Three small idiosyncrasies I noticed when using the map editor, I am not sure whether or not these are intended:


1 - Temple guards are spawned with 60 experience:



Note that changing their level seems to fix this.


2 - There are two sappers in the map editor:



3 - Gold is not deleted from the minimap if it is removed using the Earth tile rather than the 'remove gold' tile. Moving the screen away fixes this:

Hi Webbernever,


#1 - That does sound like a small bug.

#2 - As far as I know there are 2 (slightly) different variants of the Sapper, each with different behaviour (although I think one of them was only used for a HoG campaign level so possibly isn't meant to be available in the editor).

#3 - Pretty sure that happens because the "remove gold" tool doesn't force the minimap to update like the terrain tools do.


Either way it's probably worth sending this through for a review by the code team although I expect it will probably end up as low priority for now.


Thanks for the report.

Thanks for the quick reply. By the way, as a side note, I find it somewhat impossible to change the level/faction etc. of a minion placed inside an arena in the map editor. The cursor keeps selecting the arena instead.


Also: regarding #3, the 'remove gold' tool was not used. I attempted to place an Earth tile on top of the gold (apologies if I misunderstood you).

Nope you didn't misunderstand me, I just typed it out wrong haha


Either way it looks like the minimap isn't being updated correctly which probably is an oversight.

Completed - Next Patch

All fixed, thanks for reporting :)
