Do it yourself... Or play on random maps. Now there are only a few russian maps.

So i tried to create a new alternative creature that got no upgrade (bats)
i created a new entry in the creature editor (#263), named it Royal bats, and slyghtly improved the stats to reflect the upgrade, also made bats upgradable to Royal bats, made a copy of the bat portrait and named 263.jpg under /data/MoP/Tools/MCrEdit/pic
look like all is displayed correctly in the editor:


However in the game the creature appear without portrait:



and when i exit town screen i get a CTD:



What i'm doing wrong?

Also, what is the use of these nodes? (water,earth,fire,air)

You have to add the portraits of creatures in MWCRPORT.DEF and MOPSMALL.DEF. JPG-pictures only for editor.

+50% of basic magic damage for each captured object.

Oh, your added hero portraits is pretty good.

Oh, should had the suspect that the game didn't accept .jpg format, used a DEF editor and it's working now
Thanks!

Yes, revamped almost all hero portraits, still work in progress

Cool, but... However, sadly, that all men are replaced with portraits, while you can add them in catalogs 1-99... it's so easy:

(catalog_number)UH(size_letter)(portrait_number).pcx

For example, the fifth picture in the second row of the female catalog of the user directory #31 will have the file names: 63UHS31.pcx, 63UHL31.pcx and 63UHX31.pcx.

Yes i noticed i can add many new portraits to the game, that's a pretty cool feature but i prefear to use my portraits as default.
Don't get me wrong i like most Masper or Puppets portraits
but i wanted to replace the original ones so i can recognize them in the game since i use these portraits for every HoMM3 mod i play like HoTA or WOG and don't want to change them manually every time i hire a new hero.

I'm still a noob but slowly i'm beginning to understand how to import new creatures to the game, and thanks to master of puppets editors i'll say it is easier and faster than i thought.
My quest to give every faction a alternative unit is started, this is  what i made so far.



Every new creature alredy got an upgrade and some even a third upgrade
However these creatures need new external creature dwellings and i have no idea how to do that, also heroes need new creatures specialities.
I don't know if this is the right place to ask, but how i do that? is there a guide or something i can check?

You need to rebuild MoP.exe by modifying files Dwellings.txt and Specializations.txt.

While that is not supported.

Aw, i'm not sure i can do that...i need access to the source code and even after that i'm not sure i can compile the executable after i modify the files.

Anyway i almost finished my alternative creature project that will also include new musics (from HoM&M and M&M series), new hero portraits and modified creature stats. I need to do just one faction.
preview screenshots:





With your permission i will post what i have done so far, and who knows maybe you can find something useful for your next versions of MoP

I was noticing sometime the creatures was dealing less damage that expected and i was unable to found out what was the reason...now i think i found out the culprit:

When a in a group a creature have the ability "Damage to enemy when passing by" or "Damage to passing by enemies" all the creatures from that group will deal less damage depending on the amount of that variables.
So for instance, if in a group there is a creature with 50% damage to passig by enemies all the creatures will deal 50% damage unless they attack without moving, in that case they will deal regular damage.

Hmm... Hmm... This is the only place where used [__%]-variable (corrected phys. damage):

.if signed [__%] > -1;
      or eax, -1; now eax = -1
      xchg [__%], eax; reset variable (-1)
      cvtsi2ss xmm0, __
      mulss xmm0, 0.01
      cvtsi2ss xmm1, eax
      mulss xmm0, xmm1
      cvttss2si eax, xmm0
   .if eax
      mov __, eax
   .endif
.endif

Few other bugs:
- Sometime too many black magicians buffs/debuffs will lead to a CTD.
- Even disabling Black magicians they will still appear on the map, much less but they will be there.
- Moving onboard a ship while having a special terrain unit in group will leave special terrain on the water.

And few questions:
- I managed to modify specialities and starting armies of heroes by modifing mop.exe with a hex editor but can't find where the new skills are located, for example i want to modify construction since i think the bonus is too weak.
- I have added alternative creatures for every faction but they never appear on the map as neutral army in random maps, i'm missing something i guess.
