It's actually good news, this project is still very much new, and they will surely release something, because they obviously have something in their hat. Rushing things too much is not good either, quality work is welcomed. I look forward to see the results.

Good to hear, quality over quantity :tsup:

Take the time you need, you never said an especific date, just an orientative one, and if you can't finish it with that time, no worries.

Just keep the good work! ;)

Us HOMM fans wait with baited breath for this newest edition. I'm sure it will be well worth the wait, especially if the screenshots are anything to go by!!

31. new map objects, including a worldmap model for the pirate hero, Gazebo (works similar to heroes II), the Youth Fountain (all of the hero's creatures get a +25% health boost until the end of the next battle), the Ocean's Teardrop artifact and the brand new Pirate Battleship, a special class of ships available in the Cove town class exclusively
Image

32. monsters in battle: Sorceress, different types of pirates (pirate / corsair/ daredevil), Sea Dogs / Swashbucklers and the Sea Serpent.
Image

33. monsters in battle: the second hero type seen in combat (femele). The Nyx models were subject to a few cosmetical changes, Sorceress, and Sea Serpent on his way to kick some beholder ass :)

Looking great! Can't wait to play it. Keep it up guys :)

Call me stupid, but I've forgot how will this be installed? Over original SOD or with WOG?

Will any custom scripts we've made for WoG be overwritten or disappear if HoA is installed?

Oh Gods, this modification looks incredible. New quality in HoMM franchise, and what's the most important - made by gamers for gamers. From what I've seen, HotA will be so magical, this mood is fenomenal. Artifacts, creatures, map objects - it's obvious that You - HotA devs - strictly love and feel HoMM universe. When I'm looking at screens, I have this strange feeling, similiar to reaction, when i played HoMM for the first time, it's near mental orgasm;) Best wishes to You, thanks for Your effort, and good luck.

The best part (which i hate with WOG :disagree: ) is that the game balance (creatures, stats, etc.) will remain unchanged...

I believe that this 'add-on' game will provide hours, even years of entertainment!

darknessfood,
Hota will be mounted on original version of the game "heroes: SoD"

(or Most likely install on "heroes: Platinum/Gold")
This question is not solved yet

I sorry for my English
