Upcoming version of our mod "Units and Combat Overhaul".

Posted by on

Project 567

We would like to announce, that new version of our Units and Combat Overhaul is coming. This version is going to change more things than we are used to. Starting with new rework of all factions and better balancing, new models, animations, sounds, visual effects, units and soundtrack. Of course we wouldn´t be able to do this on our own, so we would like to introduce you :

Credits

  • Units abilities and editing custom effects by - Warden Team
  • Editing of textures and sounds by - Kierby
  • Soundtrack by - H5, H6 and H7 music by Paul Anthony Romero and Rob King
  • All non edited vanilla content (Models, animations, textures, sounds) by - H5 by Nival Interactive, H6 by Black Hole Games and Ubisoft, H7 by Limbic Entertainment - this all under Ubisoft licensing
  • All knowledge about model exporting learned from - Zahar0z (link to one of his mod: Moddb.com )

We want to thank all developers of H5, H6 and H7 , expecially to their designers and artits, who made all those beautiful models, animations and effects. Next we want to thank all modders, who pushed them selfs so far and exported all those models, animations and sounds. Its very long and tedious work, expecially when there is very little to no tutorials on this subject. Even when we will start with just some of these visuals (models, animations), we are planning to export and add more of this content.

And finally the soundtrack. Paul Romero and Rob King has been composing music to these series very long time. Some of these beautiful tracks are going to be featured in our mod as well.

We thank to everyone once more and take care!

Kierby, Warden Team

Hello, thank you for your support. We are glad to be part of Heroes community and contribute in some way. Even when some of Heroes games (H7, H6) are not perfect and have many flies, the artists made great job in their part. We would like to take advantage of these resources and make them more usefull. This will take time however, due to the difficulty of such modification. Thanks one more and take care!

Hello, well thank you. We could possibly release early access in few weeks. But we are waiting for some modders, that should give as permission for using some of their work. Final version is going to take a while. Mainly due to long and tedious resources exporting from other heroes games. Right now we are trying to solve some problem with conversion of Maya models to Heroes 5 format. This slow things down quite a lot. However the unfinished version should be out soon. Take care!

This is like a dream come true. Heroes 6 and 7 indeed had wonderful art that deserved better.

Do you guys have a discord or something similar to keep track of things easily?

Hi! Well, thank you very much. I am personaly very upset about state of H6 and expecially H7. So much potencial wasted, because of budget, time, community requirements and expectation which made the inexperienced studio strength grow thin. Right now, we dont have a Discord because of size of our team. But if you want to receive news, i recommend making account here on Moddb and become "watcher".
Take care!
