Heroes 1 Maps for Heroes 3 :)

Hello all! So I'm working on bringing over the campaign of HoMM 1 to HoMM3. I'm creating the maps in WoG format to leave room for further modification.
Anyway, here is what I've got

Scenario 1:



Scenario 1 v0.4 Beta

I'll be actively updating this if anyone takes an interest in it. What I need is for people to test it, report any bugs and give feedback where it's needed.

Right now, I need to change the creatures up and balance each Hero. So far, the map has just been implemented and built. After I have each map set and made I will compile them into a campaign.

Update v0.4
-Added a map description and 1st-day event with the map description from Heroes 1
-Changed name to Scenario 1: Gateway
-Changed level limit to 6

Good point, lol. It actually should be the Dungeon so I'm not sure why I put the Tower I'll fix that

cheers mate lol

you have now got me curious as to whether anyone knows if it is possible to open the campaign maps of Heroes 1 in the editor, I have never tried to do that but a quick google does not turn up any promising results on it lol

Just rename them. For example, CAMP1.CMP -> ALEX1234.MAP (but not with prefix CAMP!), and so on.

Feel free to let me know if my work is in vain and I will completely drop all of my progress and focus on something else.


This is not the right question to ask. No one will come and say don't do this. You have to ask yourself if you have fun while creating maps or mods or projects, this is the most important part. Later on you can always think about sharing with others and if you are lucky you get one and a half downloads. Best ideas always come while doing the work, and who knows, maybe in the end we have a nice H1 campaign in H3 style, which than at this point would be a nice contribution to the heroes 3 community

oh awesome thanks mate, I knew that the rename worked on Heroes 2 campaign maps but it did not when I tried it on Heroes 1, I did not know about CAMP being a flag so I will try that again, thanks very much for that info man lol

Great idea, myself I would be more interested by H2 campaigns ported to H3, as I never played H1. Congrats on your job.

Great! I have it!
Use picture ground generation in Unleashed or WoG editor from screen maybe will be faster? Map converter between heroes is needed!
If you work on single maps I suggest not only 4 cities.
Tower can in 50% maps replace castle.
Conflux --> bastion
Citadel --> fortress
Dungeon--> necropolis and inferno
Will be more intersting.
Nice work!

It's awesome that you feel that way BerryR. Thanks for the inspiration. I'm a bit used to being shamed for shoddy attempts.

My idea is to tackle Heroes 2 right after this. Honestly, it shouldn't take long. All that I've done so far only took a handful of hours XD

Nice work!

Unleashed? I don't believe I've heard of that. My Heroes 1 map editor won't even work so I simply left the game open and placed everything eye-2-eye to get it like this. I did screenshot the minimap and used the minimap-bitmap import option to get the terrain like it was, however then it was a matter of fixing the single tile destruction it caused.
I definitely want to use other creatures and castles for the Heroes 1 maps. I placed them eye-2-eye but I plan to change anything and/or everything needed to change according to feedback.

@Salamandre H2 Campaigns are to ported to Horn of the Abyss.

I also suggest doing H1 Campaign to be played under Horn of the Abyss, HotA Crew will probably allow you to use their internal campaign editor.
