Hello!

Advancing units to RotL upgrades don't work with the Default era, in Multiplayer game versus AI, both in Scenarios and Random Maps :( . Reign of the Lords Advancement Modification is on. Using the current latest version of the mod (1.2.1.2). In single-player campaigns it is ok. Playing on BfW v1.12.6.

Thank you for posting this problem. :D I have run a few tests and unfortunately do not see this error, so I would appreciate it if you would upload a replay or say particular units that you tested that didn't advance.

Please note that the reign of the lords multiplayer advancement mod does not show the new units but when a unit advances it is supposed to advance to the new unit anyway, also it may have errors with special events and items, that advance units automatically.

Thank you and with more information I will hopefully be able to solve this issue.

You were right. It seems when using the debug command :unit advances=N, that unit does not advance to the RotL upgrade. The first thing I do when testing custom eras is using that command to advance the custom units. But…

Thanks for the clarification. Now I tried again without using that debug command, and the units advanced normally as should, even when using :unit experience=amount.

:arrow: So in the end, the advancement doesn't work when using :unit advances=N.

Thank you for posting again I also am currently trying to find a way to make it more versatile. Basically I have currently coded it to modify the advancements of certain 3rd level units when they first attack. So unfortunately no attack means no advancement.

And thank you very much for your feedback!

More feedback:

I mainly play this era for default units that advance to level 4 and 5. And I recommend these suggestions to truly make this a real high quality custom era:

:eng: Recommended suggestions:

As you can see, for me, it would be better if you remove all-together the artworks and descriptions of the units that I have written above, until better replacements are found or updated.
Should you do these changes, I am sure this era would be very much successful. :)

Thank you again for your feedback. I am confused about 1 thing however you say often in your comment "artwork is the same" For example:

Elvish Vendicator - Artwork is the same as Elvish Avenger, update it.


However the vendicator has this image:
assassin.png
assassin.png (4.86 KiB) Viewed 941 times


And the avenger has this image :
avenger.png
avenger.png (1.95 KiB) Viewed 936 times


These images aren't the same. Do you mean that they are too similar, and a new image should be made for the vedicator?

Similarily you said the Troll Shaman and Magical have the same artwork

However the magical has this image:
fireshaman.png
fireshaman.png (4.03 KiB) Viewed 935 times


and the shaman has this image:
shaman.png
shaman.png (1.21 KiB) Viewed 935 times


Also you have said the Orcish Warmonger's artwork is not found. However when i play the game the units picture looks fine. Could you upload a replay of it not loading, or say how you saw it not loading (multiplayer, campaign, unit database) so i can fix it.

As for the other changes you recommended i will try to implement them. As for the merman, drakes, outlaws and khalifate i plan on creating new advancements for them but do not currently have time nor artwork for them.

Another edit ;) also the Mage of Nature advances from the White Mage.

:D Thank you for your feedback!

Sorry, my bad, by artwork I meant the unit portraits when you click the unit profiles to see their descriptions. :oops:

I am eagerly waiting for you to fix the units and add the additional advancements for the units I wrote you about.

Keep up the good work! :)

Oh yes the unit portraits, unfortunately I am not much of an artist so it takes time for me to make aditional good quality portraits (in truth I mainly combine parts of other people's work) but I will see what I can do. Thank you for your input it is encouraging to have people interested in my addon!

I have released a half completed version with many new units (advancements of the goblins, bat, elvish scout, troll rock lobber, dwarvish king, and others)

By the way, could I ask what is the intended counter to the Eternal Lich?

:D that is a very good question. Unfortunately the undead faction has not yet been balanced so I can only suggest: five or six fire units which you are prepared to loose. :mrgreen:

Similarily I have found thar the prince of darkness can kill an entire army of lvl 3 units. So I will attempt to address these flaws.

Thank you for posting and I will definitely make sure there is a counter for that unit in each of the other factions.

Mage of Nature still does not advance from White Mage (I temporary fixed it by changing line 60 in utils\advancement_events.cfg).
Dwarvish Iron Bear still is not associated to any default appropriate unit.

Also, to remind you once again, I hope you add advancements to these units I found so far that still that don't have additional advancements, in order for this era to be a complete "additional advancements" era:
Default units:
