:arrow_forward: ISSUE EXPERIENCED


If you put a relic cart in a transport ship, and then sink the transport ship, the relic cart reappears on the closest land, like a normal relic. However, it turns into an unconvertible gaia unit, and the player no longer has any way of gaining control of it. This is particularly problematic for something like the second Sundjata mission, where you have to bring a relic cart to the base of the three enemies, but if it sinks, you can no longer complete that. I’m not sure you can even win by destroying the enemies, because I have tried that.

: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. Create a scenario with a transport, some water, a relic cart belonging to the player, and another unit to keep you in the game.
  2. Load the relic cart into the transport, and then delete the transport.
  3. Try and reclaim the relic cart.

:arrow_forward: EXPECTED RESULT

:point_down: What was SUPPOSED to happen if the bug you encountered were not present?

I would expect it to become a convertible gaia unit, as opposed to an unconvertible gaia unit. At the very least, I would expect to be able to win via conquest in scenarios that use a relic cart on maps with water.

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

You can literally test this pretty easily.

: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.

Hi @TheConqueror753 !

Thank you for reporting this issue with the Relic cart. We are now tracking it ( ^∇^)


This is still broken as of the april update.

relic carts spawning on land after being in a transport that is destroyed will still spawn with 0hp and be non-convertible.
