Hello guys

Wanna build walkable farms ?
Easy !

- Open AGE2 (open data2/empires.dat)
- Units tab, go to id=50 unit (farm)
- Attributes section : check "Air mode"
- Miscellaneous section : set "HP Bar Height 1" to 0
- Save the file (data2/empires.dat)
- Run EmpiresX and enjoy !

known side-effects
- graphical issue because farms are "higher" than other units. If a villager walks through a farm, you won't see him entirely
- you can build farms on other buildings !
- it seems you cant build farms on gaia decoration
- you can build something on a farm, but the farm will disappear

TO DO :
make computer player build farms closer to its forum

That is indeed something many people wanted for aoe. This is quite a discovery, but alas, I think the list of bugs is too large and too annoying to make it really useful.

I think the villager dissappearing might be fixable, but at the cost of other things, like grass patches and such partially covering the farm graphic.

In any case, you'll need to remove the house from the farm graphic.

Walkable farms don't seem to add much to the game, IMO. In fact non walkable farms could allow faster resource gathering if the villagers and granaries/town centers are strategically positioned.

They can add a lot if they would work like in aok. It would make walking through towns/cities much easier.

I agree on that. An important point is that computer player often get stuck in its own city because of farms built at stupid places
