Missing Connection in Dragon War



  • (Edit: I thought I posted this in the Dragon war Thread but alas...if a mod could move this for me that would be aweesome)

    This game is amazing! Having said that, I have noticed a missing connection hopefully someone can update it at some point: you can move units from Mount Thoril to Dol Ulum, but not the other way. I got into the xml (just messing around with my local copy - purely for learning purposes) and thought I could fix it by adding <connection t1="Dol Ulum" t2="Mount Thoril"/> but I guess the game reads from elsewhere.

    Anyway, just thought I would report this. Thanks for making this and keep up the good work!

    I've not tested any of this, but just letting you know there is no thing like a one-way connection. A connection always go both ways. If you can go from A to B but not from B to A, it must be for some other reasons, than connections.

    Thanks @Michael-Hoover for the notification. I appreciate that you came here to the forum and not just fixed your own local copy 😛

    Yes, there was a flaw in the XML. Actually there were two connections in the XML between the two territories. But this was not the problem. There has recently been an implementation of “Air connections” to the map as an alternative to bridge connections. (Credit to @Cernel 👍) The two territories had gotten an air connection (even though it shouldn’t) and this was preventing normal unit movement. You probably flew over the connection but could not walk over it with another unit.

    It should be fixed now when v1.2.8 Dragon War is downloadable/updateable.
    I hope you return and notify if you find other flaws. 😉
