If you make each animation the model uses an effect, and double the size of the effect perhaps?


This would probably end up like my Sun Warrior, i.e. it would be impossible to make a moving animation, the creature would just have to slide along (I think, although there might be some settings you could cannily fiddle with to get it working reasonably well...).

Ooh really? Interesting. I guess the flying animation doesn't move by itself then, and all the movement for the flying is done by the game? (Did that make sense?)

@Radar:

No matter the simplicity of the method, changing the combat size to 2 works. Also the animations work properly. The creatures become really bigger but not big enough in my opinion.

I don't understand this, I just want to enlarge the model, the same thing that happens when you set combat size to 2. That should not have effects for the working of the animation.

Yes, and you're right.  The difficulty is making the animation corespond to the way it moves, which doesn't always work with walking units (see the Shaman for an example)

And I can't belive I'm saying this, but how do I make a custom map work in game?

Place the .h5m file in the Maps folder, if it doesn't exist create it.

Yes, I know, I just want to mention if you want to make creature taking 2x2 squares on battlefield and having Large Creature ability listed, all you need to do is just change CombatSize tag.

If you want to enlarge creature, IMO the best way to do so is erasing its model, adding creature again as effect and then you can make it even taking whole battlefiled by manipulating Size tag.

I think I am right in saying, that the model itself does not change size when you make the creature a large one, it only changes its combat-field footprint.

Lessons eh?

For the LOD textures, use the map editor, go into a Druid Elder's shared properties, then model, then each of the materials, and you will find the texture paths.

For the main textures, go into \Characters\Creatures\Rampart\ inside data.pak and open up the HighDruid.(Character).xdb file, then follow the link to the model, then materials, then textures, as before (of course HighDruid_LOD.(Character).xdb will link you to the LOD textures I mentioned in the top paragraph). Hope this helps, ask for more if not.

I post this on a wrong topic.
I want to make on a map, some creatures that are invisible to the players, and create some sort of ambush. In the other heroes was the "event" object on map editor.
I found on script documentation the command: IsObjectVisible(playerID, objectName), but I couldn't implement it on the script menu associated with a monster.
Could any one help me?

In a script, type


PlayObjectAnimation (objectName, idle00, INVISIBLE)


Replace objectName with the creature you want to do the ambushing's name.  (For names, select the creature, press ctrl+SPACE and look to your left)

Most creatures have idle00 as an animation, but you might have to check.  If it doesn't work take the 00 off.  

INVISIBLE will make the creatures invisible on the adventure map, but will have no effect in battle.  

There is no "Event" in Heroes V, for some reason...

Two, questions. I just downloaded the mod for the treant (the one that changes their image to the original one) and realised one of them doesn't have a death animation (the first upgrade) and I was wondering if it is possible to add this to the mod , and how to do it of course.
And also I'd like to know if it is possible to moddify the textures so that the units don't look so blurry (mainly the anger treant) because in photoshop they look OK but in the game they don't (I'm playing with normal quality, I don't know if that's the reason).

Thanks, it was a video-quality issue though, they look wonderful in high quality.
Any thoughts about the first question?
