H3: ban grail on random maps

Postby Jötunn » Jan 11 2019, 16:33

Is there any mod to do that?


That grail is just an annoying and gamebreaking mechanic. I'm generally doing better than the computer, but the computer wins, because he has the grail. I've failed quite much, but I still win, because the grail was right between my castle and the last obelis I needed.

Also, it encourages you to save-dig-reload-tryagain, because otherwise if you lose, it will be RNG to complain about, not you.

Can't I just have a fair play without the grail? Or, at least, a mod that would make grail always appear on neutral territory.

As for mod I don't know about any.

You are asking about "random maps" and there's no in game solution. Of course, you can save that map, and edit it in the map editor. If you are really, really curious you can use "Map Editor Unleashed"

Of course, that you don't need it. The simplest fix would be to remove all obelisks, or to place grail manually or you can create grail's towns.

hmm, I don'T play WoG and I hate it for its bugs and crashes, so no map editor unleashed for me.

The Unleashed Map Editor is SoD and H3C compatible.

I don't understand the poster's concerns. Most veteran players should feel the same - the grail contributes minimally to victory or defeat if you are an experienced player versus the computer. I can't count the number of times when I have trashed a strangely numerous AI only to find that the AI has a grail structure.

On a human player, the grail makes a significant difference, of course.
