Great Zimbabwe map

Sun May 26, 2019 9:55 am

I recently played on this map against AI.
On this map, there is something called 'The Great Enclosure'.
http://aoe3wol.com/randommaps link says that it gives big economic bonus whomever captures it. But, how does one capture it? Just having a unit near to it? Or just killing those random animals which lurk and attack in/around that enclosure?

Also, I want to ask about the place which is marked with a white shell kind of symbol on this map among others which have 'African Commodity' people. I also get a kill pointer on those people, but one can't kill them. Is there any role of such a place? Is it of any use?

That thing will give you a coin trickle when you capture it. The coin trickle is rather large.
The African commodities have been disabled. Before, they just gave some techs, but those weren't fully coded/balanced, so the team decided to disable them for now. In short: wait till a next patch that will make them useful.

So, how does one capture the 'The Great Enclosure'? Is it disabled as of now?

Sometimes you should try things out before making comments, it is annoying to answer basic stuff. The only way to capture things outside of scenarios is by standing near it. Like sheep.

Here is a link to a 10sec video where I am standing on the The Great Enclosure with the german explorer and 1 Ulhan and I am not getting any kind of coin trickle just by standing. Any kind of caveat to this?

I also ran the Wars of Liberty Updater and it showed my current version as 1.0.11b which I believe is the latest one.
