Okay, in keeping with my original thoughts to take bits of projects that were abandoned and bring good work to life, here is my second effort with Paint.net, based off the resources file misiokles directed us towards. I will post town-screens, and if anyone likes what they see I will post individual building pics later on a new topic thread.
I went with this townscreen based on an earlier post. As far as any copyrights go, I intend to do some research before locking myself into anything, but I believe it is fine for several reasons. 1. I intend to credit any work used from any source. 2. I am not in any way seeking monetary gain from this project, as copyright laws are aimed at ensuring artists receive both the credit due to them and any monetary compensations, I believe we are fine, after all HOMM 3 was also copyrighted, and I believe it could be argued the entirety of this project could then be argued as infringement. Though since no one is profiting from this expansion, I don't think there is anything to worry about.

As fine as WoG that used other copyrighted games arts or other mods that used Warcraft models (old groove town).
I would gladly use that high quality graphics for standalone open source game based on Vcmi. It is a pitty as those assets are really nice. Online game while still has a page seems more or less dead (last post or messages from 2014) . So yeah that is what I meant too bad those assets were not released on cc-by-sa , public domain etc.
