Unofficial Contest: Best New Fortress

I made this thread because there is no town even similiar to Fortress. I'am planning to show Best town made in this contest to Ubisoft and thus help Fortress in returning. Rating is same as in ictc. I don't realy know how to show best work to ubi so i need help in it.
Even if it won't be shown we will at least have fun.
And remember fraze from Lord of The Rings?
"...this fortress will never fall while your men are defending it..."

SO LET THE BATTLE BEGIN!!!

And may the force be with you!

I am in...

I am in, Maslo. This is great - I thought of reviving the contest unofficially, but a discussion for only a single town is even better. What's more, the Altar will not lose the consistant number of posts.

If you need any help considering what you want to do with your 'pwetty' contest, ask me... I will start preparing my town soon.

THUS, my stronghold will not receive further updates. I am thinking of linking these two factions - their storylines - in future, but for now, I am into preparing the swampy town

Some quick notes:

Shall we keep the same rating system?
Where should we post our towns?
When would we stop posting (maybe March 1st ?)

It seems there are questions to discuss... Yet, I would not want to flood Altar with threads, concerning this unofficial little contest. Maybe Val would allow us to his forum? But if nay, we could still reside here

I'd rather not keep the rating system, as I have explained elsewhere (can't remember where). But hey.

My feel is that the old system put to much store on history and originality, and not enough on creatures, and to a lesser extent, race. Also judging balance is never easy. With originality, since this is a Fortress-only contest this will be a more sensible category to rate by since we are guaranteed not to have some `radical` ideas for towns. However if the system is used, originality for me would be a mix of fresh ideas and traditional ones - not just all of one or the other.

Perhaps I should stop complaining since I am not actually coming up with a new rating system...

Maby something like this:

History:
Units:
Balance:
Compatibily whit the HOMM universe:

Rankings:

Perfect (10)
Exelent (9)
Very Good (8)
Good (7)
Above avearge (6)
Avearge (5)
Bellow average (4)
Rather Bad (3)
Very bad (2)
Extremely Bad (1)
Patetic (0)

Then you plus them thogeter and count out the middleworth.

Ex:

History: 6
Units: 8
Balance: 5
Compatibily whit the HOMM universe: 7

6+8+5+7= 26 26/4= 6,5

Total ranking: 6,5

(The total number cannot be more than 10)

I think that creatues and overall idea is most important - history is useless for the time being. It can be done later, even not by town creator.

Theese are good ideas but Compatibility with HOMM V universe should be for short Compatibility.
And about history, every town in HOMM V has it's own history so Fortress should also have it, and it could be interesting to explain how Fortress got to new world, because there are no Lizardmen, Serpent Flies and any of creatures from Erathia in there.

These are also good ideas but playability is merged from everything so i think it could be replaced by creature line-up (line-up for short).

And about judges. Everyone should be able to rate entries. It will be better because how can you stop somebody from posting his rating? But of course there must be someone to count all the points. I can count them but if you want...

And the last one how i (or anybody else) will (should) count points. It is still matter to discuss but i think it will be best. Everybody will give points from 1 to 10 to each section, then he will add them all and later divide them by 5(I don't know how is it all called and if someone would tell me it would be very helpful) after that all points will be added and final rating for that entry would be gave.
And i will tell one more time it is a matter to discuss. I only posted that what i think is the best.

I think that my Insectopia http://heroescommunity.com/viewthread.php3?TID=17231&pagenumber=1 could be qualified into that contest, but I am also going to make 'normal' fortress entry.
Deadline should be about 10-15 march.

Yes make a new fortress entry! That is better than doing a replication of an old town.
Btw. coud we not do a great contest for making neutral towns? (Stronghold/Orc, Fortress, Conflux) It would be Great!

BTW I suggest not to use those 2 creatures:

1. Gorgon [unless you mean medusa] - creature like that does not exist, it is just another name for medusa.
2. Gnoll - they are not jungle or swamp creatures. Gnoll resembles a cross between a man and a hyena and fits into Stronghold, which is more desert based.

But it is just a hint

1: I also belived that, before some member here gived me evidence frome vikipedia that gorgons acuualy are some reptilian bulls frome Persian mytology. So maby they fit into acardemy!

2: Are they? I didn't know that! But I want some Fortress felling, the UCBNF entires should all be based on Heroes III Fortress.

Thanks for you comment anyway!

Fortress Fan:

I liked both gorgons and gnoll [hmm... I liked them less], but shouldn't get too homm3 oriented. Yes, fortress there was nice town, but we should make better one, especially when we want to give some suggestions for Nival [I hope they are making fortress for expansion and someone from them will read those entries ].

About gnoll: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gnoll.

I would take goblins into fortress and give gnolls to stronghold, I think that they shouldn't have any objections

Heh, I could work in game industry, all those mythology staff and writing stories...

Collecting info for my town and found that:

Christine Fitzgerald, a confidante of Diana, Princess of Wales, claims that Diana told her that the Royal Family were Reptilian aliens, and that they could shapeshift. David Icke and others have claimed that U.S. President George W. Bush and his family are part of this same bloodline.

But remember: every town in HoMM V is race based so you should make a one strong race that rules, some beasts that serve them and eventualy enslaved race.

And to Zeldor:
I know that some creatures don't fit to their castles (threads about it are everywhere) but (as it is said in some threads) HoMM universe is not our world and there gnols may be swamp creatures and gorgons may be bull like creatures and not names of mythical creatures.

About the judges

I think we coud invite Valera to judge the UCBNF proposals, so we can make sure than noone gives all other UCBNF's low rankings to secure its own victory!
Btw. Can't you do any UCBNF Maslo? it was after all you who started this ontest, and i like to see how you should have done a new fortress.
