# Era Scripts

* Mortal Heroes: Fixed text issue of Aura of Curse – thanks to Archer30;
* Third Class: Now if Warfare is enabled, a second warfare skill won’t be shown in the hero level up dialogue – thanks to Archer30;
* Grand Maneuver: Now the script also works on Sylvan Centaurs if either Extended Creature Upgrades or Sylvan Centaur creation is enabled. Fixed in some cases the script not working – thanks to Archer30;

# Mixed Neutrals Mod:
* Now if a stack of troops are left by a hero this stack cannot won’t be hostile – thanks to Archer30;

# WoG
– Skeleton Transformer Fix.bin: Cavaliers/Unicorns can no longer be converted to Black Knights, they would be turned into Skeletons – thanks to Archer30;
+ added missed redirection for the load game;

# WoG Scripts
+ Emerald Tower: New creature description would be added if a new ability is added to the creature by Emerald Tower – thanks to Archer30;
+ Enhanced Artifacts II: Reworked the way Diplomacy artifacts work. Now they work as additional levels of Diplomacy in negotiating with weaker monsters. This effect stacks with the hero’s Diplomacy level, max at Expert level. If the hero equip all the 3 Diplomacy artifacts, they would multiply the hero’s army strength by 3 (for calculating neutral monster joining and Thieves’ Guild) – thanks to Archer30;
* Resistance II: Fixed possible to resist own spells when equipping all the three Resistance artifacts – thanks to Archer30;
* Mithril Enhancement: Fixed not working on Advanced Witch Huts – thanks to Archer30;

* Enhanced War Machines III: Reduced the price of Ballista from 2500 to 1500. A player reported, and I reviewed the wog team’s script. Ballista costed only 750. Many players did not like the huge increase on price so I decided to get it somewhere in the middle – thanks to Archer30; daemon_n thinks that 2500 is the right cost :emo_crag:
* Emerald Tower: Fixed monster name corruption after enhancement. Fixed wrong number showed in the dialog of rejecting to enhance due to too many creatures have already enhanced – thanks to Archer30;

Neutral Stack Exp: Fixed the timing to store stack exp option variable to achieve better compatibilities – thanks to Archer30;
Note that no script should play with UN:P900 except for neutral stack exp option. Otherwise, the script can break – thanks to Archer30;

    Yeah, as specified they rewrote many core WoG scripts, including battle ones, which basically broke compatibility with every mod made in the last 10 years which required WoG scripts. I think there were other ways to improve the game but good luck anyway, that’s huge work.
