The Market of Time went through several revisions before we scrapped it.
I believe it was going to be a marketplace that appeared and disappeared
on the map according to a schedule.

sav and i both pointed out that the market of time was part of the original game files, and not wog. it's in the .lod in homm3 complete initially, i know that. found that out not that long ago, actually.

Yes I know that, what I meant was the actual properties of the object, it did'nt seem to have any in ROE but it did in WOG, so where did the idea that it should erase skills actually come from?

I suggest the market of time is 9th or 10th skill with 4 random skills. Do you realize? Same as University, but market of time admits 9th or 10th. If you already have the skill. You will not get 9th skill. The benefit is to AI

Can anyone explain what the market of time is?

Is it to trade skills for EXP? It's confusing what you guys are saying i can't figure out what that is lol but everyone seems to understand each other.

George Ruof, senior programmer at New World Computing, said that it went through several revisions before being scrapped. He believes it was going to be a marketplace that appeared and disappeared on the map according to a schedule. I am unaware of any non-third-party sources that describe exactly what the marketplace sold throughout its several revisions.

In WOG it is used to make heroes able to forget secondary skills, so they can leanr other ones.

There are already several map objects, that are disabled by default, but if map/template-creators want them, they can enable them on their maps. So why not do the same for market of time?

I'd rather just have an option somewhere to turn on the ability to reject skills on level up, but HotA crew has the right to give direction to the project as they see fit. It's their project and I don't blame them for having a distinct vision as to what they believe HotA should, and shouldn't be.

Can anyone play the map "Barren Lands" for a mere week with any color except green? It seems to me that green AI never tries to conquer his town and is abandoned within the first week every time I play it.

Is it just for me or does it happen to everyone?

Beatrice is a replacement for Sylvia (specialty navigation) for maps without water. In random maps, Beatrice will be available only if water content is set to "none". This is not specific to v1.5.

There are more rejected original files in the lods. For example:

There are also many abandonned sounds and addidtional Fortress building in townscreen.

Hey, sorry if it's kinda offtopic but I gotta ask since it's the first time I see this brought up and I can't really find anything about it anywhere. Where can I find those other objects in the picture?
I know in which map I can find Martke of Time but that's about it.

I remember seeing this in one of the promo screenshots for an earlier HotA version. What was it supposed to be and why was it not included?
