Heroes 5 Maps Submission/Review Thread

All Maps to be submitted get posted here, then players can download and review them.  Once they have been playtested successfully by several players, I will make one final review of the map & then post them on ToH's maps page.
Past closed threads continue on this thread.  Past threads:    Old Thread 1  Old Thread 2

Thanks, Guz. The Map Index is meant to be for all maps, not just multiplayer. I suggest mapmakers post their scenarios in both threads.

UPDATED TO 2.1 HOF

Dead Mans Lake version 2.1


It's a balanced 1v1 map, with 3 ways to reach your opponent, the shortest, obviously, being guarded by lots of spectral dragons.


Also, I'd like to point out, that since patch 1.3 there is absolutely no need to create those .pak files and putting them in \Data folder.
It is perfectly sufficient now to put .h5m file in the \Maps folder.
It's more natural and user friendly.

So the installation notes are:
1) put downloaded .h5m file in your \Heroes\Maps folder
2) play!

edit
Also, take notice that Ghasteater himself said he likes this map (and he is no.1 in ToH for the moment, so listen to what he says folks )

We just had a very nice and close game on this map, my nerco vs his haven. I beat him to the utopia by 1 turn, but then I just barely lost the final battle, failing to surrender/run when there was still time Good game Ghast!

At this point I can say that map is 100% bugfree, and pretty balanced too.

Battle For Honor and Hourglass

Battle For Honor 1.3
A clean balanced map ideal for multiplay. I have played through the map from both sides with normal and hard difficulties. This would be my current map of choice for multiplayer...no bugs to report

Hourglass 1.0
Currently fumbling around after completing the map on normal to get reaquainted with the various strategies available to complete a game. A very good recreation of the original. Like the H3 version getting to the middle quickly is key but having 3 same "like" castles removes potential unbalances.
A rich map of many paths and potential for huge heroes and armies.
thx JB

Both maps of great quality, thanks JB. On HG red player gets access to some chests without defeating level 4 guards. It is near the military station at the very left of red player's territory. No other bugs noticed so far, but I haven't finshed the map so far.

Keep up the good work, jb. What about some Giant War, Deth of Beth, Quest for Victory You vs Me? Any other projects still in planing phase?

Ves let me clear up some things , there are 3 ways to "install" homm5 maps :
1) Unpack to folder /data so that path is /data/maps/multiplayer/(mapname)
2)Get a zipped file of the map data (inside zip same path /maps/multplayer/(mapname)) and put it in /data folder - extension of zip need to be .pak

3)Put a zipped file with extension .h5m (also able to open it with editor) in dir /maps

To be clear - both the .pak file and .h5m are exactly the same files only diffrence is diffrent extension.

So basically map files can come either as .h5m files or as .pak files.

I think its more convenient to have maps as .h5m files but it really don't matter since they are same file.

New map!

New map here, be sure to tell me about any bugs.
Also see if you can find the hidden artifacts, there's one close to each player. I'm sure the cheating NPH (non player heroes ) will find em fast..

Hey,

- I think I found a "minor" bug on Hourglass map. Playing red, and you send out a hero to the small island ( with a shipyard and 1 pile of resources ) you can actually dock on the other island ( with the Lighthouse and etc. ) And it's just beside the lighthouse that you can dock. Intended ? or just adjust the guard(s) on that side e.g. lvl 2 guarding the wood-mine and or the lvl 3 guarding that side of the island.

[EDIT] - Instant Travel is not disabled - Intended or ?  I can understand why you probably wouldn't have done it on purpose ( having the Garrison in mind ) - But as I see it it's either tone down the garrison or leave the Instant Travel, but again then it wont be THAT BIG an end fight as ( if I read between the lines correctly ) you originally had in mind.

- BTW - I think that Betrugers map : Dead_Mans_Lake_2 is a great map and should have a place amongst the future maps on the report/download page. Nice map indeed.

thanks, ya those are both bugs. Ill adjust the guards so u have to fight to land and I will disable instant travel. Ill probably play test it another few times before posting the 1.1 version. As for Battle for honor.. I did make a few adjustments. Mostly I slightly lessened the middle guards and did a few minor tweaks.

Instant travel

Hour Glass 1.0
Yes please JB...other wise even on Hard it is too easy to storm the
middle and poach.

After winning on Normal then Hard I am currently battling on Heroic.
 After 8 weeks my opponent crashed through the border guards like confetti but decidied not to crush my main hero now holed up in center castle. He took one of the wings and stayed there for 2 weeks.
 Since then it has been a case of hit and run  whilst building my main hero up and staying out of range. Has been a long slow process but I have managed to banish him back to his side and retook all of mine.
 Soon to be 6 months of game time but getting the upper hand...always been a defensive minded player...
