Just to clear any hate towards us doing that, NWC planned to add an on/off option for it, in-game, and we are following their design philosophies.

while I appreciate the effort "adding lots of ugly ice to everything" isn't my deal. best of luck, though.

Just showcasing some assets, the ice especially is WIP. But thanks for the wishes!

the ice elves town - now a thing?
if only the dark elves of jademe had a town

Take a better look.... We have barely shown anything in this teaser too.
(I'm surprised how many people didn't pick up on all other hints)

do you mean... there are ALVERIAN DARK ELVES?! JADEME? the trade empire?!
True MMish dark elves, not the DnD bullwx?

Hehe. We here love MM and stick to it (since it's the canon), so the answer should be obvious.
That's all for now, not gonna spill too many beans.

Edit: I just checked DnD dark elves, no way those would be in, at least not in such a project. Ubisoft can stick to them.

At this moment you can see some creature looking like a frost magician(probably belonging to Palace faction) guarding the portal at the right of the  underground cavern as well as another creature guarding a dwelling at the left of the (strange new) obelisk, which seems like a Drider or such. Even its dwelling has spider webs.

My guess: it's an Alvar-based faction. Quartz dragons as top-tier, and H5-style riders which mount on Jadame "Basilisks". Driders are probably NOT as closely related to Dark Elves as in Forgotten Realms / DND, given their skin is pale gray not dark red.

Other units include some sort of gnome, myconid and a couple of dark elf units: a fighter and a mage.

Criticizm:
*Graphical art quality is not NWC/HotA level for a few units, most notably the White Tiger, but also Mandrakes.

Medieval mandrakes got drawn like this so if you take a suggestion, change it with something similar to AoW 1 Nature Elemental.

EDIT: I found image here

Regarding the graphical quality, most of the creatures shown are yet to pass the final phase of examination, after which the quality level will rise (shading and material tweaks etc.); the reason this town and creatures (and not others) were showcased was because of the season.

Palace is Vori elf town, by the way. Good observations on another town though!

In terms of mandrakes, they're represented in multiple ways in fantasy media, so this version is not as far-fetched, considering their faction's trope too; H3 itself does also take certain liberties when representing some creatures too.

The reason I suggested change of mandrake model is to have something more fit for Heroes 3 engine. The main issue with the mandrake is the leaf/petal dress it looks so different from Heroes 3 style.

In any case, if you guys have a discord channel or something like that I have a huge collection of (Heroes of) Might and Magic artwork, renders, screenshots. I miss only the creature images from old MM3-5 games (Isles of Terra and XEEN games) but I will add them. Hope they can be of use/inspiration to you (same as MM5 armadillos inspired HotA Factory).

I see, thanks for the feedback! I'll look into that then.

Well, to be fair, most of what we make usually has at least a few MM or other HoMM references, but I would indeed be grateful if you could share your collection.
I'm FirePaladin#2868 on Discord.


Edit:

@53lm

Well, regarding mammoths, for now I can't say "yes" or "no", but I can say that checking MM a bit could give an answer.

Note: I saw some people debating whether DoR replaces towns or not: it's been years of development and all new content we include is added to the game without replacing any existing elements, with map editor support too.

Everything looks awesome. Looking forward to it!

Are there any plans to improve RNG generation / template format ?
HOTA did that, but sadly it is not usable for WoG / ERA mods...

@BrandochDaha

There are plenty of improvements planned, as well as already done improvements. And not improving RMG would be a shame.


@53lm

Well, not to seem offensive, but none of those are part of NWC's MM, even though one is part of Gregory Fulton's Fanstratics.


@Lord_Immortal

I should apologize, I'm overly used with not putting an empty space between "Fire" and "Paladin" in some places. Anyway, I'll contact you later today, unless you contact me earlier.

your units?

I already shared with FirePaladin. He has shared it with the team though.

Its both the defs from acidcave as well as some 3D renders you can find on the internet like this.

The thing about my compilation is that everything is there as in an album and will facilitate work for dev team.
