Chill

10 years of free work! Who are YOU to complain if they do not keep the dates?

It is better to release the patch with everything finished. Music, campaign and other fixes. This way the release with pack a punch that might gain a larger attraction.

IMHO, this is why we're seeing a lot of entitled posts/impatience surrounding factory's release. If they did it that way for Cove, then it MUST be same for Factory, is what they're thinking. WHen the reality is, they DO NOT have to release the town separate, AND whether or not its even possible to do so, is nobody's buisness except that of the HotA team.

The fact that they did release the cove town separate should be a good indicator that they would release Factory if it were ready, but trolls are never very smart. If they were, they'd be able to see how the death of the project's founder + a global pandamic would create a few set backs on something like a mod for an old computer game that ran on windows 98.  


But all that is sometimes too hard on the troll's egos, and that their opinion does not matter, so they complain here about it. Everybody waits for things in their own way I suppose, lol.

Nobody said they are going to add the full campaign (unless I've missed one of their messages?).

They are probably going to do exactly as they did with Cove: add a single campaign along with the release of the town and then they will release more campaigns in the following versions.

Unfortunately, we all know that when a community starts getting big, it also gets toxic. Let the HotA team mind their own business. It's their mod and they can do whatever they want. And, to be fair, they have done a great job so far and I completely trust them that the 1.7 release will be just as great, if not better.

Instead of commenting about what the HotA team should do, let them do their thing and maybe start making your own mod the exact way you want it to be. After you see how hard it is, maybe you will stop trolling.

I swear to bleeping God(choose which one for yourselves), I get hit square in the jaw by the collective autism that has grown and bloated in this thread every time I click on it.

All I want to see is news updates, not your collective sperging over trivial crap.

new content will be released when it is ready. Looks like this concept is too hard to process for some.

I don't really care about the campaign in a sense that I would enjoy playing through it, but I can also easily do without it altogether. I'm more interested in the new town and whatever else gameplay changes are to come with it.

HoMM3 has never been big on campaigns or story. I played the game since 1999 and I only managed to complete the campaigns in 2020. And the campaigns or the story aren't the game's strong points.

It was the Map Editor and Random Map Generation. These are the things that keep HoMM3 and for that matter AoE2 still immensely popular 22 years later.

I just wish in this new patch they rebalance more abilities and spells so they can allow new ways to play the game, not the same thing every time.

It has been said many times by the team that we shouldn't expect anything else than Factory in 1.7 patch. Basically they need everyone in their team to make Factory reality.

Do you mean auto-updating Hota or something? You can download the newest version here. I suggest trying to re-install the game and mod if the problems still occur. Remember to put the whole folder anywhere else than under Program files.

Yeah the auto update, haven't played since 1.5.1 I think and the farthest the auto update from launcher gets me is 1.5.4. Says there are no new updates

You can always update manually. Download the latest installer of version 1.6.1 and use that. Alternatively you can reinstall HoMM3 and then slap HoTA + HD on top, maybe your settings got messed up and that's why you can't update.

In the main directory there is a file called "HotA_settings.ini", inside you have the following settings:

I'd like to see some improvements to Sorcery & a new artifact; for example "Curse of Yaga" helmet or ring..; in case of helmet I'd give it 0attack / 0def / -20 power / +5knowledge; and an effect that allows to cast twice per turn -and if you have sorchery, than (de)buffs will apply to all units of the same type. (for example - you fight neutral army of goblins and dont have expert earth, but since they are all the same type of creature all 7 stacks will be cursed.)
Same applies if you clone your unit (or split stacks of the same unit) and then cast anitmagic (or any other beneficial spell) on either - both will receive the buff.

Bruh this is not the suggestion thread.

Hi people please keep it civil!

I have to admit i am slowly giving up on a release this year but that's ok. Summer is coming soon it'll be time to be outdoors anyways so i can take my eyes off the screens.

Also i remember playing Homm2 with my best friend as kids and his favorite hero was Kastore. I have read that the HotA team was planning on adding him back and i'm really eager to see what he'll be like and what will be his hero specialty.

I hope also that they stick to the Enroth style Cyan and Grey face portrait (which is not only in Homm2 but also in Might and Magic 4 to my knowledge).

It is in Might and Magic 4/5, but used for a different elven player character mage, named Seymour (no Kastore appeared in World of Xeen). Kastore's MM3 portrait had a cyan face and grey hair.

We know that at least in cinematics, the Kastore HotA is bringing back looks like his MM7 incarnation (who can't be the HOMM1-2 Kastore, which might well exist separately given the two Crag Hacks).

Most countries are in Lockdown state, so nope, not this year.

H3thelazy posted progress:

"Current Progress

As of 12 March 2021:

   Wasteland terrain and associated objects are ready and in the game as of 1.6.0.
   All Factory creatures are ready.
   Hero models on the Adventure Map and in battle are ready.
   Hero lineup is not finalized, but there are more than 16 portraits in a releasable state, but still being worked on.
   Paul Romero is currently working on the musical theme of Factory.
   Almost all 3D models of the town screen are finished; there are only a few models that need texturing.
   Factory creature dwellings are not ready (and can only be started once Factory town screen is finalized).
   Factory siege screen is not ready (and can only be started once Factory town screen is finalized).
   The majority of 3D campaign cutscenes are finished or in the final stages of production, with only a few still needing to be made.
   Campaign maps are still in the beginning stages of being made; only 1 (out of 8) map is close to being ready."

doesn't sound so bad to me, but I'd say they will likely need at the very least couple months more.

I estimate Q4 2021 or 2022.

Yeah I love that hes a factory hero. His new portrait is great too. Its The little things, such as bringing back an H2 hero, really go a long way in making HotA feel like an official expansion.

This thread gets more and more rediculous... There is enough other stuff a man can do in his free time, beside hitting F5 in this forum or on HotA mainpage for an update. Let them do their job on the quality Level we're accustomed too.
