Re: Might & Magic: Heroes 5.5 (unofficial)

A few things 1. You are overly concerned with morale penalties, going over 5 has no impact and you already start with 2, in many late game scenarios a morale penalty is hardly a penalty at all. 2. Shamans & Witches don't get a different treatment with morale penalties, the system where heroes a...

Re: Some ideas on 3D in Heroes that I hope modders will take up on.

I’m quite happy to discuss this, because I considered it also. I played some war games in the past, and realize that there can’t be perfect simulation of time on a turn based game, but we still can have a reasonably workable yet sophisticated simulation. Firstly, a simulation will never be perfect. ...

Re: Might & Magic: Heroes 5.5 (unofficial)

Well... maybe I'm wrong on the Renegades. There was always so much going on that morale penalties could have come from elsewhere. However, I notice both Shamans and Witches get morale penalties on their non-Stronghold troops. Even when there are no Stronghold troop around eg all-Sylvan or all-Haven ...

Re: Heroes VII. - Development cancelled

BTW, I believe it should be MUCH CHEAPER to do live action filming, than 3D modelling, for certain cutscenes. There are lots of cosplayers who would be happy to sit around a round table and discuss strategy with H7 Ivan, for instance. You could get actual fan volunteers to do all the work, and just ...

Some ideas on 3D in Heroes that I hope modders will take up on.

There has been a lot of back and forth on the use of 3D in HOMM. I don’t think 3D is a wrong thing. Just that it is badly implemented and implemented without enough resources. For example there has been too much focus on the eye candy. Such as 3D adventure maps that look very beautiful but are a pai...

Re: Might & Magic: Heroes 5.5 (unofficial)

Ok... that explains it... it is very disappointing because I depend heavily on Dark Magic in most of my strategies. For instance I just finished a game where I could simply not have won had I chosen to use anything other than to spam Puppet Master and Vampiricism. (I cheated to give my Knight Dark M...

Re: The Hunger Games Map in H7

Applause for your hard work, Antalyan! As I said, people like you are the future of Heroes 7. If there are not enough mapmakers like you the franchise will die. Now, since this is a custom map, I would recommend taking the ideas from Heroes mod5.5. 1) you are the mapmaker and I'm sure you know how d...

Re: Where to Next for the M&M Franchise?

Sorry but is extremely selfish if you wish for the series to be further tarnished just because you personally prefer/want more activity on fan forums. That is a total misreading of what I said and have been saying. I am not personally committed to any particular type of Heroes. I just want a good g...

Re: The Stupid Week Thread

But really, some of those weeks, these that made your ranged troops rather useless, these effects could have been brought by implementing terrain and weather penalties, or even weather-like spellcasting, like Windstorm (making ranged attacks deviate from target etc.). There was simply so much poten...

Re: Where to Next for the M&M Franchise?

Feel sad reading GreatEmerald's reply. Seems as though there are stiff obstacles in every direction. Yes, I never considered the Ubisoft HD because I don't like Ubisoft, the HD looked bad, and of course it was lacking in the full content. We'll see what the next few years bring. But I'm afraid Heroe...

Re: Where to Next for the M&M Franchise?

Even though I have found much fault with H6 and H7 (and not refrained from talking about their faults)… I don’t think they are totally turds. They have their (limited) good points, which is why there are small numbers of people like Antalyan who genuinely like H6 and H7 and are not afraid to voice o...

Re: Where to Next for the M&M Franchise?

Re: What do you think the future of Might and Magic Shall Behold?

I talk about average and you talk about exceptions. Not to mention Stephen King is repeating himself horribly for the past 20 years. Age is not irrelevant when talking about creativity and there are both sociological and biological reasons behind it. You simply need to accept that, it's not insulti...

Re: Might & Magic: Heroes 5.5 (unofficial)

The mod deserves way more than 2.8k downloads, but I don't think it will go as far as it deserves to. Ubisoft really destroyed the brand name and drove away many fans without getting many new ones. That said I should report some bugs or oddities... 1) divine vengeance Does not work properly on Archm...

Re: Where to Next for the M&M Franchise?

And now that I am playing the Heroes 5.5 mod by Quantomas, Magnomagus and their team, I really do not want to go back to H2 and H3 unless their AI is also given a big time update. I think it is time for H3 and H5 fans and their modders to communicate and get the best of each version. We really do no...

SoD were done by Virtuos. There are some game breaking bugs presented, if that happens you need to reload that part of campaign. The late is game is also bit of boring (yes, that's the part with bugs, when you are against Inferno). If you will be trying to playing it just for sake of completeness I...
