@Artas 1984 Thank you for the constructive critisism. I do know that I'm not the first person to have the idea of making a map of his own using a map editor. I believe that I may very well be amongst the first 500 or so people here on CH to come up with a map for any game of the Heroes of Might and ...

I'm now back from a trip to Tallinn, Estonia. Not feeling that much relaxed but still able to carry on the H 3 map projects. (Man, those cruises are going to be the death of me. I'm so tired... and not to mention the hang-over.) I did some testing on "Tolkien's Middle-Earth" before leaving yesterday...

Update Jan. 26th. 2008 I forgot to tell you that in my current version of the upcoming map "Tolkien's Middle-Earth" Northern Orcs are allied to Saruman the Wizard which makes the map 2 Human teams (Elves of Mirkwood and Rivendell allied to Humans of Gondor) vs 2 CPU non-allied players (Saruman's Ise...

Muszka has made the team of testers and thus there is room left for 9 more people. @Muszka Welcome aboard, friend. Always nice to have you with us. @Metathron Have you played Heroes II? If you are familiar enough with that game, playing Heroes III won't be such an impossible task. A friend of mine o...

Tolkien's Middle-Earth map for H3: Testers Wanted

Hello All I'm currently making a Multiplayer/Co-operation map for Heroes III: Armageddon's Blade. The map is called "Tolkien's Middle-Earth" and as its title says, the map is about the LOTR focusing on the War of the Ring. The version is not numbered but a kind of a Beta version. (perhaps 0.80) At t...

My pick is the mana stealing, regenerating evil bastard of a creature from Heroes III, the Wraith. The glowing red eyes inflict terror on all players who encounter them early in the game, not just the ones playing with magic orientated Hero. That regenerating ability is especially annoying if you ar...

Greetings, Heroes fans I have now gone through almost all feedback gathered from "Operation Turning Point"'s test players and other commentators, including opinions and remarks by my wife Tiare, the author of "The Atoll Island". I agree with my own team of testers that some minor stories should be a...

@Muszka Thanks for the reply. As I explained earlier, I think that in the end all Human and CPU positions in "Operation Turning Point" are in order and that the overall design and the theme in which the map is set are in harmony with one another. I agree with you that the map is ready for release he...

Out of the three candidates, I chose the H3 Manticore. I like the colour, the tail, oh well... I like the unit's overall design. Scorpicore is way too red, in fact it looks "unnatural" (if you can say that of a fantasy based creature anyway). Although I like Scorpicore's special ability, the unit lo...

@Muszka Thank you for the feedback. Here are some of my own 'findings' after doing some more testing on "Operation Turning point". These are thoughts that came to me as both from the map maker's point of view and that of a "regular" player. "Operation Turning Point" is free of bugs but somehow I sti...

I may include an alternative special edition of my already released H3:SoD map Viking Invasion as a bonus is that is what you ...

Update 14th Jan, -08 Operation Turning Point (H3:SoD, Co-Op map of size M)is ready for testing. It now has more quests, better graphics and more carefully planned and tried overall balance in CPU vs Humans. What it lacks is testing and some more testing (by folks other than me and my wife and the re...

I voted for the (as described in the in-game text) Offensive spellcaster, the Heroes III Faerie Dragon. The unit has a cool purple skin with a truly mischievous look in its eyes. In my opinion, it really looks like a Sorcerer Dragon with enough power to cause serious havoc or just a little prank whi...

I'm looking for the Clash of the Dragons in its UK version. I have all other Chronicles as UK versions and would hate to break the chain so to speak. But I will welcome US version too if it's not going to interfere (complicate things) with the previously installed parts in the series. I checked the ...

There's only one "true" Behemoth here that can claim the prize: the Ancient Behemoth. Its only drawback is speed. With a speed value at 9 in regular terrain and 10 on its native terrain, the Behemoth will have to wait to get his terrible claws on enemy units. But I agree with UnDeadHalfOrc, there's ...

I voted for the updated Heroes III demon. The armor looks quite nice and indicates that the unit is elite infantry - just take a look at the golden battle gear of his. Also, the horns of the unit look longer and more pointy, indeed they are reserved for running head first into the enemy. The Horned ...
