As Docent Picolan mentioned, we're talking about months, not days.

I think, it's about a new version (like 2.0), not the update of current one.

It's about English version, I suppose. This time is composed of time for making an update and time for translation.

I get the impression that it's complicated on a technical level? Are the texts in hard-code? If it's a matter of finding someone to help edit main menu graphics and things, that's no obstacle - I can put out an alert for help.

Ah, I forget about campaign and so minimized complexion of the task. Yes, with campaign it may take monthes, not weeks

i don t think the next version that will be released will be v2.0 since this is still a beta and as the a member of the hota crew mentioned,this more a cove release that a full hota one so the next version i think that will be a full 1.0.Still i hope that the town developed for the 2.0 version will be Kronverk as it was planned and it looks gorgeous if you ask me or at least Cathedral also one of my favourites(that i would LIKE ALOT the have it in v3.0 as the initial plan).When the team will decide what town they will develop for 2.0 hope they will announce it to us too .Congratulations again for the whole crew

I know I'm just an observer here, but I think stable and fully functional (as in containing all creator's intended stuff) would be more welcome than forcing another town.

The Cove content itself looks gorgeous so far. HotA proves to be classical add-on (as advertised) so i hope it doesn't go WoG way where it was more of a quantity of options over quality. WoG always looked like a MoD from day 1, while HotA really looks like an official expansion would. No messy stuff nor personal preferences - everything fits in. (only issue might be some old creatures changed but that is really minor)

On a side-note, it would be nice to at least get the translation for common stuff (stuff that repeats itself in any scenario) - creature names, abilities, hero names and abilities and building names. I don't think campaign translation is as important at this point. Heck even the .txt file with descriptions in english would help

Once again, kudos to immense work done. I can't express how amazing it looks and plays so far.

I fully agree.

i really don t think what i quoted above,wog is the thing that made h3 survive until today and the thing that made me play h3 a lot;it's maybe the best unofficial mod/patch/expansion created for a game;unit now? as hota seriuosly challenges that status

WoG was indeed a great addition but it also split the community. Half the people worshiped it, half still prefers playing SoD/Complete.
I hope HotA stays more conservative than that. So far it accomplishes it 10/10.

I'm one of those that didn't like WoG.
It had tons of features yes, but they didn't seem necessary to me for Heroes 3. It was also buggy, it used to crash alot when I was playing it.
I welcome HOTA on the other hand with open hands because it adds things which fit into Heroes 3, such as different towns, units and other objects, not changing the game completely.

They already have unique abilities. And yes, a WoG compatible version is on its way (as far as I've understood).

test several days after the release, I must say is excellent
feels and breathes like an old unreleased expansion by 3D0, work is incredible, I hope they contact people from bastion to include that Egyptian city.

I install on a clean version of h3complete, anyone know if I can install it on wog 3.58f?


Sorry for my english!

HoTA is not compatible with WoG, it's pure SoD expansion.
