Has anyone pushed on investigating results of exploring those?
I've been trying for a while now to reload a game to try and get a second weapon upgrade on my first basic unit but without success
Here is what I get the most: - Free tech (only the ones requiring less research) - Map reveal - 1-2 barbarian encampment locations - 55-85 gold Here is what rarely happens: - 20-30 culture Here is what doesn't seem to happen anymore (note I got those once already prior to this 3rd ruin): - Free citizen - Unit upgrade
*Playing on King difficulty so "Settlers" & "Workers" AFAIK don't spam in this difficulty (although I don't even know if you can get those out of ruins in easier difficulties)
Also I know I once before obtained twice a unit upgrade on the same guy making this happen: Warrior(6) -> Pikeman(7) -> Spearman(10) But I'm not sure if the game allowed this because my Pikeman leveled in between or because of any other factor was taken in consideration to allow this subsequent "Advance Weaponry" finding.
After having a quick look into the XML files, this is all that is possible:
Extra 1 population in a city Culture points depending on difficulty Revealing nearby barbarian camps Revealing nearby parts of the map Revealing the location of a few resource tiles Random amount of gold Free technology upgrade Upgrade your unit, warrior -> spearman, scout -> archer Spawn barbarians Free scout Free settler Free worker Experience for the unit who landed on it Heal a damaged unit who landed on it.
Your opinion on the subject matter has been noted, and has been summarily ignored and dismissed. Have a nice day. - RaptorLC Bad Company 2 Name - warantisniper
"I got one of my scouts to upgrade to an archer thanks to a ruin and that archer kept the scout ability to ignore move costs."
This is a bug that can be annoying too, though. Artillery have to set up to fire. Missile Artillery don't, but if you upgrade an Artillery to a Missile Artillery, you end up with a MA that still has to set up to fire (not sure if this is always the case or if it is just a bug that happens at random).
