Adapting Homm5 Fortress for Homm3

Do you think it would be possible to adapt Homm5's Fortress faction to work as an additional Homm3 town? I think there's some desire in the fanbase for a Northern/Norse style faction and I think Homm5's Fortress might fit the bill pretty well.

You can create a new town with VCMI or replace an existing one with Era. Good luck!

Ps. H5 fortress town was crap though (dwarf with axe, dwarf with harpoon, dwarf with claws, dwarf on boar, giant dwarf... zzzzzzzz), but a Norse myth town correctly done would be very welcomed I guess.

What is Era? I did have some thoughts about a more diverse Norse based town:

Level One: Dire Wolf
Level One Upgraded: Alpha Direwolf

Level Two: Raider
Level Two Upgraded: Raider Chief

Level Three:Bear Riders
Level Three Upgraded:Black Bear Riders

Level Four: Hyrcinian
Level Four Upgraded: Hyrcinian Buck

Level Five: Valkyrie Maiden
Level Five Upgraded: Valkyrie Queen

Level Six: Kraken
Level Six Upgraded: Blood Kraken

Level Seven:Frost Giant
Level Seven Upgraded: Ice Giant

It's doable but you gotta be ready to make the sprites and that will take time and effort hehe.

Actually I'm working on three new towns at once. This Norse town, the Far Eastern one and then a Jungle town.

ummmm.... you do know that many people have ideas for towns, have given them, and haven't finished them? i'm actually one of those people, myself. but only because i don't have the means to as of yet.

that said, who knows what lies in the future. i may end up becoming a veterinarian or a cave-dwelling hermit after college. i may never come back to this place, or even do anything with h3 again.

hell, i could die today or tomorrow. you never know.

Dude, I hate to burst your bubble, but it's impossible to make 3 towns at once, you didn't even show us what you have made so far (if you got anything).

Pick a town, learn how to mod heroes 3 if you don't know already, start the town, make the buildings, the townscreen, the heroes, the creatures, finish it, only then consider moving forward to another town. Keep it realizable and only then you may accomplish something.

I'll be very honest, this is only in the planing stages. I've currently written creature stats and hero lists and I'm currently writing bios. I know it might not be achievable and that I might end up dropping it after a few months, but for the mean time I'm pretty dedicated. I can't promise it'll ever happen and I know that a load of people have come up with decent ideas, started working for them and then dropped them, and there is every chance I might end up joining them but until that happens I'm going to push to complete the planning stages so that I can always pick it up later.

that's the one that's closest to completion; since nearly all of the material was pre-made for it. i think the only thing i actually created for it was the townscreen background, and a dwelling. everything else was just available. maybe? i can't actually remember atm. but i'm pretty sure...

hell, even the sounds i compiled/mixed/tweaked/perfected for some of the creatures, i found the base sounds for online. but it's not like i'm ever going to MAKE sounds from scratch.

no, the only thing that hung me up with that project were two things, both having to do with the townscreen. if not for those two issues, i could have finished the townscreen lineup/dwellings and moved on to the map objects(of which i have MANY things to add; still in raw phase). that could have already been released by now, artifacts, map objects, and all; minus my own Forge puzzle(which i probably would never have finished, as i don't really care about the puzzles).
