Heh! Assuming you've installed the Equilibris campaign editor later on, are there differences between it and the regular one in your case?

Mine are exactly the same size:

c_e_mod.exe 4.513.792
campaign_editor.exe 4.513.792

Equilibris files can be the same size as Heroes 4 original files, but contents differ :)

Here are some ideas regarding scouting radiuses.

1. Expand the "scouting radius" for lighthouses. This way they could be used as a sort of watch towers in addition to their main purpose.

I made a map where completing a quest would make you the owner of a bunch of lighthouses around the map. If you hadn't already discovered the area around the lighthouse when you became the owner, you could actually not see the top if it!

Lighthouses are actually quite tall, and it's "logical" that they would give more scouting radius. This brings me to the next one:

2. Watch towers. New adventure object, like garrisons without the gate and the ability to keep creatures inside. Slightly smaller and less scouting than Tower, Redwood Tree or Ice Spire.

3. When a hero is visiting a Tower, Redwood Tree or Ice Spire, not only is undiscovered parts of the map revielded, but the hero can also see enemy armies, as long as he stays in the tower.

To put it another way - The scouting radius from the Tower is "transfered" to the Hero as long as the Hero stays, and...

4. A Hero's scouting radius bonus, gained from scouting skill or different artifacts, also complies to the tower. So, a "scouting" hero will see more when visiting the tower, than a regular hero.

What do you think? These ideas are quite simple and should be easy to fullfill..?

The level of artifact in game (major, treasure etc.) and the tab in the editor are not connected. You can add artifacts to "heroes" tab, for example, if you want to.

It means, that artifacts are of some difinite level regardless of their position in tabs. If you want all artifacts to be placed correctly, download our 'equi.aop' file and replace your file in Data folder.

You can set some experiments, if you have doubts about artifact level. Place 200 "random minor" on test map and check what artifact it generates.

Sorry for this being not obvious, but we could not force install 'equi.aop', because it would harm those mapmakers, who have customised their map-editor a lot.

Mine are different. If you click on the "Addon" tab in the upper right corner, then look at the bottom and you will see the Equilibris - Adventure Objects & the Equilibris - Artifacts. :)

Be sure you are clicking on the shortcut for the correct editor because at first, after I installed the Equilibris Editor, I mistakenly launched the regular editor instead. :embarrased:

No. At least not now.

Nowhere, it doesn't exist.

some ideas for level 3 creatures: (valuable for multi player game)

The creatures you can little change for better equilibris:

Haven: monks could cost lesser: 500gold
The famous crusader very big now!!! could cost more : 700 gold on growth 5 by week

Necropolis: vampire need be better, cost 1000 gold and growth 4 by week

Barbarians: ogremagy are good now could cost more 500 or 550 gold
Cyclopes better growth 4 by week

I still maintain that monks should be able to cast beneficial spells in addition to their ranged attack. The ranged attack animation would suffice for the casting animation. Their spells should be: bind wounds, exorcism, bless, celestial armour, and holy word. Haven really needs a spellcaster (I don't consider angels to be one), and the monk is a perfect canidate.

I once made a suggestion about granting efreeti certain spells to complement their weakness, and them being the opposite of genies. Firebolt, speed, sparks, disrupting ray, and misfortune would suffice.

I also remember posting a suggestion regarding the restoration of the "no retaliation" ability for the devils, but it didn't reach the ears of the equi team either.

You should make those creatures spellcasters:

Monks - healing spells
Angels - protection spells
Efreti - chaos magic

Glalactygon, i'm agree to give some spell to monks as holly word, or healing......
but efreeti are enough strong, and devil are very strong because of teleport, on multi player game the devil are maybe the best level 4, 2 stacks killed on the same turn the tactical heroe, and game is over.....

I tought that Efreti are strong until I became more expirienced in HOMM. Now, they seem like weakest lv. 3 unit. I would rather take the nightmare who can terorize enemies strongest stack until I get rid of other units.

Efreti are good against small armies as the stronger army turns theme intio ash very quickly. And fire shiel should be a bit stronger.

Nightmares are nothing special against weak armies, but by playing tacticaly, you can turn enemy army thats twice stronger then yours into ashes when you use terror on their strongest stack (and terror lasts 3 turns which is enough to destroy the stack with archers or bring your meelee units to theme).

It mostly depends on situation.

Once I give the AI 100 black dragons, 50 angels and at least 10 megadragons and a lv 40 hero while I have nothing, then the AI isn't so poor any longer.

BTW, what a hell is IA suposed to mean? :P
