Confused? Encountered a problem in the game?
Ask your question here and we can help!


This is the question thread! A testament to the continuing aspirations of scenario designers and the rest of the active community. In order to save the forum from needless clutter, please post all questions in this thread rather than making your own threads. Don't be shy!


A Brief FAQ



  • Please help me, I can't find where the games files on my computer are for downloading stuff to put in them, editing them, and getting my scenario and recorded game files.
    There are two paths for the Age of Mythology folders and files.
    (Documents-->My Games-->Age of Mythology) and (My Computer-->C: Drive-->Program Files-->Microsoft Games-->Age of Mythology)

  • Every time I playtest my map, it just ends after like 5 seconds and says I won or lost!
    This is an extremely common problem for newer people. Go in the editor, and go to edit, scenario data, and then click the box next to Victory Conditions to turn it off.

  • I started a new map, and now there is some sort of infinite land showing at the edges of the map, and it is making it extremely laggy!
    Select this link to see how to fix the problem.

  • In triggers that have the protounit lists, most of the units have different names! This is extremely confusing, and I can't find the protounit list name for a unit.
    Select the unit you want to know the protounit name of, and press ALT+A. Or go to the cinematics menu in the editor, and select animations. The protounit name of the selected unit is in the black bar at the top of the animations window.

  • How do you change a units size and rotate it in the editor?
    Press K on your keyboard to make objects bigger, and shift + K to make objects smaller (TT only). To rotate a unit, press Ctrl + an arrow key to move it around in different positions.

  • How do I change a units stats for a scenario?
    Use the Modify Protounit effect in a trigger (TT only). For AoM (Vanilla), you can use the effect Set Tech Status, and then grant technologies for the specific things you want to boost, and you can grant any number of a technology to keep changing stats.

  • How do I change the position of the camera in the editor?
    First you need to unlock the camera, press Ctrl + Alt + C on your keyboard to do so, now you can press + on your keyboard to zoom in, and - to zoom out, to change the angle of pitch, you can press A to go up and Z to go down.

  • Why doesn't the computer do anything in the map I made?
    Your computer opponent needs an AI to operate. Go to 'Players' in the editor and on the slot for your opponent, go all the way to the right and select AI, and choose aomdefaultai.xs (for AoM Vanilla), or aomxdefaultai.xs (for AoM: The Titans). You can also use triggers to make your opponent attack you. Commonly used are Army triggers to make units for the computer to use against you.

  • I want to be able to have more units than the game allows, how can I have over 300 population?
    1. Use the Modify Protounit effect to make a protounit have a population cost of a very extremely high number, like 999999999. Make sure that it is a protounit that you cant normally get ingame by yourself. Then just place two of them somewhere on the map, and they will make the population for that player go to a negative number, and be infinite.
    2. Use the Modify Protounit effect to modify every protounit that you would be able to have ingame and use to play with. Change each of those protounits to have a population cost of zero, 0.

  • How do I make units regenerate?
    Use the effect damage unit or damage unit percent, and put in a negative number.

  • Help! My triggers have stopped working!
    Using run immediately, quotations in chats, linking camera tracks, sound timers and decimals in conditions like timer and distance to unit effect this. If you are unsure about what is the source, outline what you did, and we can help.

  • Army deploy doesn't work online but its fine when I Playtest!
    It doesn't work for computers. Deploy the army as player 1, and then use army convert to your desired player. There are many other triggers that work only for single player mode, aka not online. Ask around if you are uncertain or need help with online scenarios.

  • Why can't I modify the attack of some units?
    You can't change the attack of some units, because they use a special attack to fight with. The units are, ManoWar, Son of Osiris, Son of Oriris XP, Petsuchos, and Circe.

  • Is there a way to change Mother Nature's (Player 0) color, name, and god?
    Yes there is! A utility has been created to do so, CLICK HERE to get it.

  • Who is the best pony ever?
    Obviously it's Rainbow Dash, you foal.


  • meh, you can give the thread to Lew

    So is THAT the game we are playing, boy?
    Anyway, I'm wondering. Thy, when you say you're under the floorboard, is your avatar the floorboard?

    Current scenarios working on:
    104th SOAP, Plants vs. Zombies (paused), Sovothym RPG
    Scenario guarantee: I will NEVER include foul language in my games. AoM is a T rated game, for violence. Let's keep it that way.

    Heh no, it's my failed attempt at a Sasquatch. I make all of my own avatars and change em fairly regularly. They used to be good (zombie had the best reaction), but seem to be getting progessively worse ;/

    I thought this one resembled a plank of wood too. Let's pretend that's what it is eh?

    I'll make something new

    Robot or Goblin


    I will peanuts

    Plus, be sure to add Winston's thread to the previous threads list, and make the title green if you can cause it's cool.

    And in every other forum, yes. This time I'm going to try and include another condition that means it only happens in this forum. It worked at SPH, so hoping it will work here.

    I hope you are not
    talking 'bout the haiku thing
    'cause that was Elrich

    But Thunder was once
    the Seraph of this Heaven
    and he was the first

    Therefore I wonder
    what our good ol' Seraph did
    when he had spare time

    Also, your haiku
    is lacking a syllable
    in its second line

    oh, I don't get
    how that related to what
    Yeebaagooon had said

    Also thanks for pointing
    out that Steak missed a single
    syllable silly Steak

    I included this
    last haiku so that I could
    do my sign off ~ Khan

    Your syllables could
    use some work here and there too
    but it don't matter

    It relates because
    Thunder could have put colours
    on topics back then

    Or he could just have
    bolded their titles for fun
    to cause interest

    When I browse old threads
    I find odd bolded titles
    in a green colour

    Though the green is nice
    I wonder what ol' Thunder
    did with his powers

    That's the relation
    my post has with Yeebaagoon's
    I hope you see now
