I'm looking to the vanilla codes of mongols invasions, the goal is to make several invasions during Third Age : Balchoths, Wainriders, invasion of Minas Ithil, Arrival of the Witch-King in Angmar, ...


For now, i'm making some test with the Wainriders!

Sounds great, and fits perfectly with Middle-Earth themes!

For the current War of the Ring scenario, one way to get the proper battle for Gondor/Rohan going is also via invasions.

Saruman's invasion of Rohan should definitely be scripted at least (otherwise he is too weak with just one province).

I think the current casus belli mechanics will make Mordor attack pretty soon after game-start anyways, and Umbar should also join in once they see in opportunity after Gondor is weakened by the battles with the orcs if I manage to give them those claims via events.

Yep, I was thinking about Isengard too! 
For now it seems to works, but i would like to spawn a "specific" character instead of a random one at the head of the invasions, i ask for helps in the Paradox Forum Wink

Well the random character you can still customize quite a bit, even giving a name, dynasty, stats, etc in the invasion event script.

I had huge problems trying to get an already-created character (maglor) move to the court of the player, at least, but hopefully it's easier making them command an invasion!

Yes, I already made my random character, but i want to use specific ones for "history" reasons as  Castamir the Usurper, Saruman, the Witch-King, or the characters i created for balchoths and wainriders.  Smile

If you find the proper command that lets you scope to a specific character ID and it works, post it here and let me know Smile It might be what I need to get my Maglor event working.

maybe could you post your code in the thread about Maglor too, and we'll look at it Wink

Once we have a Maglor created, I'll go back and take a look at the event again and post here if I'm still stuck Smile

On a related note re: invasions, I'm doing the event for Umbar/Gondor claims at the moment.

Should we also give Saruman a chance for a claim on d_dunland and d_Isenmarch via event? And later, a claim on K_Rohan when his prestige is high enough? (1000?)

Any other claims that we should consider? Perhaps a dwarf claim on Moria if one is a ruler of the line of Durin... ? If we do this, however, I'll have to change the province file for Moria to give them extra fortresses and troops so that it becomes quite difficult to conquer.

I agree for a claim via event for Rohan and Isenmarch. I would not give a claim on Dunland
I agree for the dwarvish claim too. Maybe we can create two separate claims "Reconquest of Moria" and "Reconquest of Erebor" if they're occupied by a non-dwarvish race.

True, there is not really a reason for giving a claim on Dunland... if Saruman wants it, he can send his Uruks  Okay

On the other hand, we should then maybe give the ruler of Dunland a chance to claim Westmarch and Westfolde duchies if prestige is high enough? 500?

And yes, I think I can make that work for the dwarves!

I totally agree  Okay
PS: The Saruman's claim/event on Rohan should fire only if Saruman has the evil_side trait and has the k_isengard as primary title. Is it possible to code?

Oh yes, definitely possible  Okay   I'll leave out the evil side thing for now since it's not implemented and I need to test how it works in gameplay, but it'll take 5 seconds to put in once we have it operational.
