For me, the tree was good in H5 becaus of 3D, to turn around. In H7, I would see more the sanctuary.

Never liked the H5 townscreen for Sylvan, so I vote for the Sanctum.
But whatever wins, I hope they implement a terrain specific townscreen, that we will not have summerplain towns, while on the map the town stands on snow...

I dont think so... H4 is a disaster. And it's odd when a big tree stand in the lava.

I'll place my vote for The Forest Sanctum aswell. I loved the look from H5 but nostalgia is just that, nostalgia. Something new and fresh for Sylvan is very welcome as they make their return.

Similarities are bound to be seen. Everyone has their own perspective and there is not many things that are original these days. Let's just hope for some amazing creativity no matter what the results turn out to be.

Avatar is SI-FI. Right? Well, it was the one time, i watched it back in the day. I wont validate those paper-thin comparisons.

I'm not saying, that the tree is originality itself. But, at least, it is an established lore element. Not to mention - AN ACTUAL CITY - and not some temple. I will leave those to Sanctuary.

Tragal it is town screen. Not one building. All buildings will be placed on this screen. And in case of the TREE it will look like new year tree with toys on it's branches, as it seems.

I just want to say this to everyone, even if you are not doing it. Stop being so rude and mean to the people at Ubisoft. They are putting their time and money into this game. So please show them some respect.

The devs of HoMM VII are offering the community input to the game. If they 'just wanted our money' they wouldn't offer us any input at all.

Slum you have to remember that devs are players like us. Bunch of ppl many of them in their 20ties and 30ties. Together we are forming fanbase of heroes games. Just because they are being paid for doesn't mean that all they care is how much they can earn. Personally I am honored that fellow heroes players lucky enough to work on the next iteration of our beloved game reach out to us common bread eaters and allow us to tag along and participate in this great adventure that making heroes game is.

Interesting vote!

Both are nice, but I'm thinking Forest Sanctum, since the Tree Island was done before in "Heroes 5", and haven't the town screens been different for each faction in each of the games to date? That said, I like Kobaltmaster's idea of marrying them both together, though! :-D

Thank you for "redistributing" that idea, but it's not just mine. Some fans happen to agree on that concept. I am glad you too are one of them ^_^

I love them both. And truthfully i like tree a lot. But i voted Sanctum, because i wanna see something different and also because in my opinion it fits better with the chosen lineup :)
Though seeing the full picture of both artworks would be awesome

I want to see the full picture period. If seeing a green fortress is what i get, i will vote accordingly. Right now both seem interesting and if they can be jointed into one as someone suggested it would be much much better. But with a small fraction of the image, i can vote only subjectively. Now, you say all have a fortress. Haven has a town, Orcs will have desert pavillions, Wizards will have flying buildings and Delves a cave... Necro probably ziggurat so.... not many fortresses

Aw, C'mon people, not the tree again...
BTW, I'm not maligning the art, it is beautiful. I just find the concept of Tree centric fort trite.

You think that, in a giant FOREST, every f***ing city can be built on a giant tree standing in a island in the middle of a big lake? In adittion that its impossible to find so many lakes, That is the best way to shout the enemies: "hey guys, our cities are so easy to find. you only have to search for a lake in a map. c'mon, come to burn our cities!". Anyway, I see that you are a lost case. I gave up

Companion_In 
November 08, 2014 16:53:25

I would agreed but look at the alternative - this building is rising above trees instead of been hidden by it. That is as stupid but less beautiful. I would prefer a city among thousands of trees in the center of the forest - that is something truly new and with lighting could be really astonishing

Remember, screens towns now are not in 3D. And the giant tree will drastically differ in this respect from Heroes 5.

please make townscreens more realistic (as in H3), and not as cartoony as we saw in the beta (and in heroes 6 after several patches)

i wander where did you see realistic towns in H3, they were good in those times but today we want smth due to the modern technology in comuter graphics.

Doesn't help with more advanced computer graphics when artists make townscreens bland and blah (like h6). Say yes to distinctive townscreens with personality! (townscreen from h7 haven looks a bit bland, but on the right track I'm)

The forest sanctum reminds me of Heroes 1-4 setting. I liked the idea of an idyllic, but majestic, community hidden in the woods. In H5 - Did all towns just happen to have this humongous tree?

It was a beautiful design in H5 though, it was uniqie, but it really just makes more sense to me, that a town should look like a camp/fort/settlement than a core non-replaceable environment!

The environment in the other HOMM had a vast area that seemed like it could be expanded upon! This tree can't!

Can we vote on haven townscreen? The one we saw was pretty underwhelming and should be scrapped.

Also realism is important: the less cartoony the better. (These two sylvan design inspirations are very nice).
