A few questions about using siege equipment.

Recommended Posts

I recently started playing Stronghold Crusader HD (sometimes Extreme) and i wanted to ask you fellas a few questions:


When i have 40 engineers selected and i want them to make 20 catapults, i need to mouse-click the catapult icon 20 times and then click a location 20 times?

Is there any faster way of doing this, like a hotkey/keybind or a shortcut for the ?build catapult? icon?


Is there a way to quickly resupply multiple catapults with rocks?

When i select my 5 catapults and click the ?stone to rock? resupply button nothing happens? even though i have over 300 stone on my stockpile.

But when i resupply one by one catapult (individually) it works normally.


I am having trouble making Ladderman and Siege Towers actually ?dock? with any enemy wall.

No matter what kind of a wall i try to click both the Ladderman and the Siege Towers display that red ?cross? icon, like i am doing something incorrectly.

Are there some types of walls that Ladderman and Siege Towers can not ?dock? with, or some rules that prevent them from working properly?


Thank you for reading and helping me out :)

Sadly, I'm no expert with this game, however...

From what I've played recently (only tested with stone walls) with a siege tower you select attack and place it up against the wall. As simple as that :)?well it should be. Perhaps certain walls are different :P

Well, on your first 2 questions, it is as you say. You have to do it one by one and there is - at least as far as I know - no shortcut.



To dock laddermen and siege towers to walls, you have to make sure that there is enough space in front of the wall; otherwise they won't be able to dock on. I usually take a few macemen forward together with my tower and when the tower gets near I let them run out and destroy any buildings near the wall. Apart from that I think small walls are not accessible by ladders and towers, but I am not sure about that fact.


Let me know if you still have trouble with ladders and towers and I will take a close look at it.

    • A few problems

      Hi guys! I'm new to the forum, and recently I've been having a few problems with Stronghold Legends. 1) Is there any way to import an old profile saved from my PC before I formatted everything? I've formatted my PC in which I was just a few missions away from the final achievement, and I'm unable to import it in the new game I just installed. I've saved a folder named Profiles, which contains a stats.dat file. No matter where I look, in my new Stronghold Legends folder there's no such thing as a

    • Questions About Military Procedures

      First off, I have no intention in joining the military, however I have a huge interest in the way they operate. As someone who writes a lot and plays a lot of military themed video games, it's useful to know what certain things mean and why they exist. I've devised a list of questions to ask, and I'm hoping eventually I'll have an answer to each one.   1. What does the term "Actual" signify? From my understanding, it refers to a squad or team leader, is this correct?   2. I can't think of the te

      I was pleasantly surprised today, when I saw that FireFly is picking up the idea of a Siege That contest and organizing their own version for it :)   Here is what Lady Magnanimus announced on their Crusader 2 website     As the battles happen on the weekends, it is unfortunately not possible for me to take part myself. But hopefully I will be able to drop in for a few minutes to look at what they are broadcasting on their Twitch Chanel. And I sure hope it will be as succesful and fun as the co
