Image Hosted by ImageShack.usA few Round Table members started messing about with their installation of Heroes V, and the results are quite interesting. The two very small mods that have already been released so far can be found in the new Mods page: there's the Tooltip Sound mod, which removes the sound played when you move your mouse over an object, and the Black Knight mod, which replaces the Necropolis' Wights and Wraiths with Black Knights and Death Knights. Both have been tested by forum members and appear to be harmless. However, please note that modding your game could possibly cause some problems (if that should happen, a reinstallation should resolve the issue) and that Ubisoft doesn't provide support for mods.

More mini-mods are under construction: check out the Gargoyle mod in the forums.

Modifications

Below is a list of small game modifications for Heroes of Might and Magic V. Created by fans, they are meant to provide a slightly different experience in your game. Be aware that they could possibly mess up your Heroes V installation, so handle them with care. Celestial Heavens cannot test all mods that are published here, but those you will find here come from a reliable source.

There's no denying that mods can make a game far more enjoyable to begin with, and can keep it fresh for a long time afterwards. With that in mind, I'm hoping we can use this page to build a nice little modding community for HoMM V here, and help add to this great game. Look for new and updated mods as new patches come out, and hopefully we can put together a bit of a guide as to how to make your own soon. -Sir_Toejam

  • Some mods have been updated for the latest patches, see if there is a note to that effect under the listing for your favorite.

    I've added readmes and screenies to a lot of the mods, and packaged them inside of zip files for less confusion and easier organization.

name: Confusion spell fix
type: spell modifier
fixes the confusion spell to work correctly. It seems that the game engine was programmed with an inverse way of calculating percentages for this spell, as to how it affects a stack it is cast on. So, while it was supposed to affect 90% of the creature's ranged/retaliation in a stack at advanced level, in reality it was only affecting 10%.
this mod simply inverts the % affected for each level so it works like it says it should.
