[H5] Mixed Neutrals (+ Black Knights!)

I browsed the official editor documentation, but didn't find anything (?). In addition, I've seen people (here or at Celestial Heavens?) asking about mixed neutrals, so here's a quick tutorial on how to add this great feature to your map.

It's very easy and intuitive really:

1) Place a stack on the map (I've put some Archers in front of a sawmill as guards).
2) Open the Map Properties Tree.
3) Select the stack on the map and you'll get to see its properties on the left:

4) Left-click to select "additional stacks" like in the pic above, right click on it to see a new menu, then left-click to choose "add" in the menu. Now below the number [0] set the type of the creatures you want to add (you can also customize other parameters, such as their amount). I've just added a default number of Peasents to the Archers.

5) In the game and in the editor, the mixed neutrals will get the familiar red banner and aura.

Some notes:

a) You can add as many stacks or different types of creatures as you want, but only the first six (plus the original one) will appear in game - because there are only seven slots in one army.

b) If you add a stronger creature than the original one, the appearance on the adventure map changes (e.g. if I added Angels to the Archers, the stack would turn to Angels). In most cases there will be no unpleasent surprises for players - the creature you see is usually the strongest in the stack.

c) You can add neutrals as well, including the Black Knight.

SCREENSHOT

d) You can add the Yeti too, but - like before - it appears as the Peasent on the adventure map, has the icon of an artifact, while in combat it looks like the Wolf. The game does not crash though.

Finally, a note to mapmakers: please do not abuse this feature.
