Heroes 3 Gigamight mod 2.0 Rampart overview

Postby Artas1984 » Sep 27 2011, 10:33

Here are the resized creatures of Rampart. Unicorns stand 17,5 hands tall, while war unicorns are 19 hands tall. This is not exaggerated - the biggest horse on earth is actually 21 hands tall, while the average hight of horse is 16 hands tall. Obviously i made unicorns slightly bigger than horses in Necropolis and Castle. The elf stands around 170 cm tall, while the dwarf is around 115 cm tall. The ents and dragons are not resized. Humans will look slightly bigger than elfs.

EDIT: while editing Heroes 3, i found out that the centaurs are actually ranged shooters! There is hidden animation of how they throw their spears!

Heroes franchise was not about the free actions of Heroes or monsters, it was not about 3D of shiny graphics either, it was about diversity and balance, simplicity of gameplay and realistic picture, strategy in it's purest form. That's why Heroes 3 will be the greatest game of all, because only Heroes 3 has all those qualities together, no matter which one you personally like more. This statement is unquestionable, uncriticized and undeniable .

That's why they were one of the first creatures modded in WoG- they had the animation there. There is also a shooting animation for the manticore.

It kind of looks weird how the Centaurs and Pegasi have their horse bodies shorter than the Unicorn's - especially the War Unicorn's. I would make Centaurs/Pegasi a touch larger.

But then it would go against the pattern of proportion he's using, specially for the pegasi, where the rider would be larger than the elf. The rider is a woman, right? Unless she is Brienne of Tarth...

Exactly, Star King failed to understand, that if i am to increase the size of centaurs and pegasi, than the the human half-body of the centaur would be larger than a regular human, and the elf rider on the pegasus would be larger than elf. People who made Heroes 3, made the human riders look too big when compared to horses. Just look at the hero - even a medium sized horse should be bigger than that.

Also, war unicorns have to larger than other horses, since they are level 6 creatures with lots of hit points. They have to look "appealing". Cavaliers and dark knights at least have armor, so they don't have to look as big as unicorns.
