Town conversation - good riddance, was a retarded feature. And about town screens. Do not make same mistakes BH did. After glorious H5 3D town screens going for 2D was a huge step backwards. Make 3D town screens. You can make a 2D too, for those who complain about long loading times (ffs, buy new PC, stop playing on a potato). Just make it changeable in settings. So everyone will be satisfied. Those with trashy-ass PCs and ppl like myself with high-end rigs.

iWellplay I personally see 2.5D and 2D as same thing. It's 2014, not 1998 or w/e year you prefer more. Nival did great job at making 3D town screens and that was made in 2006. So you know, almost 9 years have come to past and technologies became more advanced for sure, and I see no reasons to make 2D (2.5D if you wish, which is the same crap) instead of 3D. Besides, it's AAA game as far as I'm concerned

3D towns 3D towns... I only see this kind of comments nowadays. Yes it's good eyecandie, but I rather they spend more time on making a good game with good factions. They took a real big challenge with some decisions like non-random skills or control area system preserved. Because I really think this won't work as good as previous system, though I hope I'm wrong.

+ 2D towns can be very immersive, if well done ;)

so u dont care about functionality? and I just dont know why all have the oppinion, that 3D will be better looking than 2D.
Personally I think the H5 Townscrrens are just ugly and I prefer the H2 and H3 screens, because they are just beautiful

correct me if I'm wrong, but what's wrong with functionality in Heroes V? all main functions seems to be pretty accessible while you have nice background living it's own life.

and if you don't understand my words, so I'll expand: I am CARE about functionality as much as I CARE about graphics. in my mind it's not the 2 things which can't co-exist (but in your mind it seems to be axioma)

Apart from academy in h5 the townscreens were perfectly functional. As long as the important buildings, like the fort, stands out and is easy spotted i dont see the problem.
I think aesthetics is important in games and breaking the, from what i've seen, absolutely beautiful rich enviroment in the world map with a static 2d screen, even if its a nice pice of 2d art, really breaks the feeling of the game.

yes 3d towns would be great, it show a picture of each race and faction in detail, 2d towns are too simple and ugly, I think 3D town in H5 is more wonderful than 2d in H3 or H4

I love all these people that say "stop complaining about city screens, gameplay is what matters". I'm sorry I didn't realise the 2 were mutually exclusive and it is too much to ask for both? Heroes games have always been about both. If you're looking for gameplay and care nothing for graphics then go play ASCII game while the rest of us play a Heroes 7 that we convinced the designers to do a good job at both in.

After hard and brain-melting battles I like to enter one of my cities to jump into blissy Haven or inspiring Sylvan atmosphere. Or to dive into mysterous Necropolis. Or freez my breah by looking at Academy. Spend about 3-5 minutes doint nothing but watching flying camera (or rotating city by mouse) and listening the town music. Really relaxant effect. After such pauses you may run into new battles and make new turns with inspiration and without any boring.So the principle of One more turn works!

aevena_maxima 
October 13, 2014 16:03:39

It's hard to imagine such relaxing by starring at static 2D art. Then you receive only 1/2 from setting. At least, music remains. I really think that it's right attitude to have balance between brain-melting battles and relaxant cities. Your cities is your homes after all! So let them be true masterpieces!

But what's wrong with UBI this time? They could acquire additional studio or employees special to make 3D cities. They working on Watch_Dogs, but same time going to release something with cartoonish 2D??

Dear developers, I love the way you do latest changes. Please make 3D cities! Gamers are supposed to just dive into those beautiful 3D cities while managing them. It tooks 1/3 of gameplay at all. So let it be really exciting and awesome experience!

-With love. Do the best that you can!

In Heroes Of Might And Magic games, 3D Cities have no place! The most important part will allways be the gameplay, not the graphics. I would rather play H7 in 2D gfx and with gameplay as catchy as H3, than H7 with full 3D gfx and mediocre gameplay!! Devs should focus on the gameplay and not so much on the gfx... Just my opinion ...

I hope that Necropolis pyramid is just for the sake of the blog post, and not actual design route. Because I really want that hauntish Necropolis back, from Heroes 3 or at least Heroes 5. This obelisk town is not to my liking.

i couldnt agree more. doesnt really feel hauntish, but feel ultra green and cultural. i want necro to non-cultural like in inferno town. undeads may come from all races, from all around ashan. i dont see a logical point in to make it with specific-cultural-theme.

Agreed. Making that obelisk/pyramid-town seems like cutting corners big-time for necro. I'd expect epic 2d-towns full of "life"(pun intended) and details since they aren't bringing 3d-towns back.

Also I don't wanna see those glowing "necrolites" anymore. H6 had more than enough for next few games. Maybe make them a bit scarier/rougher looking units. The h5 red-neck beer-belly zombies still would make me laugh if they weren't such horrible units ;P

I agree, but seeing the point where the story of the necropolis arrived, it would be good a fusion between the 2 sides. I mean, hauntish and spiritual.

That's...not what I meant. I meant development resources.
Making games costs a lot of money, especially when people demand everything be rendered in 3D, even if it doesn't need to be or is less than 10% of the gameplay. Instead of them modeling 3D cities they should be modeling a dynamic battle and adventure map, where you spend much, much more time in Heroes games on average.
