Enjoy!
can everyone play this map without crash?
I only edited it a bit (added a town here and there) and then tried to play it in multiplayer online lobby. 2 human players with simultanous turns. But after the ~3rd round the game crashes during the teal AI turn for the second player. We already emailed it to baratorch, but maybe there is a known bug?

The game does not crashes when playing any other rmg template delivered with Hota.

ok, crash also happens in singleplayer after second turn, during AI turn (this time purple). Unfortunately I do not have the original rmg.txt file anymore, could you upload it again so I can try to find out what change exactly cuases the crash (in case the original version works fine)

There. I wonder what kind of changes could cause such weird crashes. Also i can share the improved version ( tested ) which definitely provides more random/fun gameplay in case you want it.

thank you very much. I emailed baratorch a detailed description with my rmg version and linmk to your post for the original.  Your version does not crash (at least not within the first 7 days I tested).

Here would be my version, which does crash within the first 4 days during AI turn:

There isn't a green dragon avatar. (I would have made a thread but I can't because i just joined)


Maybe there is but it is reserved by other member.

You can request a custom avatar after a certain number of posts (but it is annoying, I have never done so)

As for HotA...

it does seem stranbge to me to make a (bad) change to resistance while not even changing Sorcery or Mysticism. (The new version has the same disadvantages as Eagle Eye in most respects, namely not working at all vs creatures and not being useful enough vs heroes.)

Other mods have alkready changed Sorcery vbalues so I woudn't think it is a matter of "not knowing how".

Really curious to see what you are gonna do about the magic schools and spell system, Earth is really good and Fire is really bad.
I hope we get something for New Years...

Just a impression - the more custom things we demand, the less random maps are random. And custom maps can be made with good old fashioned map editor.

Uhm i don't remember asking for more custom maps. And contrary to your claim, so called feature will enhance the randomness of maps generated by rmg. Just imagine having a war unicorn powerstack at the end of the game instead of wyvern monarchs'. Or being able to change the reward for any bank, doesn't it sound awesome?

Yes, I've finished two maps with this template, one several times. My guess is you are experiencing problems due to too many towns.
I was to ask about it but all the maps I've created with this template have more then 48 towns (as far as I know an hard cap).
Can someone elaborate on this, please?

So what? Unless they somehow extend the limit of skills to ten or twelve it doesn't matter how good are the other skills, you are going to look for a certain set and not much else. It's good if one can exclude Fire without much thinking.

One can make custom banks in WoG and I found a problem that will be true in HotA too, you need empty images of buildings to assign the creatures and rewards to. So, more then "custom creature banks" what we need is customizable objects, that can be dwellings of new creatures, treasure or creature banks or whatever one needs them to be.
But of course this will be giving too much control to mapmakers for HotA team...

I don't see how it's good one can exclude Fire Magic, I consider that bad. Then Fire Magic falls in the same category as Learning, Eagle Eye and First Aid, being skills you just avoid. Then why are they even there?, just so AI can get stuck with them?

This is really not a good argument. The game becomes much more interesting if you can choose from equally good skills. It's still situational ofc.
But I guess you are also referring to the current situation where it is true what you say, where you end up with the same set of skills most of the time if possible.

That's what I mean, always being stuck with the same skills and doing everything you can to avoid others is just boring, it leaves no room for variation.
The best/worst example is probably Fire and Water Magic, why would you pick them when Air and Earth have all the important adventure spells, mass Haste and Slow, Resurrection/Animate Dead etc.
Water Magic could be considered as a 3rd magic school, but 3 magic schools is a bit overkill.
Fire on the other hand no, just no...

Edit:
I recently had the idea that adventure spells, could have their own magic school. (of course titled adventure magic)
This school would of course be mandatory for most heroes, but it would balance the magic schools much better.
To compensate for the extra skill you are now forced to pick, you should be able to learn 9 or 10 skills instead, then it would also take a bit longer to max out a heroes skills.
Another idea is that adventure spells belong to more/all schools.
