Custom portraits for H3 - posting rules?

Hi. So a while ago I've made a H3 portrait pack for myself and a friend of mine. It's made from random images found online. Obviously that means I didn't create any of them, so I'm not sure if it's okay to perhaps post a .zip with the image files in case someone else liked them. The only reason I'm even considering it is that they're, well, tiny. Tiny tiny crops of the face-area of each image, but I know that what might seem okay and harmless to me, might not be such in the eyes of others. Don't want to be a douche here

I also heard that posting an actual .lod file is not okay since it contains game assets, so if someone liked them, they'd have to put them through MMArchive or something anyway, right?

Either way, the portrait pack is less lore-friendly, and more focused on visuals. I tried to keep the general theme for each character (so necromancers are, for instance, pale), but it doesn't contain any monsters as I simply don't find mice, bulls, or disfigured green creatures etc. aesthetic

And sometimes I also like to be contrary, so not every barbarian will be buff, and not every elf is flimsy

1. All available H3 portarits packs is made from various games pics or arts. None of them is made from scratch for H3 purpose.
2. Heroes portraits in bmp can be copied to Heroes3/Data directory. That's enough
3. If you want you can create a *.pac file and create era mod (see various portraits packs for ERA II platform).
4. You can create also "pack" for HD Mod. Player just must unpack your content to _HD3/Data directory and next choose your mod in HD+.

Simplest is indexed 256 color pic in data folder or Era mods/portrait/data folder.

I see. I know there are portrait mods for ERA, but I actually made it so that it can be used with HotA/SoD/whatever too. I simply moved them by MMArchive into the respective data files directly, seemed like the easier way to do it heh.

You know what, I'll just post a .zip with the portrait files. I don't know anything about creating packs for HD mod, so if someone will like these, you can take and make packs/mods off these or just dump them into the files the way I did.

Obviously they are all images in proper format, I've been using them in game for some time already.
