Hi. I’ve been playing AoE III DE for a little while, now. And today I noticed that the Advanced Trading Post (which should have an attack) doesn’t fire upon ennemies anymore, even when that said trading post is attacked. I’ve played two games today (both with the British civilization in skirmish mode) and that bug happened in both games.

Here’s the steps to reproduce the issue:

  3. Build an Advanced Trading Post anywhere on the map.
  4. Wait for an ennemy to attack your Advanced Trading Post(s)

Well, the Advanced Trading Post would actually FIRE upon the ennemy.

Heey @DMProtector, thank you for the report. We’re currently already tracking this issue :smiley:


Okay, thanks… Just wanted to make sure you guys knew about it. I love this game, by the way. I remember buying the CD version ages ago… and now I bought the Definitive Edition on Steam… That’s how much I like it. :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

Although, I don’t remember the CD version being that buggy… :beetle:
