0001266: Battle-wide bonuses of upgrades do not stack with downgrades.
Check screenshot. My army consists from 4 stacks:
2 stacks of bone dragons
2 stacks of ghost dragons

H3 behaviour here is -1 morale no matter how many stacks hero army has (usually compensated by same alignment bonus).
This means that:
[FIXED] 1) No bonuses stacking from _same_ creatures (for some reason works correctly for Ghost D. but not for Bone D.)
2) Battle-wide bonuses of upgrades do not stack with downgrades. Same goes to Angel + Archangel and Devils + Archdevils bonuses.
No tags attached.

As for the Bone Dragon: isn't this yet another duplicated bonus? (both in ZCRTRAIT and in .JSON)


Tough one.
The -1 morale modifier nneds to be in a single bonus system node that is parent both to Bone Dragons and Ghost Dragons.

I'm not sure how this should be done. I think about some custom step in creature handler after loading creatures that goes over sets of creatures that are in upgrade/downgrade transitive relation and:
* checks if all creatures in the group share the same bonus(es). For efficiency this can be limited to bonuses with propagators / ONLY_ENEMY_ARMY range (that range should be propgator actually…)
* if they do, create a new bonus node, put shared bonuses in there. Attach all creatures to that node.

(Plus tweaking the ONLY_ENEMY_ARMY workaround but that won't be hard.)

Bone dragons should be OK now. Editing report a bit to match current situation.
2017-08-06 11:38   
Can I add some information about current behaviour?
Right now the bonuses from 2 different grades of units (Angels/Archangels, Devils/Archdevils, Bone/Ghost Dragons) do stack, so +2 to Morale (or -2 to Luck/Morale respectively) is applied. That's not correct.

However, this is different for Pegasi/Magi (neither bonuses/debuffs from 2 different grades nor different unit stacks work), so their interactions (spell cost decrease/increase) are correct.
2017-08-09 22:51   
@Anubis, bonus calculation for Pegasi/Magi is hardcoded as special case (for other reason) that`s why they are not affected by this bug.

I think 2841 also has a connection...
2018-03-19 13:07   
2841 is completely different issue, BLOCK_MORALE bonus just block any moral calculation

fixed with bonus stacking.
