A way to make some units or all units unable to conquer?

Post by Fosprey »

In my era i want that only some units or no units (depending on what´s easier) to be able to change the side of a village terrain.
I want to make something like a modified version of a new land. Where you build terrain tiles and they are of your own. But i don´t want the opponent or anyone to be able to conquer it. I can´t figure a way because i want the tile to be counted as a village, but i don´t want player interaction to change who owns the village. I hope I made myself clear.

Possible, I think, but complicated. You can use owner_side in [filter_location] to create a list of who owns each village. Then, on each capture event, you can use [capture_village] to immediately give the village back to its previous owner. That should work. You could also filter the capture event to only fire for some units.
