Well, this is one of the very few times for me commenting on the WoG sub forum, but anyways, I thought I should give it a try. Judging by the released screenshots and reading all that information, I mean the long starting post and the other posts (or should I say updates) by HotA members, the work looks quite promising so far and some of the new features made me want to test them as soon as possible.
This may sound lame, but what I perhaps most eagerly wish to see in action is the so called bridge terrain. I'm a Heroes III map maker, and quite familiar with the H3 map editor. Knowing full well that there is no such thing as a bridge capable of operating as passageway for Heroes crossing water and, what is more important still, ships actually passing beneath it or "through" the bridge on their way between bodies of water, I'd definately put this new special feature into good use in my own upcoming maps.
The problem is that I have always felt highly suspicious of WoG and its far reaching changes. Knowing that HotA claims to be fully operational with good ol' Shadow of Death eases the "pain" considerably.
Anyways, and in many ways, I await the release of this fan made add-on and its various updates, versions and corrections. I am aware of the fact that I must use HotA's own map editor to use that new bridge terrain I so anxiously seem to be waiting for. It would be nice to just "export" this new feature and add it into the SoD map editor, but I guess that this is not possible as the HotA editor overrides its SoD counterpart. Oh well...
Good luck to the project, Team HotA!
Don't worry if things are going badly today. They will be much worse tomorrow.
