[bug] TC range does not increase with Fletching/Bodking Arrow/Bracerupgrades, but Tech Tree says so

This renders the Malian’s Unique Tech “Tiger” a lot less useful. The difference between range 6 and range 8 is… a lot of area.
The attack works correctly though. Also for chemistry.


Vikings too.
Haven’t tested whether the range is actually affected, but meh… someone else can confirm that.

This is by design, not a bug. Reminder to google stuff like this before cluttering the bug report forum.

Not clutter, because in that case I expended way too much effort to document a wrong tooltip in the tech tree.

I did google it, now. Apparently the increased range is not a thing since 2013.
But the “the description has been wrong for 7 years, thus I’m cluttering the forums” is a bit uncharitable.
I don’t usually google things, when they seem to be obvious bugs.

In any case, I tried figuring out whether the new sheep-scouting behaviour is a “balance change” in DE.
It might be, and I’d be just cluttering the forum, which I don’t want.


How would you go about figuring that out, specifically? I’ve been looking for a list of all changes that Age2: DE made, but I must have been blind.
If that exists out there, I’d like a link. [call me untalented at googling, if it’s findable, I deserve that]

Town Centers don’t get increased range from blacksmith upgrades since The Conquerors came out in 2001. But I agree that the DE tooltip is clearly wrong.
