ehm i believe the strat models for custom settlements are made by using factions.. you should check if.. either withwars scripts use a faction that is used for such a stratmap.. (hungary i believe) or that there are to few slots for factions because third age does not include DUnland.. so we use 1 or 2 factions more.. perhaps just the limit is crossed or something is used 2..
Figured i should drop in
Well... Not a lot more has happened. I'm thinking I was a little to hasty with the merge and maybe we should re-evaluate things. We need to consider these 3 things for the sake of the release:
1. Should I restart the merging process and take it file by file this time instead? This may be the most ideal if other MOS members are busy right now.
2. Should I try and fix the current problem and just try to get a release that is mostly complete and balanced so people can play it? I am certainly not suggesting to release an incomplete version, just a version with partial 2.1 and 3.1 features.
3. Should we restart and assign various files to various people and get things done faster? If other users have any free time to mod maybe we're wasting our resources and should all be doing various things? This will require coordination so things get done properly. May be too complicated...
Oh and as an after though Emperor of hell helped me pimpoint the problem. (well... sort of...) It is with custom settlements. I removed that folder and the battle loaded at MT with a generic Huge City.
If it's descr_strat I'm not sure what's wrong. I've double-checked countless times. As I stated earlier though, maybe it's time to restart this thing with more coordination depending on what route you want to take. Decide if you want everyone (yourself included ofc ) to try and fix my current issue, restart on my own with a more thorough (but slower) merge, or coordinate multiple efforts at the same time. I wouldn't be bothered tackling the whole thing again, but can't promise when it'll be done but I've sure been grinding away at it either way
Since your exams are over I'll try and fill you in on everything
Well more progress has been made, but now we're having problems with custom settlements crashing on the strat map. Read pages (or just skim through them) 10-12. If you want the whole story it can be found there
Might want to look at the social group as I have a question only you might be able to answer as we discussed it months ago.
We're about 85%-95% done now. Got to sort out settlement bugs, like why Minas Tirith is a Star Fort and so on. But I'll post in the mod workshop to get a fast response.
a bit busy, but i thought i should respond asap..
great !!! very happy to hear this.. i like everything i hear so far.. we just need to search someone to put it all together i guess.. maybe post on the forum an advertisement?
Got some good news, we should have a release in a few days now
I just need to do a little polishing and we'll have it running fine
I'll be taking out some features for now... 1 is the dynamic recruiting implemented in 3.1 and that is going to be removed temporarily to get a working, balanced, and AI stackspam free version. Custom settlements will ofc be in.
The only bugs left are some of the settlement strat models are messed up which I can fix
Here's how I would prefer this done... I want to upload all my modified files (shouldn't be no more than 5-15 MB) in a patch. So we'll have 4 downloads:
MOS 6.3 part 1
MOS 6.3 part 2
MOS 6.3 part 3
MOS 7.0 patch (TATW 3.1 compatible!)
Then, maybe someone can upload it all into one package for us as you don't want me to upload the whole thing unless you want to tack on a few extra days because of my poor uploading speed (10 KBps! )
The 7.0 patch will include the 6.3x patch files as well. As it was a small package and I will simply include them so there will only be 4 downloads instead of 5.
If you have any objections to any of this, state them now and let us address them
only to those that PB confirms
Hey Hotw Progress is going again, check teamwork social group for details.
Something else, I have some people asking me for the RC spreadsheet, is it ok to give it to anyone who wants it or is just given to those that PB confirms?...
