IMPORTANT!

This version contains all factions reworked. Some changes may came depending on the feedback.

Try out our new community contest!!! More information in article : Maahir´s "Like a Boss" Competition

Main Descpription

This mod is trying to make combat fell more live and strategic than vanilla. In vanilla HOMM V, 90% of the time you already know, how the battle will end, but now you have much more opportunities to engage or defend yourself againts superior force of enemies. There was lots of units in every faction, that were so boring and useless in all kinds of battles and in general everyone was using just 3 types of units to win the battle. Now its not so important to have 1 overpowered unit but more units with good positioning, but that doesnt mean that you are not capable of dealing high damage with single unit. Now you have two options during buying units in castle, both second and alternative upgrade now offers you choice between high damage per one shot/hit or high survivability and very good "team" skills.

As mentioned in main description, our goal is to bring more live and variability to HoMM V ToE gameplay. Boring and useless units were reworked and now they are much more important and useful, some faction skills were slightly reworked as well, and finally came balancing of underpowered factions.

List of reworked factions:

  1. Necropolis - Faction skill,mechanics and buff of some low tier units as well as adding and replacing some units
  2. Haven - Units (bigger difference between upgraded and alternative), combat mechanics and price balancing
  3. Dungeon - Units (bigger difference between UPG and ALT), more combos in battles with units and more units for hiring
  4. Academy - Units (bigger difference between UPG and ALT), testing of special ability on tier 1 unit
  5. Sylvan - Units (bigger difference between UPG and ALT)
  6. Fortress - Units (bigger difference between UPG and ALT), better missiles options
  7. Neutral - More and better options to influence battlefield (2 units yet)

This mod is fully compatible with version 3.1. Multiplayer is also supported, if both (or more) players have the same version of the mod.

More changes coming next week! We will be glad for your feedback to help us with balancing, especially Haven and Necropolis factions.

Hello,
There is no problem with HOMM V on Windows 10 OS, as far as we know, so it should work very well. Game distribution is pretty big, but we can give you few tips. Best option is buying Steam version or GOG version of the game. Also Humble Bundle is good option. This should work on any operation system. We hope that this helped. PS: I respond in English so that everyone else with a similar problem is informed. Thank you for the question!

What do you specifically mean? If this question concerns the crash bug, its still in development. Main issue is, that every test consumes lots of time (about 40 - 160 minutes), so we must to be carefull about every combination, that can solve this bug. If you are interested in helping us, you can test some variations of the game and tell us, when it crashes. For the time being, we apologize for the inconvenience and we will try to come up with solution as soon as possible. Thank you for your patience and support!

In the new version 1.0, I was trying the mod for the changes in balance that I called attention. But when I attack a military post, the game crashes. I had that uninstall it.
My version of ToE is 3.1 and it happened in a military post of dwarven fortress. I have not tried others.
Please check and fix the problem as soon as possible. I'm interested in playing on your mod.

Thanks for your feedback! There was pretty long pause in development after releasing version 1.0 and our team was working on another mod for another game. Now we have some time to fix main bugs of this mod and balance some features. We already know about this bug with Fortress, that sometimes cause crashing. We have some ideas about what it could be, but the main problem seems to be so-called "random event generator". The best example for that is "Creature joining your army". When you try in the same turn attack creature with exactly same army (army size, same hero, same skills, etc.), that creature should join you every time. But if you try this next turn, the chance generated for that eventy is different. This mechanic work for everything in the game (level up, creature behaviour,even for AI. Now the reason, why it cause crashing with this mod in Fortress faction. Almost every creature in this faction have some additional skills after rework, and the game is not sometimes capable generate events the right way. For now, temporary "fix" or "help" is disabling quick battle, make the turn different or skip to next turn and try then. For the time being, we apologize for the inconvenience and we will try to come up with a better solution. Thanks for your support!

Hello there! This nerf of Necropolis faction will be mainly aimed at their economy and unit distribution. The main problem with their unit distribution is, that basic units without upgrade are too powerful, if we take into consider that their numbers are pretty high (expecially in late game). Also their upgraded versions are very cheap but still powerful ). So there are going to be some changes in upgrade price and in stats of basic units. But some changes can be done depending on feedback from Maahir´s competition. About Discord. Our team is using mainly email or voice services like teamspeak. For those who support us, we mainly use email (Moddb) communication. We strongly encourage you to try this Maahir contest and then helping us by giving us feedback. Thanks for your support!

Of course. I played Maahir's map,
I can complete it in about 6 hours in heroic, it was a lot of fun. So, by email I would like to chat with you, if the pleasure can tell me your address, we can help by giving some opinions/feedbacks.
Now my question is the following, use Mediafire for upload but, where should I publish/comment exactly the results of my game?

I had considered the fast battle option, but in the end I ignored that. I will disable it when I attack these posts. Thanks for your quick response (Y).
