It's not easy creating an entire faction or era. Post your work and collaborate in this forum.

It checks if you have TRAIT_ATTUNED, then adds the factions itself. This would work fine through ID changes, so long as you don't change the name of the EoM folder.

We could try to test this when I release the next version of Era of Myths, but I'd like some feedback from the EE maintainer before I do.
"There are two kinds of old men in the world. The kind who didn't go to war and who say that they should have lived fast died young and left a handsome corpse and the old men who did go to war and who say that there is no such thing as a handsome corpse."

I think this idea is excellent if it doesn't end up causing problems with era combinations.

Now the only other issue is if it kills its utility by being in a combined era (since the combined ID cannot really be updated).

Sure, that makes it so the keeping-in-sync thing doesn't work for combined eras, but is there any way it's worse than not having it? It seems like you're complaining about a lack of a feature rather than about a bug.

It might work most likely. The EE has a deteckt.cfg file, and this file could contain a macro including the ID. If it also contains another macro including the Version even the combined Era could stay sync.*
*I think you can use macros inside the ID,

Code: Select all

id=ee_eom_default_v{GET_EE_VERSION}_delta3

Hm, I would like to expand my original request that seems to have found some good use: only do it if the versions are incompatible :) (I assume that from time to time you make an art-only update, those should not cause OOS and so don't need a new id).

/tsr - that just popped into the MP server for 10 mins and doesn't really want to download EE again if it's not strictly necessary

Would this still allow campaigns_client.py to automatically update installed addons?
