KNOWN BUGS AND ISSUES
Q: I can't select certain bombers in my Airbase! They are bombers, but their icons show as helicopters and when I click them, nothing happens.
A: This bug is related to the Light Bomber and MB-1 units. Those 2 units are new bomber units for the Industrial Age, and since the game doesn't originally have bombers in those age it doesn't recognize their unit type (hence they appear as bugged out helicopter icons in the Airbase). Use this workaround when building those units: build an airbase specifically for fighters or bombers or helicopters. Then just deploy one or all of the units docked in the base by right-clicking on the terrain (or shift-right-click to deploy all). You can also set rally points with 'R' and 'Shift+R' to cancel the rally point.
Q: I can't harvest certain rare resources! I see them but when I send a Merchant to gather them, he won't deploy.
A: I'll try to fix it as soon as I figure out how. Certain rare resources will be visible on the map but won't blink when you select a Merchant, Market, Fisherman or Dock. So always remember that the only rare resources you can harvest are the ones that are also visible (and blinking) on the minimap when selecting a Merchant, Market, Fisherman or Dock.
Q: Some textures aren't displaying right, or flicker!
A: (ONLY FOR NON-STEAM VERSION!) Make sure you copied the iface_buildings_CTW.tga, iface_units_03.tga and iface_units_03_half.tga to \art folder and overwritten files (if non-Steam version)! If you haven't messed with the folder structure of the .rar file and extracted to your game directory, it should work fine!
Q: The game crashed during loading of a map!
A: Since the mod increases the 'Big Huge' map size by 20%, certain maps may not load at this size. Known maps with this issue are Atlantic Sea Power, East Meets West and Nile Delta. When playing these maps, set map size to 'Huge' or lower to avoid crashes.
Q: Some buildings/units cost several hundred thousand resources!
A: This is a workaround I did in order to prevent having more than one building or unit (mostly unique buildings and unique units). I basically set the support cost of those buildings to over 200k resources so you could never gain enough resources to build another one after the first one is built.
Q: Some player scores go over several million at certain points in the game!
A: This is related to the above issue. Since certain buildings have an unobtainable support cost, the player who destroys said building/unit gets a much higher score for it (because the unit is considered much more expensive because of this increased support cost).
Q: I can't produce any new units / new units have issues with textures / unit prices are messed up / etc.
A: This can be caused by a lot of different things, but usually it's because the mod is conflicting with another mod that's also active. If on Steam, unsubscribe from any other mods as that causes issues with my mod. If that fails, try unsubscribing to the mod and re-subscribing. If that fails, download the mod manually from this website (the 'Steam version') and install the mod manually (read instructions here: Installing the mod). In the main menu of the game, go to 'Tools and Extras' and make sure that only one version of the mod is active: either the LOCAL version (the one installed manually) or the one that doesn't say LOCAL at the end (subscribed on the Workshop).
Q: I get an error followed by a crash ("NO DEFAULT UNIT G PIECE" or similar)!
A: This can be caused by a whole lot of reasons. I have tested the mod several times and this usually happens when I update the mod to a newer version. However, as of 5.94.1 I haven't encountered this bug as of yet. Make sure to follow these steps before posting a bug report:
- Try unsubscribing and resubscribing to the mod (reported to work by several users)
- Since the mod has been posted on the Steam Workshop it now has a different file structure, so make sure you delete ALL of the mod's folders from the 'mods' folder in "...\Steam\steamapps\common\Rise of Nations\mods" before subscribing to the mod. Make sure you close Steam before doing this.
- You can also try deleting your "My Documents/My Games/Rise of Nations" and "AppData/Roaming/Microsoft Games/Rise of Nations" folders in case it still doesn't work.
P.S.: This WILL delete your save games and reset your player profile!
- In case it still doesn't work, please follow this link to the mod group page on Steam (Steamcommunity.com) and post under the 'BUG REPORTS' section (you don't need to join the group) or post a comment here under the latest downloadable link.
