I'm curious, what is the origin for haspids, nix and ayssids? They are based on some existing myth right?

Well, here is something I found on reddit about Haspids reddit - What is a Haspid?. Nix may have drawn inspiration from the Nix in Germanic mythology. The Stormbird/Ayssid could originate from the Rain Bird from Native American legends. But other than that, there isn't any real world equivalent to them.

So that's it? Sea serpent to Russian viper? Nix makes sense at least. And I am familiar with the thunderbird origins but have not come across ayssid before.

Slavic Aspid was an evil flying snake, serving Chernobog (Black God).
Actually it lived in mountains.

That's because there is no myth or legend that it comes from. You google Ayssid the first result is HoMM3 wiki. It's a made up name. 100% original.

I don't think the HotA team said they were going to release any new info these past few months or in the next few.

Aww and I have already finished the campaigns. The waiting game it is then.

Thanks P4R4D0X0N. It would seem that the team first decided on the units they wanted and then on their names.

source - official russian thread for HotA news

Also, if I understand correctly, landscape will be released earlier than town - i.e. this summer.

Hey guys.

I'm having trouble with the game.
I got Heroes 3 complete and it works fine, the HD mod works fine ontop of Heroes3 complete but HotAHD doesn't work at all.

What happens is simply this:

Click on the icon.
Nothing.
CTRL+ALT+DEL shows that 2-3 processes of something called Com Surrogate are started, but they aren't taking up much space or using up much memory and no processing power.


Nothing else ever happens.


edit: Actually strike that.
If I go into the file path and click on HotA it works.
It is the HotAHD shortcut that doesn't.
Also the game won't start through the HoMM3 HD  launcher. Been messing with the settings nothing seems to help


edit2: ok screw me updating the launcher worked  Everything good, false alarm ppl, false alarm.

The update with the new terrain will most likely slide from summer to early autumn. However, later this month, an article with new development details will be released, so stay tuned.

Same goes for "Fangarm"... it's more or less the "sucker" of a kraken tentacle in german.
