Water Colors V1.01

Author File Description
Alexandergreat3 Description:
Design and beautify your rivers and lakes with any colors of your choice with this add-on that gives your Editor 19 water colors from Red to White! A must-have tool for serious, creative, and enthusiastic Scenario designers!

Version: 1.01

>> Fixed some bugs that caused some colors to not show up
>> Added 1 more color: Checker


>> Put the file waterbodies.xml into the Age of Mythology's data folder
(C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Age of Mythology\data)

>> WARNING: If you have existing CUSTOM water types (either you created or downloaded), I suggest you copy/paste the codes of these 19 river types over to your existing waterbodies.xml, so the existing water don't get erased.


>> This is NOT a mod to the game data, so it will NOT cause out of sync error online.
>> When you create your scenarios with these colors, other people playing your scenarios do NOT need to download these colors to see them!

>> These 19 river types are in the water tool; their names begin with the word COLOR (e.g. "COLOR red")
>> Different rivers having different colors can be blend to create like a rainbow


For additional helps, please ask your questions in this thread at the scenario forum:

This was a really great mod! The only things I didn't really like were that it modified some of the options that you had before, and some of them don't work (black, for example). It's a really useful tool for designers, especially white and gray brushes for storms. The blues enhanced options and gave a tropical feel to any location.

Additional Comments:
The underlying texture choice was a bit strange, and often didn't fit the color too well, but very nice. I learned a lot from this mod.

I believe you forgot to read the installation instruction, as it clearly stated that if users have existing custom waters, they should copy the codes over to prevent their waters from getting overwritten.

The black color does work. Sometimes when the color doesn't show up, it's an editor bug. You need to playtest the map, and then return to the editor, and the bug should be fixed.

Thank you for your comments and review :).
Nice mod! I rate it a 4 :P

Just one thing though... the fountain thing, shouldent it shoot up like a fountain?

Fountain... ? This file is for water colors... are you sure you're commenting on the right file? ;-).

By the way, please download the updated version 1.01.
PrplPplEater Ok they all work now. =)

When you said checkered, I was thinking chess board not AoM error. =P
nottud Well, if you had managed to bring this mod out, you would have beaten me to the checked terrain discovery! You can copy and paste the checked terrain and add it to your scenarios!

Anyway, very good mod!

You know, the funny thing was that I was trying to fix some bugs with the color not showing up, and it turned out that the "Checker terrain" is actually an error where the game cannot read certain river data =).


Thank you for the comments and review =).
nottud I think it comes when it tried to paint a terrain on the land which it cannot. It cannot paint "water" on land. Try in the editor and you cannot.

I found it when I was random map scripting and it told it to place water but instead it placed the strange checked terrain.

Anyway, I have now modded it into a forest type where it will place the checked terrain but without the forest but in the same way as you have with the water.
