Nice... I think I liked the other Nightmare better, but great to see some move. Hope that you'll find the strength and time to finish this project.

Hmm, this is looking really good.

@Muszka
I wouldn't be afraid that they will not finish it. I feel a strong will here.

BTW any chance of getting Phoenixmod in english? I remember that it was wanted. ;)

Yes. I've started working on a new version (3.5) and I'll translate it into English. But without help only 5-10% of all innovasions are easy to find so I'll try to make very short variant of manual with all main features.

I wouldn't be afraid that they will not finish it. I feel a strong will here.

And good team Image

Holy...How did you make the creatures look like 2.5d?? Did you actually use a 3d modeler?

p.s.:oh hai. I'm new here. :D

Yes, sure, we've got a couple of skilled 3d modellers on our team list; the models are textured, animated and further rendered as sprite animations

I gots a question. How is it musicwise. You got 3 new towns planned, does they come with their own soundtrack as well, and maybe more music added?

The bridge is working how is?

I see many of your units are smaller, are you planning to accustom to it game standart units? (Let say stone golems will be about two inch smaller than diamond golems...)

The bridge is passable for heroes, no movement penalty is applied (the bridge "terrain" acts just as regular dirt). Ships can pass directly through the bridge (as if they went underneath it), just a conditionality quite characteristic of the whole HoM&M franchise (otherwise you'd get dragons ten times larger than a pikeman). As for the creature size, all the new units are already scaled up to the regular standard. The only short creature seen in the screenshots is Leprechaun - but they ought to be this way, just like the H3 dwarves. By the way I don't see how you came up with this idea that our creatures appear smaller - nobody else voiced an opinion like that before.

Ok then, great :D
But I thought that it is impossible to add more towns as wog team is trying to break the limit of 255 creatures
