Shadow Realm Expansion - RMG Integration - BETA

The Shadow Realm Community Expansion is currently in open beta! Most of the planned content is included, but all is not yet finalized. There may also be some game breaking bugs. The campaign is still a work in progress. Scenario 3 is still under development.

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

There is a list of known issues on the official forums 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 welcome!

This mod allows full integration of the Shadow Realm Expansion content (including the new Shadow Realm layer) into the Random Map Generator.

Unfortunately, the new layer and climates do not work with the advanced setting sliders during RMG setup.

Required Mods:
- Decodence Map Editor Content
- Decodence RMG
- Shadow Realm Content

I've tried adjusting the settings multiple times, and all I can conclude is that there should be a pass where it culls a load of portals, but for some reason it doesn't work.
So unfortunately, no.

anyway we can control the amount of portals to the shadow realm spawn i feel like the map is completely saturated from tiny to gigantic, there's just way too many portals.

@Theta: Have you tried? The balance mod for instance states that it requires DLC on its page but can actually be run without them.

Is there a way to have this Run WITHOUT the use of DLC?

Thanks Loboramdk for the report, we know this one and it has annoyed us for a very long time, but we haven't found how to solve it yet. Usually it crashes the game, though not always. It's due to Shadow Gates spawning at places they shouldn't. It happens quite rarely so on Small maps, it should not occur. It won't cause issues after map creation (if it doesn't crash during map creation).

First up let me congratulate you on this most incredible addition to the AoW3 mod world, it is truly an awesome mod.

Then unfortunately I have to say that while running in debug mode, I keep getting this error and I am not sure whether it will create trouble down the road, so hopefully it is something you already know about:

Thanks, Hiliadan for all the info. I haven't had much time recently to invest in AOW3, but I would certainly love to test play if I think I can manage to find time and put some thought into it...

I'll check out the link below and get in touch with you re: campaign files if i can. Thanks again

The Shadow Realm custom campaign does not require this mod (the RMG Integration mod) and can be played with only Decodence Map Content and the main Shadow Realm mod. If you want the Shadow layer in RMG maps, you need 4 mods. The FAQ should contain answers to most of your questions and has a step by step guide to activate the layer, etc. If you still have questions, happy to help here (and potentially update the FAQ).
Also, if you'd like to test the campaign, please post here and I can share the latest dev files. It's quite advanced now so interesting to play.

Good question, I wonder that also. Is there an accurate step-by-step procedure list posted that spells out all add-ons needed as well as how to activate these mods in Random Map Generator maps and in the (upcoming) Shadow Realm campaign? Thx

@Queen of Thrones: that's the first question in the FAQ here: You need to click on "Restore Default" on the first screen of settings for RMG maps
