Modding the Unmoddable

I have given my opinion that on graphics they are too neat and sharp. Probably other creaures would have to be replaced to fit right.

Also, is the paladin a giant? Compare it's size with the pikemen. I would rather they had extra armor rather than be extra tall

But really, my gripe is that this will make the most monotonous H3 town even more monotonous... 6 human warrior creatures and one griffin.

Also, I take it that as this is VCMI it can't really have special abilities?

Nothing to complain about graphics, paladin looks excellent and professional. Now, for the angel replacement, I for one don't like the idea. Archangels are just ... the all times preferred/most used creature of a majority of H3 gamers. But hey, is a mod so why not, go ahead.

Angels in external dwelling would be always nice supplement to Palladin Castle...or Palladins cheaper alternative in cheaper building with double growth regular Castle...

@fred79
We are not sure yet what kind of ability they will have, there are many ideas like casting mass prayer etc.

@NimoStar
He is not that tall at all, he is shorter than angel or titan on that matter..also scale in H3 is not right due to game mechanics. Therefore we can't shrink him in size that much if we want him to look like lvl7 unit.

In H2 knight castle there are only human creatures, and paladin is also the last unit. This is clear and direct reference to previous game in franchise.

And VCMI allows to have special abilities never seen earlier. In fact we have some special abilities programmed just for us by one of VCMI team members, dydzio. This is power of this engine.

@Salamandre/phe
phe is right, he is meant to be cheaper alternative for expensive archangels and with bigger growth rate. Good choice to play on smaller maps with less resources.

Ok, in other thread they said VCMI units (at least of new towns) cannot have special abilities at all... so I took that as a word.
If they can have it, yay!
A disappointment retracted :v

Archangel and Titan are not humans, in fact, Titan is suppossed to be as tall as a tower (Get it? Because it's from the Tower town! haha... ok, no)
If you look at human creatures (Pikemen, Crusader, Archer), all have the same body size - in fact this extends to most H3 humanlike creatures which are roughly the same size for simmetry (Including even skeleton, zombie, vampire, etc.)... thus why I think the paladin is too big compared to them, very hulking. But it is only an impression, I don't think it's strictly necessary to change it, but you asked for opinions and tha is mine from the point of view of graphical coherence and design.

Little missunderstanding. Special buildings can't have any special abilities or abilities from standard h3 towns. In creature abilities modder can be more creative.

For example, Mermaid from the same team, has whirpool protection ability. So having this beauty in army, hero can safely travel through whirlpools.

Ok, now I get it. It is still sad, but well, creatures is something. I take it they cant have Horde buildings either?

Horde system work as intended, because horde buildings are not unique and they are placed in every h3 towns. Only special buildings are 'empty'.

Nice!

I think there was a redrawing of Hafling? Is that available? I would really like to use it.

I hope you do release this mod eventually. If you do not, I would at least hope you share any usable material in general. Otherwise, it would be such a waste of really good material and that would be such a shame.

There is only one standing frame of halfling. I have never finished it, perhaps one day. From vanilla units much closer to completion is minotaur or elf, but we have not decided what we will do with them yet.

wowwwza guys, this is something else for sure, all of those characters are a gorgeous fit into the game and the buildings totally seamless, brilliantly done in every respect cheers lol

if I would say any piece of critique at all it is merely that the Dragon Golems do not exist in the lore of H3, but **** that who cares they are awesome lol

Done & done, though the one for Fred was given to one of his earlier posts in this thread, which didn't really pertain to these Town screens .

Lol. You give one finger ...

I'll have to find posts made by them here so I can award them.

Update:
Avatar, Drwal and WitchKing have gotten one, now, too.

Trith and Hobbit haven't posted in the last 3 years? And Sower last posted in 2015?
