Heroes 7 2.0 has been released! Check out the previous article and the download page for more details.

I have done quite a bit to get the maps fixed up especially of major gamebreaking issues and playtested them again. Initially, I didn't think much of them but they're fixed now.

It was an honor to work with some big names in COD mapping/modding. CoDeManX/Sevenz for his voice acting work and some mapping/modding elements. Jeannetovb (been a while, forgetten the right name. Scripting work). TakeHometheCup/BigWigglyStyle for his major effort on the mod to bring advanced game features such as helicopter combat, RTS, and commanding AI. Also a fellow mapper/modder, SPi for his custom main menu mod help and voice acting. Scillman for his custom main menu mod help as well. I also thank other helpers on the mod. I also thank my voice actors for their voice acting.

Now, what happens next? Well, I have been trying to use an installer and auto-updater but currently, there are issues with them. Due to the large size of the mod, a "free" installer just wouldn't work since there's size limits. And auto-updater is complex to set up. I may dabble later on but may not. Will there be a Heroes 7 3.0? I have thought about adding in a multiplayer mode so it's a possibility. Further fixes/patches to the single player maps? Not sure, unless they're really gamebreaking. I am done with the mod. Should I make future changes, I'll probably just release the changes as standalone. If I can figure out how to do an auto-updater or at least a script file to fetch online files, I'll do it instead to keep the initial download small.

I have found my old COD2 maps again since my hard drive had changed over the years. I am thinking about going back to continue the maps for COD2 but this would be a part-time basis. I have a few ideas but not sure whether or not I would carry them out. Heroes 7 3.0 might be the COD2 maps. COD2 is also easier to map for compared to COD4.

I do have other priorities, especially with life and work. I'm getting old and I cant spend forever on this mod. And I do have another main project that this mod was based on that I need to work on and finish. It had been fun but it's time to move on.

All in all, thanks for the support and the wait. Enjoy! Don't hesitate to ask any questions, post concerns, etc.
