Altera (newer development branch of "Altered era/ruleset") is missing from 1.16 unit database while it is still present in 1.14 unit database - is it by design?
if so then please include Altera instead as it is newer

given the last update was 5 days ago, maybe another addon choked the site to death again.

both 1.14 and 1.16 units database show Lamia Viper line incorrectly for both "Altera" and "Altered era/ruleset" - double-checked just now that Haspid and Scylla are advancements of Conda, not Viper

maybe it chokes on my add-on?

I don't think so. Last time it died due to that abominable TDM addon choking it I just gave on it entirely since it's hardly showing anything relevant for my addons. The in-game help is always better.

it is still pretty useful to see "the big picture" - just an hour ago found missing advancement path from Saur Colwing to Saur Icheumon in my era, by looking through units database

The Build Report is invaluable for debugging. It catches many things that the error log misses.

it says that "Macro/file '~add-ons/Altera/units/boggarts/slayers' is missing" while it is present and I could not find any typos in respective include directive...

regardless thanks for the pointer to build report

The Altera addon has no slayers dir under units/boggarts. The only existing dirs are collectors, commoners and occupiers. Perhaps you're looking at a different version then what was uploaded.

If you're talking about 1.14 then you also need to look at 1.14 on units.wesnoth.org.
