As we still haven't been able to get a proper map section up and running, we're entering manual mode. I've been frustrated over this but then I remembered: we have a forum, let's use it. Maps can still be uploaded and downloaded to and from our servers, it's just the actual map section pages that don't work. So, when you want to submit a map for testing or distribution, use the e-mail: maps(a)celestialheavens.com. As soon as we have it uploaded, a post can be made in our forum's mapmaking guild. There, we can create dedicated topics to each map, for discussion and feedback or just matchmaking.

A new map is already out for testing - a Heroes V TotE map which you can find and discuss here.

Alternative solution for maptesting, if you want to do the whole thing yourself (it's faster), is to upload the map somewhere online, and then create a forum post in the mapmaking guild yourself. Just enter a link to where the file can be found, your contact information and whatever else you want to say.

Developers (and they are still looking for new modders) are Lord Graa, Antalyan, Arsheesh, ticor and Maksim Bugrimov, Evgeny Korchuganov (3D Modelers).

Monsters and many faction details, including maps and scenarios are already in. As monsters there are done Scavenger, Mine Beetle, Searcher, Xenophage and Enslaver. Also some heroes like undead Yana Rane and plethora of factions, making a chance for perfect plot. :D

The project is in czech language only, with fraction of description translated to english.

newshornDear visitors,

Our virtual server provider will be doing an upgrade some time this month. We have been placed in a queue, so we don't know exactly when it will happen, but we expect a few hours downtime when it's our turn.

If you see us down, rest assured it should only be for a short while.

Julien Pirou aka Marzhin h7 dev letsplay oct14Level designer Julien Pirou, also known to us old-timers as "Marzhin", has announced that after working with the Might & Magic franchise for seven years, he is moving on to other projects. Pirou has been applying his creative talents as a level designer on the Heroes VI adventure packs, Might & Magic X and Heroes VII.

Pirou went on to say that he had had a great time working with Limbic and that he had learned a lot about the process of game production. We wish him every luck for the future.

You can find our previous interviews with Marzhin on our interviews page.

Today saw the official launch of the stand-alone expansion to Heroes VII: "Trial by Fire". It introduces the Fortress faction with two new campaigns.

There is also an update available for all players, taking the state of the game to version 2.0 and bringing in an in-game map generator and a skill wheel.

As you know, the info streaming session was cancelled, so you will have to look elsewhere for info. Here is the lineup.

Launch trailer:

M&M Steam Sale
There is a big sale on Might & Magic titles in the Steam shop, with several titles going at as little as -75%. Heroes VII is going for 50%.

If you've been waiting for that price dump to pick up a title or two, maybe this is the moment?

Thanks to the Panda for the tip.

Ubisoft have been hyping a live Twitch stream for about a month now, in order to promote the upcoming release of the Heroes VII expansion, "Trial by Fire" in a few days. Now we're getting reports (in an almost April Fools manner) that the whole thing may not be happening.

My first reaction was: "What? No, that must be a mistake."

My second reaction, once I realized this might be serious, was one of dejection.
