Default question about modifying age

i want a spell that decreases the age of unit, but not a ritual one, but a buff to permanently modify army units instead of commanders-only.
I went ahead and tried this

#newspell
#copyspell "Rejuvenate"
#name "Rejuvenating Winds"
#description "By drawing in the astral winds, the mage can shroud a few fellow warriors with a small regeneration effect in addition to make them younger by 4 years."
#school 1
#researchlevel 2
#path 0 4
#pathlevel 0 1
#fatiguecost 60
#effect 101
#aoe 3005
#precision 2
#range 5015
#damage -4
#end


snce effect 101 is age according to the spell db. However, the mage doesnt cast the spell.
The damage -4 value is taking from rejuvenate where the actual age-decrease is measured in negative damage.

Tested it a while ago. Effect number 101 does nothing even if you trick the AI into casting the spell.

I would say copy the spell/effect which causes units to age on the battlefield(decay?) and then try reversing the results.

Is it really helpful to give modding advice when you have no idea what you're talking about?

Well, trying to reverse-engineer decay effects wont really work, thats true.
When i figured that effect 101 doesnt work, i thought about one more way. I copied the rejuvenate-spell (blood) and tried to make it a battlefield spell instead of being a ritual and added AoE and stuff. Unfortunlly, it was still listed as a ritual buff.

You know, altering age would be a really cool effect. For one, you could fix up yoru Triarus (MA Arco vets) but whats more important you could create a spell that would considerable buff the troops it hits in exchange for some old-age effects or you could create some kind of artillery that inflicts enemy tropps with considerable old age, i.e. AoE nerf.

man so many great ideas, shame.

You can make troops older by making use of the decay spell.

Just can't make them younger on the battlefield.
