I didn't end up getting the steam version because it wasn't compatible.

So, the default folder didn't exist, so I created a folder and put the game in that folder. So the folder wasn't empty, but it Still wouldn't work.

Thank you so much for your patience! Been coming back to this game very couple years for 20 years, and would love an updated experience.

I like almost everything about new town. Wastelands looks good. Most of new hero portraits looks great. Some elements of town screen and Factory's dwellings on map needs improvement though. I'm quite sure that it will look better on premire. I would also like to know more details about plot and history of new city.


This is map of the world in Heroes 3. Will Hota Crew post updated version of the world map? A lot has changed - New terrain appeared, Cove is now in the game, Factory will join soon. I would like to know where these faction are placed on the continent.

Cove is not on the continent of Antagarich.

Cove hails from the Regnan Archipelago which is to the west of Antagarich. Shown in the picture below.


As for Factory, I don't know where it is located.

According to this map, northern regions in Jadame look like the wasteland terrain.

That scorched yellow wasteland in Heroes 2 was the original rough terrain and belonged to the barbarians.

Some people are saying that Factory is found in Eeofol now that Inferno has left it, and the wasteland terrain is what is left of the Halflings homeland. Which is further supported by the presence of Halflings in the Factory line up.

That may be the Ironsand Desert you are referring to, which unlike much of Jadame on that map actually is canon. But the absence of trolls from the lineup is a strike against Ironsand being Factory's home, given that's the established natives.

Wasteland was associated with the Wizards in Heroes 2.

Well, it is a theory. It does mean the Factory can't emerge as a faction until after Armageddon's Blade, which could be a limiting factor in the campaigns.

Ah very true. Perhaps they are located on the island that is northeast of Nighon

why isnt HotA using VCMI in order to add their custom features easier? Given the dedication and skill of these guys, I'd actually want them to make their own game now.

Shortly, VCMI doesn't provide enough modding capabilities for HotA-scale project. It is barely impossible that some modding platform should meet our needs. The only real option is fork, but a huge (if not impossible) rework is still needed in this case to make everything look and work like in original Heroes 3 + current HotA version. This work doesn't seem interesting and relevant.
