And i'm saying this even though i support the spider theme...

No need for everything to have spider stone legs...

And where are the tombstones?

Also, some purple and white, even a hint of red would make the city look much better

Finally, it looks like a single building and not a town of sorts... Maybe some more towers, some tombstones here and there, some minor buildings will make it feel more compact...

Yes, they look better than H6. But H6 and H4 town screens are NOT the standard we should be looking to beat. They are examples of what to avoid, not replicate and barely improve upon.

Exact middle of the screen, building one third up from the bottom. Bunch of tombstones. Smack dab in the middle.

Claiming that there aren't any tombstones is a blatant falsehood or a lazy oversight on your part.

adambjpoole 
February 04, 2015 21:02:36

Kimarous, I really can't tell if you're being sarcastic. This is supposed to be a Necropolis. You think a smattering of tombstones grouped in a single spot (which I actually had to scour to find after reading your comment) create a sense of death and undeath in this supposed city? Those tombstones won't even be there until you build that dwelling either.

ERRATA:NOW I UNDERSTAND: OFFICIAL REASON
H7 takes place around the time when the Spider Cult was at its strongest, which explains why it's much less prominent in H6 (it was only beginning) and in H5 (after the War of the Broken Staff, the unity of the Spider Cult was broken and each Deathlord went to carve his/her own little dominion in Heresh). At least Spider haters can take comfort in the fact that after H7 we'll never see a Necropolis with such a strong spider theme ever again ;)

Absolutely yes! insted of Necropolis we now have Spidropolis.
Непонятно, чем их так не устраивает тематика нежити, что они НАСТОЛЬКО превращают некромантов в паукомантов. Нет, понятно, что они поклоняются Асхе а она паук, но все же, это уже до смешного нелепо. Грусть печаль тоска

I agree Heroes V Necropolis was great and the standard we should evolve too. But strangely, i see in this town some "transition" from Heroes 6 necropolis to Heroes 5 necro (pyramids being replaced by spider legs, that would be curved up and stilized into spikes by the time of Heroes V, when the spider for necro is just a symbol and not a religion).

But that might be just me.

The multiple giant moons, the dark misty forest with glowing lights.. the huge dark spires with eerie red and green windows.. lots of graves and bats flying around. It was awesome.

This crap isn't even close.

Necropolis should be about UNDEADS, not about spiders. The spider-theme should only be symbolic. This is way over the top, excessive. What is the point?

At least a skeleton or a grave or something...
