PLEASE NOTE: This topic is not about game/civilization balances (which might come up as another matter in a separate topic), but game bugs, issues, limitations and suggestions instead. The point of this topic is pretty important, so we would like to keep it clear and straightforward. Any flaming and off-topic discussion will be deleted without any prior notice. Thanks for understanding.
Hi to the whole community,
Age of Empires II: The Conquerors (AoC) is more than 10 years old game, and as such has some bugs that were discovered through the years, but there was no one to fix them because the official support for the game has been canceled, or the fixes weren`t very convenient / were scattered inside different patches (not working together).
This might change in the (near?) future (read here). As life teaches us not to believe in words till we see the deeds, we can`t say if it`s really going to happen, but I just know that we would all like it to be so. I also know that what we can actually do as a community is to list all those bugs we discovered through the years, whether they irritated us, or we used them as an advantage, so if anyone gets a chance to fix them, he can check this list and get working.
We`ll keep the list updated, trying to make it clear as much as possible. Feel free to discuss it, and suggest bugs/issues/limitations/improvements not on the list yet (please check first if it`s already on the list before you post), preferably with an explanation how to recreate it / when does the bug or issue happen, or with detailed explanation if it`s a game improvement suggestion (though please try to be realistic about it, lol).
I repeat, no one promises that this will ever be fixed / implemented, but if there`s any possibility, the first step would be to make a to-do list, and what we can do is make that first step. If you find this topic a waste of time, please stay out of it (and let the rest of us at least dream about it happening, lol).
This is not an easy task, so please be constructive, straightforward, and let us make this easier for all of us.
Thanks for understanding, and your support.
Let us try to do something good for this game, so we can all enjoy it for decades to come
