As one of those that didn't much like WOG, I am very much looking forward to this being released in english.

I played it in russian, and was completely blown away (both by the mod itself as well as enemies that actually knew what my troops were).

Hey there, I'm new here, but considering my track record, you'll probably all hate me before the month is over.


Anyway, I would like to ask a few questions about some things that aren't quite clear to me:

1. The original post mentioned alot of stuff that was supposed to be in this version, like the Town Keeper, the blog post about the mod also mentions alot of new stuff. Anyone mind telling me what the current version has other than Cove+New models for Orcs and Pikemen?
2. The original and many of the other older posts had alot of screenshots that have since been removed/stopped working, mind reposting them?
3. How good are your translators? Mostly asking this because I fear another Pathologic.
4. How much of the original planned content have ben scrapped? Did you remove the alternative upgrades for old castles? I really liked that idea.

Apart from that, the announcement that this mod finally came out was like the second coming of Christ to me. So thank you many, many times for this.

A campaign, several new objects (water shrines, water teleporters, new decorative objects, 'horn of the abyss shrine' object (it will probably be used in campaign) ).

2. The original and many of the other older posts had alot of screenshots that have since been removed/stopped working, mind reposting them?

very nice!


Seeing all those amazing models by Alex-ander makes it sad that they won't be used much, even though a small portion of his units were released.

They don't?

Man, this is so confusing, didn't the official post say that they are still going to implement Kronwerk and Cathedral? Sometime after they've done the WoG implementation and english version of Cove?

EDIT: well, reading it again, they say that the status of those two towns are uncertain.

Where have you read that they are 'uncertain' to me it looks like the next version will have Crownwork and the version after that one will contain Cathedral.. Am I wrong? Links please for different information

"The mod promised three new factions would be added to H3, with a new one coming in each of the three global versions: the pirate-focused Cove town, the snowy Kronwerk/Crownwork populated by Dwarves and Giants, and the Cathedral, a dark antithesis to the Castle town led by inquisitors. In the spirit of a classic expansion pack, new heroes, artifacts, objects, terrains, spells, gameplay and features were intended for inclusion."

Notice the "promised"

A little further down

"Work is apparently ongoing on version 2.0, and Docent Picolan (project leader) has asserted hopes that the next build will support WoG's ERA engine for scripting. The status of the Crownwork and Cathedral towns is a bit uncertain, but Aleee states that support for the Cove in the map editor is a top priority at least. I quote: "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."

More specifically:

"The status of the Crownwork and Cathedral towns is a bit uncertain"

Uuugh.

Not to start a flamewar or to criticize. But I always found the Forge (that is, the original removed castle) horribly designed. And I didn't like the idea of Sci-Fi in my HoMM, Even if the original M&M series had Sci-Fi elements.
