Yes it's possible, quoting Sav from 2015 (link) (I wonder how many threads I have to post this to ):

You need to download Gray Face map editor patch adapted to HotA editor: https://yadi.sk/d/JbbyEUFLdv4hq
Put it in HotA folder and run h3hota_maped.exe with command line key "/p:gf_me_patch.dll". Some of functionality of Gray Face patch will be available (including copying parts of map).

It will give you the option to import/export minimap pictures and copy/paste parts of the map itself (even between multiple maps, using multiple map editor instances).

Awesome, can you please explain to me how do I run something with command line key ?

EDIT: Ok, I made it, sorry to bother you. And thanks a lot.

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.


People are always complaining about these skills, they are worthless: Learning, Sorcery, Mysticism, First Aid, Eagle eye.

It doesn't need "expert wisdom" to customize your game, you only have to change some numbers with HEX editor.

I made myself learning to give +10%, +20%, +30% extra exp. instead of +5, +10, +15. Sorcery also gives +10%, +20%, +30% to damage instead of +5%, +10% +15%. And also made Mysticism to add +3, +5, +10 spell points daily instead of +1, +2, +3.

The only skills that remained snow are Eagle eye and First aid. First aid is really useless, unless it gives the First aid tent a resurrection ability.

First Aid can be improved by making the tent heal more and giving it more HP.
Eagle Eye can be improved by increasing the chance of it working or better yet downloading "New Eagle Eye" plug-in for HD mod.

Where can one find such plugins ? The only one I've found and used with HD is the hw rules plugin.


//Thank you

You can find it here: http://heroescommunity.com/viewthread.php3?TID=42152&pagenumber=21
Look for one of AlexSPL posts, there is a download link in one of them.
I love the new Eagle Eye, you can read my experiences with Tiva and Nimbus as main hero on the same page.

What about you stop asking in all threads what was already clearly answered?

Hota representatives, unlike ALL other modders, are opposed to their material being used elsewhere. Igrik already spent weeks to port their town to Era -nothing more, nothing less, just replace the conflux, then when it was completed he had the elegance of asking permission for release then was red lighted with a sneering attitude doubled by some gobbledygook speech about "purity" and "hota can't be handled in a blink of an eye". You precisely posted the quoted answer so why asking again and again?

Maybe he can change his mind xD

... or make deal
or reach mutual agreement
or compromise.

I need to try Haspid specialty and Nix specialty, but I cant play outside Era.

so I have to try and keeping bugging him until he is convinced

also they were asked 10 years ago or something maybe he forgot all about the issue and see no further reason not to combine? if he still exist in HC I hope :S

Edit: also @why the other thread, becuz I read somewhere that there should be the suggestions and only there so I asked there when I found it.

Edit: do you have better plan?

Everyone who is able to read assembly/hex stuff, is invited to create new plugins and to help others modding thread. Creating the plugins is very easy and explained well by RoseKavalier and AlexSpl in this thread:

New rebalance patch coming out soon?

Hi,

I was wondering if there is some ETA about a new patch coming out, that focuses on balance changes? I pretty much like to hear something that addresses Conflux and the Pixi upgrade (having mage guild and university to upgrade 1st level unit it's too much - maybe this issue fixes very aggressive rush strategies but it is really ugly fix - i really hope the team tries and fix Conflux)

Hoping will be sooner than later?

(and THANK you for this AMAZING expansion - first time posting here)

See the modding thread about hota (linked above your post). You can ask someone who is able to mod, to create a HD plugin for conflux.

1st of all, HoTA mod. is no longer as fussy as mentioned in the very first post.

The installer of the mod. installs correctly to the proper game folder of Heroes 3 Complete.

And, does so without having the original complete edition in a totally clean installation status.

The game can, now, be modded with W.o.G, re-modded with the H.o.t.A. and, once the HD+ mod. is added to the whole thing, all you have to do is: Making sure that all the .exe main files have been HD rendered fully operative.

So, from here, send a launcher icon for each of these HD rendered .exe main game files to the Desktop window of Windows X(10 version 1703 is highly recommended) and, watch the magic happen when you chose any of these icons that auto. sets which kind of HoMM3 complete's mod. you just chose and launched.

Therefore, from now on, enjoy the high diversification of HoMM3 game's mods.

At this rate I assume they're aiming for a traditional New Years release.

I guess the same. I also guess that new HD mod characteristics have caused some delay too in programming work, both because it would need some compatibility work and because baratorch work in HD mod woud mean less baratorch work in HOTA. So now that online lobby is working, I guess/hope that HOTA development will speed up.

Just, I think it would be good hearing something from HOTA team about development status, planning dates... Even if not exact dates or not secure dates. I think most of people wont complain if plans changes or if new delays happens, we understand that and as a non comercial project we have no right to complain, but I want to suggest more communication with HOTA players about that.

I guess that coding isn't the mainproblem here, at least if the complexity of the task isn't that enormous. As an example Nik once said that adding new factions would be a horror coz of the grinding of hardcode. But I personally dunno how complex the new map generating system is. But my assumption would be it isn'T that super hard to code since a few variables are just needed for "Jebus Cross" maps. My personal guess would be the lack of 3D artists or problems with the source of the game.

I like new town in Horn of the Abyss, but I don't like the gun for a creature in this town

We should not have gun in Might and magic world, for Horn of the Abyss

But creatures with gun can be at other MOD
