I still think it should be very similar to H3 and H5, but I agree, the game would need lots of testing, polishing, and all parts of the game to be well thought, before any beta.

Eh, I agree with veteran_player that some innovation would be nice.

Here's an idea, what about a skill that allows a hero to place roads?

Eeehhhhhh maybe? I think that would work best if each faction had a "throwaway" class meant to do side hero stuff though. I think rather than a hero skill it would make more sense to make roads a town building that can connect 2 towns.

You could do it the Alpha Centauri way and have, in addition to heroes, things that move like heroes but are workers, and can build roads and claim unguarded resource nodes but not fight and insta-die to an enemy hero. But as in Alpha Centauri and unlike in RTSes, most resource income should come from towns (or permanent resource nodes) so that you don't have to build a ton of workers for macro.

The road-building thing seems to be quite nice and interesting tho. But it should cost a decent quantity of resources and time.

Yes, but maybe a further development of HoMM5, with the extra strategic dimension of recruiting more potent unit stacks on the adventure map. That is what my whole idea is about. To expand upon the strategic fun that is copywrited and unique to this series.
