Hello,
Again i tried a quickly little project based on a spoiled blend...
Thats the result i bring to you guys



The animations are reused from a shield berserker, so the left arm behavior can be optimized, but thats just the first show up.

Barbarian is one of the Heroes' classes' names, though.

Some nice synonyms for the basic units could be: Boor, Brawler, Brute, Cave dweller, Hellion, Hulk;
And for the upgrade: Warmonger, Warlord, Weaponmaster, Hyborian (Hyperborean?)

I haven't used any external anti-virus for years. I use only Windows Defender and I never had any problems. If you are a thinking person and you don't download suspicious files and you don't visit suspicious websites, you won't have any problems with using a computer without an anti-virus.

Just always download VCMI from the official website: https://vcmi.eu/. And if you have any doubts, the source code is on github.

Mamy people dowloadad and played VCMI and they didn't reported anything suspcious (including me). I think it's overreaction of your antyvirus software.

Hmm, mixed feelings about the Dragon Golems... Their appearence doesn't really fit Heroes 3 Style.

Some of your other creatures such as the Troll Witches, Paladins,
Tritons and Werewolves have been fantastic, but the Dragon Golems feel a little different. I'm not suggesting you to remake them but here there are two other versions (I think made also by your team) on four legs, I think that they're better.

On a side note, I'd like to make a suggestion regarding Rampart and Conflux:

Wouldn't it be nice to have Firebirds/Phoenixes as Rampart alternative to the Green/Gold Dragons?

As for Conflux:
Lv.6: Conjurer -> Enchanter
Lv.7: Egregore -> Godform (Renamed and rebalanced Psychic & Magic Elementals)

Thanks for suggestions and king words! I - as non graphic skilled member of the team - can only say that mod is about 98% done and I guess there won't be any significant changes. About Dragon Golems - Hobbicus is a guy for "lore expansioning". He wrote drafts for maps/campaigns to explain how our units appeared in Erathia. As you know, 4-legs Dragon were invented by Magnus in Axeoth. So our Drake Golems have completelly diffirent origin. Bad news is - VCMI map editor can't handle yet 'time events' feature to introduce some lore stories. So in first version of the mod, there won't be new maps. Only pieces of stories can be only found in hew heroes' biographies.

Maybe it would be nice movement! But we decided not to touch original mechanics/features as much as possible. So there won't be any balance changes or altering the statistic of original creatures. To ensure backward compatibility as one of the reasons...

Also not a fan of creating abomination towns by replacing or making alternatives for original creatures, for example peasants in castle, boar riders in stronghold, enchanters in conflux etc.

About graphics... it depends what you think these dragon golems are made of. If they are made of metal then their surface is very different from iron golems and may not fit. However if they are made out of bones then their current look is pretty matching in my opinion.

I'd suggest your team not to bother that much with the lore, since even 3DO/NWC did a huge lore mistake when they made Gavin Magnus young in Heroes IV while he was old in M&M 7.

Besides, in Heroes 3, dragons & griffins are meant to stand on 4 legs even if they're shown on 2 (Might&Magic 7 again).

That's not true. What do you mean they are supposed to stay on four legs? Every dragon in the game is portrayed standing on two legs.

In Might and Magic 7 RPG they're on 4 legs. The Reason why on H3 they're on 2 is, I think, for visual ease. So they're on 2 legs in H3 but they represent creatures on 4 legs.

a bit of a nonsense there, did you forget that he got burned to a ******* crisp and used magical immortality to come back to life between those two games lol

also if one minor mistake is ever made let's pile on as many mistakes as we want because of the one mistake, is that a correct philosophy haha lol

So you argue that the new dragon should stay on four legs because all dragons in heroes 3 are portrayed staying on two legs? I can't see any logic in that, in case I miss something let me know.
