This map have so many great concepts for towns. And meanwhile, actual MMH7 towscreens are like a bad joke.
Soo true, and not a single Necropolis looks like a spider
The map have great concepts for towns and I thought that they can use them as townscreens until I realized that this was Impossible due to the lack of consistency when upgrading a town.
@Iwane - they can still be used as concepts
*has -.- #GUEB
It would take just couple of modifications in photoshop to make them functional. Segragate some buldings, add some other things etc.. They would be great as a base.
They can but it will be extremely hard to design how each upgraded city will look if they want to make each city individually (that will be a great new if they make some good art even if there were some ugly ones(not every town will look pretty)). Of course they can use some of them as a general concep to build the townscreens.
Concept is good other things are just work+ time. Concept is what matters
This is from the H6 intro video
I am guessing they have other things to do. Besides, this was done by Marzhin in free time, as a hobby, rather than done at work.
a lot of naga info, and i like it :-p also, man, that image of the dwarven capital is the one they should use as townscreen if they get exspansion!
hmm edit button, where are you ;-)
--https://static14.cdn.ubi.com/udev/prod/maps/Necropolis_MMH5_Concept.jpg that necro town is pretty nice
looks really awesome, i hope we may use it to our advantage in various games from now on, starting with h7.
as a hardcore role-player guy, i can try to use this map in a FRP game... just imagine a giant ass version of this map on table :)
thats really some good-functional work, whoever came up with this map idea and worked on, made a really good and golden job.. and have my personal thanks!
im impressed by every element on this map, their small descriptions and pictures..
if this is yours creation, then i must bow before you.
ubisoft, give this man a cookie!
also im very curious of Tor-Myrdal picture. can i have a high resolution for it? is it town screen for fortress? cause it looks awesome.
The art is from the Ashan Compendium, it is a reworked version of a concept art originally created for Heroes V Hammers of Fate.
thanks for the answer, so can it be used it again? for h7? cause its a developed version, it seems legit to do.
im pretty much sure everyone gonna love it.
It's good to see that this feature has rekindled your enthusiasm for this game in such a way that you have found your way back to our most noble Council.
Speaking of games (I like RP's too, by the way), someone should turn the world of Ashan into some sort of Monopoly game. I mean, there is a Monopoly for everything now, even Frozen. Select a specific era, a specific installment in the franchise, and have a go at it.
What about this?
I WANT THAT GAME :D.
Seriously, it is a board game already? Similar to or different than Monopoly? Screw it, I want it.
It looks more like Risk, rather than Monopoly. Which leaves options to make a HoMM Monopoly version xD.
That is exactly I was loooking for, cool thng indeed!
Big +, this MUST be included in the game, it would be a big shame and waste of such a great work!
Hope also for some stats, explanation, economy (always wants more, and more!)... But as it is now, I am completely satisfied!
If the ts, future expansions of this site and the game itsewlf will be as the stuff like this and the story- I have no doubt that M&M: Heroes 7 will be absolutely stunning and breathtaking masterpiece!
Interesting view - would love mooooore artwork; and, maybe a map of Sheogh to counter Ashan (even though we're not seeing the demons as a faction in MMHVII)? Pretty please?
you should get upvotes over 9000 strong.
Great idea about the map of sheogh!
This map is the best!
It would be great if you make this map downloadable.
Put urgently an "Ignore" button in this site, so we can read posts without ALL that "feminist quota" and "male druids" pollution...
P-L-E-A-S-E, for God's sake!
I'm begging! o.O
PS. The map is awesome =D
You mean for Asha's sake. This site is full of Chaos, power of Urgash.
Jeremiah is a spawn of Urgash. Can't you see his title? "The Destroyer"
There's already an ignore button in this website, the ignore button they pushed before making arachnopolis or when reading these posts asking for an ingnore button. \o/
@Sussugamon: Still better design than Greyopolis from HoMM 3.
That's the least they could do after what, 15 years? But not good enough, sadly.
How can you claim this "Greypolis" is better than H7's Necropolis?
It should be lifeless and reek of disease and dark magic and not being a circus with spider legs!
I thought on that argument as well, but seeing that 95 there made me wonder if he's born on 1995, and then, not that akin to older graphics, not considering things like the grey hue being the EXACTLY thing that made it lifeless, that the town had a unique design, unlike all we have seen in H7. In fact, the only thing that would make H7 look better is the pixel resolution and the softwares used to paint it. But that's only my personal opinion on that. Spiders all about is another matter.
@ Marzhin93 I beg you to give a lot of avatars! Biara
Please, please, please give us more avatars ^.^
Sarah , please
Zehir, Cyrus, Mahhir :D
Irina, Sandor and Raelag !
Lol I become more and more confident that Lighty is a part of ubi team, responsible for entertainment xD
I mean, it would be such a boredom without him haha
(even considering a fact that he still didn't prepare a poem in Greek).
No_poem-No_love, Lighty </3
do you wna t a poem?you will have it:
οταν πρωτοιδα την ακαδημια ενιωσα κατι απιθανο
λες και πεταω στον εβσομο ουρανο
οταν ειδαι το πρωτο γκαργκουλ το εφτυσα
το κγολεμ απεβιωσε σαν μια μυγα
φως με στο σκοταδι!
In Greek, In sound. YAY! Here we go, DrunkenAvatarX :D \o/
your entire post and reply made my morning.
Wow, who said that ashan and its lore is boring. Seriosuly i am loving every new lore update they give us.
And the Naga capital of Naryia, i would love to see a TS of that town
That would be great! Though I'm not sure if it'll work as well with all the units...
I'm not much into-the-lore man, but I'm pretty fine with Ashan. Gameplay is what bothers me a lot. Because if I want some fiction stories, I'd just read a nice book.
I agree, you have nothing with these stories if the game is not working. But i will give the person credit for making this.
There are many ways to read a story. Playing it is also a way. We can both play the game and enjoy the stories it tell. Its just the way it needs to be implemented that is the problem now
Well, Marzhin is doing serious improvements on the writing side!
@Marzhin, Man, If you made it just in your spare time, huge respect for this.
Very nice and well done - neraly all lore from H5-6, DoC and MMX is shown... but nevertheless I have questions about few places:
- Sayana Nagas on Sahaar Desert?
- Crusaders from DoC?
- Eternal Empress Daugthers trapped in ice of Deep Mounstains?
- Elemental Forges of Summer and Fall? ;)
I'd like to know about this too :) I understand there's only so much you can put on one map, but you guys have woken up all the lore fans now :P
And of course:
- Angel's sky-city with Hall of Memories from H6 tears epilogue
- The Abyss
I'm a bit behind regarding all the plot points in DoC and Heroes Online, so I'll update the map in the future with the missing info.
The Angel city in H6 is somewhere above Soaring Heights.
The Abyss is supposed to be near / under Renekon.
And the Deep Mountains, IIRC, are part of the Dragons' Causeway.
No-Shanriya, not Shanriya:
Yukiko informed us that the third champion was located in a place called No-Shanriya. Shanriya in reverse, a reflection of the city, ts negative.
To find No-Shanriya, we had to look to the north [of Shanriya] and find the hidden reflection, the shadow cast by the city of Naga.
The strange light was not a mirage but a magical reflection, an enchanted threshold. Inside was the mirror image of Shanriya. That which was up was now down. Black was white light was dark…
And I asked about place where daughters of Eternal Empress supposed to be imprisoned, not about Deep Mountains themsevlses.
But thanks for answers.
Some druid pitcures
I approve it. :P
I don't care. I need more meaningful info, like ... right now?
And ... hum ... blah.
@The first: He looks like he needs to take a dump very urgently.
@The second: Is that Loki's scepter? (http://i.imgur.com/bW7GE.jpg)
@The third: That's not an elf.
@The fourth: Hi Gandalf, nice colors.
@The fifth: Barely dressed, we don't need beauty king druids.
@The sixth: That's what you get from standing still too long. Plants start to grow on you.
What about this one: http://vignette3.wikia.nocookie.net/wow/images/d/d9/DarkElf_Druid.jpg/revision/latest?cb=20080813230944&path-prefix=pl
@Marblethrone i thought we didn't wanted warcraft influences ;>
I just googled 'male elf druid' xD. Besides, I never played anything from World of Warcraft, so I don't know what is from that fanchise and what isn't :P.
"What about this one..."
Sorry, I'll have to borrow your chain vest and puke inside it. =)
Kidding. It's just that it looks stereotyped and those glowing eyes... I think I just started hating glowing things in general, so I cannot tell. The third is one of my taste, even not being an elf, if we consider elves not ever having beards, that is. Shave him, and we have an elf.
4th and 6th ones are the best, look connected to nature yet also wise.
6th one is very good and 5th one looks very badass. It's sad that we have so many good designs for the druids but Ubi decided to please the feminists. :(
This is IMPRESSIVE ! Not rather good, not nice. IMPRESSIVE ! At long last Ashan becomes a deep, complex and interesting world to play in (like enroth was for example).
The only thing i don't understand: why are the city concept arts so good in this map and so shitty in H7 ?!
So finally there's hope to get rid of this disguting childish, cartoonish and simplistic townscreens' atmosphere.
And no spiderpolis in the map !
My suggest for TS based on Ashan map:
Stronghold: Oyugum looks very good. I like both concept and atmosphere
Dwarves: Tor-Myrdal ! because dwarves must be mighty warriors instead of goofy dudes!
Haven: Few TS actually. I'll go for Eastalon. H6 concept art, but it's cool if they keep the same atmosphere.
Academy: if you decide to change/improve it, Al-Imral looks very good
Necro: Nar-Nethos for concept. Nar-Ishkun for panorama and less-green colors. Don't forget graves and no spider legs!
I also like the "unknown east" concept. A nice place for Inferno's bridgehead ! Unless they enter this world somewhere like north-east of Tor-Vettfang ?
Good night forum. Have a nice weekend ;)
Right, i'm off. I'll return when hopefully LightAvatar has sobered up a bit :)
