Heroes III HD Edition - modding

The classic version of heroes 3 is constantly changing, but why do not you look forward to a hd edition that is simply more beautiful.

AB and SOD back to HD editions! + HOTA

Ubi's H3 HD is a fail. Even the graphic improvements are not that good. And they didn't even fix the bugs that appeared in the original game. Also, why would people bother to try to repair Ubi's mess and waste energy to do what was already done with original H3? Honestly, there is no gain (again, graphics in Ubi's HD are not even that good).

God saved us from another ubisoft mockery called 'AB HD Edition' or 'SoD HD Edition'.

#TrueFrosty is right, Ubisoft's HoMM3 HD version is a piece of garbage, nothing more than a desperate cashgrab, as well as a way to lure in old fans, whom they alienated with their Trashcan setting.

Besides, the modding community had came up with HD mods way before Ubicrap, and they are generally of a better quality.

For me HIII dont need ,,better graphic". Its still beauty. And needs low level of hardware. 5x pixels and game has 5 GB size. For what? For what high of class of computer too run 1999 year game :-):-):-) I know HIII graphic after years playing very good :-):-):-) Its only cash venture. We dont have modding movement this HDEd and I dont think it will be. Ofcourse if it be will Im not opposite.
But for me we need VCMI masterisation. Inteligent AI, adding Era 2.46, faster loading, and a lot of new cities! It will be HD!

My days at Heroes 3 have ended. The game is still the same and no more than 2000 modes will save it, and the future is at Heroes 7, which is better than repair.
† The HD version was an opportunity to do something about heroes 3 and do not turn away from graphics today.

Unfortunately, these community posts are deep in nostalgia heroes 3.

I still love heroes 3, but I can not play them anymore!

Mods heroes 3 hd I would take in this case more than classic heroes 3!

HD Edition had its first mod adding RMG and all AB/SoD maps released a few hours after it was launched on Steam on its release day and there's been a sticky on the Steam forums as well a HC thread (in the non-WoG/ERA/VCMI/HOTA section) since that day:

Hue hue hue, h7 is the future? Don't make me laugh. H7 was already dead before it was released. This comes from someone who has modded h7 extensively.

H3 had pre-rendered graphics made in 3d, h3 hd ubi has a photoshop filter applied on them. If you talk about resolution then there's the HD mod which also adds a lot more features.

What? H3 HD was pure ROE, that is vanilla h3 with the first balances patches, it doesn't even have the expansions, it has literally less content than h3 complete, why would anyone play it instead of original h3? If you want an example of a game that had a good HD remake, that was AoE II, it doesn't only have the original expansion, but it also has 3 new ones (one of them which was made by fans at first, think of HotA), h3 hd was nothing but a lousy cash-grab by ubisoft.

HD Mod is way better than HD Edition.

Also:
(ROE + AB + SOD + HOTA) + HD MOD > ROE HD Edition
(ROE + AB + SOD + ERA II) + HD MOD > ROE HD Edition
VCMI > ROE HD Edition

I'm sorry that you feel that way. But saying that about the community shows how little you understand it.

First of, name one thing that Ubi's HD gives, that original H3 doesn't have (and don't say graphics, it does not give anything to the game that will make it fun for you again).

Second, the community gave you WoG, ERA, HotA, VCMI, countless mods, etc, for Heores 3. It made the game much better, and more versatile. Community has done a lot for the whole Heroes franchise (and is still doing it), which can't be said for Ubi. If Ubi was a decent company (lol), they would first release a whole H3 as HD (not only RoE) and make it compatible for existing mods (alternative was to contact modders and help them with making the mods compatible). However, Ubi is a sh** company, and what they did was a quick moneygrab with H3 HD. Now, you ask the community to make H3 HD better, but why should community do something that Ubi should've done at the first place.

As for H7 being the future (lol), did you forget that game was abandoned days after expansion was released? Did you forget that there are countless bugs in that 'game'? Did you forget that AI of the game is idiotic?

This thread is not about we want play only and still HIII. Personally I like all I to IV and NWC MM. But this thread is about Ubi HD. To mod this ed we need ALL GAME REWRITING!!! add SoD add AB! Next adding WoG, HotA, Era, VCMI! Who has time?! I think thats more difficult than rewriting all game from zero. And for what? Only adding more pixels? Maybe easiest way is add to old game tinting option for high res, if you don want rectangles graphic. Tinting alghoritm will be easiest and fastest. A lot of easy...

Has the idea of heroes 3 hd edition + AB + SOD + HOTA in HD graphics. So it was meant. I would like to modify heroes 3 with outdated graphics.
