As I have said before the true future is in fan projects and spiritual successors.

However, if Ubi is to do anything else, this is what I reccomend:

Quote:
Ubi should buy the bugfix pack from modders before even giving away the game for free...

Anyways, at this point I think I am onboard with the "just make a super new H3 with sprites" crowd.

They keep having such low standards for 3D functionality and code that going back to the roots is the best they can do.

Make as a sprite game with high-res, scalable dynamically to any resolution and use the vintage mechanics as a starting point and the old graphics as a stylistic reference.

H3 is, after all, still the most graphically beautiful and aesthetically pleasing of the Heroes franchise. If they can't manage to program, at least make them make good art!

What do you guys think, do you like the ability icons that creatures has, or should the ability primary in the text?

Heroes 2-3 had hidden ability where you read the docs
Heroes 4 had icons
Don't remember what Heroes 5+ had

I like the things like Troglodytes are blind so "visual spells" or medusa's stone gaze doesn't work


Was this intended for this thread?

For what's worth, base abilities should be displayed either on text or icons, because even if you could pretend you didn't know a units abilities the first time you met them (which would be logical), the next time you found them in another map, you would know anyway.

If there was something like incremented abilities, which would depend on the Hero influence over its troops, perhaps you could only see it through the use of spells (like Vision, for example) or based on your heroes Scouting capabilities. You would know that unit's abilities, but anything exotic or influencing those abilities directly wouldn't be known unless investigated.

***

Speaking of Heroes future reminds me of Mass Effect future. Both situations get me sort of grumpy, hopeless and wishing to beat someone with a stick.

Who cares about the future? I want to know if there even is a past.

There are games that implement a kind of vbestiary where you only get the info of monsters you encountered/defeated.

Other option: You can only know the stats/abilities of your own creatures.

Obviously, unless stats and abilities had some kind of randomizator (which is a very possible thing to explore too, even with graphics changing to reflect it), the "Mystery" would still only be for once. Anyways this can be for singleplayer modes of game only.

You want to give the player the necessary information in a TBS game. Bestiary and such stuff are RPG elements.

I sure hope this. I'm 48 and i'm praying i'll still play some fresh HOMM game 20 years from now.
If not, i wish for a new game to win my heart as HOMM did. So far no one could. They were occasional lovers.

Bump.

So here https://mightandmagic.ubi.com/pre-registration-now-open/ is Ubisofts idea for the franchise after a few years of silence?

Well, at least it looks like a fun little game...

Well actually it looks pretty fun. If not for my aversion to all things M&M under Ubisoft flag, maybe I would pick it up even... moreover, aversion aside, Ubisoft has a tendency to "drop" their games after a few months on the market (Duels of Champions, Division, Crew, For Honor etc), so it would be a wasted effort.

I hope at this year's E3 or Gamescom they will announce Heroes 8!! Its time for it! lso there were some rumors and jobs about an AAA Strategy and AI management application for jobs at Ubisoft in Germany!

Whatever game BlueByte is doing with cooperation with Ubisoft Berlin, they are searching for 3D artist:
Work with your lead, other art teams and Art Director to create high quality AAA 3D art assets
Deliver on visual and technical requirements
Setup destruction, dynamic objects and other functionality of art assets
Create high quality textures & masks
Review outsourced art assets
Optimize art assets to fit specific technical requirements
Help other teams to reach their goals by providing them with asset expertise

Heroes != AAA game (for Ubisoft)

Just deal with it, there will be no H8 announcement.

Their focus for strategy game is on Anno game.

I snowed up with buying H6 (I like H5, though), and I will never ever buy Heroes game (or any other tbh) from Ubisnow. I didn't even consider buying H7, and I decided that it wasn't worth torrenting either.
