Machinery

I've noticed that sometimes in various campaign maps, when I take over an enemy-controlled building, if I steal any of their tech, sometimes it will say I stole an upgrade called "Machinery." I've unlocked all the nodes (I think I have at least, not sure if the green gem nodes in the far right of th...

Re: upgrade unlocks

I'd disagree on Horse Archer being bad. They're my favorite scouting unit in the game--5 move speed and 7 sight range (plus the 5 attack range is a nice bonus), added to the fact that unlike falcon, it doesn't die to a single arrow. My score for the "Hungarian invasions of Europe I." is 177,579 and ...

Re: Sight Range

Well for one, thinking more about it, skirmish should have more than 3 sight so they can actually do their job at being anti-archer better (though I assume this goes in line with your suggestion anyway?) I would agree with archer having uniform sight except for one thing--with both range upgrades an...

Re: Some of my unit(s) are stuck!

Well, "idiotproofing" the map design can't be a bad thing (unless you *want* to make some contrived map where, say the only way to "safely" move units is across a line of wagons spawning in forest or something, but that sounds like a horrible idea to begin with). In general, I think a global change ...

Re: Sight Range

Trebuchet having long sight range is fine--I imagine people actually might climb up there to have a look. Catapult (and probably the boat catapult too), yes, should DEFINITELY have their sight range reduced. They do far too much damage on their own to be able to see up to their max attack range--it ...

Re: assasins

In medieval times, thry were called sappers. They would dig under a seiged castle to an outter wall, use pig fat/carcass, wood to make a hot fire, the pig would explode taking down the wall. This. Assassins destroying buildings is fine--they should be well versed in subterfuge anyway, so taking up ...

Re: castle balancing

Don't make the limit to castles too strict though--they take a lot of space and a lot of time to build, and if you have trouble breaking a line of castles from sea, then it sounds like you gave the player too much time to build up (unless the map size is truly huge, in which case you should attack b...

Nyadhos Strategy, Paths of the Dead question

I know when you destroy a Watch tower, depending on which one you destroyed, a fixed set of units will spawn in a fixed area ONCE (seems to happen for most/all destroyed Watch towers). I also know that if you move a living unit next to an enemy wall, the wall will disappear. Both of these things see...

Some of my unit(s) are stuck! - IMPLEMENTED

This issue is already mentioned here: http://www.ageofstrategy.net/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=703 but that thread has some other issues mentioned in it too, so I wanted this issue to have its own thread for visibility/ease for the dev(s). :) Basically, some units have the property that they can't move ont...

Re: Powerup issue

COOLguy understands me correctly. Basically, I don't lose my upgrade tree progress, but I've wasted a couple consumables (full heal and the power/damage increase on one unit--the former used on the first turn of a map on a wagon due to mis-click/mis-tap/mis-press, and the latter on a pikeman near th...

Powerup issue - ANSWERED

There are some limited use "powerups" that you can buy with gems. Some non-limited use items are prevented from being accessed until you purchase one of the limited use item. That's all fine and dandy, but I just accidentally misclicked/mispressed the screen and one off the items I bought to progres...
