    Under ERA Launcher v2.57, WOG with the latest Third Upgrade Mod, the computers still manage to get the FLY spell even when that spell is banned in all places.
    So I’m not sure how they are getting it, no visits to a dragon utopia.
    Also, the computer players never build their third upgrade creatures.
    And finally, the commanders are no longer limited to 4 skills at level up.

    Thanks for the great work on these mods.

      Hi Grnat, unfortunately you have to wait for the new version of TUM, which will solve such bugs.

      1. G Grant

        Ah I see, well that makes sense. I will enjoy the game as is (very much) until the TUM is updated then.

        Thank you

      AI gets fly -> This is caused by Human AI mod

      Also, the computer players never build their third upgrade creatures. – > I cannot confirm this

      And finally, the commanders are no longer limited to 4 skills at level up. -> Disable Power stones options in WoG (or maybe Which Huts)

      1. G Grant

        “AI gets fly -> This is caused by Human AI mod”
        Can the Fly option be turned off, or an option added to turn it off? Or is this a bug?

        “Also, the computer players never build their third upgrade creatures. – > I cannot confirm this”
        I’ve played multiple games through several months, and none of the computers will build the third upgrade building now.

        “And finally, the commanders are no longer limited to 4 skills at level up. -> Disable Power stones options in WoG (or maybe Which Huts)”
        The 5th and 6th commander skills are available as normal level ups, not due to power stones or witch huts.

        Everything else seems to be working great, thanks.


    Please fix a bug with Mithrill gold castle income upgrade. Its remains the same value of mithril after you spent for upgrade

      I just noticed this, I’m going to report it to the author. Thanks!

    I tried setting the config file for the Human AI mod to not allow the fly spell, by setting the level at which the AI gets Fly to -1, but they still get the Fly spell regardless.


    Hello.One more question: from the last update, now you can upgrade creatures to lvl2 in castle without having 2lvl building. Its a bug or game chages? As i didnt change anything in wog options. Thanks.

    1. Liso1 (Post author)

      I just tried it, but everything works as it should for me.
      But I installed the last ERA 3 Launcher build from scratch, you can try it too.
