Just two quick questions: 1 is it possible to create (or does there exist) a land/province/special site that heals the afflictions of units on it?

2 is it possible to create (or does there exist) an amphibious type of province, so that land only and water only units can move over it?

Thanks a lot!

Great ideas, but No for both.

It was a new request.
I was playing with the Tower map and I wanted to set it up so that the human player always started at the bottom. The description would be "fight your way to the top of the tower. You only have to fight one enemy at a time but that last one is going to be a whopper" or something like that. But with the commands we have now, I cant figure out how it can be done without selecting the nation that the human plays.

Hum, maybe by pre selecting all AI nations and giving them #specstart provinces. Then just add a #start province and th e human player should have it.

But of course this means having non random opponents

Right. I could do it if I create a map for each nation that people can play.

Interesting. What is the status of the project for Dominions 3? You could use the Orania special provinces as a default database for testing. I don't know much about the program, but other than rarity, terrain required, etc, would it be easy to define each special province simply as you would in a .MAP file, which the generator just copies and pastes?

Perhaps a program the analyses a plain .MAP file with its terrain types and outputs a .MAP file with some randomised special provinces?

I started such a project recently, and it is now available online at http://dominions.realites.org
(you can also download the whole source code if you wish)

The project has started recently so the list of special provinces is still small (http://dominions.realites.org/?actio...cial_provinces), but you're welcome to make suggestions of new provinces and their terrain types requirements.

To my counting there are now 3 such projects being actively worked on.

How advanced are the 2 others and are they still active ? (link ?)

I'd be happy to exchange ideas with fellow developpers.

I started my project inspired by your YaBasic script, feeling that there was a need, but if there are already others project that are more advanced that mine, maybe I should turn my effort to other features (I could for exemple make an online mod editor, I don't think there's already anything like that currently for dom3).

And of course I'm ready to accept any suggestion as to what features the community would need from fan made scripts or online tools.

Seeing as how they're not currently present in the game, I'd like to request officially a land/province/special site that heals the afflictions of units on it, and an amphibious type of province, so that land only and water only units can move over it. Thanks.

Sorry, but this is not possible with the current map modding commands. We'll have to way for illwinter to expand the commands.

Yeah, I'm hoping they can add them soon, so that's why I'm requesting them, so the Devs know there's a demand for such sites.
