Building and troops availability with through ranks

Recommended Posts

Hi. I wrote about this before, but now I didn't manage to find that exact tread... I was thinking about making a table I could also print, and that would help me in playing Stronghold 2 - especially in multiplayer. The thing is that there are many cheap, yet useful, buildings which you can build since some rank, but at the moment you may not notice that, and now you can have a reminder for that. At that moment Chris showed me this article he had already made.

 

I used this article now, and I have made it into a word document and pdf file. I hope this will be helpful to others. Another thing I also did with the table (I didn't just copy/paste it, though basically that is what I did), but I also marked those most important things for me by red color. For example, archers, spearmen, pikemen, crossbowen, swordsmen, jousting ground, traveling fair, musicians guild, church, candler workshops etc are among those I have marked with red color (candles can be produces before building a church according to the article). Building vegetable farm just after upgrading my rank is pretty cheap if I have where to put several those farms, while by forgetting to place those I would "lose" some honor. Same goes for jousting ground and traveling fair.

 

Besides this coloring, I also regrouped those a little, so now those buildings for dealing crime in the castle are all on one row, so when one sees "courthouse" knows the rest, and they can move on to see what's next.

 

PS. I am not submitting this into Downloads Central, as there is already an article about this, and this indeed belong to articles not Downloads Central I believe. If Chris wants to, he could add a link to these documents into the article.

 

EDIT: I have submitted the attachment, but it appears not to be visible, or something like that. When I click to edit the post, I can see it submitted twice which I mistakenly did.

 

For now you can download the files from here.

SECOND EDIT: I have also created another version of the same file.

https://www.dropbox.com/s/1bv1zyzuykvjvyv/Stronghold%202%20ranks%20compact.docx?dl=0

This one is without tables. Thanks to this you are able to transfer the file to your phone, and view everything way more easily in Word. :)

Looks like the same bug is present here as in the other forums. You can only view attachments when logged in out - this has been fixed on the next version of the problem.

 

Thanks for the useful reference, though!

    • Missing Character/Building Animation and Floating Characters Glitch

      Hello everyone, I'm building a massive and detailed map and everything was going fine. Then on my last map test I noticed that characters were floating, and in-building animations were also missing. The carters post horse and wagon move as normal but everything else is affected. I'm not sure exactly when it happened. I have a rough idea because I added a decent amount of smoke, steam and bubbling effects in a swamp section. Afterwards I added a lot of grass and bog plants from the 3rd sc

      I would like to know if anybody has any idea if it's possible to build a wall in such a way that tunnelers can attempt to undermine it, but they can never actually reach it. ?For some reason in the past, I remember encountering certain arrangements of walls where tunnelers simply couldn't reach them, but you could still place the tunnel entrance and they would dig toward the wall, my memory could be faulty though. ?I've tried to reproduce something like that recently, but I haven't had any succe

      Hey everyone, I have a bit of a problem here.

Other times, they will move of

      Hi, I have found Stronghold 2 AI Editor at Heaven Games, and I have downloaded, and I tried using it. http://stronghold2.heavengames.com/downloads/showfile.php?fileid=490   There are two Williams castles that needed to be fixed, so I did that - he had problems because of the moat (that was the issue on both castles), so I removed the moat, and he had two towers with doors to outside instead of to inside (that is on one castle), so I deleted those two towers and I put those with correct orientat

I should note, this is all discovered by using Stronghold 2 - v1.4.1 (The most recent patch).     The "readme" file: The first easy-to-find file I found, was the "readme" file located in the default SH2 directory (C:\Program Files (x86)\Firefly Studios\Stronghold 2).
