Welcome to the AoEH Designers' Board, a thread aimed to gather the last active designers and keep them in contact. The Board shows in alphabetical order people who are currently working on AoE/RoR scenarios and campaigns. To join the Board simply post here and give some little details about your work, such as the game (AoE or RoR), the setting (Historical, Fiction or Fantasy) and the subject (what is your campaign about?). This is also a good place to ask help to other designers, seek for playtesters, post your screenshots, and unleash your design frustrations.

Updates on your progresses are optional, but highly welcome, so if you are working on a multi-level campaign you may post here as you finish a particular scenario, and your status will be updated. Once your game is published, it will be listed among the 'Released Projects'.

This campaign has been put on semi permanent hold as I have been busy with my first campaign. If you could remove this thant would be great. I have nearly finished another scenario called "The Staff of Whyle". It ties in with my other two, Horn of Tiburon and Eyes of Oriele. This one prepares you for my Original campaign called Arturian's Fate. Sorry this has taken so long as I wanted everything to work smoothly and real life got in the way. This should be done in about two weeks and uploaded. No time frame on my original as there are some nasty bugs to work out. Honestly I am probable looking at another year until completion.

A little look into The Staff of Whyle:
An ancient staff that people say holds the power of the elements. In the right hands it can be used to force the thunder from the sky and lightning to strike and destroy what ever stands in its path. Thrust it upon the ground and the very earth will shake and open to swallow your enemies. One of three ancient artifacts that was given to mortal man by the gods in the hopes that he would still believe and hold them above all others. Held in the wrong hands and…well you can guess the outcome.

Ain't no rest for the wicked.

Looks like it's because you can build buildings in-game over some trees (?usually/often/always? with 75 wood), which makes the trees disappear, while you can't build buildings on forest trees as they don't disappear.

OK then, another question/query.

My victory conditions don't work because the game is a failcake. (I an seriously angry and annoyed)I've spent about 3-4 hours testing the level over and over again and can't find the problem.

These are my current victory conditions:
1-Destroy player 2
2-Destroy number of objects-player 5-granary-5
3-Destroy number of objects-player 5-barracks-2

4-destroy specific object-Barracks
5-Destroy player 6
6-bring object to area-Hero Alexander-area size:4x6 squares
7-bring object to area-cataphract-area size:4x6
8-bring object to area-bowman-area size:3x3 (2 squares unaccessible)

I have even made a test map with the same objectives which doesn't work either. I have already tested the bring object to area conditions and they work fine. Bur I believe that either condition 2 or 3 doesn't work.

Any help would be nice and well appreciated.

Set the VC's while using the default data file, and maybe test it in there too.

Finally, a problem I'm familiar with!

If you have a 3x3 area the square in the middle must be accessible. For some reason when you specify an area the outermost tiles don't count. Make it so that the tile that the unit needs to be on is in the middle of your 3x3 area.

Once I had a VC where you had to build a wall in a certain area 6x1 big. It didn't work, ever. Then I set the area to 8x3 and placed the walls in the center of it so that there was a 1 tile thick ring of the specified area around it and it worked. I hope this terminology isn't too confusing as I can't come up with a screenshot for you.

I am using the EE to design and produce and the original empires.dat to test. That may have been the problem before.
If you have a 3x3 area the square in the middle must be accessible.
I found this out on my test level which portrayed the same VC's but in an easier and quicker to complete style. When I increased the areas it worked and I won it but I had to disable the other 5 objectives for it to work.

But, I am happy to say that I finally got them working. Instead of using the 'Destroy number of objects' VC I changed them to destroy specific object. Which has actually made it easier for the player to win as there is now one less object that must be destroyed (as there can only be 12 different objectives.)

Thanks to all who helped me out with this situation. I've only got the bitmap left to do. But I'll end with a few quick questions:

How do you get the grid up in the scenario editor? I've seen this mentioned before but I can't remember where.

And what program do people use to make their bitmaps for their scenarios? (the quicker that this is answered, the better my bitmap will be!)

I think the grid is Ctrl+B, not totally sure.

I use simple Paint for bitmaps, but mine aren't good quality. Ask TS, I think he uses Gimp.

You can also use Ctrl+A to bring up unit outlines.

Yes I use Gimp and I've had spectacular results with it, but it's a fair bit o' work. Which reminds me, I need to finish that Gimp Bitmap Tutorial I've been working on!

I'm about to download and play both Killer's and Helelix's scenarios. Seeing new stuff in the Granary reminds me that I should get working...

Looks nice, btw, Helelix, you might want to add the units "real" names since a lot of people don't use edited .dlls

Whoever was posting about the VC's (forgot ) the problem might have been that you didn't choose the right player (it refers to the player who's objects have to BE destroyed) or maybe you had a combination of normal and EE buildings.

Is it possible to/how do you make VCs with hidden units? When I switch back to the original dat the VCs seem to disappear. Does the effect remain unchanged? (I remember trying to make VCs (don't remember what kind) with Saint Francis units in Coke vs Pepsi but it didn't work)

Don't open the scenario at all with the regular dat after making the VC's?

Hidden units? Please explain. Do you mean unlocked units from the EE?

I think he means beta units like the ones in the EE. I think that if you make the VC require certain units that are in the EE but not in the normal editor, the VC could fail to read them in the end. I know that you CAN include Trade Workshops in a VC without trouble, but I can imagine having trouble with cheat units.

Also, 2 more posts till closing.

Yes I meant all the units that are hidden from the editor in the original dat and unlocked in EE, including cheat units, beta units, etc.

Alright, I think it's time to say goodbye to the old Designer's Board. It's been a great thread, and it'll go in the Hall of Fame for sure. I'll have a new one up soon. Thread closed.
