    in the current changelog, it states that full dwarven vaults give more passive XP than overflowing dwarven vaults, yet overflowing is the 'better' vault. Any reason for this, or typo?

    Thanks - I'd done the same thing in the XML as well, but both are sorted now.

    Version 043
    0. Updated to FfH 034.
    1. Scions of Patria added (civilization by Tarquelne)
    2. Curse the Lands, Appease Divinity and Mana Surge rituals temporarily disabled (we've got plans for these but at the moment they're going to interfere too much with the Illian rituals - watch this space)
    3. Barrows, Ruins and Hill Giant Steadings use old Fall Further style exploration. New style dungeons (including goblin forts and Epic Dungeons) use Kael style exploration. (both alongside to compare/contrast, plus extra variability).
    4. Ice Mana is still a standard node type (change from FfH 034 back to FF042).
    5. Ice spells split into "Divine" and "Arcane".
    6. Ice Arcane includes Slow, Summon Ice Elemental, Frozen Lands.
    7. Ice Divine includes Summon Frostling, Stasis Curse, Snowfall.
    8. Epic Lairs will not disappear when explored/destroyed. Can be successfully explored/destroyed once every 100 turns. (Mr Underhill)
    9. Lightbringers gain better results from tribal villages (MaxAstro).
    10. Theatre cost decreased to 180 hammers (MaxAstro).
    11. Aqueduct cost decreased to 150 hammers. Tech Prereq changed to Construction.
    12. "Well" building added. Cost 75 hammers. Requires: Crafting. +1 Health.
    13. "Sewers" building added. Cost 180 hammers. Requires: Sanitation, City next to river. +1 Health, no Unhealthiness from buildings in city.

    15. Cualli start with "Blood and Sacrifice" as a default civic (MaxAstro)
    16. Daracaat is now Barbarian, Aggressive, Defender (Aggressive and Defender are not mutually exclusive thematically) (MaxAstro).
    17. Polar Bears will only spawn on Snow, not Forest (MaxAstro).
    18. City of a Thousand Slums now requires Taxation instead of Engineering (MaxAstro).
    19. City of a Thousand Slums now provides -5 Health (negated if you have a sewer in the city).
    20. Mazatl Palace provides Creation mana instead of Mind mana (MaxAstro).
    21. Letum Frigus will spawn Beastmen periodically - it still attracts warriors of the Doviello who know it as a legendary place (MaxAstro).
    22. Axemen and "standard" Axeman UU's (i.e. Moroi, Brutes and Swordsmen but not Pyre Zombies and Wood Golems) gain 25% Attack vs Warriors (don't rely on warriors to defend well).
    23. Archery now requires Crafting instead of Exploration->Hunting.
    24. Archery cost increased by 20% to 360 (offsets the cheaper path to the tech slightly, but still massively easier to reach than previously).
    25. Javelin thrower units gain the "Skirmisher" promotion (promotion introduced by the Scions - +15% chance to withdraw, increased chance to defend stack).
    26. Added Promotion Duration mechanic (for ModModders).

    28. Added chance for Fall Further magic items to be found in treasure chests
    29. Added GameOption to disable Worker Experience gain (promotions still available so if they *do* gain XP from somewhere it can be spent, but there is no passive gain).
    30. Lizardman promotion grants attack/defense bonuses in normal jungle as well as deep jungle (MaxAstro)
    31. Added Carrack naval unit. Requires: Optics. Strength 9, Range 1. (Role: Escort)

    W00t, release! A game as the Scions started me near Patrian Artifacts, Dragon Bones, a ruined city, a river and a nice number of plains hills - this version looks good! :)

    wheeee finally its out...

    -Was glancing at the naval changes though--it said that privateers gain 25% against transport ships, which I believe are the galley, galleon, queen of the line.
    Is there a typo in your pedia entry that it gains 25% against Carracks?
    Isn't Carracks supposed to be the escort/warship type unit during the sailing era?
    Though they are of slightly higher base strength of 9 compared to privateers, the 25% puts privateers almost on par with Carracks :confused: not to mention the additional 20% withdrawal.

    -Also, you might want to update your pedia entries for Archery Range, Hunting Lodge etc to say that they raise the corresponding passive XP caps. Its kind of confusing to have to refer back to your changelog to get the correct (I assume thats the intended one) details.

    -mmm... might want to add what the new Force I does from your changelog to the pedia--its kind of cryptic at the moment.
    As for the Force II spell (which was the reworked Force I spell), could I also recommend a rewording of the pedia entry? It did take a while to decipher it when I saw it back in the previous patches when it was added -- a somewhat layman explanation of what it does could help instead of the somewhat "technical" looking entry.

    On the whole its looking good ^^ just minor updates to the pedia needed I guess =D

    Gonna mess around with the Scions in a bit to see how much has been changed--you guys have effectively squashed any chances of me catching up on lost sleep over the weekend~

    I started playing, but then decided that I shouldn't for a few days or else I'd probably fail the tests I have Monday.


    Why did the Scions have 3 apparently identical versions of Training Yards buildable?

    (Note: I suppose I could have caused some problems by not doing a fresh install of FfH first. I'm not sure if my changes could have messed things up.)

    Note on the "No Worker XP" Gameoption: It only disabled the XP from attributes of the worker (Apptitude), not from Buildings. So anyone who Mod-mod-mod's the game to have buildings which grant XP caps for workers will see Workers gaining XP even with the gameoption enabled, but only if they sit in a city with the proper buildings.

    Archery Range doesn't do a cap, it is the Fletcher which does. Hunting Lodges though are a small typo in the XML causing them not to work.

    I'm using Vista, and as noted elsewhere mine crashes as the game is creating the map. So not the exact same thing, but still the only time I have had crash problems with FFH.

    Well, the current XML and release has the Fletcher granting the XP cap. It would make sense that it was intended for the Archery Range to do so instead however, as it is somewhere you go to train, and a Fletcher is something you require to BECOME.

    Also, about the Well: It is useful as a health boosting building, however it is more expensive than the Herbalist but considerably less powerful. Perhaps either a slight boost or slight hammer cost reduction would be in order?
