Does this game support sim play for several players yet?


Yes. With HD mod.


Okey, because I read somewhere that it was just for two players. But that's fixed?

More than two players has been supported for a good amount of time now. It might possibly not be as stable as with just two players yet, I suppose, but I've seen people play 1v1v1 and 2v2 with HotA and HD mod. You can even test this yourself on the same PC just by running multiple instances of HotA.

wow that's really unbelievable good piece of work mates, seamless recreation and awesome initiative, one really has to look very very hard to tell the difference between the old and the new! lol

btw I agree it would be cool to also have the Fortress ones for the sake of user maps, I am sure there are male Witches and female Beastmasters in the Tatalia even if we do not see any lol

Breastmasters will always be male


lol I'd say you've definitely cut to the chase on that one hippox89 mate lol

@verriker

Oops I blame fred79 for the mistake

On a serious note, I haven't thought about how the map editor allows for creating custom heroes. It's a good point

@DrSlash
You made really cool piece of work. In my opinion best models are :
-might male tower
-vampire lord on horse

However I hope that in future updates you will focus on things that have more impact to the gameplay like new units.

@ShEv441 Thank you, I'm glad you like them  Just be patient, it's just one of the additions of the new version, and probably not even the biggest!  New hero models were my own initiative, so they didn't distract the rest of the team from their work on other content.  Just stay tuned, there is more exciting stuff coming!

The witches adventure model looks like a toad, so I'm sure you guys could improve it if you wanted. Or you could make a sexy witch like Adrienne.
About adding 2 more models for Fortress, I don't really see the point as long as all beastmasters are male and all witches are female. I suppose there could be female beastmasters, male witches on the other hand sounds weird and witches should only be female imo.

As phoenix4ever said,  there is not much point in adding models for female beastmasters and male witches (witchers?), because you'll never actually see these models apart from a couple of user-made maps.  That might frustrate some players, because they'll feel like they're missing out on these models.  Still, the team has a good idea of what to do with Fortress heroes to add some variety to their models, but it's content for another version

true mate but also bear in mind only one Female Warlock in the whole of Planet Enroth, so basically Sephinroth gets her own model which is already a bit far fetched no, plus didn't you hear of Spazz Maticus the Witch King (OK fair enough different game but hey still a Male Witch in that universe) lol

actually mates not to get atrociously greedy but just saying wouldn't it be a laugh to have models for the special campaign heroes as well like Catherine and Roland and pals, ridiculous amount of work ofc but fun to spitball anyway (did you know they were actually planning that for Gem the Sorceress in SoD but ran out of time) lol

Thats a fine piece of art...

Only one little thing I personally miss: Genies from "Tower" Town aren't displayed as heroes. But the alternatives are damn fine too (Sorceress and Alchemist). A Genie on a carpet instead of a horse would also be damn funny. But that's a lot of work.

As for female Beastmasters "Borghild" is quite a female name for a Beastmaster, since it means "borg" (protection) and "hild" (battle).

@verriker Yes, this is also in plans for future releases, although it's not a priority right now, so we can't promise anything as of yet.

This sounds interesting! I wonder where this information came from and whether there is any confirmation of it.

wow that's really awesome man, I will be very eager to see that feature if and when it comes lol

DrSlash said:

it's in one of the New Beginning maps (I forget which one), there's a dummied out event where she talks about Enroth Sorcerers and Sorceresses dying their hair black with magic and the title of the event has a note like "only use this event if Gem gets her horse" lol

btw I believe there is a hidden variable in the game defining each Hero's Race (like Gnoll, Human, Elf, Genie or whatever) so that could be supported I suppose if going all out with the models lol
