Yes it is a good article, it helped me to get the invasions to work and siege equipment to attack like they should, lots of people could not get the siege towers to work, this tells you how to get them to work and more!

 

"Adnan" is a good example of the siege towers working, they come to the walls and the enemy troops climb onto your walls and you are in for a fight!

 

"Adnan" is posted in the war scenario section of Stronghold Heaven.

I did assume that, but I wasn't quite sure what you were thinking under "Hades terrain", but than I got it.

 

You can make it by placing ocean, and than over that ocean you need to put grass. Also, I believe that Hades terrain and beach are same level in fact - at least it has always seemed to me like that.

 

Also, I should tell that I found what Hades terrain is by looking at War of the deserts map. Surajsubba also

gave there his answer of how to create the terrain.

The Hades terrain is a feature, map-designing technique sorta where u can place farms on what it appears to be dry & barren land.

 

Here's how u do it:

1) Place a small/large patch of ocean

2) then place thick scrub or oasis grass over it.

 

Try it out, farms can be placed over it. On the minimap, it'll appear to as spots.

Sorry to hear you didn't get an answer from that, I was unsure how much it would help - but it looks like @EaglePrince managed to get something :)

I'm sure if you attach your file to the thread someone would take a look for you, we could see if we can see anything blatantly incorrect with it - two pairs of eyes are better than one, after all :)

Well, since somehow i can't take an ingame screenshot, i will just provide you the minimap and its links

 

A lot of people says there are a lot of map that uses a hades level terrain. But these two are the one that i think best

 

The first one is "Lasting Impression" by Yasko. It looks like a barren land but actually you can build a farm on the footprint. The footprint is the one that uses haddes level terrain.

 

Here is the minimap

And the link to the filehttp://stronghold.heavengames.com/downloads/showfile.php?fileid=3360&ci=0041e57c92a2a2e2cf9a432b77d8727bYToxOntpOjA7YToyOntpOjA7czoxNDoiU2VhcmNoIFJlc3VsdHMiO2k6MTtzOjQ4OiJsaXN0ZXIucGhwP3N0YXJ0PTAmYW1wO3NlYXJjaD1sYXN0aW5nIGltcHJlc3Npb24iO319

 

The seccond one is "War of the desert" by XFlameX. It looks like it is a barren land from minimap. But, you can actually build a farm on the edge of the map. The Oasis on the edge of the map were camouflaged using hades level terrain

 

Here is the minimap

You can make the in-game screenshot by pressing PRINT SCREEN (while in the game), and than you minimize the game and open Paint, and press CTRL+P to paste the image. Then you save the image. Those who have Steam version could press F12 to make a screenshot.

 

Nevertheless, we do know what Hades terrain, but we wanted to see your map, so we could see something about your problem.

Well EaglePrince, actually i alread tried that. But i don't know if i do it wrong but i can't managed to do that. I believe i already tried just like the instruction said sad
