@All Modders: GREAT JOB!
Is it possible to color the buildings that have "Upgrade limit[..] reached" in a different color from the ones that cannot be built due to missing town points or prerequisites? In the Agrael campaign, it is really annoying to build the Fort and then get the above message for the Citadel (and this is just one example). Thx.

1.3 patch note:

the new patch "breaks" the mods in exactly the same way 1.2 did. To fix, just update the dates on the files in the archives and repak.

I've already done this with the sev mod and will upload it momentarily.

no.... the artifact description mod was made redundant.

the sev mod adds the creature number ranges to the stack descriptions, remember (it doesn't just change "sev")?

well, if you don't you can check the description in the table i made above.

I think someboody should make a mod that makes the 1.3 map editor more user friendly - like the H3 editor

Yes, I agree, make a mod where the building colors reflect the old games: Green if it can be bought, Red if it can't, and Gold if it has been bought.

For the Gryphon v. 1.4 mod you'll need to update the input.cfg again for the save/load functions to work again.

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.

thanks.


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...)

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:

http://www.celestialheavens.com/homm5/mods/fasttrack.zip

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

cheers_Toejam

addendum:

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

How 'bout a mod that makes the editor more like the Heroes 3 editor? That would make it easier to use and there would be more maps on the internet for people to download.

that's actually a very major request; you can't just tinker with a data file written in xml to make major changes to the editor.

as to the continuous requests for mods from other sites...

I'll say it again:

If you want a mod you like to appear here, send me a PM with a link, and at least some indication that the author is OK with having the mod posted here.

simple.

Ok, understood.
There are a lot of resources on the net but we should contact also the author, you are right.

I will see if i can come up with something :)

yeah, one of the things i really like about CH is that they try to establish some sensible guidelines for map testing and mods. It might not be necessary, but it seems polite and fair, at the very least.

OK, someone found out from Nival that the necro guild costs not changing was a confirmed bug, so I made a mod to fix it so the necro guild costs are the same as the others.

enjoy.
