Cathedral and 3 towns released!


#222

That is the reason why I don’t want to create all puzzle maps. I really don’t know the disappearing priority.


#223

Pieces that uncover first (in the corners) have index 0,1,2,3 and so on. Pieces in middle of the screen that are displayed at the end, have the last index numbers.


#224

That means I need to set the piece which would reveal the grail to index 47 ?


#225

Grail is placed randomly around the middle of the puzzle screen. So yes -middle part should have index 47, his neigbours - 46, 45, 44…


#226

But how can I avoid this? sometimes 47 would be revealed earlier than 46.
puz


#227

Hm… Such situations take place also in original H3 puzzle mechanics (especially when only few monoliths on the map)! Important is, not to clear Grail position too early.


#228

Sure, it also can be acceptable if grail would not be revealed too early.


#229

Could you find the original AI files for me? AI might be weaker than last year’s version.
Or just made the AI which can recruit creatures every turn for me?

I am not satisfied for current AI, I apperiate if you help me to do this…


#230

I don’t know. I always was not too smart. Maybe use builds from 6th April, before AI renew was started?


#231

Thanks for creating this video.


#232

Did you have to make the background from the old pictures? It came out good.


#233

It costed me a lot of time for doing this, just cut the background from original picture for Cathedral.


#234

I have done this before it is a lot of work. Good job


#235

Really don’t know which files can be replaced…I am afraid that if some new updates will be replaced to pervious version…furthermore, it crashes when I win or loss the game. So campaigns cannot be finished.


#236

Bastille and Preserve are crushing my VCMI without log entries


#237

You can download them from Wiki mod list


#238

Could you tell me when AI has been updated? I cannot find this… hard to change it…there are many branches…and which file affects more for recruitment?

@ By003
Great job. You really can make cities at a high level.
Some time ago I gathered a file with the proposed cities and interpretations. Perhaps some of them will inspire you to create a new one.
Towns are formed by fractions of three towns per faction. Here is the current state of things:

I have different design idea for new towns, so I write to illustrate my design styles.
Alignment
Layer 1: Castle(Life), Rampart(Nature), Dungeon(Chaos), Necropolis(Death), Tower(Order), Stronghold(Might)
*Layer 1 refers to towns who have only one alignment, also be called basic alignments.
Layer 2: Conflux(Life+Nature), Fortress(Chaos+Might), Inferno(Chaos+Death)
*Layer 2 refers to the new town which is combined by adjecent basic alignments
New town examples: Asylum(Order+Death), Cove(Nature+Chaos), Pavillion(Eygpt, Might+Death)
Layer 3: Cathedral(Life+Death), Preserve(Order+Nature), Ruins(Nature+Death)
*Layer 3 refers to the new town which is combined by separated basic alignments.
There is no example in original H3.
Layer 4: Towns which are created from three alignments.
Example: Regna(two Islands): Life+Nature+Chaos; Abyss: Life+Order+Nature.

That’s my own system for new designers.

BTW: I suppose next town for me is Fairy Town. With a new design of fairy tales.
