Summoning a ship during battle

I just saw this


Is it true? You can summon a ship during battle to kill your opponents as kind of some easter-egg exploit? (I've never tried doing this before.)

Re: Master of the Elements (H4)

I'm pretty sure Wheeler Dealer didn't, since he used evil sorceresses not toxic sorceresses.

Re: Heroes 4 The Restoration of Axeoth

Just gotta say, tweaking the cost of upgrades is a brilliant idea. This will definitely greatly reduce the number of Evil Sorceresses if the gamer wants a serious challenge. That said, I should add that if your scenarios require Evil Sorceresses to win, do mention it to the player. Evil Sorceresses ...

Re: Heroes 4 Ultimate v5 by Nimostar - Review and ongoing play journal by CJLee

OK, having played more of V6, here are a few more observations: -now there are so many new spells, I think Nimostar really needs to give us documentation. Otherwise I'll forget what spells there are, due to lack of familiarity. -Berserker given to Centaurs is not a good idea. The AI cannot handle it...

Re: Heroes 4 The Restoration of Axeoth

Um, I think upgrading mages to priests/ monks would be a much better idea. To upgrade to a level 4 Evil Sorceress is a bit too much (not to mention, the crazy sex change). The scenarios right now are already too easy.

Question: How do mobile guards work in H4

I'm a longtime player of Heroes games, and I still can't figure this out. Nor have I found satisfactory info online that answers my doubts. As you know, H4 has a choice of stationary and mobile guards or neutral creature stacks. I tend to just play the scenarios and campaigns as I find them, so I ne...

H5 Sanctuary Mod for download

I'm wondering if anybody has comments and reviews about this mod: http://heroes3wog.net/sanctuary-mod-download/ It takes the H6 new race, Sanctuary, and makes a mod for it in H5. There isn't enough information to tell me how it plays out actually given the complexity of H5 skill wheel and hero/ raci...

Re: Walkthrough: Campaign Lost Stories

Sorry for the late response Brainiac! I'm also writing this for anybody else who might be reading. One common theme for most experienced players, is that Heroes 7 is very easy, ultra easy, or insanely easy. Despite all the updates and patches, consensus says H7 AI is terrible. So it's not that I am ...

Re: Heroes 4 Ultimate v5 by Nimostar - Review and ongoing play journal by CJLee

Nimostar, I also saw your notes that said you decided to stop the Succubi from scratching their head since it was annoying. Can I ask you how many people actually said that? I found that remove-wig and scratch bald head animation very amusing. It's part of the charm of Heroes IV. Dungeon/ Asylum is ...

Re: Heroes 4 Ultimate v5 by Nimostar - Review and ongoing play journal by CJLee

OK, got Heroes Ultimate v6. due to lack of time, I cheated my way through the WOW campaigns after getting tired at how long it was taking. So now I have 5 heroes of every non-Life faction at levels 27-28. They are at their best, with many spells. Although with such strong heroes it is likely that I ...

Re: Collecting HoMM series laminated creature/unit cards

Wow, the memories are coming back! Yup, I HAVE seen the card you posted above before! And also on Ebay! I just didn't recall it in my last posts, because I never owned the card. Now I remember, it was sometime in the early 2000s. I'd misplaced my Armageddon's Blade (or left it behind) during summer ...

Re: Collecting HoMM series laminated creature/unit cards

I do (or did) have the black and white unit info manuals. I'd assumed that was all that was to it for Heroes 3. Reading your words took me back and jolted a long ago memory... Heroes II was always supposed to be a more 'sunny' version. Heroes III was described by reviewers and marketeers as a 'darke...

Re: Collecting HoMM series laminated creature/unit cards

Blake, it has been a quarter century since H3 came out. I remember making a special trip to buy it when it was released. I can't remember what version or packaging I got. But I definitely had a physical box (no virtual delivery back then!), and it didn't come with a card. I also vaguely remember the...

Re: Heroes 4 Ultimate v5 by Nimostar - Review and ongoing play journal by CJLee

OK, found what might be a game breaking bug. I'm playing map 2 of the Winds of War campaign, Death (Baron von Tarkin) faction. I've played this campaign several times before, and like it because of its many battles. But now I can't finish the map. I'm supposed to defeat all enemies, but I notice I c...

Heroes 4 Ultimate Nimostar's Easter Egg?

Look carefully at this

Image

The animation, which I can't screenshot, makes it even more obvious that it is an elderly man with a rollator walker.
And this is one of Nimostar's Heroes 4 Ultimate mod heroes!

Re: Heroes 4 Ultimate v5 by Nimostar - Review and ongoing play journal by CJLee

A bit of misunderstanding here, Nimostar. I didn't say Order is a glass cannon faction. I only meant that for Genies and Mages. Protecting these weaklings should be part of any Order player's priorities. The problem comes in Heroes Ultimate 5 when after 3 turns, Genies run out of mana. And what next...

Nimostar, I didn't say genies were overpowered. I said they were my favorite Academy unit and a mainstay whenever I play Order faction. If I really thought genies were overpowered, I would be afraid to fight against genies all the time. I am not. Genies are what they are because of their role as the...

Nimostar seems to take the view that Evil Eyes are underpowered. He's increased their hp to 25, and given them vampiric powers (Life Drain) as well.

The more I play Nimostar's Heroes Ultimate V5, the more I start running into little areas that still need smoothening out or polishing or at least some thought. Some creatures have 'nonfunctional' in their descriptions. Right now Nomads have First Strike and No retaliation. What is this supposed to ...

All right, after 6 weeks of in game time, I have made the following observations so far: -Berserkers are indeed unrecognizable now (changed to warriors) -Every spell school has seen substantial changes. -Nature faction now has lots of non-summoning spells, which makes them far more versatile.
