I was trying to work out how to put fish on my random map so I classed an area of the random map in the script as water and this happened!

I then got my friend - Da_Ork_boyz to see if it appeared on his computer. It did!

I then copied the checked tile and pasted it onto a black scenario and looked at the scenario summary to see what it classed the terrain type as, The results are given below:

According to the scenario summary, I have placed the water terrain type on the land!!!

I then saved the scenario and let my friend download it. To see if it will appear online on a scenario because all terrain mods don't! It APPEARED!!!

You have age of mythology's FIRST new terrain type which actually appears online!

Here is a use of it on an old favorite map!

The characteristics of the terrain type is as follows:

Walk on it: no
Build on it: no
sail on it: no

It counts just as a cliff type although it is water according to the scenario summary!

I would like to thank Da_ork_boyz for helping me test this discovery out! I am going to put this checked terrain for download on a template for you all to use. Just load it and use the terrain copy function and then paste it on your other scenario.

Here is a link to the download which I have uploaded so you can all download it right now and not have to wait for it to appear on heavengames!

yep, it happens on modding as well that happens when you type an invalid command that defines a terrains, or other bodies.

for instance, when i was working on the terrain modpack and metalica tribute mod, it happened because in the .xmb file I made a typo on one of the terrains. therefore, it display a set of random colors indicating that there was no command to define and display.

When i was working on a script, i loaded the map and it was just black. you could see the layers but the map was full with fog of war. the camera could not move, and the only sound it made was like the plenty vault.

so when making or editing a script file or having to edit commands when making terrains and stuff like that, it makes those kind of weird errors when not done right....at least in my case.

@Auron - I had the map done but this was from a temporary edit when I was atempting to format the map so fish would appear.

It's a great random map though. Could you tell me how to add fish or group objects because I don't know how to!

DOWNLOAD NOW!

In the paint land and paint terrain there is a water but it doesnt do anything, I wonder if this is it.
Do you think you could turn this terrain into a paintable terrain so we don't have to copy and paste.

This terrain acts like the Greek Road Burnt terrain. There seems to be some kind of grid that this uses, if you copy just 1 square of red and paint it you get the other colors to in the same grid shape thing.

Well that is obvious. It's like any old terrain.

Yes, it is that "water" terrain type but it is on land.

As you can see, some designers had already encountered this terrain before. Though you seem to say that you found the trick

I doubt if Celsus even can edit a RM. BUT no offence, Celsus. I just think that. I have nothing against you.

I have seen that terrain ages ago but it is the first time I have got it to appear on a MULTIPLAYER scenario and people can actually see it!

Quoted from a mythical creature, combined with alphanumeric digits:

Holy!!! Thats just... well its not a terrain! Its all a computers primary colours!

UNCLE CAESAR'S CORRECTION: My child, grey is not a primary colour.

You see, white light is a combination of all of the colours of light, and of course, black is the absence of light (which is why the Wicked Witch of the West wears such an evil- inspiring cape- the absence of light is surely the absence of good). I hope that you realise that a combination of the two is not a primary colour- grey is a combination of white and black, therefore good and bad- like a half Hulk. And since when was a half Hulk a primary colour Titan602? Exactly.

The 3 primary colors, yellow, red, blue, are different from the 3 primary colors of LIGHT, blue, red, green.

Last night I made a mini scenario using this terrain.

Let's raise a hurray to the discovery of the new terrain type!

I'm a little bit late? Right?

Well anyway...
