    Post suggestions and bugs regarding Godfall battalion system here. You can ask how certain thing works and I can explain why I did it that way. The system has gone multiple phases, at certain points I couldn't decide if do this or that.

    They don't belong to the player, but I just changed color when creating them. After all, you see them as different color in minimap.

    Uhm, i realize this is irrevelant but still:
    At the singleplayer map where you have to arrive to defend the outpost against several orc tribes, one of the northern preplaced production structures in the human camp can occasionally unload the trained battalion into the mountain area at the moment of training completion, rendering them imprisoned within the mountain terrain, able to move around within but unable to move out. Inspecially useful for defending as enemy melee units will still try to reach the ranged battalion but cant get past the pathing blockers.
    Another case of this was northernmost orc tribe having an worker spawn into an mountain, rebuilding barracks on the not-buildable normally rock terrain, then spawning troops therein that cant get out to attack.(and i was wondering why they did not attack harshly as before)
    I assume this happent since you have used pathing blockers only at the edges of the terrain that is wanted to be inaccessible.

    You should comment in the resource thread then. However that campaign is so old, the system still has many bugs.
