No, I was looking for the interface def, 44x44 size, as regular artifact.def from vanilla. Can't find those.

Edit: found them as pcx, from ArtIm141.pcx and up. Definitely not the same pattern as vanilla but good to know.

I bought the COMPLETE edition @ GoG and just played my 1st scenario with the HD mod – but the interface has “issues”.

I came across info about Horn of the Abyss. It appears your mod fixes the UI – but I really want to play the original campaigns before enjoying your mod.

Is there a way I can have your UI improvements in the original campaigns?

I’m especially excited about adding “current spell duration” and the “possible number of killed creatures” info in combat. Also, I’d like to add your “enhanced hero route” and all of the “dynamically calculated spell effect” summaries. Last (but not least), I’d like those estimated numeric army values, and the new hero exchange button.

So… could you edit a simple “UI improvements mod” for us newbies?

I guess HotA is working like other fans mod. If mapmakers in team will have free time, good stories and ideas - they will include new campaigns in next patches. For now, every hota campaigs is 'complete' - each od them tells independent stories, so you can play them withour worries.

We will go another obvious way there). We will add original campaigns to HotA someday. That way you will be able to enjoy them with all of HotA features

In that case I'll switch to your scenarios while I'm just learning - and wait to play the campaigns.

Just so you know - it won't take me that long to learn

Are you planning on adding any new heroes? How about a new Planeswalker, an Air Elemental instead of Thunar for example? Or how about a new female Overlord with Medusa speciality?
Or are you changing any of the old heroes? (I gave Melodia Air Shield speciality, that's a lot better than Luck AND Fortune.)
I think you should double the Learning skill generally and give Kinkeria another skill and speciality, Learning should not only be acceptable for one hero, besides Merist already has Wisdom and Learning.

Is it possible to make Learning into the enlightenment skill from H5? That would certainly be a huge improvement. This way it goes from being arguably the worst the worst skill in the game to being at least as good as, say, water magic. It would help magic heroes scale better in longer games too.

Why do ppl play hota with HW patch ? Isnt hota supposed to be balanced? I see so many players using it, i tried to dl it from the link inside the multiplayer lobby but its not working. Isnt it better to change the game a bit ( nerf diplo etc) and remove that patch ?

From what I know HW_Patch was created for H3 Complete. It's just working on HotA. HotA balanced a lot of things. People use HW_Rules to play 200% with starting ore and gold for more strategies. For me 160% has too many resources.

I dont know HotA Crew state about that but I think many people playing h3 like to use diplomacy, Cloak of the Undead King and they can choose to play with it or not.

Personally I hope Hw_Rules will get option to remove dwellings and maybe remove duplication of same town in one zone for tournaments.

HW patch was a standard requirement for SoD/Complete competetive matches for a long time, HotA removes most of what it is needed for, but not everything yet. It also provides the possibility to flip a coin in chat, barter before the game and play mirror templates. In time, as we introduce more permanent fixes for DD / CotUK and Diplo and integrate features like bartering and mirror templates into the core game - the patch won't be needed.

Right now the team is busy with all the new nuances and responsibilities that beta-release of online lobby has brought. But the progress on the  release still creeps up - slowly, but surely.

Thanks för the info! I believe the newest HD-mod update had "compatibility with future HotA-updates" as one of its new features. I'm not sure what this means exactly, but it does spark hope for the forthcoming update to arrive sooner than later. Just an observation.
