Weekend Magic Jump - MM:H7 News Summary  posted Sun, Jan 25 2015, 14:15 by Pol 

At last Ubi's Master Cabir succeeded and after lot of hard effort created Acadamy section. There you can see short units description, Kaspar's commentary and pre-planned abilities. That all for likely final Cabir - Gargoyle - Golem - Djinn - Rakshasa - Apprentice - Arcane Eagle & Colossus line. Don't forget everything is in beta stage and nothing is final. Numbers are still a mystery.

Academy is now having nice touching theme - The Wizards Waltz, therefore we may summon Sound Council to place your opinion. You can compare with previous themes, For Green Falls and The Elven Coronation.

Concept of Heroes VI. Necropolis is touting a grand return. Everything is perfect here, we heard from Ubi, and the faction style suits new game. With Bone Dragon as top tier unit, Ebony Spider in the middle and apocalyptical Grim Reaper as second top tier unit. Necro line seems to be: Skeleton/Skeleton Hoplite - Ghost/Banshee - Ebon Spider/Death Spider - Lamasu/Plague Lamasu - Lich/Arch Lich - Vampire/Vampire Knights - Bone Dragon/Spectral Dragon - Grim Rider/Grim Reaper. No abilities are known, expect innovations, they were announced. Hear that traditional H3 Necromancy skill should be back on track. Our favourite Sveltana Anastasya could perhaps shed more true light there, in the future campaign. But for now my bets stay with Kaspar.

H7 Necropolis Lineup  posted Fri, Jan 23 2015, 12:00 by Kalah 
The first part of the Necropolis lineup has been revealed.

The developers have chosen a traditional path, going with skeletons and ghosts, but also spiders.

One can only speculate as to whether this means more traditional creatures will appear; the lich, the vampire and the bone dragon come to mind. Let's wait and see.

Blog Q&A 2 released  posted Sat, Jan 17 2015, 14:01 by Kalah 
While the first Q&A was so uninteresting that we ignored it almost completely, the second instalment is a bit more up-to-date:
  • Modifying hero and creature size might be possible.
  • Funny creature animations are go, as are "cool cams".
  • Weather effects yes, day/night no, but the latter can be messed around with in the map editor.
  • Not as much "colour coding" of the factions in H7. Yaay. Less purple, green, purple ...
  • Cinematics yes, gamepad support no.

H7: Magic Guilds  posted Thu, Jan 08 2015, 07:13 by Kalah 
A post on the official blog tells us more about the "Magic Guilds" (sic.) and for older players, the info should be quite familiar. As in previous instalments of the series, you will be able to build it into (4) levels, each level teaching you more spells:

"Each level of the magic guild grants four spells, plus another per level if an Arcane Library has been built. Which means a total of 16 spells for a fully upgraded magic guild in any town, and 20 for an Academy town."

Simply visiting a town will automatically teach the hero more spells. Logically, you cannot get all types of magic from any given town; some towns are incompatible with certain magic and refuses to teach them.

    Adblock?  posted Fri, Dec 05 2014, 06:42 by Kalah 
    Hi!

    Are you using Adblock to prevent ads from being displayed while you graze the Internet? I know I am. Ads are just so annoying, especially when they're big and obtrusive. I disable it for Celestial Heavens, though. You know why? Because the ads are paying for the server we're using. Without money, the site won't survive.

    Forum Error  posted Thu, Nov 27 2014, 11:02 by Kalah 
    We are currently having some issues with our forum; it seems that users using Internet Explorer are getting an error message going something like this:

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function: str_split() in /home/celestia/public_html/forums/index.php(1) : regexp code(1) : eval()'d code(1) : regexp code on line 1

    We have no solution as yet, but we're looking into it. For now, at least Firefox works normally.

    Update: It seems to be working again now.

    Black Friday 2014  posted Thu, Nov 27 2014, 10:27 by Kalah 
    Hey, guess what day it is tomorrow! That's right, it's that annual bonanza when shops has their biggest earner, a day that in itself has turned into a special sales day.

    Amazon are holding sales on everything from computers and computer games to jewellery, so you should stop by there to do some online shopping, in case you need some Christmas presents, or just stumble upon a good deal on something you want. In addition to current you can also view upcoming deals, which is a good thing in case you're looking for a game or something; it means you can check now and not bother re-checking for deals constantly.
    There are also sales on Gamestop, Green Man Gaming and I'm sure lots of other places. Check out the madness!

    GOG 2014 Fall Sale  posted Sat, Nov 15 2014, 15:31 by Kalah 
    Our good friends over at Good Old Games are having a fall sale, with lots of discounts and good offers on their DRM-free stock of downloadable games.

    In case you don't know what GOG is (if you've been living in a cave or whatever), it's an online store where you can download games; they have removed any and all forms of DRM/copy protection and made the old games possible to play on modern computers, via in-built emulators. It's completely legal, so don't worry about that either. Anyway, they have lots of old games, as well as quite a few not-so-old ones. So what's this fall sale about, then? Well, let's take a quick look at what's on offer:

    The HoMM series bundle (HoMM 1-5) is at -75% for 17 more hours, that's 5 games for $14.95.
    Deponia 1-3 is on a similar -75% spot sale, at $8.97. Move fast and you can get 'em.

    In addition to 1-day offers like these, there are "flash sales" lasting only 40 minutes. Check in regularly if you want to keep an eye on interesting deals.

    I'm also seeing lots of goodies at -50%: Baldur's Gate, Mount & Blade, Neverwinter nights, Icewind dale, The longest journey, Star Wars, Jade empire, Dungeons & Dragons ... so much good stuff!

    H7 : Sylvan Townscreen Vote 2  posted Wed, Nov 12 2014, 16:51 by Aemaeth 
    Hello Heroes,

    ONE DAY LEFT before the end of Sylvan Townscreen's vote 2. Might & Magic's team and given the chance to choose between two different ambiance for the townscreen.
    Players can choose between The Harmony of the Moonlight or The Dance of a New Dawn, two very different moments of an Ashan's day.
    Be quick, you have only 1 day to influence the final vote.

    Dear Shadow Council members,

    The first part of the Sylvan Townscreen vote has ended and you have chosen The Tree Island setting for the Sylvan cities! Now we will be focusing on the lighting and the ambiance of this Townscreen.

    /!\ Townscreens are a really important feature so please keep in mind that this vote will help us to define general direction of them but we will have to comply with all gameplay elements so final results might differ from the following concepts that aren't related to Heroes 7 in any ways.

    Dungeon Line-up Vote  posted Sat, Nov 01 2014, 08:33 by Kalah 
    The official blog has announced the choices for the Dungeon lineup, after the faction won over Inferno in the faction vote earlier this week. The vote will happen in two stages - first a week's vote to eliminate the least popular choice, then another vote to decide which of the two most popular line-ups end up in the final game. No matter what you choose, the good news (or bad, depending on your personal preference) is that Minotaurs, Black Dragons and Hydras will all be in the game.

    The Dungeon line-up vote can be found here. Go to the blog for more information and to participate in the voting process.

    The choices are:
    "The Blade from the Shadows"
    "Malassa's Thousand Faces"
    "The Shield of Darkness"
