Yeah I read on HC(?) that it was mainly made to host especially the new mods but also recent H5.5 and the likes. Again, getting some of that content on CH might be handy for the users, but as it requires the authors consent, linking is a good start.

Over 40MB it seems, they use for storage dropbox. Another interesting thing is, that the site is based on wordpress.

Thank you Pol, for fixing my account, and sorry for raising up an old thread - spammer that I am - but I am considering getting HoMM 7 .... how I missed that this had been released .... well, who knows.

But it's probably not a bad thing that I didn't get it any sooner.

So, to the heart of the matter - should I bother? I've read a fair bit of the thread, and I'm still unsure :-)

It depends. It's fairly playable but it doesn't introduce anything new to the franchise. If you are okay with that, the game is good.

Wow, look who's back. :)

My opinion is that the campaigns are quite enjoyable, and the few single maps available also seem OK. So the game is good for a playthrough, but if you're the king of person who loves playing user-made games for years and years, there aren't really that many maps out there. Another drawback is the lack of innovation; there's really nothing new with this game.

I imagine a kingdom full of such people.

I still remember the times when there were hundreds of such people around here ... :sad:

But anyway, to answer the question: yes, the game is worth buying if you want to play through it a few times and play with the given maps (and the RMG does work), but I don't think it's a game you should buy if you want a game you can play for years to come.

Oh and in case you guys still haven't read it, here is my H7 review.

Thanks Kalah, and also for the welcome (back). I am ok with it not being too new or fresh - it's been a while since I played HoMM, I skipped VI entirely, I played a reasonable amount of V .... but when I want to play the game .... I crank up III - sometimes even II - that's where it be at.

Cheers also hellegennes.

So I think I'll just go ahead and do it. I will probably have to wait til my new laptop arrives (little bit excited for that), but that can just increase the anticipation :) .

Once I get it going, might be around a bit getting some tips :D .

Oh, hello again, asandir. It's funny seeing people return when things seem a bit dire on the matter of future of the series.

Of course! It is worth buying!

My very first 64bit strategy game with a 64bit Map Editor that has an R.M.G. included into it. Just a question of getting used to when it is time to find the proper place to save the newly generated map.

So, yes, it has a re-playability option to the game. Raw as of now but, an all-inclusive R.M.G. is said to be inserted within the main game as for the Expansion(available for sale on August 4th of 2016-this year).

What I really like in the much larger maps is the possibility of a much smaller territory within the territory that can add to suspense of which player will know how to keep the main territory for keeps by making a sneak attack or counter attack to reclaim the main town of the main territory. So, 8 players could see the generation of 8 mini territories extra to such map = 16 overall(not including the sub-terranean level, of course).
