Great map objects, but I guess I won't expect anything less from you

But I must say that I don't like both of mutated tree generators. I don't know what is wrong with it, but something is not right. Perhaps contrast is too low and it is lacking depth in my opinion. I would change it for first version with normal dead trees: scaling Axolotl creatures takes too much readability from them.

Here is a little comparision:


Anyway, great work !

PS. I will recommend you imgur.com for image hosting, as it seems you are having sometimes problem with this.

@ villl: no, this mod will be for Era. VCMI already has a Forge; i don't see why you would need two different Forge's to play with. lol, unless you're more into Forge than i even am(i'm pretty into it).

@ nephretes: the contrast issue is because i tried blurring the trees to get them to blend into the ground water more(they stand out a tad too much for my liking). i realized after posting the screens that by blurring them, the edges were brightened, instead of blending with the background. i'll figure out a way to make them all flush, don't worry.

you can convert it after it's released, if you know how to work with json files. i'm sure there's instructions online somewhere.

if you mean the adventure map stuff(aside from what is needed for the town to exist properly), that'll be coming out seperately, with my object patch(because it'll be ongoing work), which i think someone is working on to convert to VCMI, so it shouldn't be too much to add what i make for Forge. at least, i hope not. i'm starting out with just Forge terrain stuff, but afterward i plan on making Forge stuff specifically for each terrain(including terrain-specific ground patches). that's in the plans, anyway. the looooong list of plans.




@ nephretes: i found what i did wrong with that screen that you see the "wrong contrast" on the radiated trees. it was my own dumbass mistake: i forgot to remove the mutant trees from the screen, before making the radiated trees visible. the ugliness you're seeing is actually just the mutant trees behind the radiated trees(even though i used the same formula for both, they came out in slightly different proportions. i think the mutant trees are ever-so-slightly smaller than the radiated trees).

but don't feel bad, because i fooled myself as well.


these dump sites should look better:

How is your line-up planned out? Is it close to the original concept or are you making some changes yourself? Also are you planning on using .DEFs that are already available or are you making your own creature defs?

I'm very interested in your renditions of the adventure map dwellings. The previews you showed some page back looked great. Can't wait to see more of that.

the lineup is set to replace Stronghold creatures, respectively; and the easiest way(with minimal scripting). i haven't ironed out the stats yet, but when i do, i'll post 2 creature lineup screens(with the initial creatures, and the upgrades).

i'm using already available defs; as i don't have the knowledge or experience required to make my own creatures yet. even if i did, i doubt that i could make anything near as cool as what's already been made for Forge. i don't think i could ever surpass their quality, by any means. hopefully, i'll be able to make something as cool(and with great quality), when i learn 3d to make the creatures and whatever else i need for my Fear faction.


edit: i just screenshotted all the town creatures' non-upgraded and upgraded stats for every faction(as i couldn't find them all online last night unedited, and in the format i wanted them in) in-game. it shouldn't take long to iron the stats out now.

Robot Defender -- Robot Assualter
Technician -- Engineer
Variant -- Mutant

nice work(although somewhat different from the homm3 style). if you have an upload for your mod, you should create a thread for it. i'm sure modders here would like to know how you modified the exe, too; i know i would. the more information available, the more we can all benefit.

and, welcome to the forum.

Thanks for supporting me. I am not the first time to visit here, but I have changed my account... I used named Karen here..That is not my name, My name is Ben.

Now I am in Australia for my Master and PHD degree. But I cannot speak English well,some sentences might be ridiculous...

I found my own method to change the exe programming and add some new creatures and banks successfully. I started to make a new mod with my friends(maybe we still cannot called a team..)

I suppose we can make a full mod in 2016, maybe..

well, welcome back, karen(i assume you forgot your password to your other account?). that's a beautiful townscreen, btw. very nicely done.




and, for pellish and whoever else is wondering, my lineup and stats for creatures in my Forge/Stronghold changeout(i haven't worked on the images that belong in h3bitmap, yet. at least, i haven't added yet what i have worked on):





fixed the stat errors, and made the background boxes for the creatures from my townscreen.

That's good. Making creature models is the the most difficult problem for me..So I need to search some models in the website and change each part of the model..Sometimes I am lazy to do it.

I forgot my original account indeed..And last year I had other things to do so I quited the mod activities.

completed the naga tank sounds. i gave it a day or so so i could come back and listen to the naga tank movement sound in-game, to see if it was good(after making sounds, i have to wait awhile, because i hear things differently after actually working on the sounds; than when i hear them fresh again). everything sounds good. i had to work out the timing on the naga tank death sound(which is comprised of engine, death shriek, electricity, and 3 or 4 metal clunking sounds combined).

so i'll give it a day or so, then play with all the creatures, and see if everything sounds right. i already had to tweak the minotaur's jetpack sound before completing the naga tank sounds.

as i'm waiting the grace period to hear the creature sounds again fresh, i'll make the sounds for their adv map dwellings.

Great looking dwellings!
What for town background image for this Forge?
Will you use existing Forge background?

PS How Dwelling 1 will look? Is it not ready yet?
