#6309 closed enhancement (fixed)

Unpossible to make working elephants

Reported by: Sylvain LE GAL Owned by: marder
Priority: Nice to Have Milestone: Alpha 26
Component: Simulation Keywords: regression
Cc: Patch: Phab:D4249


hi all,

First thanks for this great game I'm playing since years.

I just updated the game. (Version Alpha XXV : Yauna / 28 August 2021, 25860 release).

All is globally OK. However, I just started a match with Mauryas civilization, and i can not order to my elephant to help to build buildings. Did you faced the same problem ?

kind regards.

The ability of the Mauryan working elephant to actually build things was removed with changeset [23579]. However, it could be added back since one of the core developers was also fond of it.
Related forum thread:

the mauryan worker elephant needs a mahout (some person sitting on it and controlling it). If this is done it also can get back its ability to help on building structures.

The mahout has been added with [25666], all that is left is someone to make a patch and give the working elephant back its ability to build structures. Are you interested?

Hi !

Well, first thanks for the complete explanation.

Are you interested?

Well, do you suggest I make a Merge Request ? If yes, I would like to specify that I am a computer developer, but not in game area. For the time being, my technical knowledge on 0ad is limited to "apt-get install".

I won't have time soon to work on learning this, but I'll keep it in mind !

Sorry about the noise, I thought it was a regression, but it's definitely a modification.
