Heroes of Might and Magic V  → Mods

by Staff


Below is a list of small game modifications for Heroes of Might and Magic V. Created by fans, they are meant to provide a slightly different experience in your game. Be aware that they could possibly mess up your Heroes V installation, so handle them with care. Celestial Heavens cannot test all mods that are published here, but those you will find here come from a reliable source.

There's no denying that mods can make a game far more enjoyable to begin with, and can keep it fresh for a long time afterwards. With that in mind, I'm hoping we can use this page to build a nice little modding community for HoMM V here, and help add to this great game. Look for new and updated mods as new patches come out, and hopefully we can put together a bit of a guide as to how to make your own soon. -Sir_Toejam

  • Some mods have been updated for the latest patches, see if there is a note to that effect under the listing for your favorite.

    I've added readmes and screenies to a lot of the mods, and packaged them inside of zip files for less confusion and easier organization.

date: 02.13.07 author: Alx

date: 11.08.06 author: okrane

date: 10.08.06 author: Sir_Toejam
name: Confusion spell fix
type: spell modifier
fixes the confusion spell to work correctly. It seems that the game engine was programmed with an inverse way of calculating percentages for this spell, as to how it affects a stack it is cast on. So, while it was supposed to affect 90% of the creature's ranged/retaliation in a stack at advanced level, in reality it was only affecting 10%.
this mod simply inverts the % affected for each level so it works like it says it should.
Works with 1.3.

date: 10.05.06 author: Sir_Toejam
name: Wasp Swarm Gets a Low Level Boost
type: spell modifier
Changes how the wasp swarm spell works when cast with a skill level of "none". instead of it doing 10+2(power) damage with no initiative change, it now does 15+2(power) damage with a 10% initiative reduction on the target stack for one turn.
Works with 1.3.

date: 10.05.06 author: Sir_Toejam
name: Uber Sprites
type: creature modifier

Works with 1.3.

date: 09.27.06 author: Sir_Toejam
name: Easy Town Portal
type: spell modifier
Lowers the requirements to gain the town portal spell (on maps where it is enabled) from it being a level 5 spell and your hero needing to be level 20, to it being a level 4 spell and your hero now only need be level 12.
Helps remove a bit of tedium from having to bounce back to town to train troops, learn spells, make mini-artifacts, or change your favored enemies.
Works with 1.3.

date: 09.25.06 author: Naskoni
name: Raise Dead/Resurrection mod

date: 09.20.06 author: Sir_Toejam

date: 10.02.06 author: Sir_Toejam
name: Fast Track to Ultimate Specializations

As always, use in the /Maps directory for version 1.5 or similar ones. For 1.3 and less (even 1.0), rename to .PAK and put into /data. For versions up to 2.1 HoT and ToF, rename to .h5u and put into /UserMODS

For those who want a naked version of Isabel, I've made a version with Isabel without clothes (nude), because I've found a version on the WEB that was ugly. I am now satisfied with the results, but the game engine is not as good to show skin color, because of polygonals (lack of detail in the body) and the fact isabel became 'so whitey' when you click her to see her status (seated in the horse). I tested in every given scenario and I used the best color possible in the adventure map and the scenes, where she appears most, and these areas fit well. The file is hosted in http://rapidshare.com/files/446087292/isabel.h5m (I dont know it its possible to up this file here in the forum). It was tested on version 1.5. For 1.5, you must put this file in the /Maps dir (create it if it does not exist). If your version is 1.3 of lesser, try changing the extesion to .pak and put in the /data folder (where the others .pak's are in). For versions 1.6 and up (like 2.1), like in HoF/ToE, create the dir UserMODS/ and rename the extension to 'h5u'. If something goes wrong in a given version, try the other ways for the other versions said above. Thats it.

If you don't wish to wait until the mods been updated on whatever place you got them from, you need to go into the .pak files (they're only renamed .zip files, so you should be able to open them with most programs made for that kind of things). Then you open all the files you've just extracted with notepad, and save them. This will change their "last updated" date. Then you can repack them into zip files that you rename to .pak. You need to be careful so that you get the correct file tree though, or it won't work.

oh, wait, i think i read that wrong; you want to edit the skills themselves?

I think many of these are hardcoded; well, at least to some extent.

However, you can change how morale/luck etc. actually work in combat by changing the values of the coefficients in the defaultstats.xdb file (in the GameMechanics\RPGStat directory).

so you could make it more likely high morale would give faster turns, or more likely bad luck would give half damage.

be carefull editing that file though, as there are a ton of things controlled by it.

you can also change the required prerequisites for any given perk, feat, or special, but you can only change a few aspects of these things AFAICT, but not the basic way they work (like luck giving 1 point per level).

to edit any other effect, you can edit the files in the RefTables directory (\GameMechanics\RefTables).

for example:

in the RPGStats.xdb file, you can edit how some abilities for the demonlord work (i stripped the codemarkers out so it would show up):

Item 0 /Item
Item 0 /Item
Item 0 /Item
Item 0 /Item
StartATB 0 /StartATB
InitiativeFactor 1 /InitiativeFactor
GatingMasteryPortionBonus 0.2 /GatingMasteryPortionBonus
QuickGatingStartATB 0.5 /QuickGatingStartATB
CriticalGatingConstantProb 0.1 /CriticalGatingConstantProb
CriticalGatingPerLuckPointProb 0.05 /CriticalGatingPerLuckPointProb
InfernalLoomPortionBonus 0.05 /InfernalLoomPortionBonus
GatekeeperHeroSpecPerLevelPortionBonus 0.01 /GatekeeperHeroSpecPerLevelPortionBonus
BaseDamage 50 /BaseDamage
DamagePerSpellPower 5 /DamagePerSpellPower
ManaCost 5 /ManaCost
ConsumeCorpseHPForOneMana 30 /ConsumeCorpseHPForOneMana

so you can see you can edit several ways that the specials, feats and perks work for inferno.

yeah, it's complicated.

that's why I'm trying to get a guide together.

I expected somebody over at elrath already would have done it, but no such luck.

the directories you want for editing hero skills are the specific town type directories under the MapObjects directory (still in the data.pak file). In each town directory (inferno, for example), you will find all the heros listed by name.

all the hero skills are found inside those files.

if you want to edit the text for each hero, those files are in:


and again, there will be a subdirectory for each town type.

if you want a model to work from, download the mod i made to Ossir to see how to edit a specific hero.

ahh. thanks. that's clear to me now. Yeah, that's a good idea.

I'll look into it later this week, after I finish testing some of the new maps and figure out a couple of other modding things that are a bit ahead on my list, if someone doesn't beat me to it.

just to be clear, you did see the mod that at least gives you the range of creatures in a stack, right (the Sev mod)?

...but you want a mod that gives essentially the "scouting" ability to everybody (so you see the numbers just like you had scouting), is this correct?

A mod to show the exact number of creatures in a stack would be a welcomed enhacement. I am talking about the stacks currently displayed as 1k, 2k - in a battle it is extremly important to know if there are 2009 or 2999 creatures. Any hints on how to change one of the current mods to get this effect? Thx.

Sir_Toejam at 2006-09-19 01:31 wrote:
Well, i got tired of not seeing any new mods here, so I made one myself.

this mod drastically reduces the requirements for ultimate specialization for each faction.

the idea was to make it so players with focused effort could get ultimate specials somewhere around level 16-20.

this makes ulitmates more intersting to go for on small maps or when playing multiplayer.

I've tested it randomly with 3 different heroes from each faction, and it seems pretty consistent (occassionally, the player will not get access to a required skill tree until late, but almost guaranteed you will get the skill before level 25 regardless). most of the time, with focus you will get the special before level 20, and rarely as early as 16 (provided you hero already has one of the required skill trees and a perk).

It's a beta, of course, so i will wait for some feedback before putting it up in the table. ITMT, you can grab it here:


and there is a thread over in the modcrafting guild to discuss it.



it was also about time that Ossir was modified so he could get nature's luck, so i did that too:

pm me the link to the mods you like, and I'll be happy to add them if it's alright with the authors. i can't really do that without at least some indication the author doesn't mind having the mod posted here.

That applies for everybody who wants their favorite mod posted here. I'm happy to do so, so long as someone PM's me the link, and has some indication that the original author wouldn't mind having it posted here.


as to some mods working and some not...

the only mods that will "break" are ones where the primary data files in the mod were updated in the patch.

for the sev mod, for example, the text data files were updated in the latest patch, and so it no longer worked until I updated the datestamp on the text files inside of the mod.

the dark knight mod, for example, still works fine and needs no adjustment as no files it uses were updated in the patch (which reminds me...)

what does anybody think about adding ratings to the mods?

votable, or just mine :) ?

itmt, I've tried most of these, and here is my commentary:

updated inventory screen:

very nice. much improved over the standard. cosmetic only. no issues. highly recommended.

the combat screen interface changes:

they're all very well done; my personal preference is for version 1.4 by Gryphon. these are all cosmetic, AND functional improvements. probably the one mod i couldn't live without at this point! Highly recommended.

Arstahd's black knight mod:

again, a fantastic mod. changes are both cosmetic and functional. balances out the upper levels of the necros better. Highly recommended.

tooltip sound mod. truthfully, the sound didn't bother me before, but this mod definetly removes it. It works.

gargoyles mod:

another cosmetic mod only; but i really like the changes to the gargoyle. recommended.

sev mod (stack sizes):

for those who hate to look up what those funny stack names represent, this saves time and irritation without giving away anything. highly recommended.

artifacts mod:

no longer needed as of patch 1.2. If you are playing with previous patch versions, this would be recommended.

cleric mod:

like the gargoyle mod, this one's all cosmetic; and also like the gargoyle mod, I personally consider it a big improvement over the stock cleric model. recommended.

I also highly recommend the mod manager proggy - works great and really helps keep things organized. Now if only the modders would add the appropriate description texts so that they would show up in the description window....

haven't tried the rest yet.

Has anyone messed around with the spells yet and know which files to edit?

I notice at least one: confusion, has a serious bug in it - the percentages to disable are exactly the opposite of what is stated.

example: with advanced dark magic, it should disable 90% of ranged and retaliations, but it actually only disables 10%.

sounds like they simply mixed up the enabled/disabled part, but who knows.

gotta fix that spell; one of my favorites from the old homm series.

I would also change the percentages (otherwise is tremendously overpowered because of no retalliation).

I would suggest something like 30% for basic, 60% for advanced, and 90% for expert.

After meny games played by me , I think that Death Knights are just fine . There is nothing wrong with them. It is much more amusing to play against them :) . So Ubi must reconcider to put the "thing" where it belongs since the Necropolis Exists! It is good to make unit like "the Death itself" but the Wriath just screws hard ! At least Harm touch should be a passive skill like Vorpal sword ! U must agree with me ! The Wriath was the worse unit ever !

I have tried the new Necropolis Mod . And it is quite confusing ! Why the death knight ( dread knight ? ) is like a wriath but with knight's skin? and what is the idea of the Doom Reaper Unit ? Anyway neutral units are just on the book ! Almost never appear on the game ! And finally - Why evryone are looking at the Tier 6 necropolis when there is ABSOLUTLEY USELESSS Tier 7 necropolis ( i think why Ubi spend such a good skin for such a usless unit ) Instead Of Making "Neutral Bull****s" wich do not value for the game - Do something about This Stupid Bag of bones that counts to be a Level 7 unit ! i am A necrofan Since a Heroes 2 and i was never face such atrosity ! Till now almost all of my Necro games was even without build that stupid building! Do something about that Arstahd or just put the good old Deathknight and remove Spectaral ****s Completely !

Hi again. Fine, that you managed to activate the mod at all. I think, everything is better than the wrights units, cause they aren't really as good as for example the pitlords...
But I have a question this time: I installed the CPUantiCheat mod with version 1.0 but I had no time to try out, if the game is REALLY easier with this mod... Then I installed version 1.1 and played a game with easy difficult setting. But it was SO hard, the enemy rushed me with 5 archangels, and I just had 3 Pitlords... No Chance!! Whats wrong with the game?? Is it the new patch, that doesn't work with the anticheat mod? or what could be wrong? maybe my skillz are too bad...

True, the mod does not include changing the name in the building. You can change that yourself though, go to the forum thread for that. It's in there somewhere, if you are not accustomed to modding.
But he's right, build it first. AND REMEMBER!! You must start a new game for the mod to work. It won't work on a saved game!
Just build and end your turn... shouldn't take too long. Just go against 1 opponent. He won't reach that quickly anyway

Hi, I also first had problems with the BK mod. I think it was because I copied the hole folder (?? sry, bad english)... But now, I copied the three folders in the "blackKnightmod" one into the data folder. When I start the game, there is still the text like "...here you can recruit wraights..." but when I build the building, I can actually recruit Black Knights and it works. so first try this possibility, maybe there is only the text wrong ;-)

-Shadow32- at 2006-06-08 17:18 wrote:
I'll try again.. slow now. Otherwise try reading some other solutions on the forum there is a BK mod thread. Though most didn't work for me. First you need to have Winrar installed. Then ..

Go the the heroes V\data folder. There are a few PAK files there. First unzip the mod and within the BK mod folder, you'll find three other folders. Copy Paste those to the data folder.

Now open textures\interface\combatarena\faces\neutral folder. There should be 8 files over there. Leave this window open.

Now open up the data.pak file which is also in the heroes V\data folder (where you pasted the three mod folders to).
Within the data.pak file, follow the same path: textures\interface\combatarena\faces\neutral.
You'll enter a folder where you see a lot of files, including the elemental unit files (just so you know you are at the right place). You will see that the black knight files are missing.
Now open the other window, where the 8 black knights files are (which is one of the mod folders). Select all 8 files and drag them to the data.pak window you have opened. Your computer will have a hard time with it, but after a minute or so it will have added the missing Black Knight files to the folder and the mod should work.
Hope it helps.

On another note... I agree that Deadly Strike is overpowered.
Can you make it so that the 25% chance is converted to something like double damage (heroes 3 FTW)? or perhaps 150% damage.
Taking it away entirely is not good IMO, and will hurt them too much

That would own... I say 25% for double damage. Just like H3

Select all the files in the following folder of the unzipped mod:

And put them in the data.pak, which is also in the the data folder.
Just follow the same path and you'll see those files from the mod folder missing in the folder inside data.pak.. just select and drag them in (you'll need winrar or something similar).
Note this took a long time to complete for me, so let your computer mess around a bit.

Finally BKs are mine!

It's not like you can avoid having the Irresistable Magic skill.

Are their death knights and black knights in HV already? I have never seen them so they must be neutral. I also have to agree with Paulus1, as the series progresses, demand for more new creatures will eliminate the old creatures eventually, no matter how much fan input there is. That is where H4 is great, because each faction had at least 8 creatures and you picked the ones you wanted. That ensured that the great oldies were kept, and that we saw some new faces.

Actually, it is. All it does is changing the uid of the sound - so it can no longer be called by the game.
