abbaddons are good to be leaders because they are very hard to be killed because of high resistances. I do not use special things like awe and others. In general I use simplified variation of your units, I edit unit files.

My question is about lvl4 Cyclop - Fallen Cyclops King.
It is a relatively new unit. What I found is that it's laser attack aimed wrong. I think it is because the unit image is really big and his eye is shifted to the right greatly. So when he attacks ordinary lvl1 unit his laser beam hits somewhere outside the target. Do you know about this problem?

Yes, this is because the Fallen Cyclops King uses a generic 'destroyer laser' animation with custom offset to match its eye location. This offset causes the laser to visually miss small units. The only workaround for this in my opinion is to make a unique laser animation for the unit in question (or add an explosion so it feels like a target was hit). This is something I am planning in the future.

Thanks for pointing that out and good luck with your projects! ;)

I dowloaded EoMa but I can't use its units in the map editor.

After a way too long Wesbreak, I have returned! Here is an updated and overhauled German translation!
It will probably take some time until TIL is updated as well, though.

However, I must note that the .po I had available ("EoMa_raw_translation_file" in in add-ons\Era_of_Magic\translations) does not seem up to date, missing some strings, including both units that have been renamed and some abilities that do not show up in the .po.

Also, a problem that is less about this era specifically, but rather concerning mod creators in general:
Now that Khalifa have joined Mainline as the Dunefolk, the "Humans" race is no longer generic in the German translation, but rather is translated as "Humans (Wesnoth)" (and Dunefolk are "Humans (Dunefolk)")... and so does every other race also called "humans", for instance this Era's Summoners.
Therefore, I recommend the creation of translatable strings for the Humans of al-Kamija (and possibly create new races for Kharos and the Sky Kingdom).

Hi,

Mu is my favorit unit in era of magic.
However, it is only available in era of magic RPG (Wesnoth 1.14.7) so you cannot recruit in maps.
Standard era of magic has no Mu, would be great to have him as leader and be able to recruit.

Anybody has the solution?

Thanks in advance!!

Based on code it should be available.

It is in the drop down list of era of magic, but it does not appear among the units somehow.

To be compleet: I would like to choose MU as leader at creating a game in regular era of magic.

I know i can recruit MU from other leader in era of magic but i want him as leader.

Not sure a Mu would make for a good leader choice, but here you go anyway (go to your add-on folder (google it, as it depends on what operating system you're running bfw on, go to Era_of_Magic, then to units, and replace the faction_idlist file with the one below. Now the Mu is a valid leader option for the default era Sky Kingdom. Didn't bother with Age of Heroes/Masters & Slaves, though)):

Right, I misunderstood you there. You can't choose UM as leader in the Heroes version of the era either. :/

Have you found the add-on folder yet, or are you already in it, and can't find the faction_idlist?

EDIT: btw, the add-on folder should be in Documents\My Games\Wesnoth1.14\ unless you selected otherwise in the installer.
