Summary0000119: Random Artifact and Reward Artifact Placement Rules
DescriptionWhen filling random artifact slots in a certain game, or deciding on what random artifacts can be given out by defeating a certain map site (or are given in Treasure Chests, Shipwreck Survivors or other pickups like Flotsams, first visit of Wagons etc.):

1. All of one class of random artifact must be placed before one artifact gets repeated in a random slot;
2. if for some reason there are even more, all of them must appear twice before a third placing of one particular artifact in a random artifact slot or as reward is done by the game;
3. non-random artifacts placed on the map by the map-maker don't count when deciding what artifact to put in random artifact slots. The game rations the number of times a particular artifact (like a "Rib Cage" or a "Sandals of the Saint") appears in a random artifact slot (the random artifact slots of a particular power of artifact are set and placed by the map-maker in the editor);
4. (i) artifacts banned in the SoD/WoG editor never appear in a random artifact or as a random artifact reward slot for map sites that give out random artifacts (although even if combination artifacts are banned, they may still be assembled if all the pieces of that combo are available from random artifacts and/or specifically placed by the map-maker);
   (ii) also banned are artifacts that are the requirements for any Seer Hut, Quest Guard or Special Victory Condition.
(All the artifacts in rule 4 are considered banned from any random artifact slot, or any map site or pickup that can possibly give random artifact/s.)

So in H3 when a particular game is starting up the number of duplicate random artifacts in random artifact slots is always minimised by the above rules, and any game-breaking artifacts are excluded.

Phew! =) If there are any conditions I've missed, please add notes to this issue - but I'm pretty sure these are all the ones that currently apply in standard H3 Complete/SoD. :)

1. and 2. can be easily handled, 3. and 4. are not yet implemented.

Implemented for all adventure objects, it's more complicated for free random artifacts.

Congratulations on your progress, it is an important step. =) Do you or the VCMI Team have some idea when the next release or development version is coming, or not sure yet (due to Tow and Tow dragon being back at their university studies and having less free time)?
