[Editor] Limit of animated objects (fire and smoke effects)

Game Version:

  • Build: 4941835
  • Platform: Steam
  • Operating System: Windows 8.1
  • Gamertag: TheChocoMousse


I am currently working on a very large map of Aoe2:DE.
There’s many animated smoke and fire objects on the map, but none appear ingame while they do appear on the map editor.

I loaded a new map to find the maximum limit of animated objects i can put before they start vanishing. My results are quite interesting. Altough they do disappear at around 130-150 objects, they dont vanish all at once. It seems that they disappear gradually, depending on the amount of other animated objects present on the map.

In short, i would like to know if its a bug or simply an intentional limitation due to the engine of the game.

I opened a post on the modding community to see if someone else had the same issue : Trouble with fire and Smoke effects

Thanks in advance !

Reproduction Steps:

Here’s how to reproduce the problem:

  1. Simply put more than 200 fire or smoke effects (animated objects) on a map in the editor.

  2. Test the map.
