Is it possible to scale down the map objectives. They are too big which makes the maps look like there is nothing on them. If it is possible then that would be great because if they are smaller then there will be space for more of them.

In every other heroes that objectives are as big as the hero and this is giving the feeling (maybe its right..) that there are soooo many things to visit or fight for.

The size has no impact on the density, the RMG chooses a distance between objects and then spreads them evenly over the surface, but if the distance becomes too small it removes too many monster placements, you can observe the effect when comparing experience setting 3 and 4.
4 places more objects, less monsters. Ofc if an area is already plundered by the AI, there are less things to do.

I am preparing PRT 0.3, and wanted to put me agree with you in some terrain changes to match your RMG. Apart from some changes you recommended, such as changing several "ground" and reduce the color / saturation all the "lava", wanted to use the land "conquest" I find you included in the RMG (or was already), themed Silvan, they had to own land (perhaps more flowers and leafy) retexturize'm starting to blur all campaigns for changes in terrain well and remove a small glitch on all maps where green dots were seen because they used "tile1.dds "base. Could try to free some similar textures to the textured usases and my campaign was not noticing anything

Because of the google translation I cannot understand exactly what you are asking.

I can tell RMG can accept new decorative objects, but as far as I know not new terrains. I think most conquest terrains are already used.

I want to retexturize terrains putting me agree with you so you can make better use of them in the RMG, and seize terrains that are not used much in campaigns, I'm retexturing , so you can use them. For example, the land "sand_stone" and "tile1" RMG apply in the field of Silvan, differentiating them from "grass".  You said that "ground" gave you trouble, and wanted to avoid that to happen again.

I have a problem with ARMG. I run HM55_UTILITY.EXE and I sucessfuly generate a map. I save it and I see it's in the Maps folder (I can open it in MapEdtior too) but when I run HOMM55_64.EXE I can't see the map. Is there something I could do wrong?

EDIT:

I'm sorry but I'm very dumb. I haven't checked "Show Random Maps". Sorry for trouble.

I think I understand what you mean, but in MMH55_HDTex.pak I already optimized all terrains for the RMG + maximized the variation in landscapes for every faction.

Great good thought begin designing dwelling 0 Layer 4-7 to include in the future (is it not a priority now) and I read that you thought not include those of TSoD that were disproportionate. Also I noticed that did not maintain the same tiles lock / on, so I thought this would be the problem, and I would like to prepare them so they could include in RMG. I gather that should be the same size so they do not cause errors and wanted to know ... is there some other more appropriate measures? I thought to just squares and rectangles to different there now.
I also wanted to make new "banks creatures" to have all factions, should be 3x3 tiles as current? a greeting

The RMG uses a special hardcoded system for the dwellings which makes it impossible to have seperate dwellings for t4,5,6,7. You should be able to add them in the map editor however.

and can not replace the military post (4-7) by a random sharedgroup? (4-5-6-7 dwelling and military post). Or the same but with the types of housing.
dwelling1 = 1-2
dwelling2 = 3-4
dwelling3 = 5-6
military_post = 7-military post

No it doesn't work that way, the RMG adjusts dwellings to towns and sets the tier level this mechanism is inaccesible.

Today I generated a map with the ARMG, Huge no water no underground.
Added scripts and clicked save.

This error popped up. Is it normal or there is something I have not done.

This is a MMH5.5 random map based on template 8P-Ultima-Iu-(All#) created by the Advanced RMG v1.20 with options: impossible size, with underground, without water, with medium monsters. The map is for 8 players, start seed is 1444497289.
As you can see, map scheme variate from the one in the ARMG manual. But still map is fantastic.

If you want the AI to take longer to get to you, increasing the monster level above medium will likely have more impact than removing those connections.

There was no connections to remove in the first place. That is how ARMG created my map. And it still works fine (maybe Even Better Than The Real Thing). What I did is reopen it in editor and removed computer play-ability for some factions. So I came up with Dungeon vs Academy, Fortress and Preserve (1 vs 3). At start of the game I used console command "@H55_KillMe(7);" so computer players joined forces against me, and they also got 50% boost...
As I said it is great playing MMH5.5.

What I have noticed is that sometimes one does not receive some artifact bonus creatures. Workaround: 1. I get every hero to be visible on the map (can be in castle, but on the entry field); 2. Then using command "H55_On();" will restart scripts, and everything is back to normal.
A couple of other things: 1. Heroes from Dungeon that have specialty for increasing growth of some creatures (for example Hydras), are not receiving their bonus creature growth in castles. 2. Hero with Manticore specialty receives both Manticores in castles (doubled) and Witches join her army. If she has Cultmaster perk, that is.

I must say it took me some time (not too long) to get used to the new skill tree. And skills look excellent for all classes. At least for the ones I have played so far. If one needs some skill that is not by default meant for a specific class (like Combat for Assassins lets say), it can be found at Witch Huts. Every skill (perk) is useful, and there is solution for any build-up.

New artifacts, new buildings (with battlegrounds), new skill-tree, improved graphics... All that with an excellent RMG (random map generator is a must have for games like this), and improved AI.

Great job with the new ARMG!

You're right, I missed 8 connections, I will fix that as well as the artifacts.

In my humble opinion, this way (without the connections), the map is also excellent for playing. I even printed a paper copy of its scheme to wright down things while exploring the map. Just to be sure where things are.
So maybe, we can end up having two 8P-Ultima-Iu(All#) 's: one with and the other without those connections? ( 8P-Ultima-Iu(All#)A and 8P-Ultima-Iu(All#)B )
If it is possible of course.
Anyway, Thank You for giving new life to one of the best games I've ever played. MMH5.5 is on top of my Heroes list definitely!

Hi, I'm working on an ARMG template as well, something chaotic for all 8 factions.

Right now my main issues are that sometimes monsters cover the on-map creature dwellings and there are way too many Witch Huts - each player starts with 2 areas with their faction town (secondary must be conquered) and the map generates 8 Witch Huts between these regions.

What variables can I change to bring that to, say, two - one in each area?

Edit: Never mind, it's Shop Points. Found it after some extensive searching .

How can I make my own templates or adjust existing ones? I like playing on maps like L, Lu and XL, but with only 2-4 players, (and no zones with free castles). What I want to do is, first of all, create an 3-Std-XL-All. And so on. I might want to experiment with Belt and Chain templates too.

Could you give me any hint or source? XML and other related stuff is not problem for me.
