Necropolis evolution

Unread postby berntie » Jul 26 2006, 15:55

Since everybody seems to be opening polls on various creature or town evolutions, I thought I might add one myself. Here we go:

Which Necropolis town design do you like best?

Heroes II:

Heroes III:

Heroes IV:

Heroes V:

For me, it's a tough choice between II and III. If I have to choose a winner, I think I'd stick with II.

Number 3 for me.

And we're supposed to wait 7 days between opening a new evolution poll.

that one from H4 is the best (but where's the lava terrain?)

H5 necro town looks like a stupid copy of Minas Morgul

It's not stated anywhere very visible, except maybe in the Creature Evolution thread here, but it is a convention nonetheless. I was just saying that because this is the second evolution thread opened ahead of time and the whole situation is kinda funny ;)

H5 for me, dark and mystic as it should be, only the music is its drawback.

And yes wait with more evo thread or I mafraid it will get banned from the face of the forums *cough* Offical praise thread *cough*

It goes for creature polls.But this one should be discussed with moderators,nevertheless.

Oh,and HII is the best.HIII is a bit sci-fi,HIV a bit plastic,and HV is too green.

H2. The pile o'skulls, skeleton on a stick and the B.Dragon dwelling are the best ever. And the rest looks good too.

Everything is a little too cluttered together, but H2 is still the best and reflects necropolis better than any other. It has the best Necropolis music too, both original and expansion.

H5 is so dark that I can't even see what the buildings look like. But I love the moon in the backround; it's beautiful.

This aren't Creature Evolution polls!!! This are city Revolution polls!!!

And yes, you need to wait for 7 days until opening the new one.
I am back and ready to... ready to... post things.

Why "revolution"? Are the cities going to turn on those poor creatures and destroy them? They won't have any other place to live. But I have an extra room in my house if any behemoths want to move in. And it's much nicer than a dark, scary cave too. Or is it a crag?

Voted HIV. Looks good. I like the cities in HIV.
HII looks way too crouded, just like all cities in HII. and what the hell is the bone dragon doing on a merry-go-round?!?! (however, I noticed this forum is a bit obsessed with everything from HII, so I'll let it slide that HII always wins no matter what the poll is..<sigh>)
I don't like the cities in HV solely because all the building are built in this circle aroud the town hall or on it instead of spreading out. other than that all the cities in HV looks gr8. :)

btw, the picture of HIV town is not the necropolis one, rather the inferno one. I know they come together, but you can choose in each tier wether you'd like the necros units (with ghost, vampires and bonedragons) or the inferno ones (with cerebro, those green goo's and the devil- as shown here)

I voted HII. I've never played it but I really like the the way it looks. It's a bit crowded but that's okay too :)
I love the colours, the pale light (I imagine it's moonlight but ;| ) and especially the imaginative building design. I'm impressed as I've never been with the looks of HII..

Vote 4. 2 is a carnival..., 3 seems a bit boring imo, and 5 is too pointy.

I have to vote Heroes 5. Yes it's pointy and all, but it is also menacing, and it fits how an evil castle should look like (Think Black and White).

On the issue of starting polls:

Obviously, we need a policy about starting evolution polls. It would be a good idea to discuss it with moderators, but I don't know which location is suitable for such a discussion. (Unfortunately, there's no feedback forum. Maybe such a thing could be created?)

AND: The resulting policy should be made visible for all to see. Maybe there should be a stickied post?

On the issue of the poll name(s):

IMO, evolution says what it's all about. I can't see why it should be called revolution. There's certainly nothing "revolutionary" about any of the town designs.

If somebody could provide a correct screenshot, I'll edit my post.
