New Grove Town

It's time for some revolution...

Quote:


We won't beat around the bush - it's time for give you effects of our work.
In May 8 2009 the Grove Resurrection Project started. Do you remember resurrecting Forge? It's something like that...
We have returned town based on K1ng and his team's project back to life. I hope he'll be happy that his project finally sees the light of day. We present first Heroes of Might and Magic III new town made by fans!
Town's site is HERE. On this site you'll find Download page, where you can download mod that changes Fortress into Grove. With WoG 3.59 premiere we'll try to add Grove to game as completely new town.
Before installation we recommend to read instruction and recommendations on site.

Warning! This is version BETA of town - it can have some bugs or mistakes. We don't have heroes' biographies and specializations yet though.

New Grove Team


Screens coming soon...

Ah, finally is out

Who is in the grove team? I know Darkloke is still working on, other people worked on? Give us more details please. I had the grove "stills" and I see in this download new things.

The new terrain will be difficult to place within the existent grass hills, but it is only a minor detail.

Fnord script about new heros and grove artefacts is still planned in, or this is the final release?

Great job! I guess the other team who delayed work will now take it softly.

We have made all scripts with our knowledge. There is no Grove artifacts. These we will probably make in future (aswell as campaign and other), we were also planing on making terrain (before making campaign), but we found out that it would took to much time, so we de3cied to focus on town itself first (but in future there will be terrain to).

I tested it! =) I must say im quite impressed.
Only negative thing, which was kind of really annoying actually...
Was that on town screen, when having to drag a unit down to the hero for the first time, some erm message comes up, only once though.
And EVERY time you want to double click on a unit to go to its info or to upgrade it, you have to go through some erm stuff 2 times, which i find somehow annoying :l
Else... Very good work nicely done.

but this error is some bug in one of Grove's building (that enables changing Rampart creatures into Grove ones) so when it happens it may "injure" this building. But we will fix it...

Wait... Wyvern... Ah, it's Treebeard. It's old unit. We've made it from a one *.gif that we've found somewhere...
And lizard... You mean Grove Keeper? Again *.def made from *.gif

Edit.

No man, the lizardman (CPLIZA), not the warrior. The one which change its appearance several times, very good model.

Congrats, it looks great. I like the fact that most of the creatures are handmade, so we'll have two different Groves if the other team finishes their project. Some animations aren't that smooth, but they're still very good. Anyhow if somebody doesn't like them, you can always say you guys were the first who released a new town.

Half of the graphics seem to have been made by k1ng and skywalkermg though? It would be nice to include them in the credits.

I have to admit, when I saw the title, I was like "do these people never stop"... But you guys actually did it. A project has actually been finished. I couldn't believe my eyes till I tried it out.

Sure it's a bit buggy here and there, but this is how it should be done. No waiting, no anticipation, just BAM! A gift from the sky. ^^

Good job folks. I vote we build you guys a statue or something so that other teams would follow your example.

As far as I know, we didn't had any defs from old Grove, so we have made defs by... doing weird experiments with official screenshots (yup, our defs are straight made from screenshots).

I am very interested by having the contact of the guy who build the exe. I explored it with PE explorer but I would need some advices, as it is always a good idea to avoid WoG regular install and automatize it.
