:arrow_forward: ISSUE EXPERIENCED

In an attempt to familiarise myself with the map “Volcanic Island”, I decided to generate some maps in the Single Player mode to figure out how to best play it. I used cheat codes “marco” and “polo” to see the entire map, that way I could really look into what could be viable or not.

I paused the game immediately to look around, and noticed that my deer patch spawned next to my opponent’s(an AI) deer patch, essentially giving them 8 deer while I had none.

:arrow_forward: FREQUENCY OF ISSUE

:point_down: How often does the issue occur? CHOSE ONE; DELETE THE REST!

I have generated the map 20 times, to see if it would happen again. I did not.

  • Less than 25% of the time / matches I play (RARELY)

:arrow_forward: REPRODUCTION STEPS

:point_down: List CLEAR and DETAILED STEPS we can take to reproduce the issue ourselves… Be descriptive!

Here’s the steps to reproduce the issue:

  1. Go to single player
  2. Start a 1v1 vs an AI on Volcanic Island
  3. Pause game on start
  4. Use cheat codes “marco” and “polo” to see the whole map
  5. Check the deer locations

:arrow_forward: EXPECTED RESULT

:point_down: What was SUPPOSED to happen if the bug you encountered were not present?
The deer being equally split between players, spawning reasonably close to whoever the deer patch “belongs” to.

:arrow_forward: IMAGE

:point_down: ALWAYS attach a PICTURE (.jpg, .png, .gif) or VIDEO (.mp4, YouTube link) that highlights the problem.

:arrow_forward: GAME FILES (SAVE / RECORDING)

:point_down: Attach a SAVE GAME (.aoe2spgame) or GAME RECORDING (.aoe2record) of the match where you encountered the issue. Link it below if using an external file service.
I tried uploading the recording file, but it says “New users cannot upload attachments”…
