H3 Gigamight Resize Mod - play with realistic proportions!

Heroes 3 Gigamight Resize Mod revamps the size of all the creatures and heroes in the battlefield, making them look more proportional.

It's the way you should have played Heroes 3 from the beginning - not imagining goblins being smaller than orcs, or wolfs being smaller than horses, but actually seeing it.

This mod does not change any statistic values, does not compromise your game in any way, and will not make your game crash!  

Even though i have revamped all the creatures, i could not make them all look proportional, meaning that the biggest creatures do not make their full mythic size a reality.

The mod has been made on the eve of the new year, and Cepheus promised to present this mod in the news, yet nothing happened.

It's been a year around, so i wanted to remind of the existence of this mod.

Perhaps anybody is interested working together and making a resize modification for Wake Of Gods? Looks like my GMR mod does not get enough "views in the world" - though in my opinion making the units look proportional should have been one of the essential all time Heroes 3 mods.

I can not promote this all by myself without your help!
If you know any sites hosting heroes 3 mods, please inform about this or add this mod in the list!

Artas, I will convert your mod to Era, thus allowing large accessibility, but I get no link available, all dead including gamefront. Please upload it to wikisend if you can (7 days link), I will get it asap.

Round table has a link (21 Mb) but the dead ones show 60Mb+. Not sure which is the right one.

I need the modified H3sprite.lod to make Era mod + a read me file about what you changed, why, etc. And of course, if you can modify the battle field hero banner then would be perfect. Just make it twice longer, right now the flag is floating.

Good point. Rocs were the birds in Sidbad the Sailor tales. They were known to carry elephants to their nests to feed their young.

I wonder what the soundtracks in the video are.

The first two are from 1492 and The Fellowship.

The last one is from Blade Runner.

I to think some of the creatures should be larger.

The Rocs should be at least as large as the Phoenixes. May be slightly larger.

The Angels and Devils should be larger. Not as large as Dragons or Giants, but somewhere between this size and Giant size.

The others are quite o.k.

The celestialheavens link is the newest:

Kalah updated the mod with the latest HD mod recently.

MODDB and gamefront links are live too.

I'll check out the flag banner, see what i can do.

The Roc has 60 HP, it does not make sense in my mod for it to be as big as dragons, even though according to mythology it was truly gigantic.

On the other hand, devils and angels get their strength not from their size, but from their supernatural status, thus it does not make sense for them to be bigger.

If you remember, in the Heroes 4 opening the angel was human size, so no - the are correct sized and will not be edited further! I actually already made them bigger than humans.

Attempting to apply this mod to the GOG version of H3 in WinXP yields: "Wrong folder selected!"
Thoughts?

When you begin installation you see this:



You must install the mod into the root folder of Heroes 3, not program files.

If you don't want any trouble with installation, just download the mod from strategyinformer.com or moddb.com - just extract the mod to desktop and all you will have to do is replace a single h3sprite file manually in the Hereos 3 data folder. There is a text file included.

Only one download link really works for me and that gives you a rar file, when you extract, it's an exe file, so you cant modify it for Era or pick out the sprite file.

Sal, what happened to your plan to make an Era mod of this?

Well, I understand Artas purpose, but I am finally not so much interested, because the technical realization is messy. Heroes flags are floating up to nowhere, then double hexed low level creatures now are one hex + one phantom hex, which confuses the battle actions. If someone enjoys playing with, up to him to convert.

I don't have them, he released only as exe, I had to install on a cloned H3. To get them, you must search the lods then extract each def manually, a waste of time.

Hmmm... what a pity. It's a good idea, I like what I see in the screenshots. Too bad it is executed poorly, hope someone gets it right someday.
