Is there any possibility to add new town in Heroes V?

I have new creatures, they waiting for new town. My precious creatures is homeless and imageless and only name and stats is that they have.

You can use alredy defined abilities only for your creatures.

Everybody know how to edit textures. But you need also complete 3d model with animations for idle, movement, attack, defence and death. And then convert it in game readable format. And converting is a problem too.

Textures are stored as DirectDraw Surfaces (.dds) so there are tools to convert it and even photoshop plugins. Try DxTex to convert it from/to .dds

Thanks.

I realy don't know to create picture, I am not artist. Only what I wont is to change color of some creatures, or their icon, but never mind I never do it because I don't know.

By the way, I change all stats of creatures in Heroes V like in Heroes III, and change value of exp (Now 33th level is maximum level of Hero in map Rise to Power from creature expirience, because of that I change the map and put 9 tree of knowledge in map. Now maximum level of Hero is 40th). Now game is realy fast and beautifull like Heroes III, and battle is not boring. Also I change that Capitol can be build in 12 day. I know that in Heroes III Capitol can be build in 8 day. I change all that could be change from Heroes V to Heroes III, know the game is good and beautifull.

I start work on random map editor it is hard but I like hard work. Only I scare is that the AI cannot work properly in my random created map, I don't know how it work.

Mod hero's skills

hi all. i have been trying to change the heroe's skills in a compaign, but with no luck (mine, not the skill ).
for example, i tried to remuve the Defence skill from Raelag in the 4th compaign, and replace it with Luck and Logistics, but the mods i made didn't do the job.
i guess i mod the stats in the wrong file (i changed the stats in data.pak\MapObjects\Dungeon\Raelag.(AdvMapHeroShared).xdb).

can someone tell me what is the target file to mod for such purpose ?
i would really appreicate it if someone can direct me with the correct changes in the source code reuired to acheive the above changes with respect to Raelag, to i'll know i made no other mistakes.

Thanks

In this case, it's enough. Actually, I just tried replacing HERO_SKILL_DEFENCE by HERO_SKILL_LUCK and it worked.
But you have to start the campaign for it to work. Maybe you loaded a savegame or started the second or more scenario.

Note that in any map, the map itself can override the hero file, adding skills or modifying stat. That's done in the map .xdb file. It's not the case here, but generally it could be.

thanks, but unfortinatelly it didn't work. i stated the compaign from the begining, but nothing.

I double-checked my ability to mod senarioes by changing this code:
Item>
<Creature>CREATURE_ASSASSIN</Creature>
<Count>15</Count>
</Item>
into this one:
Item>
<Creature>CREATURE_ASSASSIN</Creature>
<Count>100</Count>
</Item>
in the file data.pak\Maps\Scenario\C4M1\C4M1.xdb. it was supposed to result in an initial quantity of 100 assassins instead od 15, but there was no such change.

do you, or anyone else, know what i'm doing wrong ?

The code itself is correct. However, there are a few things that can go wrong:
- You put the edited file at the wrong location
- If you packed your mod, you used rar format instead of zip
- If you packed your mod, you didn't rename it to .pak
- You have other mods that create conflicts
- While editing text files, you changed the file encoding (it should be UTF-16LE) - but that's not a concern here

I suggest you start without packing the mod if you tried that. Just put the edited file in his file structure inside data/
Tell me exactly what you did and where you put it, if it doesn't work.

You can't.
Using the console, you can give experience to your heroes, or level the up:
@GiveExp("hero_id", exp_amount)
@LevelUpHero("hero_id")

refer to the cheating guide or the thread about it more info:
http://www.heroesofmightandmagic.com/heroes5/heroes5_cheats.shtml
http://heroescommunity.com/viewthread.php3?TID=18589

Alternatively, you can try to increase the experience given by monster, by tweaking the ExpCoefs values in
data.pak\GameMechanics\RPGStats\DefaultStats.xdb
There is a coef for each difficulty level, in campaigns and not in campaigns.

Edit: or you can add an lua script that attach a function to the hero level up events. This function would add part of the experience needed to next level, effectively reducing the gaps.

I tried to create Random map generator, generator works nice but not perfect. I have a problem with AI, because if computer doesn't know what to do, it do nothing and game crash.

Generetor works like this:
I use the map Rise to Power like template. All map objects move. Map looks different, and that is what I wish. Like you play new map because you don't know the map. Only that you know all object, which are being on map Rise to Power, is there again, but on differente place.

AI problem can be solved, but I don't know how.
I know that the map works and game doesn't crash if it played in hot-seat. Map works fine, and there is no problem except you do not have a computer, only human players.

RMG?! Is this the link? I'm sure there are fans who would love to download it and help you with testing it.

Here's a list of some new stuff which I haven't seen here:

3D models pack by Shadow and Daion-Fang. The mod replaces all hero models (in addition, Sandro replaces Zoltan and Solmyr replaces Nur!). For example, here's Lucretia.

Hero paperdoll mod by metos & friends rearranges the inventory. Simple but a must have!

Recolored dragons by Tedil_DW brings back H3 dragons. For example, here's the Red Dragon.

 This is an older mod that introduced "readable fonts".

Here's a page with several Russian mods uploaded. The names are self explanatory.

Visit another Russian page here.

Finally, here's a well-known page in French hosting various mods.

@ sfidanza: Perhaps you could contact the authors in order to host their work at AoH or make a sticky index in this subforum...?

Ogg files are video files and they can easily open whit freeware vlc player. You might need new DivX codecs also. Save your video to an Ogg format and rename it. Then replace older file and now you have new Heroes V video!
