<img style="padding-right:3px;" align="left" src="http://www.dawnoffantasy.com/icons/newsicon.png" />With another patch we are moving a step closer to our goal of making DoF virtually bug free by the end of the month. This time we looked at fixing last of a few remaining major issues - including PvP, CoOp victory and progress, as well a major issue with wall construction and missing buildings. And finally - we resolved the final issue that could have caused the game server downtime. As a list of known issues grows shorter and shorter we would like to ask our community to help by bringing any remaining issues to our attention. And we have another great patch coming to you this weekend.

Some remaining issues

Elf units getting stuck in greencloud-> remove greencloud should be the best choice, changing formations fast should be possible for elves too, also it allready costs a huge amount of energy to change the formation, that should be enough.

Units bypassing gates and attacking it from all sides or glitching through and destroying the gate gears-> long term fix to not bypass, short term maybe remove gate gears

Units duplicating on sieges-> thought it was fixed, but got some sheeps for free today.

Elven Gate gear invisible

Fresh units entering combat allready being damaged

sheep unicorn exploit, making em work in viewmode, exiting and they still work -> much better then workcamps

Tree symbiosis in outside camps of elf cities can create gold deposits that get workers stuck after a while

Mounted Grandmasters and Rangers dont get any bonus from stone formation-> remove and
wind only or add bonuses

If sieged by Elven Grandmasters, human towns dont seem to activate their oil at the gates.

Prices on upgrades/units/etc not shown correctly if influenced by traits or region

Orc Trait Gatherer not working correctly, doesnt add the 30% extra army storage it promises

Unlimited unit lvling in regeneration camps in view mode -> if damage is low enough units will hit each other forever and lvl up while being healed by wells or barns or oasis that have a regeneration ability in view mode.

Elf siege Uttal Atros and Gelmeerin -> too easy because of 1 gate, you destroy the gate and rush to fortress lord with a fast hero unit to win in 2 min -> more gates or tougher boss.

If you siege solo, units are higher lvl but they have not spent their points, only the reinforcements after 20 min have spent their points.

Questing, not a bug, but please let us accept and finish the repeatable quests directly through the diplomacy screen or at leasteasier, running through town 100 times to see the questguy makes you go crazy

Coop changing 48h protection timer into 10 min

Unit balancing, the uber accuracy of crossbows, the 100/60/100 slayers, the weak elven rangers, the hitbox of knights (cant hit gates and get hit), the 1560dam 1800range marauders etc.

Using Knights i often encounter a bug that i cant move and walk with one click anymore but only with two clicks, thus always running with units.

NPCs destroying their own gatehouses if you just stand with a unit at the gate

Armies moving while view mode is activated ->For example you are in Dragonland Sissilistra you start moving to a town, then you enter the view mode, kill all dragons and loot, once youre done you are at the town you moved to. Well this could be intended I guess.


Those that I remember for now, hope it helps. A problem is that you start living with some bugs and you wont report em anymore

Elf units getting stuck in greencloud

An extremely annoying problem.

Laradon, great post - thanks for the info, I can confirm we do plan to have good deal of that resolved by May 1st.

But hey guys - what is it about the Green Cloud? From forest spirit? or from construction? Please provide more details - first time I hear about this.

No the greencloud is the elven formation change. It tends to always make problems, sometimes they stop attacking after formationchange, sometimes they get stuck in it and the cloud around the units doesnt disappear etc. I wont even dare to use a formationchange in pvp, because if that bug happens the enemy can kill all those units and they wont attack. If someone in Help tells me his Elf units stoped attacking, I always ask if he did a formationchange before that. And thats always the case.

Hello guys,

Im probably comming back.
Yeah, I reported that long time before: changing formations make some elven units stuck. Another bugs that I still see:

-elven fire arrows and balista fire shots dont set the ground on fire like other races
-some graviolas are not hiding underground in town mode
-cloaked units are still visible for other players
-fog of war is still not working, making any kind of ambush or strategy move impossible because the enemy can predict your moves. This is the big issue for me.

Exactly as Laradon states it. I have encountered that bug too many times, precisely as Laradon describes the situation, and like him, I do not dare attempt an Elven formation change (to Wind Stance) in circumstances when it could lead to disaster -- notably because of unresponsive Rangers, caught in their green cloud.

Is there a way to fix it the wall issue?

Now that the wall building doesnt reset I was hoping it would finish my walls but they are not continuing to build - Am i permenantly stuck like this now or is there some way to fix it? The continue wall building button no longer exists.

Hey, um i am sure this update is great but i can't access it I am on steam and it says that my game client is incorrect. I have tried several times and I can't find an update button. I saw a message saying that the server was shutting down so i logged off several minutes before. Since then i can not relog on.

I had a small question about the gameplay ..... When you're sieging a fort or a castle .... I had a problem of my units having difficulty walking on the wall ... They just stay down when I click attack those on the wall .... Let's just say they don't move as we say .... Ofcourse I got my ladders on the wall , just to be clear of myself

Sometimes going offline on steam, and then going online with steam, will fix it and update your game.. Everytime a patch comes out, i have to go offline and then online for my game to update..try that

Be sure to have auto-updating turned on. Right click on DOF -> Game properties -> Updates. :)
