Yes, the vast majority they should work. However, sometimes the map maker chooses to set a flag called "spawn no objects", which prevents goodiehuts and world resources from spawning. This is done in Elementerra2. For other maps, the only way to find out is to test the map.
Quoting Heavenfall, reply 50If enemy sovereigns start riding around on mounts, its installed. If you find any goodiehut named weapon cache, armor cache or just "creature", it's installed. If you find quest locations called "Dungeon Tier X", it's installed.
uhm ok so for some reason i dont understand it seems not installed at all
any clue why that could be?
i reverted to original with verify installation, then i unzip after the war, started the game to install it, unzip artifact and apparently nothing uhmm
Install for Artifact: Extract all folders to documents\my games\elemental\mods\
Make sure "Use Mods" is turned ON in options
(sorry, forgot to add description to this mod about how it is installed. That's important, since it is different from ATW. Added to OP now. If you extracted Artifact into the installation folder, you may want to remove those files)
