Hi guys,

I am wondering where I can find the text file for HoTa creature statistics so I can edit them.

I found the one for original H3 creatures but once I save it nothing happens in the actual game because it doesn't seem to be the correct one (it's the original H3 one not the HoTa one)

Thanks!

Like was mentioned many times ago - hota txt files with statistics are located in hota.lod file. But must use a tool to decipher them.

Thanks,

I haven't been on this forum in 2 years and was hoping for a quicker response by just writing here, cheers for the help

Edit: I just checked, I used MMarchive to access the files but cannot seem to find it? Is is definitely a txt file? Are you are what the name should be? The original crtraits is not there.

It's not HotA.lod, but HotA.dat and it's not a text file it's a file that needs to be edited with a Hex Editor.
Refer to the very active thread "How to edit HotA", to hear me ask a lot of stupid questions and get help from some very wise members.
I just nerfed Cove myself, as I found it way too strong.

By the way any modification done on creatures will stay the same in online games. What i mean is don't change anything if you don't wanna cheat..

I'm not planning to play online just feel like the lvl 6 creature in Cove is overpowered and Wyvern Monarch needs a boost. I only play single player.

I think Cove is unbalanced. It's a little expensive but easy to build and get creatures. That's why I play it a lot than Fortress.

I hope they will fix templates or create HotA's new templates. Because 90% of templates are snow or this map creator? Strange things happens all the time like not available areas. One player has 5% of map and blocked by strange units and next to is player who has 40% of map and easy units on map.
I played like that today and lost vs my cousine who cant play h3.

If no monster appears on roads except for zone guards the number of restarts will decrease drastically. And i believe it is not hard to code it since the team managed to fix fly/DD exploit.

So where or when is the 1621:10060 fix going to happen for users that get timedout, a la reconnecting to server and game is not responding? DUE to the updates that broke the online for those users.

Has anyone ever had an autosave-file get corrupted and crash each time you try to load it? This is really weird and has never happened before. I probably have to restart the whole game.

I don't play campaign but with multi or singleplayer random maps I don't have any problems.

Hello! Why is the Conflux so bad and expensive in this expansion? I mean, seriously, one Magic Elem costs 1200 gold, exactly as much as one Champion, which is almost twice more powerful. Also, I think Phoenix cost 3000 gold is too expensive, considering the fact that you need 30000 gold to build and upgrade them, plus 5000 for the Vault of Ashes. This makes the Conflux almost too expensive to play.

Totally agreed. Conflux is now probably the least chosen faction in the game. I hope they'll at least replace magic university with mage guild 1 as the requirement for having sprites. Otherwise it will be unplayable on 160/200 % difficulty.

I agree with both. Probably the best choice would be simply remove Conflux from HotA MP and stop the mess. It doesn't have any vital heroes (except maybe Luna) and it has one too many perks (Magic University, Artifacts Merchant, annoying grail, fastest creature and fastest level 1 creature, many immunities, etc...) to ever be balanced properly.
Mage guild of level 1 as requirement for sprites is useless, you need it to build all other dwellings so it represents only one day delay, OTOH Magic University is too costly for SP.

I am surprised they didn't ask the grail before upgrading magic lantern.

Honestly they should remove the Magic University requirement and stay to how it was. Sprites are only level 1 creatures with 3 hp and are killed very easily by spells. As it is now Sprites are usually one of the last creatures to get upgraded at Conflux, because of that expensive Magic University.
Pit Lords in Inferno should go back to require Mage Guild level 2 however.

Most likely the new requirements are because early MP battles using sprites took hours and allowed a loophole in the hero level up.
