Posted: 2012-07-12, 18:07 Question regarding the completeness of VCMI.
Wanted to ask if all the original Heroes 3 functions work, I am not interested in anything WoG, just asking if content up to H3SOD1.4 works? While its nice to see lists of things that do work out there, a list with what doesn't, if anything, would be more useful.
AI is incomplete in first place. Game mechanics are quite complex and it may take a lot of time before AI can handle them all. Especially when it comes to battles - it seems that only abilities bttle AI understands is flying and shooting.
This is not hard to check, comparing results in top maps. The true challenge may come from the fact that you guys correct the flaws, thus make those maps unwinnable. Again, needs test, let's say on some chinese maps I played recently
Well, I'm working only on adeventure AI now. Battle AI is pretty much non-existant, so you may wait for a challenge quite for a while.
Still, it doesn't need to be better to make these maps impossible. If AI just rushes all the flyers out of the castle or spams dispell all around, you may have no chance despite it being quite stupid :P
Writting good AI is a separate subject unrelated to rest of the game and it's relatively easy, so we'd like to find more programmers to help.
