Shadow Realm Expansion - Content

Expansion Content

The Shadow Realm Community Expansion is currently in a phase where it can be said to be finished. Most of the planned content included has been completed and refreshed with better graphics. There may be a few bugs left to be discovered, but the current content is considered to be stable.

In particular, when you switch the expansion ON or OFF, please use the "Restore default" option in the first screen when starting a new RMG map. Otherwise, you'll probably experience crashes. Theoretically, this should have been fixed in version 1.802, see here

The current list of known issues here is outdated. But feel free to report bugs encountered. here[]. Reports of any other issues are more than welcome!

Anyone interested in helping with the continued development of this expansion can drop by this thread[] on the official forums. All ability levels are welcome!

The Shadow Realm Community Expansion is a coherent and relatively large package of additional content for AoW3 built by a team of more than 10 volunteers for over 2 years. It contains:

- 1 new layer, the Shadow Realm layer
- 1 new playable race, the Shadow Elves
- New dwellings: Dark Elves, Living Archons, Shadow Demons
- Other new units including Shadow Demons roamers and the Archon Legionnary
- About 30 new sites including spawners, visit sites, and a new Heart.
- New Mystical City Upgrades for many of the new sites
- More than 50 new abilities
- 1 new campaign featuring 3 scenarios
- 20+ new items

A full manual of the expansion is available here[] on the AoW3 Wikia that details the newly added content.

Required Mod:
- Decodence Map Editor Content

Required for full RMG Integration:

You have to press the "Restore Default" button any time you enable to disable this mod.

I can't play the game without this mod now.
I mean that both because I like it and the game crashes when I try to play without it now.
Don't know what's caused that, but something to note.

Thank you!

The comp patch was updated yesterday. Shadow Demon dwelling pass jumped out of position in mod causing shenanigans.

Probably the reason.

It would seem the dwelling compatibility patches are to blame. Not the first time they've caused problems.

A the moment I tried to debug something mentioned. I generated 20 different map RMG with Underground enabled everytime. I had one crash upon generation which is 1/20. I had all dwellings in all succesful times with Shadow Demons, Dragons and Living Archons in the Shadow Realm. While Underground generated Dark Elves few times and all other dwellings. On each generation all structures belonging to each individual layer was correctly generated and none wrong.

Following mods were used:

Decodence - Map Editor Content + Shadow Realm Expansion - Content + Shadow Realm RMG

Before start I updated Aow III launcher. Made sure that my document folder of AoW 3 where mods are located is not on a cloud service like "One drive, Dropbox etc"

I also made sure to... press "Restore Default" button.

At the moment it depends on your mods rather than this content.

Hmm need to check this one out.

I'm a little confused, I see dwellings and structures in the Shadow Realm that are only supposed to be on the surface, no living archons and my game crashes every time I try to add in the underground.

The update that @Gladen mentioned has been pushed out.
