The bastards keep dying..

I'm an experienced scn designer and I made a couple for AoM didn't release them, just testing for practice. But I want to start a campaign, but I can't keep those damn mercenaries alive.

Any help here?

Loop a "Change Object Type" effect on them, changing them to Mercenaries before they die. Its what I did in King of Titans in the "choosing area", but there's one problem if you plan on using the Mercenary to move around and do stuff. Everytime that effect fires, it'll stop the Mercenary from whatever it was doing.

There is a trick that lets you research a technology over and over and over, and then the effects keep multiplying. So if there is some kind of tech that increases merc life, you just keep researching that. Look around for posts about it

    Actually if you download Vachu's Object Editor, you can go to the merc and just remove the 'lifespan' action. However, doing so would mean you can't play online until you reset it back to normal.

    I think one of Hathor's special improvements would do that... I just don't remember it's name.

    It's called 'Medjay', and you were right, it is researched under Hathor.

    I wonder if you can loop the 'set tech status' to 'Atef Crown' (under Osiris) to make your minions live forever? I know it improves the mummy's minions, but it might work on scenario minions. I have to try it out (I'm working on a scenario with demons, so they'll be perfect).

    The tech is Medjay. It makes mercenaries live 30 seconds longer. Create a looping trigger with condition: unit alive (some hidden unit) which researches the tech as often as it can, and then another trigger that stops the looping one after a few seconds of gameplay (by deleting the hidden unit). Play with the time till the Mercs live long enough. You probably won't want them to live more than an hour or two since your game won't be that long.

    But he cant put mercs in the editor either if he wants to make them available in game

    1.) Put a cinematic block where you want the merc to be

    2.) Use change unit/object to change in to merc (i think its available?)

    3.) You can keep changing the unit/object to merc every 45-50 secs which is around the life time of mercs, or use Matei's way
