Looks good, but why did you remove the upgraded version with 4 arms? Liked that version a lot more.

@pekute99

Propably lvl 6, but we will see.

@ Adilmaru & Somi
It is not a sure thing yet. Rakshasa with 4 arms is a fantasy of Ubisoft, and we are not in Ashan with H3. Also I have yet to decide if he will be using swords or different weapons (after all, we already have multi-arm naga with swords in tower)

@ Engwathang
Hard to tell by %, but I still think that we will manage to finish it by the end of this year.

How about a shotel instead of a sword? (for the uninformed: shotel image).

While it is true, that 4 arms are HoMM 5 design, I still think you should go with four arms. It is more unique, and honestly, about Naga as another four armed unit, you can say that orcs can't have 2 arms, because humans have 2.. And for weapons, I would go with whip in one, and that curved sword (like in MMH 7) in another. And I would also steal those blue runes from MMH 7 design of Rakshasa, to differentiate it even more from Naga, and you use that in your advantage, as ability for them to increase their magic resistance!

I want to back this suggestion.

More unique compared to what? In H3 you already have the nagas with multiple arms, on the contrary IMHO I think two arms for this project is a good call.

why not give the orcs four arms instead then though because unique, bit random lol,
I'd actively veer to keep away from adapting anything Ubisoft did with character design in their Heroes of Ashan and Erwin franchise personally, I think it will tend to create bad connotations lol

And I am sure the moderator will agree that, with a 1700 pages "hate Erwan and Ubi" thread in the respective forum, there is no need to bring it here too.

I forgot to ask, what does that "alternative" unit means? Something like what we seen in Heroes 5 or something else? And any plans for additional cities?

Nope, those were alternative upgrades in h5. Think of h4 choices between 2 creatures per tier.

Thanks for suggestion, that may be interesting

Well, i am going to disagree with such statement. While we are talking about fantasy game, 2 arms are usually a standard for humanoid creatures. It doesn't work the other way.

For all towns?

There is a different project for such thing which I am part of. Go here: http://heroescommunity.com/viewthread.php3?TID=41799

Also I won't tolerate such behavior in my topic. Everyone can have an opinion, but you don't have to offend other people if it vary from yours.

@Dj
Yes, our cat world is divided into castes, and rakshasa are on a top of it. While they share some cat features they will have other animations to further differentiate it.

Rakshasa in HoMM 3? Sir, you are reading my mind!
This along with gifs you posted some time ago looks just magnificent. Bravo!

I really like the "Rakshasa" fits perfect! If it was for me I would drop the Wasp (neutral now), replace it with a smaller scorpion version and put this new beauty on lvl6.

Rakasa as alternative creature is good idea
Will be more alternative creatures?
And other question, do you released any playable version or demo of your town?
Graphics look just perfect but I am a little scared that we will never  play with this town.
And second important question:
I heard rumors that you planning to start again from beginning.
Is that true?

We have already dealing with very small resolution, scaling creatures doesn't work this way. It would have to go through reconceptualization phase and be specially planned on level 2, so no.


Quote:

For now I don't have other plans for extra alternative unit. In fact I think that one alternative unit per faction is enough.

Quote:

Sorry, I have no plans on releasing demo version of this town, there might be some closed test for extra people, but nothing for public view.

I still think that we will be able to finish the town later this year.

Quote:

I don't get where did you get this idea from. It is a true that during town development there was many changes, but I don't intend on starting all over again. The only thing which I am planning to start over is town screen, but this goes only for background as I am happy with the current buildings.

Actualy, four-armed (or either any number of arms bigger than 2) rakshasa aren't "ubisoft fantasy", they're just represented like that in hindu myth - sometimes with "only" two arms, sometimes with more. The same go for naga, vanara and various other hindu deities. It have more to do with religiosity than with how the creature "really looks like", the extra arms aren't litteral, just a symbol.
Now... Feline-headed rakshasa are a fantasy of Gary Gygax and Dave Arneson... Mythic rakshasa aren't feline anthopomorphs. Though how people want to portray their own rakshasa is their own decision, can't say they don't look good lion-headed.


Congrats for the whole Project, it looks amazing so far. Love the Lamassu!
