They need a troop in the nearby to provide LOS for you, since their LOS has been removed in NE (for some reason)

I don't know what LOS is, but I have just played the Austrians and I couldn't find the place to upgrade the walls...

Help?

LOS means Line of Sight, aka the distance the unit can reveal the Fog of war aka FOW.

So clicking on a wall that was close to a unit/building of yours did not help?

IS the upgrade only visible if the wall is in a units line of sight? Or is it even so that the wall isn't even selectable? I've never thought of that.

It was removed because people online used to build single wall segments as a form of ultra-cheap outposts. That was considered a type of abuse that had to be nerfed.

Similarly earlier versions of NE had a wall build limit. I don't recall ever running in to that in 2.1 though.

I might be mistaken in this, but I have a feeling the Austrians weren't supposed to be able to upgrade their walls beyond wood, for some reason. Confused

If I remember well, Austria can't upgrade their walls, must be a bug I suppose...

Yes, especially since Austria is so focused on defence.

It may be an attempt to otherwise balance their strong defences.

Slightly, yes.

Walls though, both palisades and stone walls are so rubbish that they are more of of a stalling device to stop stray soldiers and scouts than an invading army.

With some of the civs, like Austria and Poland, you have to send the card that fortifies walls and structures automatically (I forget what it's called). For whatever reason, you can't upgrade walls on your own.
