Updated version of Rambit's TDII:


Features from V2 to V3

Fixed food-trade cheat

All Forage bush and Forager's base work rate is divided by 100. By this change the Forager player cannot accumulate too much food to avoid the food remover trigger, while the gathering rate is unchanged.

Reduced trade lag

All trading units cost 2x, trained 2x slower, need 2 pop but also have 2x work rate. By all this duplicates the trading income not changed, but the number of units on the map is half. This is a tested and working lag-reducing method by X-patch mod.

Axe tower vote

Axe tower always has been a dilemma to allow or not. In v3 you can vote about it in the first 10 minutes at middle of the map. In that case the vote ends draw, it will result as allowed.

Non-stucked trade units

By giving 0.3 extra drop range to trading units, the chance to getting stucked at market is greatly reduced.

Trade rebalance

Previously many trade unit's actual value, work rate and avg income were not carefully calculated. From 1.4 version some are changed. In this data-collection all previous and new info are listed (xlsx edition):

Villager fixed pop

Villagers if changing the gathering/type no longer have different population.

Computer no longer help

In v3 the computer players (Ai) no longer can be used to send resources at begin, or help in longer term (p2).

Unintended Dock upgrades

In certain situation some players were able to research an unintended technology in dock. Now all technologies from Dock are removed.

Corrected text lines

Lot of incorrect and missing text lines/tooltips are fixed.

Static map

Previously the map versions made issues and confuses, but in this edition the map:
=V= TDII TeamBonus v3.scx will be the one and only. In future updates no need to get the new map from somewhere, it's part of the data mod. Previous map versions for TDII TeamBonus V2 may won't be compatible with V3.

Improved achievements

After a match the achievements shows more useful statics. You can check how many Dark/Feudal, Castle/Imperial and Axe Towers has been built by the players.

New anti-delete

If Userpatch 1.5 is used, then Market, Dock and Villagers is not possible to delete. Air-dock is not working sadly, due to id/class issue. (villagers are still affected by triggers)

Faster rounds

All rounds comes 30 sec earlier. This not sounds much, but a full match will be 20min shorter in total. This will result in more intensive endgame and possibly more stronger rush options.

Reworked end-game

The Mega ram final level in the previous version was laggy, frustrating and unnecessarily long. By giving the rams better base armor, also +1 melee armor for rams and all towers lose 5% attack speed in every minutes, the endgame will be much more challenging and way faster.

Possible changes for next version:
1.7 - Extending the hidden tower block to prevent vote-abuse
1.7 - Unbuildable trade-roads
