Thank you. It was actually very useful, by matching stuff from different campaigns with the content in the links you posted I actually figured out what each byte does. However, I still couldn't pack a campaign back up and I tried like 10 different ways.

In such cases, I like to think that's it's easier to investigate a crime scene hands on than from word of mouth.

You can always try asking the ERA folks, maybe one knows about the source code.

The 5th byte from the extracted h3m should be changed to '01'.

There's also a h3maped patch you can implement if you want to do this automatically:
@3B268h
B0 01

The reason why it's not included in Unleashed editor (well, public release) is because it's a valid check but it sometimes fails for reasons I didn't bother solving.

Amazing thread. I have learnt a lot from it
Btw is it possible to create watchtower requiring exact ammount of attack (if you have more - you cant go through)?
Example: watchtower will let go hero with exactly 25 attack, my hero has 27 so he shouldnt be able to go.

I don't think it's possible on neither SOD or HotA without creating a map programmed with advanced stuff such as it's own mod mechanics created by the author to go compactible with the certain map only.

Some manipulations with object + event things. If you're want to dig something else beside standart grail, this could be an option! One flaw here - you need to press a spacebar after digging and in the case of spellbook + event, there is a windows pop-ups occurs when map is loading

Skin changing would make to look it better, btw

Looks neat!

Quick question - did you try without HDmod?
Wondering if this is another 'bug' introduced by it (like the replay day thing) or genuine mechanic and I don't have time to check right away (:

It works like this in vanilla as well. Fine trick, especially, for RPG-type of maps

Pretty cool, I'll look it up through the code to see how it happens.

Is there any possibility to reupload CreatureMoon program?

And maybe something similar exists for changing week of the creature?

Link in this post still works for me.

I don't know of anything to change weekly creatures, just that I provided the means to disable them (:

How to add unavailable objects in SoD?

.....

It's rather simple and works without WoG. Open H3bitmap.lod with MMarchive. Find Objects.txt and extract it. After opening it, you will get something like this:


.....

Now I am really proud of this post

Now I understand why we sometimes get our TXT files corrupted.
My friend, I am really terrified by the amount of the work you have done, but ERA has its own Object TXT editor, which saves everyone from editing text tables directly.
Moreover, these tables are not ever intended to be edited via Notepad!

What you need to do instead is to use ObjTxtEditor which is distributed with ERA and located in the Tools folder.
The tool also can be found in Google, but many links are dead to this day.

This doesn't work on HotA tho(tools), so HotA mapmakers are used to work with the notepad editing, and it works all fine. Atleast I'm using something better than the most simplistic one: notepad++
It has no massive use tho, but singular tho, and for all the regular objects only WoG or Unleashed is required, so the notepad has use for HotA objects in the least

Yeah, they are quite...special. But the red ground created by the arrows I actually like a lot (aport from that it makes the map a little slow...). The other ones are pretty weird, but I have found a way to weave them into the story

Back to topic, today will be more programs:

Yet another useful editor: h3mtered

This program combines multiple useful design options for maps. It allows to resize maps, set terrain in any wished for  way (although a bit unintuitive to use) and allows to preview combat terrain in an instant. Also you can copy and mirror terrain. It is a useful terraforming tool for specific cases!

H3rechner: A tool to check wheter a stack is upgraded or not

This is a very simple tool that allows the user to check wheter a specific tile has an upgraded creature, or not. If it says "geuppt", the toops will have an upgraded stack, if it says "nicht geuppt", they dont. Oberwelt means surface, unterwelt means subterranean.

H3CombatTerrain

This tool is probably known by most. It allows to check for battlefield obstacles in a very convenient way (pressing enter moves the highlighted area to the next box!).
Terrains: 1, 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, 64, 128, 256, f1, f2, f4, f8, f16, f32, f64, f128, f256, f512

LmOracle: A map testers dream

AlexSPl has released a tool that allows the user to guarantee Morale events, which is very useful for map testing. ...I suggest however not going crazy with this (more than 2 times morale, which is already crazy), or map will become unplayable. It seems that the morale check doesnt for x64 machines however...

@potmdehex Thats a gorgeous find! Can you upload that modified editor of yours? Would be great!

About the renaming process: I tried editing the map without renaming and extracting first, but then it did not work for me, because values are different. Also, if I dont rename, windows wont let me extract from the map...

LMoracle can't find HOMM3 window. How to fix this?
