PERFECT!

And I rarely use that word, but this is!

Now - can someone take these skins and make the appropriate related files to make a MOD for EU Version that'll make this Saphire Dragon as Sylvan level 7 upgrade?

And will it be possible to add either Weakening Strike or Vulnerability on attack?

wow... now i am impressed...

alcibiades said "perfect"? ...oi, the world is coming to an end...

btw, any of you H5 structure savvy types, is it possible to switch the models of the two sylvan dragons and change fire breath colour? (both should be easy)

Dragons look nice, but i dont understand why DND has to interfere with HOMM, emerald sounds like better upgrade to green than saphire.

I don't want to upgrade Green into Saphire. I want to upgrade Emerald into Saphire and quit the Green one all together. And I just made this wish because I'd love to have such a MOD, there might not be a lot of others who feel that way.

EDIT> *BUMP* Did this project die completely?

I don't know - I'm not familiar with these skins and textures and which folder they should go into, etc. etc. I had hoped there would be someone who new how to make it into proper mod who would be willing to compile it if you send it to them. If the files are in the proper folders, maybe you could just make a zip-folder and mail them to me - if this is an option, send me a HC Instant Message or let me know here, and I'll give you my e-mail.

I love the new look of the Dragon but I would prefer a MOD without touching the game balance in any way. Maybe there can be two MODs - one only for the Skin and one modding skin and attack specialty?

YES - I played my first game with the new skins today, and the Saphire Dragon looks *amazing*. Much better than I had ever dared hope.

New objectives:

- Change Icon to match new blue colour. This should be fairly easy for anyone with software to open dds files, so please, don't hold back.

- Make new Emerald Dragon skins for Green Dragon. This one is probably a bit more chalenging, but actually, the changes would only be minor. I would just like to see a deeper hue of green for the Greens, instead of the very pale yelowish green they currently have. I can live with the current colour and just rename them, if nobody are up for the task.

Green Dragons aren't all evil... Dungeons and Dragons made that up...

HOmm dragons are very different from D&D dragons anywayz.

But that blue dragon looks beautiful.

BTW if this is possible, would it also be possible to change the nightmares red flames into purple flames?

The succubus upgrade flames into indigo flames

The demon flames into green flames.

The pit lord flames into dark red flames.

Is this possible?

*lol* Let's try not to be too tough on each other here. I just bashed Asrah for creating a new thread in the Altar, and now she's bashed for not making one.

And I guess I owe Asrah an appology for being a bit cross that day, so sorry for that, and let's bury the hatchet.

About the Azure Dragon icon

(Man, am I persistant here ...)

Ok, I actually managed to make an icon for the Azure Dragon, here's a .jpg and a .gif version:



However, I need someone to make these into the proper file format for the game (.dll files?). I don't have photoshop, so all I ask of one of you guys would be to download the pics, and save them in the proper format. If you can do that, I'd be really grateful!

About those ... icons!

I thought I was starting to get the upper hand on the situation, but there are some trouble here I cannot solve, so I'm - once again - asking you modding wizards for help.

For those who don't know the situation, let me explain: I want to change the Icon of the Emerald Dragon, and have made a new Icon that looks like this (these are .jpg version - more about that below):



The first problem was making the Icons into the proper file format, which turned out to be .dds files. I found a converter to transform files into .dds, and it works for 3 of the files. However, all icons have to be there in 128x128, 64x64, 55x55, and 32x32 pixels, and this converter will only accept files that are in the size of a power of 2 (2, 4, 8, 16, 32, 64, 128 etc.) and will therefore not convert the icon in size 55x55! I don't know if there's a way to work around this?

Next up, the icons have to go into the proper folder, and this is where the true mystery starts! Comparing to various Mods, I found that the proper location would seem to be:
data > textures > interface > combat arena > faces > preserve
Very well, there I found the icon called ico_Greatdragon_128.dds which seemed to be the proper one - or so I thought. However, deconverting this icon turned out to be another icon than the one in the game:



The one on the left is the one in the folder, the one on the right is the one in the game. So, the questions are:

- Where is the actual location of the Emerald Dragon icon in the data folder?

- How do I make a .dds file of a pictures sized 55x55 pixels?

55x55 pixels dds

- How do I make a .dds file of a pictures sized 55x55 pixels?

The answer is simple...you dont. You have to make the dds file with a resolution that is a multiple of 4. The closest you can do is 56x56. The difference is quite small and the picture will work in Heroes V. I have done several in game changes myself such as removing the chains, muzzle and all those ugly scars from the Minotaurs. I also made them look a little more furry. Hope this helps.

Unfortunately, the program I used to convert to .dds still won't accept the file, because the size is no power of 2 (how odd is that!?). But I've uploaded a 56x56 .jpg version here - would you be able to make it .dds and upload it / mail it to me?
