That's good to hear.

Another issue i ran into during a match. One of the statues of my ally was petrified by a statue of the enemy. Shouldn't the statue be immune to that attack?

The orcs from Archaic era in Ageless include a unit that advances from Grunts, and this produces OOSes with Default. I only had Ageless installed, not Archaic, when it occured. However, it occurs to me that the same error probably appears with Archaic. You might want to look into that, you could probably fix this by creating your own grunt unit file, with a different id than default.

No, it's my fault. I have fixed this in my era. It will be in my next updates. Sorry.

0.9.16 just went to the server. It is a maintenance release, no new factions or anything. But it is needed for the two campaigns to work properly.

Since Phantom and Despair aren't balanced, why not make it so you can choose to have them or not?

Maybe. Better would be to get everything finished though.

0.9.17 just went to the server. It is another bug-fix release, nothing really visible. I think we've all moved on, so I am dropping support for 1.6 (those .txt files are still there, but I've commented out the {@/campaigns...} things).

I think so, too. I think we should also delete the txt files since it'll just spam with unneeded files (you won't be able to use them since you deleted the {@campaigns... thing). BTW, you can't use the era anymore with 1.6 since all these [pertify] tags are named [stone] in 1.6.

Ah yeah, even more reason to get rid of that stuff.

0.9.18 just went to the server. Yet another minor bug-fix release.

0.9.19 just went to the server. It has a new cavalryman-like unit for the Ukians. It's not really Ukian, so it might look a little out of place, but it can fit in the back-story. It is strong against cold and it has an impact attack so it should help alleviate the Ukian's problem against Undead.

Why not take the ukian signalman/flareman and make a new unit line out of it? This way the ukians would also have a melee attack against undead.

I think so, the statues can petrify, that hability sucks a lot. you can do a spamming of statues and using a steatue as leader, you can petrify every unit exeptly the leader, and you weren't killed during day time because you are petrify :P

In ageless era when I did that strategy 2 times, I have won very easly.


Well, to kill the leader you will need more than Statues, you can buy offensive units to comploment.

You can't choose the statue as your leader in archaic era. Also in archaic era the statue will take some self damage for every unit it has petrified. That also applies for the daytime when the statue is turned into stone. So while ageless era does contain the units from archaic era it's not the same.

Right. Maybe I should put that in the first post, in case anyone reads those.

That would be one way of doing it, but I'd rather not touch the current ones because I don't know what all that would do in the campaign. I think I'll try to get another line, so that the horsemen don't stand out by themselves. Then they can then be optionally put into the campaign whenever.

Actually the Ukians have the runner so it's not like they were helpless against undead. The undead on the other hand stand no chance against the mummy of the phantoms. They are highly vulnerable against its arcane attack and have no unit to fight it. That also applies to the other factions that are vulnerable against arcane attacks. The mummy is simply too strong. Sure, it's slow but it has a lot of hitpoints and the selfheal ability right from the start. I would at least remove the selfheal ability for the lvl 1 mummy, maybe even remove the selfheal/regeneration ability altogether.

Maybe the statues should have only 1 Strike to petrify, that should the statues the half of useful to petrify.
