ModdingBig

Here are the v1.704 patch notes:

  • Fixed a graphics issue with the Archon Caster unit by removing one of the two heads.
  • AIs forming an alliance against a player can no longer go from alliance to war with that player in a single turn.
  • Fixed a crash caused by having a city that had no size set in the level editor.
  • Fixed an issue where Nymphs would still be given as rewards from Springs Of Life.
  • Fixed an issue where modding in new terrain would cause a crash in the RMG.
  • Fixed an issue in the modding tools when editing a newly added resoucre that was in the same slot as a new resource from a linked mod or patch.
  • The package manager will no longer include .~acp files in archives when exporting or uploading to steam.
  • The warlord hero no longer gets a second frost protection upgrade at level 7.

Good luck, have fun & keep the mods coming : )>

    Wow, that’s a harsh way to call siameese twins 😛

    No Mod, but I try to help - Bane of Cockatrice, a Star and an Onion.

    When i see this patch note:
    “The warlord hero no longer gets a second frost protection upgrade at level 7”
    I have in mind this mod :
    http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=537928966

    So, i have a question for Triumph :
    Do you plan to “hard include” some mod in the game ?

    Any chance the bug with All Knowing not triggering to be fixed? It doesn’t trigger when you get the last skill you need with the Lost Library. I don’t know if it also occurs with other treasure sites. If you want I can send you a save file

    Hi Druski. Sorry to hear you are having trouble getting multiplayer to work. Please have a look here and here. If that doesn’t fix things for you please start a new topic to see if we can resolve the problem you are having.

    I’d call this a bug fix – with a modder ninja’ing us on fixing this – not including a mod.

    Please send the save to aow3support@triumphstudios.com, together with a description of the issue. We’ll have a look.

    I sent it. It’s a PBEM game in the open beta version, I hope that’s okay.

    Three of us have been playing AOW III for several months now without problems before the 1.704 patch upgrade. Two of us are running Linux Mint 17.2 (Mate desktop), the other is running Linux Ubuntu Trusty 14.4 (KDE-based desktop).

    When the person with Ubuntu hosts a game, neither of us with Mint can join.
    Selecting the Join button results in the message:
    Joining session (xyz’s Game) – one moment please.
    which never goes away. You have to X out of the game.

    When one of us with Mint tried to host the game, clicking on the Password box causes
    the game to freeze. At that point the game had to be Forced-Quit.

    Looking forward to the 1.705 patch.

    -Dan

    Hi DrSoSlo,

    Given that this looks like identical to a post I just answered on Steam, I assume you are the same poster. Let’s handle your issue in that topic.

    Also, no reason to double post, even across forums. We keep an eye on all of them.

    Found a hotseat bug.

    I am playing a 4 person hotseat game and the strangest thing happens. Periodically, about every 3-4 rounds, the keyboard shortcuts stop working! Loading the autosave file or restarting the game will correct the problem for a few more rounds and then the keyboard shortcuts stop again and will have to reload again.

    This does not happen at all in all the hours that I play single player.

    Found a bug in the RMG where it would place a bandit camp that is completely encircled by rock cavern walls. This was 7 hexes from my starting city. At first I thought it was a little bit funny and dismissed it, since I could not dig to it and the bandits could not dig to me. So I thought. To my horror the bandits warp spawn across the rock cavern wall and attack me with impunity! I tried placing units on empty hexes to block the spawn, but the bandits just spawn on an empty space no matter how far away from the camp. Bandits and assassins were one thing, but now I am fighting lesser shadow stalkers. Plus I have to deal with the ‘enemy in domain’ penalties. I guess my only hope is to win the game before true Shadow Stalkers start to attack my city.

    Hi Outis.

    I tried reproducing this issue, but I was unable to. Unfortunately that means we can’t have a look at what’s going on here yet.

    To reproduce I:

    1. Set up a 4 player RMG map, classic turns, all players set to human, default leaders.
    2. In game I pressed ‘n’ for next army & ended my turn by clicking the end turn button on screen.
    3. I repeated ‘2’ for all players for 10 turns, but using ‘n’ to select the next army never failed.

    Can you see if you can reproduce the issue on your setup using this method?

    Any updates on All Knowing?

    There’s a ticket to look into this for the next patch we do.

    Nymphs are still popping up as rewards from Spring of Life. Running v1.704, build 17205

    Found the cause of the issue. Looking into a fix.

    Do you still have a save game for this map? That will allow us to have a look at what went wrong in the RMG algorithms. If you do, please send it to aow3support@triumphstudios.com.

    Thanks for reporting!

    What’s wrong with Nymphs in Springs of Life?

    #239816

    Nothing when you’re on the receiving end, I guess 🙂
    but was considered too strong / game breaking (for their Seduce ability).

    Hello, I’m curious about something. Why do Frostling leaders of some classes get the frost weapons perk and other’s don’t?
    Every class except Archdruid and Necromancer seems to have the frost weapons ability why not my Archdruid?

    Dear Admins,

    regarding multiplayer issues and how i solved them: The very first line in all of the official troubleshooting-posts should be this one: AOW3 is NOT compatible with the IPv6 Protocol.

    If you want to host or even play Aow3 online you definetly need the old TCP/IPv4 and this is something you can not change yourself. Only your ISP can do that for you. Forget all the other “helpful tips” with UPnP and Ports and such, even the crappiest router should manage all that automatically.

    A lot of providers have their systems set on IPv6 by default. This will normally not cause any problems. Aow3 is the only game i know that doesnt work at all with IPv6. However, you can ask your ISP to set you back on IPv4. In my case (Vodafone) it took them 1 Minute on the phone and i could’ve done it myself online as well.

    Before i did that, i tried different computers, different routers and a lot of setups and spent hours and hours before i finally had the idea with ipv4.

    It kinda says so on system requirements.
