Bless you people for keeping alive and active this oldtimer with your work. I stop playing HOMM-3, when i found my favourite in the 5th version of the game. Nowdays i'm enjoying the 5.5 mod, but not for long as i see. HOMM-5 maps are no longer made and i'm alreary played all my oldies.
This is the part that i'm jealous about HOMM-3 and HOTA mod. I see almost every week, some new maps from users.
Bravo guys.

Just another turn and i'm done...

You know what they say, if you can't beat them, join them.

One thing I really love Hota now is the new template editor. If you are willing to spend some time, you can make really balanced templates (or templates that really favor AI.) This way you will never run out of maps you enjoy playing. So maybe you should take a fresh look at HOMM3 + Hota?

Speaking of which i've made an 8-player template for both single and PvP mode. Would love to get some feedback on that.

First off, Hota is amazing and I love it.
Only really had small issues until now.

I was playing The map "devil in the details" and have been playing for like 2 weeks (its a gigantic map) and my friend was loading autosave because he had left a town empty for the computer, but when he tried to load the file all saves related to the game (except one from very near the beginning) had disappeared. I closed and opened ect. but they were gone. I checked the save folder and they are there. I found them in game and for some reason they changed from multiplayer to single player. Does anyone know a way to change it back/ stop it from happening again?



I have the same problem; saved multiplayer game files are visible in windows folder or when trying to load single player saves. Not in the multiplayer option.. Definitely has something to do with either HotA or HD-launcher as they both have been updated lately...

I have to give my thumbs up to HOTA. I was sceptical at first, but everything seems to fit in place nicely. There's a lot of thoughtful polish and the new town kicks rears. I like the bigger maps, too. Some quality of life improvements. I don't think HoMM3 needs much more. Once the useless skills are buffed/reworked, I don't have many complaints about HoMM3 gameplay at all.

Has anyone ever won Broken compass on 200% difficulty? It seems to me that the boost for computer players is just too big.

I did. As Necro in the underground I believe. Pretty good spot to have your main town(s).

No solutions to this so far?

Is this map suited for a Human vs AI games?
If yes then it would be a pleasure to provide some feedback.

Cheers

https://www.dropbox.com/s/1ciu0uyy8o53kqo/rmg.txt?dl=0
Brief description: XL+U - G+U ; Best for 1-4 human players and on H+U; 42 zones with several treasuries ( one is super treasure); 3 different pathes from biom which with some obstacles lead you to: 1. super treasure 2. lots of creature banks and utopias 3. Opponent.
Instruction: Create a new folder in HotA_RMGTemplates folder and add this rmg.txt file to there. Since i couldnt come up with an original name i leave it to you professionals
p.s. Before playing it would be better to check file with template editor to have a clue about map and no,not even knowing everything about template will make you win,only skill can help you out and maybe a bit of luck

Guys, could you please recommend some great hota maps (XL and above) meant for player vs. AI (or 2 players allied vs. AI) ? Since hota only has a handful of those bundled (XL+, that is).

Hi... I create one for the french version of HotA.
The name of the map is "le roi des morts" (the king of the deads), but the language is french, with many texts. It's a very complex map.
The french version will be ready in few days.

I really enjoy making random maps with the new template editor and playing 2v6 co-op. I found that banning bad secondary skills and limiting spawns of + stats hero upgrades (the AI is bad at getting a lot of them) helps the AI a lot. Its still easy, but you can give the AI more castles/resources easily.

Also no shackles + mass resurrect and limit townportal usage as additional rules.

also another question:

are you planning to add more creature banks like the pirate cavern, so someday every faction has equivalent to wyvern nest/wolf raider picket /griffin convervartory? Would be amazing.

What technically Beatrice's specialty means? She has scouting bonus, but - for example - basic scouting allows hero to see 1 square further into the shroud. So specialty gives 5% per level. In this case 1 square + 5% means 1.05 square further into the shroud?

if on 20 lvl you still have basic Scouting, you will see 2 squares into the shroud
