Those oil ponds were already present in HoMM2 while "black magma" or "dragonblood elixir" sound like taken from a B movie.

Are you certain they were meant to be oil ponds? Looking at them, tar pits seem at least as plausible as what they were meant to be.

Why tonight?

Last weekday of August, perhaps?

Well, you may call it tar, bitumen, petroleum, asphalt.

To all who anticipate an official HotA announcement this weekend, it was in July when Docent Picolan talked about "later this month".

Rewatching the Factory town screen trailer video it occured to me that the townscreen is rendered at a resolution higher than needed for HoMM3.

Are the HotA crew working on their own HD refurbishment? That would be their most awesome contribution but it's highly unlikely they are going to remake all graphical assets.

animation [...] in the original, double resolution


I would interpret that as they work on higher resolution in some cases, here: townscreen. Why? Beacause they can. But we wont get that just yet.

Maybe, I remember DP saying he wasn't exactly overwhelmed by the original Stronhold townscreen. The Conflux one definitively has some rough edges either.

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.


Well, technically, in North America, autumn traditionally starts on September 21 and ends on December 21, so we still have a few weeks ahead of us.

Well, I did it for the sake of simplicity; in North America it has an official date. However, I must admit I do not know whether the same happens in Denmark or Russia.

The meteorological autumn usually starts on september 1st, while the astronomical autumn starts on september 21st. It's a matter of preference which system is adhered, I guess.

Technically, in North American meteorological autumn doesn't even start until the end of September. We are still capable of having 30į C temperatures well into the end of September/early October.

With the newest update, every time I try to play a game on impossible, I start out with a bunch of resources and gold... anyone else having this issue?

You probably have "tournament rules" enabled.

Who said you need to wait for something in September?
Big things go out for the new year usually.
This is a good tradition.

Ahhh!! Thank you so much! This solved the problem but I think the newest update has it backwards, the check mark seems to turn off TR, whereas the circle with a cross through it turns it on
