[H3] The Map Exchange Thread

~INDEX~ (last updated 4. June 2016)

Amistad v1.5

Original post said:

Hey everyone!

This thread shall be used to share maps to the audience, which are not (or at least, very un-) known to the general public, and deserve a higher play rate. Unfortunately, due to translation problems, many brilliant maps are forgotten in the dusts of foreign lands.

Maps searched for should fulfill some amount of quality, please don't post every other trash map here you find in foreign forums

Biobob] said:
This map, at least for me, held much insight into H3 mapmaking. You probably remember this structure:



The base idea of that was nurtured by this map, which has tons of these, for example:



The problem with this was, that this constellation held a bit too much RNG for me, which is why I tweaked it a bit and made it more stable.

The map starts you off on three positions, the first one being an interesting setup where you are able to choose your main hero (Archery, Offense, Resistance or Armorer) freely.



The second holding at the start of the map looks like this:



There you start off with Gurnisson and fight some awesome early battles using said machine in order to get another hero as quickly as possible. The situation get's more interesting as you progress, as most battles in this map are fought on open battlefield, which is something many people are not really used to (since town combat allows for such nice setups). This makes the map more random, but it is okay tuned, so there won't be many problems.

Finally, there is some Kyrre Action going on:



Now, this map is quite interesting, since it teaches you to keep up with the enemy roaming your lands (and trust me, there are ZOUNDS). Still, the map is very easy for a BT map and a good practice for those who want to get better at h3 Single Player. It may seem hard, but most of the roaming heroes have quite similar or simply random armies, and can be dealt with easily. You just need to time when to elinate and when to avoid them. Also, this map promotes swift play by placing these structures:



The quest guards ask you for an increasing amount of troops, and all but the last one (which has the highest price) have a dead line. It is quite similar to the time gates in ~Metataxer's Revenge~, but with more outcomes.[/quote

Facit: Great map for aspiring mapmakers and people who want to become better in Single Player. Design is pretty uninteresting in my opinion. There is more or less no story, so there is no language barrier pretty much.

Original Title: When Champions Fail

Download: Dropbox hosted

Author: Chris Tiahrt

Minimap preview:

Overworld: 36x36


Difficulty: Easy

Description: An oldie but a goodie! This is a fairly old map that was once well known but now it's difficult to find it.

The cavaliers of the kingdom are dead.  All of them.  Slain by the marauding dragon known as Firefang.  And when champions fail, peasants must be heroes.

In this map, you begin with a single peasant and cannot recruit any creatures! You will have to use your wits to defeat monsters.

Some are quite easy to combat...


Others will require some thinking.


There is also a lot of hidden content so it makes for a fun little adventure!

Given the interest (lack of) to this thread, I'm not really willing to spend significant amount of time making new posts. But for the interested this is the best source of working links for Chinese maps at the moment, to my knowledge.

Thank you very much for your reply.
I have found some maps and some walkthroughs at gamerhome.com but I cannot be sure about the authors and the names of these maps. I am not familiar at all with chinese and the search bar doesn't seem to work.
I suppose I cannot beat these maps (e.g. Xiedu) but I believe that they are a must-have for any old Heroes 3 player.

Hi. I suppose you will need the magic arrow spell, the armor of the damned and the orb of vurnerability to kill the red dragons.

Mmm, I think the dragons move before the Armor casts, only if they wait that would work.

When I tried it, both of the dragons waited. But even if they come forward, they cannot reach the peasant in the first round. The armor of the damned reduces their combat speed to 5 and then the player has the chance to cast the magic arrow spell twice before the dragons' next turn.
