It is so disappointing.... The Community startet a Shitstorm because there was no Townscreen in Heroes 6. They(We) tried to make clear, that the Townscreen is very essential for the game. PLUS most of the Heroes-Player loved the Townscreen in Heroes 5. It was innovative, awesomely animated and not JUST a 2D Picture. SO PLEASE TELL MY WHY YOU MADE THE TOWNSCREEN SO UNBELIEVABLE LOVELESS? It is 2015 and you can´t do better than 1999.... I pre-ordered the game but i am considering to not "un-buy"it
I meant iam considering not to buy it....
Town screens in Heroes VI were better to my mind :( ... More adult/fantasy
i'm a little disappointe,d I hope they will enhance them
With these kind of screens, I am not going to buy this game. That cartoon candy painting in far distance will totally break my immersion and actual town feel in the game. That just reflects Ubisoft attitude towards this game.
maybe heroes 8 will have the screens that match todays standards. Even today browser games have at least as good or even better artwork. This is just pathetic.
Of course they have made it a bit better. But it still has the major problems. I would say the new version is just bad. This first version is really bad.
Look people they show updated haven townscreen on steam store :o
Now it's look more lively and town looking :D (in my opinion)
people seem to be complaining about the dragon but forget that in H3 grail buildings were as bulky...i personally like it
Look again h3 haven town grail structure. It isnt nearly as ridiculous as that.
Looks very peaceful...
Ville sympa mais je trouve le bâtiment du graal beaucoup trop voyant par rapport au reste de la cité !
"However, like it was on previous games, this spell only can teleport you to the nearest town."
Not exactly true, you could teleport to any town you like in H3 with Expert Earth Magic.
Although, to be fair, Town Portals do give you some control of the teleport spell, just don't build them in towns that don't hold any strategical value.
so much negativity here. i am happy to not see a bunch of blind fan boys but many of these comments are just plain disrespectful. could this look better? of course. is it total crap? not even close
They are disrespectful, because that screen is total garbage. If you cant figure out why, dont wonder ohter people opinions.
Why don't you look at the more recent post with the Haven TS that has major modifications to it and looks much better?
Well yes, it looks a bit better. But it`s just unbelievable how they has to change after people sees how bad they are. I have to say it, their "professionalism" to design a town is very bad.
Also Heroes 7 necro town.. The big spider.. That really takes the cake.
@Samuli11 Really this post even said the the town screen was a work in progress when it first came out. I found it funny then and it's funny now that you think the only reason it changed was due to SC input. If anything this proves their "professionalism" because we got to see an image that wasn't completely done to being in a basically finished state now. Somehow though certain SC members can't understand game development and hop at the moment to tell Limbic why they won't be buying this game.
Heroes 7 uses old concept arts same castles/races same gameplay and it bought an already well known engine to use... yet you claim you don't have money to develop proper town screens... what are you spendin the money on ?!!?!? another shitty DRM ?!?!?
Heroes 5 had a brilliant representation of the Haven castle .... this is nothing but a weak cheap concept art.
basically heroes 7 is suppose to be the combination of the best in each of the old games ... so if you want to do it .. do it properly and the best thing from heroes 5 was the amazing town screens - bring them back do a vote on it and you will see how people are way more into it .... than you ever imagine.
Farms around ... housing in the city and out side of the city (maybe some windmills and watermills)... market place should feel like people live around it and that it is not just a small tent ... academy already has floating islands- remove the one from here. the wall seems shitty ... make it seem more robust and strong tall and in light ! training locations can seem more soldiery ...
most important - remove that dragon its horrible and unfitting bring back the angel statue.
It reminds me Heroes 2 and i like it
please change the golden dragon
