:arrow_forward: ISSUE EXPERIENCED

Trebuchet projectiles don’t have an impact animation after chemistry has been researched eg when the projectile hits a unit or building there is no animation to indicate a successful hit. If chemistry is not researched this issue does not occur. The issue only occurs when the projectile is a flaming boulder which is caused by the chemistry technology.

Also heavy scorpions have no firing sound! I’m sure it’s a easy fix compared to everything else they have to deal with.

Scenarios editor granary has a wrong icon too.

Hey guys, this is a known issue and is already tracked.
Have a nice day!
