Might and Magic Warlords?

Postby the beavers1 » Apr 12 2012, 5:54

I have found this site that had a section about a MM Mod that is supposed to combine MM7 & HoMM3. Does anyone know if it is still under work? dead? or just put off for now? It sounds Like an interesting Idea, but As is you would need lots of programmers, artists, ect. that Are fans of the games and have the time to work on them, So I doubt it will finish but Hopefully It will.
I found it here:

Largely cancelled:

Project has been placed on hold until such time as we have ough staff to complete the project

We are also on about completly scraping this mod and using the concept for a full game rather than a mod Obviously there will be then no references to might and magic and in turn it will become its own game set in a different world

Keep posted on our homepage and forums for more information


Too bad, since those models would have come very much in handy... Why do people usually forget to opensource their cancelled projects...

Yes I bet it would have been a great help for current and future projects im sure )= in about 4-8 years hopefully I will be able to help make might and magic games after I get a degree in Computer Science, Gaming art and what not so that I can help program or even do some art modeling/sprite making.

I still have all the models and i am a fan of opensource work the trouble is noone ever asked me for any of the models as im sure if needed we would allow use of them in other mods or games.

the idea is still very much in my mind but current techonolgy does not allow the kind of army sizes i invisioned for this project im sure one day it will be resurrected at least the concept.

I mostly remember this project from their map of Antagarich done in thse style of HoMM3 global campaign maps :) Although some of the marked locations were inaccurately placed (like Phynaxia) or fanon.

Well, put them up for download, then! Of course nobody asks for assets while it's still in the making, but once it's done or cancelled, then they come very much in handy!

Nice map, but some locations are marked incorrectly: Harmondale should be more to the northwest, Phynaxia south of Harmondale (in northern Grainrich region) and Barrow downs more to the north. I'm also not sure why they decided to put the Nameless Land (the region where the World Tree and the Sparkling Bridge from the respective HC chapters are located) into Eeofol. There wasn't any mention of a desert there. .

There's also a number of fanon locations, which were probably to be featuren in the game. Corlagon may know more about them, I heard he participated in the making of this map.

All in all, the official map of Erathia from MM7 is the more accurate (and canonical) one, while this is the more detailed one.
