That's not a new game, but a wog mod.

Come to think of it, I "don't really have to" make it that way!

I could just "borrow" some, well, most, of the game mechanics and make one of my own!

And since "game mechanics" can not be copyrighted, I think I'm pretty safe on that note, right!?

No no no! What I want to "borrow" is the "game mechanics", not the "source code"!

Heroes 3 source code was lost, so it's not even an option..

I wish you luck, heroes it's a game that too few games stole ideas from. At least the right ones...

I wouldn't worry so much about copyright.
Rather tell us something about your idea.
Why you wanna make a new WoG, What is your concept? Why is it needed? Which gap would you like to serve?

I'm always a little suspicious when someone has so big plans as to create a complete overhaul or wants to make it all completely new. The work needed investment for such a project is huge. Usually, these projects are dead after a few months because motivation only carries on for a few weeks before fading.

Edit: I see you have already given a short insight on the first page.

Well... first of all, the main reason why I wanna make a new WoG is because my ERA "ALWAYS" crashes! >"<

I can't "NEVER" play a decent game without ending up rebooting my computer!

And it's really piss me off!

So then I thought, "Fxxk it! I'll make it myself!"

Second, my idea is simple, to make a game based on mods.

I had played ERA and had messed around with its scripts, so I kind of know what it takes to be a "good game", and that's the "style" I'm aiming.

Units, buildings, towns, etc. are all based on mods, all I'm doing is to make the "core" to put everything together.

I first thought about making everything based on WoG (In the beginning of this thread), but then I changed my mind and thought maybe I could mix something from Pathfinder, than it won't have any copyright problem.

Some from here and some from there, than none of it can say that I stole their shxt! XP

And like I say in the previous replies, I'll maybe change the big map and battlefield movement to continuous instead of grids. Which means, a big circle instead of 6 hexagonal steps all around.

Of course, this have some big obstacles to be overcome, I don't really know how to solve it for the moment. >"<

And Random Map Generator is a big problem too! I'm still looking for a "good and simple" algorithm to do the job. >"<

Greetings, I want to note that lately it has become very difficult to find quality software development specialists. It took me almost a week to find guys who are ready to complete my project within a normal time frame. And in this regard, I turned to [url=https://perfectial.com/fintech/]https://perfectial.com/fintech/[/url] for help, since only there I found what I needed.

Or you can help with VCMI. Sources are open-source, nobody will steal them, help to make VCMI bugless and mod it with ERM scripts to level of WOG is always welcome.

For most of us, it will be very problematic to understand how easy and affordable it is to transfer your business to a digital platform. To do this, there are many ways that I found on [url=https://wellmage.com/services]this website[/url], where it is very simple and accessible to explain why it is worth adhering to these rules.

In the gaming technologies are used. Day by day new and new technology is coming with the help of which new and new games are in the market for players. In the gaming's also services of developers are needed on high levels. This gaming is also a full fledges industry in the technology world. But do you have any idea about these [url=https://mobilunity.com/blog/hire-rust-developers/]Rust developer Ukraine[/url]? If you do not know about these developers then I can tell you the best platform where you can visit and read the whole information about these developers. These Rust developers are rarely available because this technology yet has not widely popular. But this technology is having its own benefits like it saves the time, cost and energy of the developers. And this technology has its own features like fast code complications and opportunities to fix their bugs easily. So you can hire these developers from this website. In the market various websites are providing the services of developers but all of them are not reliable one. For hiring these developers you have to check the website where you can rely. Because hiring the developers is one time task and so costly that you can not hire them from time to time.

As long as you don't use the NWC "intellectual property" (graphics and names), you can make whatever game you want.

Game mechanics can't be copyrighted so you can make a 100% gameplay clone of H3.

For most of us, it will be very problematic to understand how easy and affordable it is to transfer your business to a digital platform. Therefore, it is recommended to use a good technical networking stack for [url=https://computools.com/server-side-development/]server-side development[/url]. However, various programming languages &#8203;&#8203;and frameworks make this difficult.

I agree, Nick. It is still very problematic to understand digital platforms and technologies for some people. I work as an app developer, by the way, you can visit [url=https://madappgang.com/blog/how-to-develop-a-telehealth-app]https://madappgang.com/blog/how-to-develop-a-telehealth-app[/url] this app development guide on telehealth applications. It's not so hard to understand it, so I hope our blog will help you!

Hi, I want to note that now it has become very popular to buy goods in other countries. And personally I use [url=https://packageradar.com/courier/yuntrack]Yunexpress[/url] for this, where I can track my parcel and know exactly when it will arrive. It is very convenient.
