Amazing stuff. A little bit buggy however (is it me or town screen is a little bit... "slow" to move?), but still an awesome present for the new year. Great graphics, great concept, even if it's beta it's VERY good... and also really good music.

Just like any other town screen. You can load Necropolis, build 1st Aid Tent, Cover of darkness and see it for yourself.

I suppose this is because of platform limitations.

Well, I missed the release - and the original page is already down

But if it's true, undoubtely it's the milestone in Heroes 3 mod development. I still find adding comletely new town an unlikely task.

Now waiting for English version (I may try Russian, but it will probably cause font glitches). And WoG version. And version compatible with other mods... yeah, there's still a lot of place for improvement

Long life Heroes 3!

Installed it, looks awesome so far.

The problem is that I don't see Cyrillic letters, but those weird symbol thingies which I'm not sure how to fix. Probably need a Russian version of Heroes III.

Thanks The_Polyglot. Install is simple (better said normal). Played it for 1h, no problems so far. New units are looking great (even the new units in old towns that have changed, look much better than old ones). The only little problem that I have at the moment is that they changed the colors of arrows when moving heroes, so i cant see how many movements my hero has.

Installed and played, I am greatly impressed. Though once while I was playing, it closed when I moved to day 6 but that happened only once.

I also noticed that the new town and units are not in the map editor, will they be available in it?

Yes, this is a high-priority task.

Good to know.
What about the alternative units though, like the dragonslayers in castle and leprechauns in rampart? Were they discarded or?

I'd say that it's not HotA that was released, but Cave. And a small campaign. All those features you heard about are still planned, but they're for next builds.

Screenshots don't show any new kind of terrain added, but I've seen some kind of sand in former posts. Are new terrains present or removed?

I updated the master-post a bit, and moved Hippocampus' original summary down. If the HotA crew has anything extra to add or errors to amend, just let me know.

The first build contains a new town (including new hero specializations, a new war machine, etc), a small campaign, new graphics for a couple of old units, new movement arrows on the adventure map and additional graphics for some original water objects.

This release is a kind of compromise between players and developers. HotA makes small steps, especially after Alex-ander left and Entuser lowered his activity, and this is the first possibility to show something 99% done. Not HotA itself, but a significant part of it. This is the first possibility to share with players anything "executable" without being ashamed.

Many of the features discussed are already abandoned or denied, but there's more left. And now we have more confidence that one day we'll see a complete HotA. But today we have only things I mentioned above. Still not bad.
