Wow you can ? I have already translated the mod into Vietnamese but I'm afraid the language will be back to English again after updating the new patch because the HotA.dat file will be replaced.

Yeah, it's nightmare for every localisationed games. Every patch you must make update localisation. But Lod compare tool will help you easily check what files have been changed between HotA 1.4.2 and (furthcoming 1.5.0)

Something Hippox didn't focus on...



*Some other Leprechaun stuff...
*I never saw a Golem crumble like this? Granted the animation is implemented in original files... but I never saw it... death through magic?
*Only really new thing... Sir Mullich reworked.

Thats all so far...


On my wishlist:
*another feature... Magmaelementals are quite weak. Their deathanimation looks like they explode when Stack is eliminated. This could be a Feature aswell. Stack dies -> Fireball/Fireshield like explosion
*The Lich Cloud is greenish, while the projectile is reddish... both green would be better imho.
*This one is also in the assets... Maybe for another Water spell LvL5 or something.... Old "Fear" Spell maybe it affects the whole enemy team from acting by chance (like a present Azure Dragon). (Would better fit to "Earth-Magic" since its a stronger version of "Sorrow" Spell)

I can see, you all like to bring back various objects from Heroes 2.

There are two things in H2, which I personally would appreciate very much:

In H2 (and H4 too) the obelisks contain more fun, because you can dig out different artifacts, not only the grail.

The mystical garden has a Pre-visit and a Post-visit animation. When you steal the 500 gold / 5 gems from the leprechaun, he disappears, and returns only on the following week. It would be awesome, to make this in H3 if it's possible. Maybe make the other weekly visitable buildings (windmill, water wheel, warehouses) being the same.

I like your suggestion!

*I also wish for these HoMM2 artifacts:



Suggestion for these: If used in misc Slot: gain Expert-Level for Fire-, Air-, Water-Magic (Relic) as for Earth: Regrowing Obsidian-Stone (Obsidian was the best Material in MM4-6)

*As for revisitable objects... an optical feedback would be nice if these objects are already visited this week. Mill and Waterwheel stand still, Leprechaun is gone if already visited. As for "Warehouses" the same

hippox89 You have spotted most of it, but still there is a bunch of stuff that hasn't been noticed by wide audience as of yet. Including the one most significant in my opinion.

*New portrait of Vey (I like it very much!) Made by Docent?

This one was originally drawn by our external helper Nosferatu, but it was heavily modified towards H3 style afterwards. Anyway, almost every HotA graphics is made with my participation, either from scratch or by reworking/adaptation.

I wonder if it will included for random maps at some point?

The main use for single-cell prison is supposed to be on fixed maps (has same cellularity as a hero and saving of space is important), but maybe there will be reasons to add it in RMG someday as well.

Quote:
Just one question: does the update also feature one or more new campaigns? If so, how many?


It's not. Campaigns have a chance of appearing in the 1.6, hardly before.

On the last picture Nik posted there also seems to be a Leprechaun in the top right corner, don't know if it's a Mystical Garden for dirt terrain or what it is.
On the third picture where Oris is casting a spell where did the flag go, does it usually disappear like that?
Can't really spot anything else, but there is probably more...
Nice with heroes getting represented by the correct gender on map and in battle btw.

Graphics menu and fonts are available for years. Haven't you heard about MMArchive?  Yeah,  campaign editor is missing,  but you can write a message to hota team, they will send you all txt files,  you translate, send them back and hota team will send you translated campaign. No need to wait. That's why polish translate exist for some time.

Wow you can ? I have already translated the mod into Vietnamese but I'm afraid the language will be back to English again after updating the new patch because the HotA.dat file will be replaced.


Yes, I already have the campaign editor, but I do not yet have the original fonts and drawings to translate the graphic menu into other languages. Also, I need the fonts of the mod with graphic accents (, , , , , ...).

with this great work, I guess the focus is going to be on H3 for a long time --- is it possible to upgrade the AI? Maybe Quantomas would like to help with that? Heroes 5 is interesting but the graphics are so bad, e.g. the underground and snow terrain...the templates even worse because the castles are shown from the beginning. H3 with HOTA team (and the HD mode) is going to stay...  

H6 and H7 are pure garbage, just 2 people are playing, antalayan? and another guy, don't remember his name

@Avatar When you use spells on them, golems and beholders are dying in an alternative way. But this is an old improvement.

There is something strange with the second image. There are two heroes selected during battle. Manfred on an adventure screen has 24 shooting pirates, but on battlefield there are 26 of them. What happened there?

This little anchor on a boat cursor will appear over places we can visit and over treasures we can get, I guess?

It took me a while to just look at this picture and figure out what was different about the magog.
Is there a new restriction to the slow spell maybe? So that it does not affect units on their home territory or something? The magog in the picture obviously was slowed down whilst not having lost any of his speed.
This would be quite a big thing but I believe a very cool one.

if not for the magog itself or the slow spell, the battlefield looks pretty cool and improved as well IIRC
